Giorgio Baldi would never.
Pity the person who dares deny Rihanna a night of cocktails and arcade game play with A$AP Rocky.
In a new video clip circulating online, the “We Found Love” singer and her rapper boyfriend were seen attempting to get into a New York City bar (supposedly Barcade in Williamsburg), where security apparently stopped the pair from entering due to them not having identification on hand.
We’ll repeat for clarity: Rihanna, a global bona fide music, beauty, fashion icon and multimillionaire, and A$AP Rocky, one of the most handsomely gorgeous rappers and male fashion icons to simply exist, were denied entry into a bar. Rihanna was even dressed to the nines in a vintage bright-pink John Galliano for Dior slipdress and matching faux-fur bucket hat for the occasion—who else would she really be? Giorgio Baldi, her much frequented L.A. hot spot, would never.
According to further reporting, the two eventually were let in and didn’t let the initial denial stop them from having a PDA-filled date. The night out for Rihanna and Rocky marks one of the first times the two have been seen being affectionate in public together and comes after the rapper recently opened up about their relationship to GQ.
Rocky described being coupled up with Rihanna as “so much better” than life as a bachelor. “[It’s] so much better. So much better when you got the One,” Rocky told the magazine of the pair’s burgeoning relationship. “She amounts to probably, like, a million of the other ones. I think when you know, you know. She’s the One.”
