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.
