When Brad took the stage to introduce Rihanna at her First Annual Diamond Ball on Dec. 11, it appeared more like a roast session of the ‘Stay’ singer! The actor took some funny digs at RiRi and said things went ‘downhill’ when she met Jay Z.
Rihanna certainly has a lot of amazing accomplishments, though Brad Pitt may not be impressed! During Rihanna’s First Annual Diamond Ball on Dec. 11, Brad, 50, introduced Rihanna, 26, the guest of honor and founder of the event, while sarcastically taking digs at her and friend Jay Z. We know it was in good fun, but found it a little bizarre on RiRi’s big night!
Brad Pitt Disses Rihanna In Diamond Ball Speech: Blames Jay Z In Funny Joke
Brad innocently started out his speech by sharing a sweet childhood pic of RiRi, before transitioning into full-blown making fun at the “S&M” singer!
“I’ve often asked the very question that you yourself are asking right now: What the f–k went wrong? I give you exhibit A: Yes, look at that young girl before you. All full of hopes and dreams. Living a humble existence in the Barbados parish, her whole life ahead of her. And what happened? It’s not a pretty story,” Brad said according to Us Weekly.
“Like so many others, Rihanna landed on the unforgiving streets of New York at the young age of 16, and soon fell in with a bad crowd — a bad crowd led by the dubious nefarious character known as the Jay Z. For those of you not in the know, the Jay Z was an evil impresario known for churning out hit records, and ripping insane lyrics and fresh beats. Needless to say, it was all downhill from there.”
Whoa — that’s some major shade Brad threw at the successful rapper who discovered Rihanna’s talent when she auditioned for him. Of course we know Brad has a sarcastic sense of humor and was clearly trying to be funny, but we only hope Rihanna and Jay Z see it that way!
Brad went on to list Rihanna’s “only” accomplishments and “disappointing” resume as an executive producer, fashion designer, actress, entrepreneur, philanthropist, and a sometimes singer. He then closed his speech with a photo-shopped overweight Rihanna eating junk food on a couch.
“I ask that we stand together, by her side, and show her our support and our love and say to her the hard words. Rihanna, put down that sandwich, get off your a** and do something. God d*** it, just do something with your life. Thank you.”
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Did you think Brad’s speech was funny or offensive to Rihanna? Let us know!
