Rihanna Spoke to David Copperfield About Losing Her Virginity

The whole thing is weirdly magical.

Today might as well be Rihanna day. The global superstar, humanitarian, and creative director of Puma launched Fenty Beauty last night at midnight PST. (Which, btw, from those of us on the East Coast: rude.) The Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter in “Trophy Wife” has already been IDed as the line’s standout item (and for a semi-affordable $34, no less). To celebrate her new line and her sixth Elle cover, the magazine gathered some of her celebrity friends together in order "to share the questions they were dying to ask” her.

There were a couple of curveballs, like this from magician David Copperfield:

David: I’m not kidding, this is a real offer: I can make you disappear and reappear anywhere in the world. Where do you want to go, and why?
Rihanna: Ten minutes before I lost my virginity…and I'm holding you to that offer. LOL.

And this, from someone you could actually imagine RiRi hanging out with, like actress Laverne Cox:

Laverne: You’ve had so many iconic fashion moments and take so many risks. The iconic CFDA Awards Adam Selman dress in 2014—what gave you the courage to take that risk that was so perfect and elegant yet daring?
Rihanna: Dear Laverne, I took advantage of my titties before they go south. I saw my window, and I took it.

Some of her other celebrity friends who participated include Tyra Banks, Eminem, Pharrell, designer Zac Posen, and restaurateur April Bloomfield (of The Spotted Pig and Iron Chef America fame) among others. For the full interview, you’ll have to pick up a hard copy of October’s issue of Elle magazine.
