Well, it's 2015 and we are STILL waiting on new music from Rihanna. I'm starting to think she doesn't care about me anymore?? But then, she'll bestow upon us loyal NAVY officers a tiny bit of heaven and my faith is like, 100% renewed.
Like when she casually decided to go watch The Lakers face off against the Cavs on Thursday night. Since she's Rihanna, she was given the customary courtside celeb seat that we've grown resigned to seeing Taylor Swift occupy at Knicks games.
But Rihanna's reactions and general, perfect presence transformed the fairly mundane occurrence of a basketball game into a wonderful one-woman play. Just take a look at her gloriously taking in the game—and apologies to LeBron and Kobe but Rihanna watching you play is better than the sport itself. Behold:
This was probably when the refs made a bad call against the Lakers...
Can you imagine facing down that gaze?? If I was a ref I would reverse my decision then and there to please Rih Rih. Can't be too careful, y'know?
Do you think Kyrie Irving is trying to get Rihanna's attention here?
And she's laughing at the mere mortal and his attempts to commune with her? C'mon Irving, stay focused on the game okay?
The BFF vibes Rih and Melissa Forde are emitting here are at "Broad City" levels.
I mean, Abbi and Ilana already think Rihanna is dripping perfection, so the connection feels cosmic.
Like, there's no fakeness here. These two are in it for real.
TFW you're simultaneously the cutest and most elegant human being who has ever eaten popcorn:
JUST STOP YOU ANGEL.
And proof that she actually did eat that buttery, delicious snack? Right here:
A popstar that eats popcorn. Bless her.
Even pop stars need to stretch their legs sometimes after sitting in those folding chairs!
Considering she's Puma's new creative director, it stands to reason that Rih would rock the brand for a high-profile appearance. The coat is an unreleased piece called the Coach Jacket and was designed by Vashtie.
She indulges the photographers by letting them zoom in for a close up...
By the way, your lipstick game is on lock, Rih.
And she makes time for selfies with fans.
Even though they're Heat fans! She is truly a benevolent being.
But don't let any of this fool you, she's still fierce as they come.
So who won the game you ask? Rihanna. It was a shut out. Better luck next time, sports teams!
