Rihanna talks body image, reggae album, Drake, love life with Vogue

Rihanna is becoming more and more of a fashion and beauty mogul each day, and the singer shared her ideas on her ever-growing brand in the May issue of Vogue.

The 30-year-old singer and cover star is continuing to see success from her Fenty Beauty makeup line and is about to release Savage X, a lingerie line. Both have wide ranges of foundation and nude colors to meet the demands of more than just variants of beige.

“Savage is really about taking complete ownership of how you feel and the choices you make. Basically making sure everybody knows the ball is in your court,” she said. “As women, we’re looked at as the needy ones, the naggy ones, the ones who are going to be heartbroken in a relationship. Savage is just the reverse. And you know, guys don’t like getting the cards flipped on them -- ever.”

Rihanna discussed more than fashion with Vogue. She is still working on her next album -- a reggae one.

Below are some quotes from the businesswoman on body image, her relationship with Drake and her love life, which reportedly involves Saudi businessman Hassan Jameel.

On Drake saying he loved Rihanna at the 2016 VMAs and their friendship: “The VMAs is such a fan-focused awards show, so having that energy around me, and knowing the people who had received the award in the past, made it feel like a big deal. Waiting through that speech was probably the most uncomfortable part. I don’t like too many compliments; I don’t like to be put on blast.”

“We don’t have a friendship now, but we’re not enemies either. It is what it is.”

On making time for love: “I used to feel guilty about taking personal time, but I also think I never met someone who was worth it before.”

On body image: “You’ve just got to laugh at yourself, honestly. I mean, I know when I’m having a fat day and when I’ve lost weight. I accept all of the bodies. I’m not built like a Victoria’s Secret girl, and I still feel very beautiful and confident in my lingerie.”

Cosby jury: Chief accuser was 'credible and compelling'

Speaking out for the first time, the jury that convicted Bill Cosby at his sexual assault retrial said Monday it found the comedian's chief accuser to be "credible and compelling," adding its verdict had nothing to do with the #MeToo movement or any another factor outside the courtroom.

The jury wrote in a statement that it had "absolutely no reservations" about convicting Cosby of three counts of aggravated indecent assault. The youngest member of the panel, meanwhile, said in a separate TV interview that the comedian's own words about giving women quaaludes before sex in the 1970s sealed his fate.

Andrea Constand, now 45, testified that Cosby gave her three blue pills that knocked her out and then molested her at his home in 2004. The defense said it was consensual.

Cosby settled Constand's civil suit for nearly $3.4 million in 2006, and his lawyers claimed at trial that she had framed him for the money.

But the jury rejected the defense argument.

"Simply put, we were asked to assess the credibility of Ms. Constand's account of what happened to her, and each one of us found her account credible and compelling," said the jury statement, which was dated Sunday and distributed Monday.

Juror Harrison Snyder, 22, told ABC that Cosby's 2005 deposition was the evidence that made him believe he was guilty.

"I think it was his deposition, really. Mr. Cosby admitted to giving these quaaludes to women, young women, in order to have sex with them," Snyder said on "Good Morning America."

Snyder said it "wasn't an open and shut case," but added he had no doubt the jury reached the correct verdict Thursday.

The investigation into Cosby was reopened in July 2015 after a federal judge, acting on a request from The Associated Press, unsealed portions of Cosby's deposition testimony from the civil suit he settled with Constand. In the testimony, which was read to jurors at both trials, he described giving quaaludes to women before sex in the 1970s. Cosby also described his sexual encounters with Constand, a Temple University women's basketball administrator.

Five other women testified at the retrial that Cosby had drugged and molested them as well, but Snyder said they weren't a factor in his decision.

"I don't think it really necessarily mattered that these other five women were here because he said it himself that he used drugs for other women," he said.

In its statement, the Cosby jury said its decision was not influenced in any way by factors other than what was seen and heard in the courtroom.

"After thoughtful and meticulous consideration of the information and evidence provided to us, we came to our unanimous verdict," the jury said. "Not once were race or the #MeToo movement ever discussed, nor did either factor into our decision, as implied in various media outlets."

Cosby, 80, is now a prisoner in his own suburban Philadelphia home and faces the prospect of spending the rest of his life behind bars as he awaits sentencing, likely within the next three months. His publicist has declared his conviction a "public lynching," and his lawyers have vowed to appeal.

"This is what they wanted," Cosby told the New York Post's Page Six after his conviction. He referred to prison as "that place."

The Associated Press does not typically identify people who say they are victims of sexual assault unless they grant permission, as Constand has done.
