Why This Photo Of Rihanna And Lupita Nyong’o Just Went Viral
So by now, you’ve probably noticed a random photo of Rihanna and Lupita Nyong’o making its way around social media.
The photo surfaced on Twitter on Friday morning and the Internet took complete reign and started creating fake stories behind it. And we are loving every bit of it. But first, here’s the real story.
The photo, meant to be a Flashback Friday gem, shows the two during the 2014 Miu Miu show at Paris Fashion Week. At the time, the pair even took a selfie together, but for some reason, a paparazzi photo of the fashionistas enjoying the show side by side has launched into a full movie plot.
According to folks on the Internet, Rihanna’s flashy swag paired with Lupita’s sophisticated style is the perfect recipe for a rom-com. Per one meme floating around, the movie should be about RiRi who “scams rich white men and Lupita is the computer smart best friend that helps plan the scans.”
We agree! And so does Lupita. After the photo went viral, Nyong’o tweeted: “I’m down if you are.”
RiRi has yet to comment, but our guess is in less than two weeks, there will be some production announcing that a future project with these two is in the works.
