Rihanna Pranks Jimmy Kimmel On April Fool’s Day: Watch
Rihanna is the ultimate Bad Gal, but many fans know that she is also a jokester! The singer showed off her #Unapologetic ways yesterday (April 1) on Jimmy Kimmel Live, when she pulled an hilarious prank on the talk show host — who is famous for his annual hijinks.
It begins with Rihanna and her entourage (which includes two backup dancers, a guy wearing strobe lights and another with huge speakers), as Kimmel’s wife lets them into her home at 1 o’clock in the morning. The singer then bursts into their bedroom while blasting her new single, “Bitch Better Have My Money,” as Kimmel’s chamber turns into a club filled with dollar bills and confetti!
In the accompanying interview, the two do the #TwizzlerChallenge for Autism where Kimmel almost pulls off kissing the pop starlet! When asked about her forthcoming eighth album, she replied that there’s no release date yet but said, “I want it to be out now.”
Rihanna’s appearance on the show (she has not talked on late night in a long time) was refreshing to see and also very hilarious.
