The holidays can certainly be a challenge when trying to stay healthy and stick to a certain diet, and according to her recent interview, even singer and business mogul Rihanna can attest. Rihanna recently took a break from promoting her various business ventures to speak with Closer magazine on how she spent most of 2020 and what she plans on doing for the holidays.

“I love what I do – but I am always busy and quarantine gave me the time to do things I wouldn’t always have been able to do – watch an entire box set in a day, cook, go for a walk. It’s important we do little things we enjoy and are kind to ourselves,” Rihanna said.

The singer has certainly been busy. This year, Rihanna launched her official skincare line, Fenty Skin and dropped Savage X Fenty Vol. 2 on Amazon Prime featuring Normani, Lizzo and more.

She, like many this year, is looking to the holiday season as a time to enjoy a break with loved ones and indulge in good food. She explained, “On a day-to-day basis I will eat well – but, at the same time, I won’t deprive myself. If I want a cheeseburger, then I am going to have one. I will exercise three or four times a week as well – feeling healthy is important to me.”

The mogul also told Closer she hoped to spend Christmas home in Barbados and called it “the most beautiful place, with incredible beaches, food and people.”
