Rihanna shared that before she got so involved in her other business endeavors, she would spend so much more time on her music, but now she is divided on what she does each day.

“I used to be in the studio, only the studio, for three months straight, and an album would come out. Now, it’s like a carousel. I do fashion one day, lingerie the next, beauty the next, then music the next. It’s like having a bunch of kids and you need to take care of them all.”

'Mental Health Depends On It'

“It’s only the last couple years that I started to realize that you need to make time for yourself because your mental health depends on it."
