BRIEF EXCERPT FROM COVER STORY BY: SARA PAULSON

Rihanna, as it turns out, kind of does need an introduction. There are the bits we know: The 31-year-old Barbadian entertainer and mogul has nine Grammy Awards, 10 signature fragrances, thriving beauty and lingerie businesses, and a new ready-to-wear line for the fashion behemoth LVMH. She has broken a handful of Guinness World Records, she was the first black woman to be the face of Dior, she has acted with everyone from Cara Delevingne to Cate Blanchett, and former president Barack Obama has called her “a powerful force in the fight to give people opportunity, dignity, and hope.”

And yet, there’s another side to the blunt-smoking purveyor of genre-shattering pop that few people ever get to see. “I’m so shy,” she says, “I don’t even want you to know I’m shy.” In the three years since her chart-topping eighth album, Anti, Rihanna has kept a relatively low profile—at least for one of the most famous women in the world. But as she tells her friend and Ocean’s 8 castmate Sarah Paulson, it’s time to get back to—ugh, don’t hate us—work, work, work, work, work, work.

I don’t leave things hanging. I will work all day in a meeting, leave that meeting at 1 or 2am, and then come home with a tiny group of staff and work until 5, 7am.
