'SNL's' Sasheer Zamata Reveals Rihanna Was Kinda Shady When the Two First Met


Saturday Night Live‘s newest cast member Sasheer Zamata opened up about what it was like to meet Rihanna, and apparently their encounter wasn’t entirely pleasant.

The two met for the first time prior to Rihanna serving as the musical guest on SNL‘s May 16 season finale.

Sasheer, who’s portrayed Rihanna several times on the show, spoke during a live chat at Union Hall in Brooklyn for Brunch Night with Jamie LeeLo Saturday and said the following about meeting the superstar.

“We had had a good night after the dress rehearsal, and she turned around and saw me and she was like ‘Hey!’ and she gave me a hug. Then she got drunker progressively throughout the show, and at the end of good nights for the actual show, I went up to give her a hug because I was like ‘We’re good, we’re besties now. And I was like ‘Hey!’ and she was like [mimes bored wave]. So I was like ‘Ohhh, wow your true feelings are coming out!'”


We hope Rihanna and Sasheer’s last encounter was one big misunderstanding.
