The star always tries to eat well and exercises regularly, but she will still indulge in calorific treats when cravings strike.

"On a day-to-day basis I will eat well – but, at the same time, I won’t deprive myself," she tells Closer magazine. 

She adds, "If I want a cheeseburger, then I am going to have one. I will exercise three or four times a week as well – feeling healthy is important to me."

The ‘Diamonds’ hitmaker won praise for the inclusivity and diversity of her Savage X Fenty catwalk show last month and she insisted they [women] are always subjects to be celebrated.

She says, "Diversity is about so much more than colour. As women, we are different shapes, we are different sizes, and inclusivity is so important, we don’t want anybody feeling left out.

"Diversity is something that should be celebrated and I hope that is what we are doing."

Rihanna also urges people to embrace their flaws.
