Rihanna Reveals The Career She Would Have Pursued If She Wasn’t A Singer

Plus, RiRi's steamy advice for the perfect date night.

While Rihanna is fiercely staying mum on when fans can expect her ninth album drop, she has been busy keeping her fans well-fed with other content in the meantime. She recently met up with Seth Meyers, a noted superfan himself, for a segment on his late night show this Thursday (June 20). And no, it was not to discuss anything music related at all. But as with all things RiRi, her appearance on the show did not disappoint!

  • The show kicked off with a drinking game where Seth got to show off his mixology skills. The late night television host whipped up a handful of drinks based on RiRi’s greatest hits. One involved a Twinkie in a glass of champagne. It’s as gross as it sounds.

    While Rihanna didn’t get drunk enough to accidentally spill any deets about her music, the Barbadian songstress did have a little fun sharing some never-before-heard details about herself.


  • she almost pursued another career that had nothing to do with music.

    While playing a guessing game, Seth asked Rihanna, with all her globe-trotting experience, if she had ever considered being a pilot.

    “I actually wanted to be a pilot,” RiRi said when Seth suggested it as another possible business venture for the music-fashion-beauty hyphenate to consider tacking on to her lengthy resume. 

  • She has bomb advice for a romantic date night.

    Turning the drinking game to her advantage, Rihanna swapped spots with the late night host to drop some gems of wisdom. Her first piece of advice? Know how to please a woman. 

    "I want to like, blow my wife away with a romantic night out," Seth explained. "What do I do?"

    While we won't repeat word-for-word what the Anti singer had to say, it was enough to shake Seth, a 45-year-old man, to his core and prompt him to have to remind the 31-year-old they were on network television.
    Rihanna recently confessed to being head over heels in love with her rumored boyfriend of two years, billionaire Hassan Jameel, so it might be worth it to take some notes.

  • Rihanna has never watched 'Game of Thrones'

    What would you do if you were confronted with the chance to ask your fave anything? For Seth, it was a chance to try his hand at courting Rihanna — with the approval of his wife. The self-confessed superfan once told Jimmy Fallon that he and his wife were "fully in love" with Rihanna.

    Unfortunately, his shots were complete misses. The 45-year-old tried to use a pick-up line based on Game of Thrones — only to find out that Rihanna didn’t even watch the mythical series! She was epically underwhelmed by Seth's attempts to prove he got game.

    Hey, you only miss the shots you never take!

  • The segment ended with Rihanna giving Seth a Fenty makeover before the two segued into a round of karaoke while totally hammered. 

  • Watch the hilarious, 12-minute segment below to see what shenanigans Rihanna and Seth got up to below. You won't regret it.
