Rihanna wants everyone to buy their Fenty Beauty in peace.
Over the weekend (May 25), SZA received a Fenty gift card from the self-proclaimed “bad gal” after she claimed she was racially profiled at a Sephora in California. “Lmao Sandy Sephora location 614 Calabasas called security to make sure I wasn’t stealing,” the Ctrl singer tweeted to her 2.7 million followers back in April.
“We had a long talk. U have a blessed day Sandy,” SZA added, giving the presumed sales associate a new moniker similar to the recent nicknames given to non-POC who have called the police on black people unnecessarily.
In a separate tweet, the 28-year-old wrote, “Can a b—h cop her fenty in peace er whut.” Well, it looks like RiRi got wind of her tweets and wanted to turn her negative experience into a positive one. SZA shared of a photo of the Fenty gift card, as seen below, along with the handwritten note Rihanna sent which read: “Go buy yo [sic] Fenty Beauty in peace sis! One Love – Rihanna.”
“Tanks queen,” SZA replied with a pink heart emoji. Rihanna’s generous act was applauded by her fans. “This is the black women goals I be talking about,” one user wrote. “That’s so sweet! Rihanna will forever have my support,” another person replied.
The heartwarming moment comes just weeks after “Work” singer launched her very own luxury fashion house, Fenty, with LVMH (Moët Hennessy – Louis Vuitton). She made history becoming the first woman to create an original brand under the LVMH umbrella and the first woman of color spearheading an LVMH maison.
While Rih has remained busy expanding her business empire, the 31-year-old has remained mum about the release of her ninth studio LP. She previously worked with SZA on “Consideration,” a song from her critically acclaimed album ANTi. Fingers crossed for another collaboration between the two on her upcoming project.
