In all honesty, this bucket challenge has been annoying as #phuck. The amount of money that it’s raised for ALS is incredible but I am over scrolling down every social media outlet just to see more videos of people screaming over some cold water.
However, the saying is true: every cloud has a silver lining. And that silver lining comes in the shape of a certain Bajan island gal, Rihanna.
During the final stop of The Monster Tour in Detroit, our favourite badgal poured ice over Eminem‘s head in hysterics after he was ‘challenged’ by Dr Dre. But she wasn’t laughing so much when the rapper then challenged her to also do it onstage, there and then.
“I’m from the islands! I don’t do this ice shit — this ice shit doesn’t work for me,” the former Queen of Instagram flawlessly said after being chosen. After seeing what her stylist and assistant were carrying the ice in, she screams: “WAIT, that’s a #phucking POT! It’s the ice bucket challenge!”
And just like that, history was made. Ri’s #IceBucketChallenge is more iconic than any performance that will happen at tonight’s VMAs.
