Rihanna discusses marriage and love in a candid new chat with her “Ocean’s 8” co-star Sarah Paulson for Interview magazine.
RiRi, who is dating Hassan Jameel, admits she now sets time aside to spend with her other half, who she’s been romantically linked with since June 2017.
The singer shares, “I got into a new relationship, and it matters to me. It was like, ‘I need to make time for this.’ Just like I nurture my businesses, I need to nurture this as well. I’ll shut things down for two days, three days at a time. On my calendar we now have the infamous ‘P,’ which means personal days. This is a new thing.”
Rihanna adds when asked if she’s in love, “Of course I am,” before saying of marriage: “Only God knows that, girl. We plan and God laughs, right?”
The singer also talks about motherhood, insisting she wants to be a mom “more than anything in life.”

Rihanna continues to say of making time for herself, “It’s only the last couple years that I started to realize that you need to make time for yourself, because your mental health depends on it.”
“If you’re not happy, you’re not going to be happy even doing things that you love doing. It’d feel like a chore. I never want work to feel like a chore. My career is my purpose, and it should never feel like anything other than a happy place.”
