Rihanna’s marking yet another momentous year with some brand new ink: to compensate for her lack of “booty” (as per an interview the other day), she’s increasing her tattoo count.
Marking tatoo #16 with a small red cross on her collar bone, Rihanna is now at 16 tattoos and counting. Marking – no pun intended – yet another reason she’s in the headlines this week.
As mentioned, Rihanna spoke earlier this week about losing weight and losing her curves through Harley Pasternak’s Five Factor Diet, saying “It’s actually pretty annoying. Now I don’t have a butt, I don’t have boobs. I already had no boobs to start with. So annoying! And I’m eating everything!” (Which, is kind of alarming considering Rihanna’s already quite tiny.)
But believe it or not, Rihanna’s tattoo or her decreasing size is still not the top headline: letting it slip on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show, the singer shared that after collaborating with Armani for the second time, she plans to launch her own line.
“I want to design,” Rihanna said to Seacrest. “So I’m working with designers. Designers that I respect, and companies that I respect. I want people to really trust me before I just say, ‘Buy it. Because it’s mine.'”
Valid! Looks like 2012’s the year of Rihanna.
