Have you noticed that Rihanna (who turns 30 today!) tends to look really, really amazing, no matter what she’s doing? Of course you have.
Here’s a close examination of the many times she’s managed to look like a goddess while tending to everyday matters, along with hypotheses as to how we would look in the exact same situation. You know, for science.
1. Rihanna chilling outside in a bathrobe:
How we would look: like a marshmallow past its expiration date.
2. Rihanna sipping on a drink in a bodega:
How we would look: like someone who is about to be yelled at by a bodega owner.
3. Rihanna kissing a fish:
How we would look: like we’ve predictably given up on finding a human partner.
4. Rihanna helping out in the kitchen:
How we would look: violently hungry.
5. Rihanna picking up some treats at the record store:
How we would look: like we were carefully avoiding being seen by anyone we know.
6. Rihanna trolling her mom:
How we would look: like we went HAM with Facetune (because we would have).
7. Rihanna wearing her biggest sweatshirt:
How we would look: similar to a hamper of dirty clothes.

How we would look: like the most annoying tourist you’ve seen all day.
15. Rihanna drinking a soda:
How we would look: like we were trying to hold down a burp.
16. Rihanna straightening her hair:
How we would look: very anxious because we know we’d find a way to screw it up, probably resulting in burns.

How we would look: like a hippo who hasn’t learned how to walk yet.
18. Rihanna eating dinner:
How we would look: unabashedly covered in grease and crumbs.
