If there’s anyone who knows a thing or two about pranks, it’s Jimmy Kimmel. For years, he’s had a real prankster relationship with a few stars, including John Krasinski, Emily Blunt, Ben Affleck, and Matt Damon. Usually his famous friends retaliate on him, but this time around, Kimmel was completely blindsided by none other than singer Rihanna.
As an April Fools’ special, Rihanna, with the help of Jimmy’s wife, Molly McNearney, was let into Kimmel’s house the morning of April Fools’ Day. Rihanna, who was a guest on Jimmy’s couch later that day, shared the hilarious April Fools’ prank with the audience from earlier.
At around 1 a.m., Rihanna and her crew, clad all in black, quietly made their way up the stairs of Kimmel’s home for the most epic April Fools’ prank that’s ever been experienced on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Rihanna, in her huge platform shoes, and her crew burst into Kimmel’s room complete with flashing lights and sparkling confetti while blasting the new single, “B***h Better Have My Money.”
The prank wouldn’t be complete without money, so Rihanna made it rain as she jumped on Jimmy’s bed as he woke up completely bewildered by the scene in his bedroom. The host looked like he was shocked and even had to take his mouth guard out to groggily speak. After the whole ordeal was over, Kimmel was later seen in a robe addressing Rihanna and her crew in the living room.
“It seemed like a UFO had landed,” he said.
When Rihanna met up with Kimmel later on in the day to tape his show, the singer explained her motive behind wanting to get Jimmy good.
“I’m a really big fan of your April Fools pranks, so I was like, ‘I want to do that.’ ‘If I’m going on the couch let’s get him pranked.”
After the clip ended, Kimmel joked, “I’ll admit that’s not usually how you come to me in my dreams.” He continued, “And then the rest of the night I was hearing, ‘B***h Better Have My Money.”
Here’s just a few fan responses about Rihanna’s epic prank on Jimmy Kimmel.
