Rihanna Says She’s Having A Baby By 40 With Or Without A Man & I Felt That In My Spirit

Our favorite bad girl might have 99 problems but a d*ck ain't one.

I recently took a look around my circle and realized that I'm the only one who isn't a mom. As I approach my 27th birthday, this is a sobering thought.

As I straddle this hump that is a quarter-life crisis, I realize that while my biological clock is still ticking, I no longer have the time or the energy to pour into sh*t that doesn't serve me and this is true when it comes to every area of my life––professional opportunities, friendships, and most especially, romantic relationships, and in her recent exclusive with British Vogue, our favorite bad girl revealed that after her most recent birthday, she has that same energy.

The singer, who ended her long-term relationship with her ex-Saudi billionaire bae, Hasaan Jameel, earlier this year explained that as she settles into her 30s, she has a higher vision for her future and a much lower tolerance for bullsh*t. She told the publication:

"Since I turned 32, I'm realizing life is really short. You don't have a lot of time to tolerate shit, you know? You put so much on your plate. When you're overwhelmed, you need to start cutting things out. And I'm overwhelmed too much. What's happening now is that I'm going back to black and white. My grey area is shutting down."

In lieu of her very lucrative business dealings, aggressive philanthropic work, and upcoming studio album, Rihanna has now decided to put her dating life on hold and shift her attention to securing a bag. While this workaholic says that non-stop late nights and early mornings can become taxing, her hustle is inspired by this very important reason:

"I'm working like this now so that I don't have to in the future. I know I will want to live differently."

Thanks to technology, women are finally able to take the wheel when it comes to our biological clocks and Rihanna says that she's willing to take that ride alone if she has to. When the multihyphenate hustler was asked where she sees herself in 10 years, she revealed that she'll be well on her journey into motherhood, with or without a man and honestly, same sis.

"Ten years? I'll be 42! I'll be ancient. I'll have kids—three or four of 'em."

While others may not be in agreement with Rihanna's potential path to motherhood, she says that it's a choice that she's made with confidence.

"Hell, yeah. I feel like society makes me want to feel like, 'Oh, you got it wrong…' They diminish you as a mother if there's not a dad in your kids' lives. But the only thing that matters is happiness, that's the only healthy relationship between a parent and a child. That's the only thing that can raise a child truly, is love."

Gabrielle Union is not here for the label stepparent. While she became a stepparent after marrying Dwyane Wade in 2014, that doesn't mean that she wants to be defined by it. The actress spoke about the dislike of that term during her appearance on Glennon Doyle's "We Can Do Hard Things" podcast.

It was actually pretty close to this time last year when I penned the piece "How To Get Through The Holidays If You Don't Observe Them". Unlike some of the other articles that I write for the site, I pulled that one from very personal experience. Being that my personality is very wired to "be good" on something once I know its origin, holidays are something that I tend to take a pass on; this includes Thanksgiving (some insightful reads on its origin are found here, here and here). Still, this doesn't mean I'm not aware of the fact that many people use this time of year to reflect on their blessings and to say "thanks" for all the good that has come their way. Since I like to write on relationships a lot, I thought to myself, "Why not come up with ways for people to show gratitude to their significant other?"

I didn't want to say that I was having bad luck. That's not something I'd ever want to speak into existence over my life. But I will say something wasn't right. I had a few coins stacked in my purse from a one-time project as well as from an ongoing one. Then I received emails from not one but two publications within days apart asking me if I'd like to contribute a few articles every week. Opportunities and money were flowing in. If you follow the law of attraction, you'd say I was vibrating on a high frequency.

Tinashe has learned a lot about her mental health while growing up in the entertainment industry. The singer/songwriter began dancing at four years old and had her first movie role at five years old.

From there, she went on to be in a girl group The Stunners and act in TV shows like Two and a Half Men. Now as an independent artist focusing solely on her music, the "All Hands on Deck" singer opened up about the struggles she faced in the industry.

My favorite time of the year is the start of the official boot season which begins during the transitional period between summer and fall. What's most exciting about the sudden drop in temperatures is stepping back into those sleek pair of boots for the first time in months. Whether zipping up oldies but goodies or investing in a new fall 2021 boot trend, this year is all about the calf boot. Specifically, this is the best option when easing your summer clothes into the appropriate fall looks.
