We’ve learned two things about Rihanna over the past several days:
- She is not a fan of Chris Brown any longer.
- She is a very big fan of LeBron James.
The pop singer attended Game 1 of the NBA Finals this month, sat courtside and cheered loudly for the Cleveland Cavaliers star.
Alas, his team fell to the Golden State Warriors, both in the opening contest and overall in the championship round, by a score of four games to one.
It wasn’t an especially close series, which is why one of the highlights took place after Kevin Durant drilled a three-pointer and then stared down Rihanna.
He was very much aware of where RiRi’s rooting interests lay.
Fast forward to the day after the Warriors earned the title with a 129-120 victory in Game 5 and Rihanna wasn’t done paying tribute to James, who is often referred to as “King.”
In one of the most random and hilarious videos we’ve seen shared by a celebrity on social media in awhile, the artist posted a lengthy clip from The Lion King.
Except she’s imposed her own face over that of Simba.
And the face of LeBron over Mufasa.
And the face of Durant over Scar.
The scene in question is one of the most dramatic in the classic film, as Mufasa saves Simba’s life, only to then be killed by his own brother.
So, in this analogy, Rihanna is accusing Durant of… murder?
“#LongLiveTheKing #KingisStillKingBitch (whispers congrats to KD, cause….ROCNation) BUT: me and @mdollas11 beefing all summer!!” wrote Rihanna as a caption to this footage.
