watch rihanna's explosive performance of her new single
at the iheartradio awards
At the iHeartRadio Awards, Rihanna’s first live performance of her gangster shakedown anthem “Bitch Better Have My Money” channeled the kitschy opulence of the Jiggy Era.
Arriving onstage in a helicopter, Rihanna took her fashion took inspiration from the monochromatic getups in Lil' Kim’s video for “Crush on You": She wore a green fur coat, green thigh-highs, green shades, and a green Versace choker. Riri hinted at the wardrobe reference when she posted a throwback photo of Lil' Kim on Instagram last week, complete with the caption #BBHMM.
Over-the-top decadence was truly the cornerstone of hip-hop’s bygone golden era, and we can’t think of anyone better than Rihanna to bring it back. Now all we can do is sit back and pray for a Lil' Kim and Rihanna collaboration.
