Rihanna Opens Up About Embracing Her Natural Hair

Rihanna's Fenty Hair announcement sparked a frenzy online, with a mix of excitement and skepticism. In the commercial, the "Needed Me" singer rocked a pixie cut, which had people debating whether she was wearing a wig. However, Riri said aht aht and showed everyone that it was her real hair and began rocking her natural curls with her most recent appearance at her Fenty Hair launch.

During her event, she spoke to Extra about embracing her natural hair. "It feels light," she described. "No braids, no extensions, no weaves, it's so easy. And so easy to do."

This may be the first time that many people have seen the mom of two wear her natural hair, but we all know that she is the queen of hairstyles. She also opened up about the role hair has played in her life and career.

"A part of self-expression, a part of self-identity. A part of my mood, my being," she said. "My hair could either give me confidence or take my confidence right away. Hair makes an outfit. Like even if you're wearing the bummiest thing, as long as your hair is done, it elevates everything."

She continued, "You look sleek, you look showered, you look pretty. It's easy. It's a freedom that you have with your hair. You could not wear makeup as long as your hair is poppin'."

Like many women who grew up watching their mothers put on makeup and do their hair, Rihanna's mom was her first introduction to beauty and hair and cites her as her biggest inspiration. Talking to E! News, she said "My mom always did a top bun and I was obsessed. I always wanted my hair like that and she was the first woman that ever did baby hair in my life that I saw. So I didn't even know it was called baby hair back then, but she was the first."

One thing is certain: Rihanna's products have a unique allure that keeps fans coming back for more, and it seems like Fenty Hair is no exception, promising a new level of self-expression and ease that's hard to resist. Rihanna said she has been working on the line for four years and wanted to create something that was inclusive, which has been the through line for her all her brands. Fenty Hair officially launches June 13.

Here's What To Watch On Tubi

Tubi has been gaining popularity due to its free sign-up and a vast selection of series and films. According to Deadline, the FAST (free ad-streaming television) service has seen a 14.7% growth from May and now has similar numbers to Disney+. So while many people have joked about Tubi having low-budget movies, the numbers don't lie.

In fact, I was one of those people who didn't get the appeal of Tubi, but the more I watched it, the more I enjoyed the content. They have some of our favorite TV series, such as Scandal and Star, as well as big films like the Fast and Furious franchise and cult classic Love & Basketball.
