Much like Beyonce, Rihanna has an obvious source for her stunning looks: her mama! We all got a glimpse — although not our first one — at the proud parent when mother Monica Braithwaite presented RiRi with her Icon Award at the AMAs, along with a heartfelt speech:
Rihanna, I’m so proud of you tonight. I know the journey and your career has not always been an easy one, but tonight I applaud and admire you for being so strong and so positive and so humble and so focused. And I mean, it’s amazing how you always manage to take good from all your experiences. I’m so pleased to be a part of this historic moment and I just want to say I’m proud to present to you the first-ever AMA Icon Award.
Aww! So adorable.
Rihanna and her mom are pretty close. In 2012, Monica joined her daughter on Oprah and got a big surprise — a five-bedroom mansion! If only we could all buy our moms houses. It's the least we all could do after those long hours of labor.
Miley Cyrus drew some ire from fans when she cozied up in some fur couture for both the Jingle Ball and New Years Rockin' Eve. The question is: Were the coats faux fur or faux pas?
The "Wrecking Ball" singer has stayed mum on the subject — and, notably, PETA, who follow Miley closely — but we're guessing that the New Years coat, at least, is fake. There's a whole lot of context to any speculation about whether Miley's coat used to be alive, though!
Unfortunately for fans that were hoping Miley didn't wear fur, the Jingle Ball coat looks a lot like real fox. It's a pretty classic design, at the very least, so it's possible that it's a vintage coat.
Long story short: We don't know for sure. But given Miley's history and the designer, we're pretty sure the New Year’s Eve jacket is a fake. We're less sure about the Jingle Ball coat, but given PETA's silence, we bet it's either vintage or a really, really good fake.
