Fashion and Beauty mogul Rihanna loves challenging men in business

World acclaimed entertainer Rihanna loves “competing” with men in business.

The ‘Work’ hitmaker who has her own fashion brand Savage X Fenty and beauty brand Fenty beauty says the entrepreneurship industry is considered to be such a “man’s world” that she loves the “challenge” of going head to head with them.

Speaking during a Q&A session at the Global Conference on Women and Entrepreneurship, she said: “Overcoming stereotypes as a woman in the entrepreneurship industry, it’s an industry that’s usually looked at as a man’s industry. It’s a man’s world, so you have to work twice as hard to prove yourself and to get half as much but it doesn’t stop my fight. I love competing with men. I love that challenge, I enjoy it and I thrive on it. A lot of times people see it as a man’s world … But our strength as women, we have the power to overcome anything.”

Meanwhile, the business savvy Rihanna previously revealed she wanted to “gain respect” as a designer before releasing her own Fenty luxury fashion line.

The Oceans 8 actress said: “I’ve been slowly evolving throughout the fashion world. First wearing it, buying it, being recognised for my style and then collaborating with brands. I never just wanted to put my name on something and sell my license.

“I’m very hands-on, so I wanted to take it slowly and gain respect as a designer. I already had a relationship with them after the Versailles campaign and the make-up line, so they extended the offer to me and it was a no-brainer because LVMH is a machine. Bernard Arnault was so enthusiastic; he trusted me and my vision,” added the 9 time Grammy Award winner.

Meanwhile, as reported by The Sauce severally, fans all over the world are waiting with baited breathe for her ninth studio album dubbed ‘R9’ since the release of ‘Anti’ in 2016. She reportedly said she’s still working on recording the new material, so doesn’t have a release date in mind yet.
