Rihanna pays respect to the Black Mamba.
Following messages from Ice Cube, Lil Wayne, and Drake, Rihanna is the latest artist to honor Kobe Bryant with a heartfelt dedication. Taking to Instagram on Monday night, the singer was still in a state of shock. She paid homage to the NBA champion, his 13-year-old daughter Gianna, and the seven others who lost their lives in the helicopter crash.
“still doesn’t feel real…still can’t find the right words,” Rihanna wrote alongside a photo of Bryant holding a young Gianna. “We miss you man! 🙏🏿💔 May God have mercy on the Bryant family and the families of all the souls we lost!”
