The style icon stopped to speak with Essence about what it means to be a black woman.

“I’m a black woman. I come from a black woman who came from a black woman, who came from a black woman and I’m going to give birth to a black woman … and so it’s a no brainer,” the Barbados native said.

Rihanna went on to give props to her mother for raising her to be strong and gave props to all women of color who display Black Girl Magic on a daily basis. “My mother raised me to be an incredible woman. She’s a strong, incredible example of what to be and how to fight through obstacles in life and I’m sure her mom has also taught her. And that’s how I’m going to be. We’re impeccable. We are impeccable, we’re special, and the world is going to have to deal with that.”
