All day long, we’ve been walking on eggshells trying not to fall victim to merciless April Fools jokes circulating on the internet.
But then a collection of pictures started making the rounds on Twitter that lifted our hopes into the heavens and practically begged for validation. Could it be that our wildest dreams have been realized in the form of this stunning supergroup?
THOSE FLAWLESSLY FIERCE EXPRESSIONS. THOSE MATCHING LACE BODYSUITS. THOSE POWER-DEMANDING POSES. The accurately-nicknamed “Holy Trinity” — comprised of Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, and Beyonce — is something that clearly NEEDS to be real. Just feast your eyes on these similarly jaw-dropping pics:
Yes, all of these tweets are photoshopped. And yes, it’s borderline torturous to tease us with this kind of dream scenario (can you imagine the sublime eargasms this trio would whip up for us?!). But maybe — just maybe! — this cruel April Fools joke can be used to make the change we wish to see in the world.
We know that Bey, Rih, and Nicki all attended the star-studded press conference for Tidal earlier this week. Could it be that they started scheming their holy union then? It’d be awesome to consider, especially considering how perfect we now know the three of them look as Destiny’s Child 2.0 (thanks, expert photoshoppers).
Unfortunately, Nicki’s already addressed the collaboration rumors by laughing it off as “cute” fan fiction. In an interview with Hot 97 in December, she said, “I’ve been seeing the holy trinity —Beyonce, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj — thing on Twitter, and it cracks me up. They always get pictures of us in the same color and they’ll put it together and tweet it to me. It’s so cute. I love both of those girls very, very much. And that would be dope.”
UM, YES, NICKI. IT WOULD BE DOPE. Please don’t tease us with this April foolery. We need this. Sincerely, The Entire Human Population.
