Following an overwhelming year, Rihanna needs balance

American singer and businesswoman Rihanna

Rihanna is looking for “balance” following an “overwhelming” year.

The Work hitmaker – who has been dating Hassan Jameel for three years – has asked her loved ones to “forgive” her, as she’s thrown herself into so many different ventures, including her Fenty Beauty business, over the past 12 months.

“This year has been quite an overwhelming one.”

She shared a selfie and wrote alongside the picture on Instagram: “To all my friends/family/coworkers who I have yet to get back to in the past months… please forgive me. This year has been quite an overwhelming one, and I’m working on that ish called Balance. Brb. (sic)”

Meanwhile, Rihanna recently admitted having children is one of her “dreams”.

She said: “A lot of women get very defensive. It’s personal, it’s our bodies, and of course, it’s our time, and it’s not necessarily everyone’s dream to be a mom… but it’s mine, so I’m fine.”

Her comments come after she was quizzed on the subject for a recent interview, and the 31-year-old star simply replied: “Without a doubt.”
