Rihanna was all about the walk and the walking, she made walking look cool. Walking is cool again now because of Rihanna. We love it. She definitely was the show vs. put on a show. The "anti-spectacle" idea is spot on.

One of my friends said the ht show was "entirely forgettable" - but I think that's just cuz they don't have a developed imagination/sense for wonder. I found myself also being a lazy viewer, probably because FOOTBALL was present on either side of the show...

**can we be done obsessing over RiRi now** 😂
