Answering Anna at the time, Rihanna simply said cheekily, "I don't think about stuff like that, but... God's plan! But I look forward to all of the pregnancy rumors after this interview."
Now Rihanna has a message for those who were miffed: don't worry.
At the launch party for her new "visual autobiography," she addressed the encounter with Extra, explaining why she empathized with concerned fans, but that she didn't mind, because she does eventually want to be a mom.
"A lot of women get very defensive. It's personal. It's our bodies. And, of course, it's our time," she said. "And it's not necessarily everyone's dream to be a mom, but it's mine, so I'm fine. Anna just wants to know what the people want to know."
She's not wrong!
