Supernova celebrity Rihanna cannot risk being seen in public with a fashion fail that raises eyebrows. That is why she takes special measures to ensure she always looks radiant and red carpet ready.

And speaking of eyebrows, Rihanna does not mess around. The "What's My Name?" singer has lookalike models to test eyebrow styles so she can choose a flawless look tailored to her visage.


Hollywood brow artist Damone Roberts revealed a beauty secret from when he prepped Rihanna for the Met Gala earlier this year at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art.

He said the R&B singer consulted him on lightening her brows, and he spilled the details with Entertainment Tonight on what went down.

"So Rihanna's so fly that she has a lookalike model come by your space and you try out different looks on the eyebrows on the model and you send pictures to Rihanna and she decides whether she wants to do it or not!"

Roberts is clearly a fan and enjoyed reminiscing about working together.

He continued:

"So literally a lookalike model we trialed and tried and everything else until we got them perfect and we sent Rihanna the pictures and we heard nothing and of course two days before the Met Gala she's like, 'I loved them! You gotta fly to NY and take care of me!' and do them and whatnot, and of course Rihanna shut down the show! It was really, really special."

Tapping into the "Heavenly Bodies" theme of the 2018 Met Gala, Rihanna reigned supreme with papal headgear and draped in a cream-colored, jewel-studded gown by designer John Galliano.


Only royalty like this pop music queen can appoint lookalike models to test out eyebrow styles for her, and it is clear Rihanna embraced this year's theme with her magisterial grace.

She wore it well – brows, gowns, et al.








Roberts' A-list clientele consists of other fierce luminaries, including, Beyonce, Rihanna, Christina Aguilera, Kim Kardashian-West, Jenna Dewan, Tracee Ellis Ross, and Nicki Minaj, to name a few.

When considering shaping a client's eyebrows, Roberts studies the a client's facial features first. He used Reese Witherspoon – "who has say a more of a longer chin" – as an example.

"You don't want to give them a higher arch because what happens is it creates more space between the face, so you would give her a straighter eyebrow which would kind of shorten things."
"Someone like Brooke Shields has more or strong features, so you don't want to give her a really strong arch because it's going to make her face look a lot more severe. You want it to be softer, so you give her a softer arch."

After working with Rihanna, Roberts gushed about her personality and said she has "become one of his favorite people."

"Now of course I was a fan like everyone else, but once I started working with her this year I have become a fan of her as a person because she is so fly and dope!"

We can't argue with that.

Conspiracy theories are beliefs that there are covert powers that be changing the course of history for their own benefits. It's how we see the rise of QAnon conspiracies and people storming the capital.

Why do people fall for them? Well some research has looked into the reasons for that.

The Association for Psychological Science published a paper that reviewed some of the research:

"This research suggests that people may be drawn to conspiracy theories when—compared with nonconspiracy explanations—they promise to satisfy important social psychological motives that can be characterized as epistemic (e.g., the desire for understanding, accuracy, and subjective certainty), existential (e.g., the desire for control and security), and social (e.g., the desire to maintain a positive image of the self or group)."

Whatever the motivations may be, we wanted to know which convoluted stories became apart of peoples consciousness enough for them to believe it.

I hate ghosts, even if it's Casper. My life is already stressful enough. I don't need to creeped out by spirits from the beyond. Shouldn't they be resting and basking in the glow of the great beyond instead of menacing the rest of us?

The paranormal seems to be consistently in unrest, which sounds like death isn't any more fun or tranquil than life. So much for something to look forward to.

Some ghosts just like to scare it up. It's not always like "Ghosthunters" the show.

Redditor u/Murky-Increase4705 wanted to hear about all the times we've faced some hauntings that left us shook, by asking:

Reddit, what are your creepy encounters with something that you are convinced was paranormal?

A lot of talk going on about women's bodies, isn't there?

Not necessarily with women front and center as part of the conversation, unfortunately.
