- Rihanna’s Savage X Fenty fashion show debuted on Amazon Prime on Oct 2.
- The event included models of different sizes, races and genders.
- At one point, models danced to a song that included audio of someone reading the Hadith, which is “the holy narrative of the Prophet Mohammad that is deeply revered by the Muslim community,” NBC News reports.
Rihanna issued an apology soon after.
- “I’d like to thank the Muslim community for pointing out a huge oversight that was unintentionally offensive in our savage x fenty show,” Rihanna wrote in an Instagram story. “I would more importantly like to apologize to you for this honest, yet careless mistake.

Rihanna hosted her Savage x Fenty fashion show last week and used sacred Islamic verse to soundtrack her show.
After receiving backlash for the incident, Rih issued an apology on Instagram.
Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty show came, saw, and conquered our computer and phone screens last week. I mean, given the fact that there were sooooo many celebrity faces participating in the show—like Paris Hilton, Erika Jayne, Bella Hadid, and more—it was all that people could talk about over the weekend. But something else that people couldn’t stop discussing? The fact that Rih used hadith, the sacred sayings of the prophet Muhammad used to guide Muslims, to soundtrack her show.
According to a Twitter user, Rih’s inclusion of hadith as music was a massive oversight. “As a Muslim, no words can describe how disappointed I am with Rihanna for letting her models dance to hadith,” the person wrote.
Rihanna has apologized after receiving backlash for using a song that includes sacred Islamic scripture during her Savage X Fenty Vol. 2 lingerie fashion show, which was released on Prime Video last week.
Models danced to “Doom” by London-based producer Coucou Chloe during one segment of the show, and fans were quick to call attention to the fact that the 2017 song features a remix of a Hadith narration.
In the Islamic faith, the Hadith is a sacred scripture of the sayings and traditions of the Prophet Mohammed. It “comes secondary only to the Quran in terms of textual authority,” according to CNN.

Rihanna became the target of criticism over the weekend after music, which was played at her Savage X Fenty lingerie fashion show, included a Hadith in its soundtrack.
The 32-year-old songstress, whose real name is Robyn Rihanna Fenty, premiered “Volume 2” of her fashion show on Amazon Prime on Oct. 2, and it didn’t take long until viewers at home pointed out that the “Ocean’s 8” star used a Hadith during a runway portion of the show.
Hadiths are accounts of the sayings of the Prophet Muhammad and are sacred in the Muslim faith.
“I think the person who created the song knew what they were doing,” one person tweeted in regard to the Hadith, which many claim was sped up and mixed with dance music as models galavanted the runway. “That is a very specific hadith. U have to go looking to find it. It’s not something non-muslims know
Megan Thee Stallion is using her hot-girl platform to slam racial injustices.
During the season 46 premiere of Saturday Night Live hosted by Chris Rock this weekend, the “WAP” rapper, 25, performed her hit remix “Savage” (featuring Beyoncé’s vocals) and shared a powerful message for the Black Lives Matter movement.
Toward the end of the first song, gunshot effects took shape on the set behind Megan and her four backup dancers, with soundbites from historical and recent activists heard in the background. One quote called out Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron for his decision made last month in the case of Breonna Taylor.

Although it’s only been three years since former MAC store employee Scott Osbourne Jr., then just 19 years old, took a leap of faith and moved to Los Angeles from Baltimore, Maryland, it has certainly paid off.
Osbourne Jr., now 22, not only aligned with rapper Rico Nasty following his big move, but also women like Beyoncé, Keke Palmer, Saweetie, and many more. Osborne’s electrifyingly bold and precise makeup application is constantly pushing the boundaries, so much so that his technique is now known as “the Scott edit” — a phrase he dreamt up after recognizing his own fearless creativity and skill with makeup. It has quickly catapulted him to the top.
From working on Disney’s Black Is King to becoming a mentee to iconic makeup artist Sir John, Scott has had an otherworldly experience in the beauty industry in a short time. And he’s just getting
