Rihanna Talks Rachel Dolezal in ‘Vanity Fair’

Rihanna speaks her mind and lives life on her own terms. Basking effortlessly in beauty and racking up coins with a variety of business ventures outside of music, Ms. Fenty apologizes for nothing.

And you can bet, she won’t be taking anything back as it relates to her comments on the controversial Rachel Dolezal –the fist-pumping White woman who decided to lead a life passing for Black.

As Vanity Fair’s November cover star, Rihanna expressed that she feels Dolezal is a “hero.”

“…she kind of flipped on society a little bit,” she stated in her interview. “Is it such a horrible thing that she pretended to be Black? Black is a great thing, and I think she legit changed people’s perspective a bit and woke people up.”

Twitter struck with meme’s questioning RiRi’s view point:

Though there was some backlash, Rih still seems to have adoration of her “Navy” and fans around the world.
