fenty fail

This cringy clip of Rihanna trying (and failing) to talk about nonbinary people has folks cackling

Rihanna looking over her shoulder.

Rihanna has had a divisive few weeks of PR, to say the least.

In early November, she announced that wildly hot-button actor Johnny Depp would be the first man to get his own segment in her fourth annual Savage x Fenty show, which garnered immediate backlash.

A few days later, she finally made her long-awaited musical comeback with two songs for the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever soundtrack–both of which ended up being slow ballads that were a little “go girl, give us nothing”.

However, a resurfaced clip of the hit-maker attempting to address her nonbinary audience has ex-fans and the Rihanna Navy™ coming together for a good laugh.

As OP says, “she was just saying sh*t”:

“I designed some boxer briefs that both men and women, and nonbinary people of all, um… gender… appropriations… and the pronouns… everyone is included,” she kind of explains. It’s the hair flip and stuttering on “the pronouns” part that really makes this a ten out of ten.

Shouting out “people of gender appropriations” could honestly be offensive if it seemed like she had any idea what was going on, but alas.

Instead, we now have a sound bite for the community to laugh with (and a little at):

Our personal fave is folks comparing it to the time she put on an acting clinic to convince a fan she remembered her “from Monaco”:

She was in her Meg StalterHi, gay!” bag with this one.
