Paging Lil Kim…
Rihanna arrived for Independence Day celebrations over the weekend flashing daring silver sequined nipple petals from beneath her plunging tuxedo jacket. The stars were out, and Rihanna was wearing them with her sequin pasties in the shape of stars. Perhaps in honor of the holiday?
Far from being an embarrassing moment of overexposure, it was a very deliberate move by the bold Umbrella singer who seemed completely at ease in her most provocative outfit yet.
While such a look was once considered scandalous – Janet Jackson’s Super Bowl moment caused a huge furor in 2004 – Rihanna is just the latest in a list of stars who have embraced the trend. Eccentric star Lady GaGa, burlesque dancer Dita Von Teese, model Daisy Lowe and singer Britney Spears have all publicly paraded nipple covers in recent times.
Rihanna was in Las Vegas to mark July 4 along with her mentor Jay-Z, who attended the party at Tao nightclub without his wife Beyonce. The rapper is credited with giving the singer her big break by signing her to record label Def Jam and the pair are rumored to be working on new material for her next album. JAMIE FOXX also attended the bash and thrilled fans by performing a MICHAEL JACKSON tribute on stage.
