The moment took place at the singer's First Annual Diamond Ball on Thursday (December 11), and it's just so overwhelming to watch. Look at that ball gown, the dramatic lighting, the skyward flourish at the end -- she's really doubling down on that #NOBASICZONE thing.
The black tie fundraiser for The Clara Lionel Foundation -- an organization named after the 26-year-old singer's grandparents that seeks to "improve the quality of life for communities globally in the areas of health, education, arts, and culture" -- also featured a performance by Big Sean.
Rih and her badgal BFF Melissa Forde sang along in the audience while the rapper performed "I Don't F--k With You" onstage. I would literally pay Rihanna to tell me she doesn't f--k with me, so to have this great honor bestowed upon me free of charge is just great.
In closing: WHERE IS #R8.
