Rihanna shared some keen observations from her trip to Australia during a taping of E!’s “Chelsea Lately” this week. The red-haired superstar, who is currently down under to wrap her “Last Girl on Earth” tour, noticed the lack of black people among the indigenous population while scoping out the audience at her shows.
“I look around at my concerts and there is like one or two,” she told Chelsea Handler. “It is a rare thing that these people can be very black, too.”
The Bajan babe was in awe of the few people of color that she spotted in the crowd. “They are very beautiful, very special,” she told the host, who quipped back, stating she had only seen “three-and-a-half black people” while filming three episodes of her show in Sydney.
RiRi, who will launch her “LOUD” tour in the U.S. this June, will chat with the comedienne on Thursday’s episode of the late-night program.
