Did Rihanna Use a Body Double in Emporio Armani Ads? Singer Speaks Out (Photos)
Rihanna Denies ‘Butt Double’ Reports
Robyn Rihanna Fenty is often revered for her toned yet vastly feminine body that features sky-high legs and a taught tummy. Why then would she need a body double? More specifically, why would this 24-year-old Bajan beauty need a so-called booty double? That’s the question that the singer’s asking today after several sites claimed she enlisted the help of a model to portray her posterior.
Just last year, the bad girl songstress posed for Armani jeans and showed off her best assets in skimpy lingerie before shifting into the company’s signature denim. In one of the ads which can be seen below, a close-up of Rihanna’s behind is shown before she slips into jeans. Now according to British newspaper The Sun, that bottom didn’t belong to her and was instead that of model Jahnassa Aicken. While virtually unknown in the U.S., Aicken is said to be a 27-year-old Irish model who signed a contract banning her from talking about the job. A reported source tells the paper however, “Jahnassa’s torso, body and bum appear in parts of the ad.” The source later added, “It’s shocking Rihanna wanted one, considering she loves posing with no clothes — plus she’s in great shape.”
The Sun also reports that the model was spotted by reps for the singer on the set of her “We Found Love” video and was used as a stand-in before landing the Armani butt double deal.
Since news of her reported double surfaced, Rihanna has responded in the best way she knows how; with a vulgar rant on Twitter, “Ok @thesunnewspaper, this is the only way I could say this to you!!!, she wrote. “F—- YOU….AND yo baggy a– condom!”
She later questioned the model’s identity and noted that she doesn’t have her trademark tribal tattoo that can be easily seen in the ad.
Do you believe the songstress who’s always eager to be semi-nude really used a double? Check out some pictures of Jahnassa below. –danielle canada
