It’s not R9, but we’ll take it! On Monday (Jan. 20), Rihanna released Rihannazine, a special collection of interviews curated and co-created by the superstar in collaboration with i-D.
Among the luminaries RiRi interviewed for the ‘zine are supermodel sisters Gigi and Bella Hadid, Emmy-winning multi-hyphente Lena Waithe, and up-and-coming rappers Rico Nasty and Young M.A.
