Rihanna Covers Fader

Rihanna Covers Fader

Rihanna will share another moment with Drake this year, 100th Fader issue cover.

Infamous bad gal Rihanna will grace the pages of The FADER’s 100th issue with cover star Drake as a double feature. In the issue, Mary H.K. Choi writes about the polarizing star and her experiences with Rihanna during this editorial and past encounters.


Rihanna allegedly agreed to answer only five questions from Choi in the cover shoot. Choi details in the article:

But as agreed, I did send over five questions. In fact, we sent five questions. I enlisted a trusted group of women who are similarly sparkly-eyed about Rihanna and her place in the pantheon of pop-culture goddesses, and we came up with some bangers. We did want to know what was so special about R8 that it warranted such a lag. We nixed all questions of men. We decided we don’t care about Leo or whatever is going on with her and Travi$ Scott. (Truthfully, we want to know everything about what’s going on with Travi$ Scott, but why waste a question with one that she’d rightfully not answer?) We wanted to know if she was ever alone and how it felt. What she does for self-care. How payroll works when you hire all your best friends?
