Is Rihanna Taking A Year Off From The Spotlight?

A recent rumor suggests that immediately after her Diamonds tour, Rihanna will take a year off away from the spotlight. “She’ll still be writing and recording, but she’s got to stay in one place and really recharge her batteries,” a source said to The Daily Star, according to EntertainmentWise.

The rumor surfaced after the Unapologetic singer arrived an hour late to the launch of her River Island collection, then hours late to her own after-parties. She had also said that she hoped to take a month off, now that she and Chris Brown are dating again.

“I will probably have a kid. And I’m praying I can go on vacation for a good month. And I’ll have set some things up so I don’t have to tour for the rest of my life, even though I love touring. I want health and happiness in five years. I want to be healthy and happy,” she said to Elle UK.

So while The Daily Star has yet to write a story about its own scoop, the rumor does not seem to be that far-fetched. After all, her 777 tour (“It was like fun torture,” one passenger said) was named after a tremendous feat, for any given pop star — releasing seven studio albums in just seven years.
