Travi$ Scott covers the latest issue of Complex, in which he talks about a range of topics, including his affiliation with Rihanna and more. Rumours of the rapper’s romantic affairs with Rihanna started a few months back after the two were spotted together. The label-less relationship has added much hype to Rihanna’s new Puma Creepers sneaker campaign, which also features La Flame. In the interview with Complex for their December/January cover story, the writer details several moments of Scott’s affinity with the pop icon.
“And Rihanna. Travis avoids directly putting a label on his budding relationship, laughing and imploring me to not “do [me] like that, man” when I ask about it as delicately as possible. I am, however, able to get him to describe her in three words: “creative,” “inspiring,” and, after a long pause (and some assistance from Corey), “muse.”…as Travis peruses the #travisscott hashtag on Instagram on his MacBook Air, he comes across a version of the ad with him cropped out and zoomed in on Rihanna. He’s not bothered by this, and in fact, he finds it funny. It’s then that he has arguably his most unguarded moment during the time we spend together, kissing his right index and middle finger and then touching the low-res image of Rihanna’s face, caressing the screen, and glowing with pride. It’s honest and touching and fucking adorable.”
Fans can only speculate about the relationship between the two artists. Are they dating? Are they friends? I guess only time will tell.
Of course, there’s a lot more to know about “rap’s new god” and you can read the full feature here.
