Our girl R&B singer Rihanna was just dropped from Nivea Cosmetics for being “Too Hot”.
The star appeared in a series of adverts for the firm, which was a sponsor of her world tour last year, to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the company.
And now cosmetic tycoon Stefan Heidenreich – the new head of Nivea’s parent firm, Beiersdorf – has told German media that the singer should have been considered a ‘no go’ for the brand’s family image.
In one ad, a family is seen moisturizing with Nivea while Rihanna’s sultry hit California King Bed plays in the background.
The original video of the song shows the star wearing stockings and lingerie writhing with a man on a bed. Heidenreich added: ‘Nivea is a company which stands for trust, family and reliability.’
Our girl Ri Ri wasn’t happy about the situation, we can tell from her tweet.
