Pregnant Rihanna honored with a statue at Met Gala 2022
The Metropolitan Museum of Art paid a special tribute to Barbadian singer and soon-to-be mom, Rihanna at the Met Gala 2022.
The singer, who is currently heavily pregnant and expecting her first child with her boyfriend, A$AP Rocky, could not attend the Met Gala this year.
However, she was there at the fashion extravaganza in spirit and in marble, as the Metropolitan Museum of Art got a marble statue made in her honour.
Taking to her Instagram page, she shared a video of the statue and thanked the museum for the tribute.
“shut down the met in marble! what’s more gilded than that? Lol! Thank you @metmuseum and @voguemagazine for this historic tribute! y’all bad for this one”. She captioned the video.
In other news, Nigerian Media personality, Toke Makinwa has opined that the comments Rihanna would have received from Nigerian if she were Nigerian would have been totally different from the praises she is currently enjoying for showing off her baby-bump.
Rihanna has proudly flaunted her baby-bump since the day she announced that she was pregnant and her fans have literally worshipped every photo of her ‘pregnant look’ that hit the internet.
Toke Makinwa reacted to this and said that Nigerians would have said “witches will attack the unborn child” if Rihanna were a Nigerian.
