Bridesmaid Rihanna hilariously dodges wedding bouquet like her life depends on it
The MTV VMAs were on last night, but even though Rihanna was nominated for two awards (one of which she won), she was noticeably absent. The Lemon singer became a victim of a new meme that made the rounds at the event, seen here:
But it seems she had a good reason not to have attended the event: the singer and businesswoman was back in her home country of Barbados for a friend's wedding. Rihanna was one of the bridesmaids for her friend, Sonita Alexander, and in true Rihanna fashion, she managed to make everyone laugh due to her aversion to the bouquet at the reception.
Wearing a sleek navy blue gown designed for all the bridesmaids, Rihanna kept it lowkey when it came to her hair and makeup but still looked as glam as ever. The ceremony looked equally gorgeous, taking place in the lush outdoors of the Caribbean island. Things moved inside for the reception, but when it came for the wedding bouquet toss, Rihanna was sure to dodge it as much as she could.
Luckily, the hilarious moment was captured on camera, and a video shows the 30-year-old expertly ducking from the flight path of the airborne flowers to ensure they didn't land in her vicinity. You can watch her here, noting how she swerves right after the bouquet is thrown as she B-lines for the other direction:
Rihanna is rumoured to have split with her billionaire boyfriend last month, though their relationship status was never officially confirmed. She'd been seen hanging out in very suspiciously date-like situations with Saudi businessman, Hassan Jameel.
MediaTakeOut News reported that Rihanna broke the relationship off because she "gets tired of men sometimes." Who knows if it's really true but same, Rihanna, same. The site's "source" claimed that "Rihanna and him were together for a while."
"It was a good relationship, but now it's over," they reported. "Of course Rihanna broke his heart. That's what she does: break[s] men's hearts. Rihanna just got tired of him. She gets tired of men sometimes."
Well, judging by her determination not to catch the bouquet, it seems like she's really not putting her love-life as a priority right now. And if you need any more convincing, let's revisit this classic interview where she tells a nosy interviewer she's "not looking for a man, let's start there".
Rihanna clearly isn't of the persuasion that having a man in her life will make her feel "complete", and why should it? She's still releasing bangers that always shoot to the top of the charts, and her latest business ventures with Fenty makeup and her lingerie line Savage are doing stupidly well. Rihanna's certainly doing something right, and it's obviously not because she's been chasing bouquets.
The Ocean's Eight star recently uploaded a video showing her walking around a square in Cuba's capital of Havana in a flowy dress and a straw hat.
It really seems she's living her best life, right?
