Rihanna Purchases 12-Bedroom House in the Hollywood Hills
Rihanna covers Vogue’s April ‘Shape Issue’ with her fiery red ‘do, and inside the prominent fashion glossy the 23-year-old opens up about her career, body, father and her sprawling new 12-bedroom house in the Hollywood Hills.
The Bajan songstress revealed that she had been eyeing the pad since April 2010, but took the time to shop around before coming to a final decision. “I looked steady for two years, and it is way above the price I was looking for, but I loved it,” she told Vogue, before detailing the house’s interior. “It is all white,” she said. “There is a gun chandelier in the middle of the living room. In one room, I have this huge black-and-white painting of Bob Marley, and the wallpaper is green, yellow, and red, the African-flag colors.”
In the new issue, Rihanna also opens up about the strained relationship with her father, Ronald Fenty, who she says has been noticeably absent from her life, even after her assault in 2009. “He never called to find out how I was doing, if I was alive, nothing. He just never called,” Rihanna explained. “He went straight to the press and got a check. It really makes me question what I have become to my father. Like, what do I even mean to him?”
The ‘S&M’ performer recently wrapped up the Australian dates on her international ‘Loud’ tour, but she is scheduled to kick off her North American dates on June 4 in Baltimore before heading overseas once again to perform in Europe.
