Just like the rest of us, Rihanna used her time in quarantine to binge-watch a few of her favorite shows and indulge in home-cooked meals. According to the bad gal herself, her quarantine cooking routines inspired her cookbook project. Fortunately for the singer, quarantine has been an opportunity for her to enjoy the simple luxuries of life outside of her busy schedule.
“I love what I do – but I am always busy, and quarantine gave me the time to do things I wouldn’t always have been able to do – watch an entire box set in a day, cook, go for a walk,” she told Closer. “It’s important we do little things we enjoy and are kind to ourselves.”
The singer, who is rumored to be dating rapper A$AP Rocky, is spending the 2020 holidays in her native Barbados. With all the extra time she’s found amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Rihanna says she’s been able to let her creativity thrive.
“At first, it was strange because I am not used to being still – but during quarantine, you have no choice but to be still,” she said. “Then you start to realize during a lockdown you are stuck there with your own thoughts and your imagination, and it really helped my creativity blossom.”
Rihanna has yet to reveal more details about the cookbook project, including the release date, as of this post. But we’re looking forward to the recipes!
