REVEALED: RIHANNA IS SHY RONNIE!

Have you ever wondered who Shy Ronnie from the famous video with bad girl Riri is? Worry no more, cos we have the answer here.

Rihanna, as it turns out, does not need an introduction. These are the bits we know: The 31-year-old Barbadian entertainer and mogul have 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.” She has just recently been named by Forbes as the richest female entertainer in the world.

And yet, there’s another side to the blunt-smoking purveyor of genre-shattering pop songs and culture 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.

Attached is an excerpt from the transcript if her interview.

PAULSON: What’s the biggest misconception about you?

RIHANNA: People don’t know that I’m shy.

PAULSON: I know that because when I first met you, you were shy.

RIHANNA: And you are good at reading someone’s character because that’s what you do for a living. Your gift is that you would know the exhibited behavior of a shy person. Because I kind of pretend it’s not happening, people read me as being confident. But I’m so shy I don’t even want you to know I’m shy.

There you have it. Rihanna is Shy Ronnie. I guess we can now add another moniker to her long list of AKA’s. You never really get to know everything about anybody, even with all that one knows.

They also spoke about her childhood, growing up, making music and religious beliefs.
