Rihanna release part two of her “Talk That Talk” documentary series.
The documentary takes us behind the scenes of the making of Rihanna’s sixth studio album, where she gave us a sneak peek of how stressful life can be during all the promotions, concerts, photo shoots and studio sessions.
“This is the craziest schedule I’ve ever been on in my entire life,” Rihanna revealed.
“One morning I woke up and started crying so hard,” Rihanna remembers. “I finally just got to my bed from the IV [drip] and I was just like, ‘Good I can actually get to sleep tonight’, because we stayed up [all night’ and I finished [the album] at 5pm the day before. So now, I’m like, ‘One good night of rest.’ I get in bed, and it must have been two hours in before my phone started going off.”
“I was so frustrated I kept ignoring the phone,” RiRi continues.
“I started crying,” she added. “I cried for 10 minutes really, really hard in my pillow. It was aggressive. I don’t cry loads. If I cry it’s because I’m very angry and I can’t do anything about it, because I’ve run into a dead end. That’s when the tears would come down. But this time I needed to hear it, I almost wanted to punch somebody.”
In the end all the hard work and stress was worth the effort according to the “Where Have You Been” singer.
”When I got the copies in my hand, it was so worth it. I would never take it back. At times I wished things could have been different and easier, but then I didn’t really care when I got the album. The fact it was so difficult, the album feels so much better.”
Talk That Talk would go on to certified platinum after selling more than a million copies in the United States alone.
