Celebrity Metalheads, Metal In The Mainstream

RIHANNA Reveals Death Metal Logo at #VMAs

Rihanna might just be a metalhead. In the past, she's been spotted in Judas Priest shirts (Rob Halford approved), Krokus shirts and gaudy metal jackets and sweatpants. If nothing else, she does enjoy the metal aesthetic.

And that was clear during one of her four (!) performances at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards, when a giant death metal styling of her name flashed across the screen during a medley of her more "edgy" songs like "Bitch Better Have My Money," a song Korn took it upon themselves to make more metal in the past. A quick browse of Twitter shows that people mostly approve, and want to grab a shirt. We've collected the tweets below.

Rihanna follows the new trend of metal in mainstream fashion. Harper's Bazaar has deemed metal tees the look of the summer. Justin Bieber is selling a Marilyn Manson tee with his death metal logo on it for $195. And everybody from Metallica to Marilyn Manson are enlisted in fashion campaigns.



Rihanna follows Kim Kardashian wearing an overpriced Metallica teeKanye West proudly rocking a Megadeth t-shirt (and ridiculously gaudy metal sweatpants), as well as Kendall Jenner photographed wearing not just a Megadeth shirt but a Slayer t-shirt as well. Noisey has officially declared Kim punk as fuck.

Rihanna might have a death metal logo, but she's not as metal as Kesha.
