This week, in an interview with ITV1’s Daybreak, 24 year old Rihanna stated that she had learnt to "accept" her body.
"You get comfortable with the fact that that's your body and it is what it is", she said. "That, I had to learn. After doing that on set, I started doing that in the mirror. It was like, 'OK, whatever; I feel fat today, but what can you really do about it?' You just accept your body. You may not love it all the way but you just have to be comfortable with it."
Despite a noticeably slimmer figure that is envied by a myriad of admirers, Rihanna commented that she also compares herself unfavourably to others.
"You just want something else, that someone else has, but that doesn't mean what you have isn't beautiful," she said.
"People always want what you have and you always want what they have. No one is ever 100 per cent".
