While he was presenting at 80Th annual Golden Globes, Niecy Nash took a moment to let Rihanna know that she was her muse during the spooky season. And it just happened to be the exact moment she had every eye and ear in the room laser-focused on her.

Presenting the award for actress in a TV series – musical or comedy, Nash waited until all the nominees – which included Selena Gomez for her lead role in Only murder in the building — was noted for cracking a joke and keeping the nominees on edge as she basked in the glow of Bad Gal RiRi.

“Rihanna, I love you and I dressed up as you for Halloween. I just had to say it,” Nash said before revealing that Quinta Brunson was the winner of Abbott Elementary. “Had to take my moment.”

After a commercial break, Carmichael took Nash’s lead and didn’t let his chance for a moment with Rihanna go to waste while the superstar was around. “Just because I see Rihanna is here, I’m going to say something very controversial that I’m actually going to get in trouble for,” the Globes host stated. “Rihanna – you take all the time you want on that album, girl. Don’t let these fools on the internet pressure you into nothing.”

As fans of the nine-time Grammy winner relentlessly joke online, Rihanna hasn’t released a studio set since the Billboard 200 top ANTI in January 2016. However, she recently released the single “Lift Me Up” as part of her commitment to the soundtrack to 2022’s Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. “Lift Me Up” was nominated for Best Original Song, Motion Picture, but lost to “Naatu Naatu” from Action movie RRR.

Rihanna laughed good-naturedly at the jokes from Nash and Carmichael.

And she has hardly been free. Rihanna will headline the Super Bowl halftime show in February. 12, less than a year after giving birth to her first child with A$AP Rocky in May 2022.
