Abortion activist Rihanna reflected on what she’s called her “rebellious” maternity style and admitted she’s basically “challenged” herself to “push it further” than others had before.
The 34-year-old singer, a President Joe Biden supporter, has done the opposite of what most women do during pregnancy. Instead of the singer wearing outfits that consist of baggy clothes and looks that cover up her belly, she’s worn tops that show off her baby bump, even accessorizing it.
During a recent press event at an ULTA beauty store in Los Angeles, the “Umbrella” hitmaker showed up wearing a metallic silver cropped top with a low-rise sparkling skirt. She completed the look with her hair up in a ponytail and a silver belly chain.
“It’s been me personally saying, I’m not going to buy maternity clothes,” the superstar singer shared, reported Bustle in a recent piece. “I’m not gonna buy maternity pants, jeans, dresses, or [do] whatever society told me to do before.”
“When I saw women dress during their pregnancy [in the past], I’d think that that was the only way,” she added, noting she called her style “rebellious.” “So, I challenged myself to push it further and really just have fun with [maternity style]. Because there’s nothing more fun than a challenge for me.”
“Like that’s where I get creative,” the “Diamonds” hitmaker continued. “That’s where I’m forced to come up with new ideas and new ways to make it work.”
Rihanna’s social media account is filled with numerous examples of these strange maternity looks that can be seen here, posted since she revealed in January she was expecting her first child with rapper boyfriend A$AP Rocky, reported People magazine.
The outfits range from a black lace-up top and low-cut pants in one shot to a teal blue one-shoulder body suit — complete with a cutout that showed off her bump. Other looks even included a mini skirt, bikini top, leather jacket and thigh-high boots. To say the looks were daring would be a serious understatement.

The singer, born Robyn Rihanna Fenty, admitted she’s enjoyed the boost of creativity and said she didn’t “want it to end.” She has also spoken about how proud she is to be creating a life — despite her years of support for abortion access.
“There’s going to be the other side of pregnancy, which is like your ‘snap back’ body, and that’s going to be a challenge in and of itself,” Fenty explained. “So I’m looking forward to being creative in that [stage] as well.”
The “We Found Love” hitmaker’s been praised for her unique maternity looks by such stars as Kim Kardashian, Victoria’s Secret models and more.
“OMGGGGGG,” “The Kardashians” star wrote on in a post on Instagram, reported E! News. “@Badgalriri best pregnancy style ever.”
