Like most women, Rihanna has curves, stretch marks, and occasionally forgets to shave her legs. And it's her realness about all of it that makes the singer a hero in our eyes.

Her latest candid and completely relatable comments? The British Vogue cover star proudly declares that she's "thicc now," but that she also loves her body at any size.

"I’m about to get back into the gym and stuff, and I hope I don’t lose my butt or my hips or all of my thighs,” she said. "I’ll lose some but not all. And I think of my boobs, like, ‘Imma lose everything, everything goes!'”

She admits that there's a definite trade-off. "But, you know, it comes with a price. You want to have a butt, then you have a gut,” she said.

However, Rihanna is not one to back down against body-shamers. In June, she spoke with the U.S. edition of Vogue about how she deals with online trolls.

"You’ve just got to laugh at yourself, honestly. I mean, I know when I’m having a fat day and when I’ve lost weight. I accept all of the bodies,” she said. "I’m not built like a Victoria’s Secret girl, and I still feel very beautiful and confident in my lingerie."

While many women despise the fact that their bodies can change at the drop of dime, Rihanna sees it as a positive. "I actually have had the pleasure of a fluctuating body type, where one day I can literally fit into something that is bodycon, and then the next day, the next week — I need something oversized; I need a little crop here and a high-waist there to hide that part, you know?” she told The Cut.

She continued: “I really pay attention every day when I go into the closet about what’s working for my body that morning. I feel like that’s how everyone should go after fashion, because it’s an individual thing. And then, if you take it further, it’s like: ‘What week are you having? You having a skinny week? You having a fat week? Are we doing arms this week? We doing legs this week? We doing oversized?’”

Alright, it's official: Rihanna is our generation's body hero. Bravo!
