Rihanna Has a Legitimate Reason for Not Attending the Royal Wedding
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are tying the knot in less than a week (!), and while it seems the entire world is caught up in royal wedding madness, we found one notable exception: Rihanna.
During a recent red carpet interview, a reporter broached the topic of the fast-approaching royal wedding.
The singer gave a Mariah Carey-esque response, asking said reporter, "So is it really coming up? Like, soon or something?"
After confirming the date and establishing that Rihanna needs to “stay on the internet more,” the reporter followed up, asking, “So you weren’t invited?”
“Why would you even think I’m invited?” she asked. “I don’t know,” the reporter countered, “you met him!”
In case you were also wondering, here’s some background: Rihanna and Prince Harry shared an incredible photo-op in 2016 when Harry traveled to Barbados during his Caribbean tour. They laughed; they hugged—but apparently a pact to invite each other to their future nuptials was not made.
Rihanna’s response was, to be honest, pretty logical: "OK, you met me," she told the reporter. "You think you're coming to my wedding? Am I coming to yours?”
Our papal queen, Rihanna.
Honestly, though, omitting RiRi from the guest list of this (or any) wedding is a big mistake. You know she’d bring her fashion A-game, plus, a sampling from her new Savage x Fenty lingerie line is the ultimate gift. Missed opportunity, if you ask us.
