Motherhood for Rihanna 'could be a year from now'

She makes hit records and is about to star in her first feature film, "Battleship," but Rihanna's open to taking on another project: motherhood.

"It could be a year from now. It could be 10 years from now. Whenever is right," Rihanna, who is dating L.A. Dodgers star Matt Kemp, tells the December issue of Interview. "I mean, I have a lot of other stuff to accomplish before I get to kids. Whenever the time is right, I'll just know."

Though the 22-year-old singer doesn't have a time frame set just yet, she definitely has ideas about what motherhood will be like. For starters, she thinks having a boy would be easier.

"If I had a girl, she'd probably be really rebellious. She would be like a bundle of karma," says Rihanna, adding that she would love to raise her children in her native Barbados but realizes that her career would make that nearly impossible.

"I can't live that far away from everything now, without kids," she explains. "So I certainly couldn't raise kids and [have a career] with the demanding schedule that I have."

    I think it is very sweet for her to be thinking about it and i think if she has a child the media will be all over her so for me it is a 50 / 50 chance, so please don't get angry with me ppl.

    She never said she's going to have kids next year, she basically just said it'll happen when it happens. It's funny how gossip spreads. She's young, and she'll be a good mom when the time comes, but it doesnt seem like she's in a rush

    She is so young.. She has time, she should enjoy her time so when she is ready for children, she will focus on them instead of focusing staying in the lime light
