There are few women who draw as much fanfare as Beyonce and Rihanna. Both women have built up musical brands that span far outside the limits of touring and have expanded into the worlds of cosmetics, fashion, and philanthropy. So, given their clout, it's unsurprising that Twitter exploded when Beyonce and Rihanna reunited at Diamond Ball on Thursday night.
When the two took a selfie at Rihanna's third annual Diamond Ball fundraiser, Twitter was ecstatic with love.
The fundraiser raises proceeds for the Clara Lionel Foundation in Los Angeles, which gives resources to underprivileged communities for art, health and education. The foundation itself was named after Rihanna's grandparents Clara and Lionel Braithwaite.
