Rihanna may not be in attendance at the Met Gala 2022 but the event was still graced by her presence through a statue of her, a tribute from the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Vogue magazine.

The Barbadian singer showed a montage video of Met’s statues along with hers and described it as a “historic tribute,” as per her Instagram and Twitter pages yesterday, May 3.


“Shut down the [Met] in marble! What’s more gilded than that? [Laughing out loud]! Thank you [Metropolitan Museum of Art] and [Vogue Magazine] for this historic tribute! [You all] bad for this one!” she said.

The marble figure was inspired by Rihanna’s recent photo shoot with the fashion magazine where the singer flaunted her growing baby bump, donning a fitted red lace bodysuit.

“The statue of ‘Eirene (The Personification of Peace)’ is usually the highest-profile marble goddess [Met Museum] Greco-Roman galleries. But now we’ve got [Rihanna] straight off this month’s Vogue cover,” it said.
