Some may be anxiously awaiting on Rihanna to release new music, but the Grammy-award winning singer’s attention appears to be elsewhere: staking claim in a predominantly white fashion industry.

Rihanna recently opened up to The New York Times about her revolutionary line with Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton (LVMH), the enterprise that owns and operates Dior, Fendi and other high-end brands. As Blavity previously reported, the Barbados-born star makes history as the first woman to develop an original line with the revered label.

“Designing a line like this with LVMH is an incredibly special moment for us,” Rihanna said earlier this month. “Mr. Arnault has given me a unique opportunity to develop a fashion house in the luxury sector, with no artistic limits. I couldn’t imagine a better partner both creatively and business-wise, and I’m ready for the world to see what we have built together.”

In the latest interview published Sunday, the “Diamonds” songstress was candid regarding whether her A-list status made it easier as a Black woman to succeed in a trade monopolized by white men.

“It’s never alleviated, you know? You’re going to be Black wherever you go,” she said. “And I don’t know if it’s unfortunate or fortunate, because I love being Black So, sorry for those who don’t like it – that’s the first thing you see before you even hear my voice.”
