Love on the Brain: Rihanna Continues World Domination by Moving Valentine's Day to January

In case you hadn’t noticed, Rihanna wants our bodies.

Actually, she wants our bodies, our faces, our feet, our ears (in 2019, she promises), and clearly, our wallets. We’re just waiting for her to slap her name and visage on a haircare collection, some wine labels (Bad Gal Wines, anyone?), and a line of healthy but scrumptious munchies simply called “Snacks” and she’ll pretty much sponsor our entire lives.


Oh, wait. We’re sponsoring hers. Because bitch better have my money, apparently. But Rih makes it feel so worthwhile, especially when she drops titillating little gems like this on social media.

No it’s not burlesque, though judging by her chameleon-like performance in Valerian, she’s great at that, too. It’s Rih’s version of an early Valentine. It’s only the first full week of January, but the lingerie mogul is dropping sexy new Savage x Fenty goodies on Wednesday. That’s right: She’s dropping panties just two days shy of the release of Fenty Beauty’s new foundation shades, setting powders, and 50 shades of concealer—so budget wisely.

That said, her latest round of sweet little nothings have a decidedly seasonal theme, and love may not let us wait.

We’re already smitten with the peekaboo and pastie-inspired set Rih is so graciously modeling for us, but Savage’s social promises to have many more offerings in store for Rih’s size-inclusive V-Day collection. Think sheer, spaghetti-strapped bodysuits, kiss-covered, curve-conscious bralettes and more. (And yes, those are hot pink, heart-shaped pasties.)


And if you’re sans Valentine this year *raises hand*, never fear. Rihanna, patron saint of self-love, encourages you to love your own damned self this Valentine’s Day. In other words, treat yo’ self like you deserve, because that’s what a Savage girl does.


Besides, it’s pretty clear that all Rih wants for Valentine’s Day is our coins.

Gray is not my color

She’s not gonna be happy until we’re all broke and beautiful *lol*
