At only 23 years old, Normani is blowing us away with her supersexy dance moves and motivational song lyrics, and even Rihanna (aka the Queen of Badassness herself) is impressed. ICYMI, Rihanna pretty much redefined what it means to have a runway show during her Savage x Fenty Fashion Show on Sept. 20, and Normani was there to close out the show with an incredible and unexpected onstage performance worthy of Rihanna's highest compliments. "NORMANNIIIIII you bad BIH!!!! Ugh why can't I be you?! Thank you sooo much sis! KILLED IT!!!" Rihanna tweeted on Sept. 22. LIFE. GOALS. ACHIEVED.

"This is actually my prayer every night!!! lol," Normani replied. "I literally just told Ed Shapiro, 'I wanna be Rih when I grow up.' I love you trillions queen. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of history." Rihanna also took the time to thank several other people who helped in the Savage x Fenty Fashion Show — including Tierra Whack, Fat Joe, DJ Khaled, and Migos — but Normani is the only who can say her literal prayers have been answered. How's that for motivation? See their full Twitter exchange ahead.
