Rihanna got the surprise of a lifetime at the 2019 Fashion Awards.
Rihanna reunited with Janet Jackson on Monday at Royal Albert Hall in London, England. Rihanna and her fashion brand Fenty were to be presented with the Urban Luxe Award. That is when Jackson appeared to present Rihanna with the honour.
What makes the moment touching is how Jackson was one of Rihanna’s early musical inspirations.
“Janet Jackson, Destiny’s Child, Whitney Houston — they were the people who motivated me to do this, who I idolized and looked up to, and said I want to be like them,” she told MTV almost 10-years-ago. “That started the dream, and it just went from there, and became a reality.”
Rihanna, who was obviously wearing Fenty, later took a photo with Jackson backstage.
