Rihanna: Why is the announcement of her pregnancy a stroke of media genius?

This is probably one of the most talked about pregnancy announcements! At 33, Rihanna, famous singer, actress, stylist and Barbadian businesswoman has just made her pregnancy official. For the occasion, it was alongside her rapper boyfriend Asap Rocky that she displayed herself during a New York walk. Dressed in a long fuchsia pink puffer jacket revealing her rounded belly, loose jeans and fancy necklaces signed Chanel, the interpreter of Don’t Stop The Music was absolutely resplendent despite the cold of the big apple. Remained until now quite discreet about their romance, Rihanna and Asap Rocky would be officially together since 2020. It was in any case at this time that the New York Post had revealed the beginning of a relationship between the two artists. Interviewed a few months later by GQ magazine, Asap Rocky had assured that he considers the young woman as “the love of his life” and that she inspired him a lot for his next album. A complicity that was no doubt on the many shots of the couple unveiled on social networks.

Posted on Instagram and in the media around the world, the photos of the famous couple went around the world in just a few minutes. Spontaneous expression of their happiness or a real stroke of media genius? We wondered about the chronology of the announcement of this pregnancy. And the least we can say is that everything seems to have worked like clockwork. First striking detail, it was not Rihanna or Asap Rocky who announced the news on social networks. For this, the two stars have appealed to Diggzy, the paparazzi that the world of fashion tears. Having become in a few years the favorite photographer of celebrities such as Hailey Bieber or Ariana Grande, this time he achieved an unprecedented coup by capturing the pregnant singer on the arm of her boyfriend. It is therefore from him that the news of this announcement comes before being taken up everywhere.

If Rihanna remained silent on this announcement for several days following the release of photos showing her rounded belly in the streets of New York, this did not prevent her from revealing two publications for her Fenty Beauty brand on social networks. Indeed, while the whole world was hoping for a sign from her on the ad that had literally set the web on fire, the young woman preferred to promote the make-up brand that made her rich by revealing a snapshot and a video announcing the release of a new line of lipsticks. Surprised by these posts, Internet users were still very numerous to like and comment. A nice publicity stunt for the businesswoman!

Finally, it was not until two days later, while the whole world was still in shock, that Rihanna published a snapshot of herself in a bathroom where we see her lifting her t-shirt, revealing her pretty round belly. The singer also took the opportunity to add the photos taken by Diggzy a few days earlier. It was enough for Internet users to get carried away. At the time of writing this article, more than 17.4 million have liked the photo and 232,000 have left a comment. Absolutely gigantic numbers that even the most followed people on Instagram struggle to reach. By choosing not to announce the news directly on her social networks, Rihanna has thus achieved a real masterstroke! Well done RiRi!

House of Gucci: Lady Gaga forgotten by the Oscars, she speaks on Instagram

A few days ago the nominations for the 2022 Oscars fell: while films such as The Power of the Dog”, “West Side Story” or even “Dune” seem to stand out, many people were surprised not to see “House of Gucci” among the nominees: Adam Driver and Lady Gaga are the big absentees from these nominations and, of course, the singer’s fans were disappointed to see that her performance as Patrizia Reggiani will not be rewarded during of the prestigious ceremony.

However, the film still receives a nomination: Frederic Aspiras is thus named in the category Best make-up and hairstyles. On Instagram, Lady Gaga did not fail to congratulate him: “Frederic was magical, precise and dedicated months before the shooting and during the shooting. He prepared dozens of wigs for months and months, and did at least a year of preparations, ”he wrote, referring to the artist with whom she has worked for 15 years. “We are so grateful to be alongside your talent, your creativity and your generosity of spirit. You continue to show your artistic DNA, your plan, your vision and your deep connection to your family who pushes you to excellence at all times. I love you and I support you”.

In 2019, Lady Gaga won one of the prestigious statuettes for the song Shallow (A Star is Born) while the Oscar for Best Actress was awarded to Olivia Coleman for her performance in The Favorite. In his post, the interpreter of Bad Romance addresses all nominees: “Congratulations on your hard work, your dedication, your nominations and your magic, you all deserve recognition for what has been a magnificent landscape of performances and accomplishments last year.
