Rihanna is a world-renowned singer, actress, entrepreneur and the richest woman in music. She’s also a bad-ass day drinker. She proved her skills on Thursday night (June 20) when she went cocktail-to-cocktail with Seth Meyers on Late Night, pounding shots, chugging pints and graciously letting her host serve up truly gross sounding concoctions with pun-y titles based on her biggest hits.
First up? An “Under My Rumbrella,” featuring rum, chocolate rum balls, a scoop of rum raisin ice cream and a fist full of umbrellas. She did not like it and was very suspicious of what “rum balls” were all around. Rih-Rih was also confused by “Diamonds in the Rye,” a whiskey and almond milk concoction that caused her to warn Meyers to never say the phrase “nut milk” again. He did a bit better with “We Found Veuve in a Hostess Place,” a mix of champagne and Twinkies. “You really want me to drink this,” she asked incredulously. “What is wrong with you?”
The one that got her, though, was “Bitch Better Have My Bunny,” a giant chocolate Easter bunny packed with tequila that she happily tipped back. There were also, of course, drinking games, including one in which Rih had to guess where she wore certain iconic outfits, or else take a shot, and another in which Meyers played the helpful bartender with answers to all her big life questions.
Turns out Rihanna had crap grades in school and always wanted to be a pilot, and her advice to Meyers about how to “blow” his wife away on a romantic date definitely made him blush. As things got super sloppy, Meyers tried some of his best pick-up lines on the singer and let’s just say “are you the girl from Battleship?” did not work, at all.
There was a Fenty Beauty makeover to give Meyers the perfect “summer eye,” which ended up looking more like a terrible Avatar outtake, and, finally, Meyers’ worst idea of the night: drunkenly singing Rihanna’s songs to her while wearing noise-canceling headphones.
