While on the set of her new photoshoot for Vita Coco’s new flavor, Tropical Fruit by Rihanna, the singer dished on her friendship with Katy Perry, when we can expect a collaboration from the two and why she decided to get involved with the KONY 2012 movement.
On collaborating with Katy: “We have been working on this for years. We still are trying to make a song together, Katy Perry and I. She is one of my favorite musicians, as well as one of my favorite people in the industry. She’s very uncalculated, very sure of herself, and that’s something very rare in this industry to find. The song will probably come out in a while,” she told Jill. “I won’t say that it’s happening right now, but it’s going to happen.”
On how they stay in touch: “Whenever we’re in the same city, we try to do something — whether it’s seeing each other for five minutes for a hug [or] whether it’s partying all night at some random after party for an award show. We try to hang out as much as we can, which is very rarely because we’re so busy.”
On her follow-up to Talk That Talk: “Actually, I have not started working on new music. I’ve started working on the new sound, but I haven’t started really recording yet. This year, we’ve kind of left a little room to play in other playing fields, like movies, acting [and] fashion. I’m getting into fashion a lot more, really spearheading it as a designer.”
On getting involved with the KONY movement: Twitter has brought about so many opportunities not only for me but for the foundations I work with like the KONY 2012 foundation, Invisible Children – we’ve been very active with them in trying to get the word out and spread the word and get my fans involved because the foundation is so driven by youth and their enthusiasm and their stand in things that are not okay.
