Rihanna Hits Back At Criticism Over Weight Gain

The singer has recently come under scrutiny from body shamers.

 Rihanna addressed the criticism that she’s gained weight recently, commenting on her “fluctuating body type” in an interview with The Cut.

When a reporter asked Rihanna what advice she’d give young women about dressing for their body type, the singer replied,

“ Well I have actually had the pleasure of a fluctuating body type where one day I can fit into something that is bodycon, “

“Than the next day- the next week, I need something oversized; I need a little crop here and a high-waist there, to hide that part, you know?”

“I really pay attention, every day, when I go into the closet and what’s working for my body that day,” she continued.

“ I feel like that’s how everyone should go after fashion, because it’s such an individual thing,”

Rihanna has shut down body shamers in the past, saying “ It’s important young girls know that it’s ok to eat what they like,”
