Just call her the queen of pranks. We all know Rihanna loves a bit of mischief and this week, the singer had her eyes set on pulling one over on Jimmy Kimmel. The Bajan songstress admitted she loves seeing Kimmel’s April Fools’ Day pranks every year, so in honor of her appearance on the show, she thought she would give the late night host a taste of his own medicine.
Cameras followed Riri as she showed up at Kimmel’s house around 1 a.m. to give him the most epic wake-up call ever. With the help of Kimmel’s wife Molly McNearney, Riri went into Kimmel’s bedroom and woke him up with flashing lights, confetti and a troupe of backup dancers as they blasted her new single “Bitch Better Have My Money.” Rihanna jumped on his bed (in her shoes!) and tossed dollars on the groggy Kimmel.
Kimmel was clearly caught off guard so it’s safe to say that Rihanna pulled off one of the best celebrity pranks we’ve seen since Ashton Kutcher convinced Justin Timberlake his house was being repossessed.
Well played Riri, well played.
