Rihanna’s BET Awards Appearance ‘Fresh-Faced And Gorgeous’ Though New Puppy Didn’t Let Her Sleep

Rihanna’s Snapchat is filled with adorable videos of the singer’s new puppy. The night before the BET awards, Rihanna was out partying at a 1Oak nightclub in Los Angeles and found the puppy abandoned in a bathroom.

Most people come home with a hangover from a night of clubbing, but Rihanna likes to be different. “Well, I found him in the bathroom somewhere, and he ran up to me,” she said in a Snapchat video.

Rihanna’s friends were clearly surprised by the new addition to her household. It’s not every day you go out for a drink and bring home a cute little puppy. One friend can be heard in the background of a Snapchat clip expressing his astonishment.

“She literally just went to the club, came back with a cage, wee-wee pads, food — and a f*****g dog!”

The 27-year-old “Bitch Better Have My Money” singer is delighted with her cute little puppy, and has named him “Pepe.” According to online publication Gossip Cop, no one has come forward to claim the abandoned puppy, and Rihanna is loving every minute of caring for her furry friend. Pepe snuggled up with Rihanna in bed while she tried to rock him to sleep, unleashing “her maternal instincts.” But Pepe didn’t want to go to sleep and started biting the zipper on Rihanna’s denim jacket instead. The star didn’t mind Pepe’s nibbles and captioned that video, “So cute!” with tearful emoticons.

The lack of sleep and the demands of being a puppy mom didn’t stop Rihanna from looking as “fresh-faced and gorgeous” as ever at the BET awards the next day. The star even had the energy to stop in at her abusive ex boyfriend’s rehearsal. Rihanna and Chris Brown had a secret backstage conversation where “absolutely no one was allowed” to see or overhear them, according to a source who spoke to Hollywood Life. The same source filled in a bit of what went on between Rihanna and Chris Brown.

“She told him to have a good show, watched about a minute or two of the rehearsal, and then left.”

Later in the evening, Rihanna was spotted singing along to Chris Brown’s performance.

Although some people are more interested in the Rihanna and Chris story, a lot of others just want to hear more about the story of the ever chill Rihanna and her new puppy.
