If given the opportunity to ask Rihanna any question in the world, I am slightly panicked at the thought of what might come out of my mouth.

Thankfully, I am not famous and so I do not have to contend with these sorts of conundrums on a daily basis. However, Elle gave a weird and wacky assortment of “friends and fans” the chance to ask Rihanna literally anything they wanted. Notable friends and/or fans included Tyra Banks, April Bloomfield of The Spotted Pig restaurant (?), Danielle Steele, Zac Posen, Pharrell and of course, David Copperfield, a magician that I briefly confused with David Blaine.

I would love to hear what April Bloomfield had to say to Rihanna, but until I leaf through the October issue of Elle in my gynecologist’s waiting room, I will content myself with this brief exchange between Ms. Fenty and the magician.

David Copperfield, Magician: I’m not kidding, this is a real offer: I can make you disappear and reappear anywhere in the world. Where do you want to go, and why?

Rihanna: Ten minutes before I lost my virginity…and I’m holding you to that offer. LOL.


That is a perfect answer and I would now gladly read an entire conversation between David Copperfield, Magician and Rihanna, Beautiful Person and Singer. In other news, Rihanna is unleashing Fenty Beauty on the world on September 8. Very exciting. Per a photo she posted on Instagram, the packaging looks a teensy bit like Kim Kardashian’s Kontouring Stick empire, KKW Beauty, but I suppose millennial pink will eventually come for us all.


Also inspiring is this behind the scenes video from the cover shoot for Elle. I don’t know about you, but I’m certainly inspired to buy a shitload of makeup and go to town!!
