Rihanna BBHMM Music Video

By Alim Kheraj

B*tch better be scrolling through Instagram, tbh.

When we saw Rihanna's #BBHMM video we were super jealous of her squad of henchwomen who help her kidnap the accountant's wife and generally drive around being bad gals. 

In particular, like a lot of people on the internet, we were enthralled by the woman who hits the blonde over the head with a bottle. 

However, what we didn't know was the AWESOME story behind her appearance in the video. 

Perusing through Instagram's explore feature, Rihanna came across 25-year-old Sanam, an artist who works in a plant shop in Seattle.

Speaking to Vice, Sanam tells of how RiRi followed her on Insta before, two weeks later, sending her a messaging saying: "Hey, I have this idea I want to run by you. I think you're so fucking rare. Let me know if you're interested." 

After receiving another message from a production company asking her to appear in Rihanna's new music video, Sanam was on a plane 24 hours later on her way to shoot the clip. 

We're not gonna lie, we are green with envy.

Like, can we just take a minute to breathe.

We might be jealous, but we're so happy for Sanam!

However, after Rihanna took 80 fans to a secret party and then to learn that she's now lurking around on Instagram, we're feeling a bit left out! 

Next time, pick us yeah RiRi?
