Rihanna on Snapchat

Remember the enormous headless statue of Rihanna that was installed in Berlin for the city's ninth Biennale for Contemporary Art? It's the work of Juan Sebastián Peláez, an artist from Colombia. Juan unveiled the piece, titled Ewaipanoma (Rihanna), in June this year: It's part of a larger series where the artist superimposes celebrity's heads onto their bodies, displaying them larger-than-life.

While in the area for her ANTI tour, Rihanna payed the artwork a visit in a Vetements suit, sharing the experience on Snapchat. Champagne in hand, she mimicked the sculpture's poses with her friends — it was  an extremely meta day out. Based on the joyful series of videos, we reckon she's a fan of the piece. Now, it's back to the road as she visits England then heads back to New York for her wildly successful tour.
