Never get high on your own supply, but maybe skip the glitziest fashion event of the year to tend to it. Instead of attending this year’s Met Gala — an annual event that Rihanna has reigned over for years — Rih stayed home to do whatever the hell she wanted. “Rihanna at home playing with that fuckin makeup,” someone (@idkmackk) suggested on Twitter. Rihanna saw the tweet and posted it to her Instagram Story, side by side with a photo of — you guessed it — that fuckin’ makeup. “[M]et ball 2019 😩🤷,” she captioned, winning the night without even stepping foot on the Fifth Avenue pink carpet.

Rihanna did break her silence on who deserved the title of best dressed: Vogue EIC Anna Wintour.

Maybe we’ll see Rihanna next year, Fenty face and all.
