This Is Not A Drill: Rihanna Is Living In London

Well, it kinda explains that Sainsbury’s bag in her Instagram story...

You'd have thought we would have noticed by now - but Rihanna is officially living in London and has been for some time. Yes, we had our suspicions when we all spotted that Sainsbury’s bag in her Instagram story - but now RiRi has confirmed the news herself.

Revealing all in a new interview with the New York Times, the singer explained that she moved to London earlier this year to be closer to her Fenty team who are based in Paris and Italy. (Her boyfriend, Hassan Jameel - who she started dating in early 2017 - also lives in the capital too.)

And while we think we’d recognize Rihanna anywhere, unbelievably, the superstar said that she is able to walk around ‘incognito’ without being recognised, saying that one of her favourite things is ‘walking around the block.’

Though she's already made it clear that she's a big fan of Sainsbury’s, the star also said that she is a big fan of a ‘cute little Jamaican market’ near where she lives. She said, ‘The world can really make you believe that the wrong things are priority, and it makes you really miss the core of life, what it means to be alive. It could literally be walking outside in the sun. That makes me happy. Like going to the grocery store — you know, there’s a cute little Jamaican market near where I live right now.’

So, living in London means that - just like the rest of us - Rihanna will have to put up with the horror of the tubes at rush hour, paying upwards of £5.50 for a pint - and the rain. She’s more like us than we could ever have imagined.

Fenty Icon Semi-Matte Refillable Lipstick, £18

"Struggling to find a universal red that works with darker skin tones? Icon covers every shade from warm terracottas to cool toned, blue reds, in a highly pigmented, semi matte finish. I am evangelical about recommending them. I love shade Grill Master for an everyday red, and the precise bullet means no need for a lip liner to get neat colour." Remy Farrell, Fashion and Beauty Assistant

Fenty Beauty Full Frontal Volume, Lift & Curl Mascara, £21

'I'm a mascara junkie (it's in the job description), so I like to think I know a thing or two about the best wands out there. This impresses me. Its unusual, 'flattened teardrop' shape put me off at first, but I quickly got the knack of pressing the flat side up against lashes, before pulling upwards (rather than rolling) and using the other, comb-like side to separate and fan individual lashes out (this side works wonders for bottom lashes, too).' Beauty Director, Joely Walker.

Fenty Beauty Liquid Killawatt Fluid Freestyle Highlighter, £24

"I'm a magpie when it comes to gold, and I can't help but be drawn to buying new highlighters. My latest favourite is the Liquid Killawatt in Honey Hawtie. A little dab goes a long way, and unlike some powder highlighters, there's no chalky finish: just a supreme glow." Remy Farrell, Fashion and Beauty Assistant

Whether I'm baring shoulders via a Bardot top in a beer garden, or my legs are finally getting to see the light of day in the beach bar on holiday, it's this finishing touch that I reach for. That lustrous dose of shimmer luxes my look up a treat.' Beauty Editor, Annie Vischer

Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer, £17

Pro Filt'r Foundation - £27

'I love a matte finish, and that's why this is is my go-to - it hydrates my skin without being shiny. Being mixed race can sometimes make it hard to find a true match for my complexion, but this foundation comes in 50 shades which meant I could find mine perfectly.' Former Castings and Bookings Assistant, Chloe Medley

Fenty Beauty Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Bronzer, £28

'I'm calling it: cream bronzing is the way to go, especially with this cream bronzer. It has such a lightweight, sheer consistency you can slowly build it up (I used a big, bristled brush for this) to carve out your cheekbones and warm up your face. There's 7 shades to choose from spanning both cool and warm undertones.' Former Beauty Writer, Emma Stoddart

Fenty Skin Hydra’Reset Instant Recovery Glycerin Hand Mask, £18

"After 2 years of feverish washing and sanitising, it felt only right to treat my hands to something a little bit more nourishing. This has the same tropical scent as the Butta Drop body moisturiser I already love, and locks in hydration with a glossy sheen. Is there anything more decadent than applying a mask before bed and letting it do all of the work?" Remy Farrell, Fashion and Beauty Assistant
