Rihanna is globally hailed as a Pop royal, but that isn’t stopping her from showing love to the stars on the come-up.
Case in point Normani!
RiRi tapped the ‘Motivation’ singer to star in her hotly anticipated Savage X Fenty fashion show, which taped last night and airs September 20th on Amazon Prime.
Following filming, Mani took to social media to express thanks to Rih:
Ms. Fenty responded in equally endorsing a manner, commenting:
The Bajan belle also gushed about the 23-year old in an interview with ELLE. Check out an excerpt:
How does that extend to what kind of artists you make space for on your stage? Why did you choose Halsey or Normani, for example, to perform in your show?
I wanted to highlight women who are powerful. To me, power in whatever way you master it is very sexy. And with someone like Normani, you know, she’s an incredible dancer, and dance is athleticism. Dance is powerful. It would be a shame to miss out on the opportunity to have that kind of beauty and power in the show.
How do you test out your Savage x Fenty pieces for approval? Do you just see how they look, or do you move around in them and dance in them, too?
I do what I can! Look, I’m not nearly as good a dancer as Normani, but I will try. I will dance in these pieces in my kitchen until we get it right! Which is what I did, believe it or not. I only had two-and-a-half hours of rehearsal so I had to, like, get it where I could fit it in. Usually it was while I was doing other approvals. People are like, “Hey, pick this model! Pick this look!” And I’m like this—[She starts doing the opening moves from her dance number.] No, listen, it happens! I’ll rehearse anywhere because I want it to be perfect. If you’re passionate enough about something, you’ll get it done.
We’re loving the love! Can’t wait to see the show!
