Rihanna’s carnival costume is the best thing that happened to the internet in a while

Even her ex, Chris Brown could not resist! He shamelessly dropped a two-eye emoji in her comments.

*just know that someone at the TV station thought to cue in Wild Thoughts exactly at this point! How the universe works…

We’re not sure if anyone in these parts was looking forward to the annual Crop Over Festival in Barbados but we trusted Rihanna to steal the show like she’s done in the last four years.

See proof:

Notice the progression? How each new year surpassed the previous?

Rihanna picked an aqua blue weave with bejeweled bikini and feathers that are sure to leave birds green with envy.

WOW! We wonder what we did in this life to deserve the blessing of Rihanna.

Anyway, what’s also important is the timing of this carnival. Only few weeks ago, body shamers took to social media to call her “too fat” after she shared photos of her red carpet appearances from the Paris and London premieres of Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. There was even an article on a US website that alluded to Rihanna promoting the new trend of being fat.

At the time, she gave subtle laughing emoji response but who knew she had this epic, unforgettable clapback coming?

We wonder how those who called her “too fat” fared through last night after seeing these photos.

Go Riri!
