Rihanna received the honour at this year’s Met Gala 2022.

The 34-year-old singer skipped this year’s annual event as she is expecting her first child with boyfriend ASAP Rocky.

Even with he absensce, the Fenty founder was not forgotten, as Vogue and the Met Gala pulled out all the stops to pay tribute to the Diamonds hitmaker – and we’re here for it.

The Met and Vogue erected a statue of Rihanna showing off her baby bump in all its glory in New York’s longstanding museum, after Rihanna was the cover of the magazine.

They shared a video of the statue on Instagram, which was captioned: “The statue of “Eirene (The Personification of Peace)” is usually the highest-profile marble goddess @themetmuseum Greco-Roman galleries. But now we’ve got @badgalriri, straight off this month’s Vogue cover.”

Rihanna shared the cideo on her social media and appeared to be blown away by the gesture.

She captioned her post: “”Shut down the met in marble! what’s more gilded than that? Lol! Thank you @metmuseum and @voguemagazine for this historic tribute! y’all bad for this one!”

Rihanna’s post has received over one million views, and plenty of comments from fans impressed by the statue.

One commented: “Could be the most famous pregnant lady of all time…”

Another shared: “Wasn’t even in attendance & still made an impact! This is so cool”, while a third added: “Making HistoRIH.”
