Rihanna is planning to expand her Fenty empire. The “Kiss It better” singer recently announced her plans to write a Caribbean cookbook that is inspired by all of her favorite Bajan foods.
In an interview with Closer, the 32-year-old mogul said the new venture was created during her time in quarantine. She said that she was able to enjoy the little things, such as cooking. “I love what I do — but I am always busy and quarantine gave me the time to do things I wouldn’t always have been able to do — watch an entire box set in a day, cook, go for walk,” she said. “It’s important we do little things we enjoy and are kind to ourselves.”
“At first, it was strange because I am not used to being still — but during quarantine, you have no choice but to be still,” she added. “Then you start to realize during lockdown you are stuck there with your own thoughts and your imagination and it really helped my creativity blossom.”
She also told the outlet what types of food and drinks she likes to consume. Not only does she love “a lot of fresh fish,” the Fenty Beauty CEO also likes “mac ‘n cheese, Shepherd’s pie and rum punch.”
Last week, REVOLT reported that the Anti songstress was planning to expand her Savage X Fenty brand with activewear and is currently seeking $100 million in funding to help with the expansion. She hired investment bankers Goldman Sachs to raise the funding, which will be used to branch into athletic-wear and boost Savage X Fenty’s presence in Europe. Rih is also seeking to maintain full control of her brand.
If the brand does expand and receive the funding, Savage X Fenty could be valued at around $1 billion.
