Celebrity power couple Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are big news. Between his music (and odd behavior on Twitter) and her social media empire (and very famous family), the two can dominate any room. But this time their going viral is less planned, more meme-able.
For the nth time, the internet has been broken by Kim Kardashian, but this time because of a video of her reacting to Kanye West staring at Rihanna went viral. Kardashian is a Snapchat vet who documents her day on the app, so it wasn’t surprising when she swiped it open during an outing with her husband to a show where Rihanna was performing. However, another person filmed Kardashian’s phone as she was filming West, providing us with the viral video that shows Rihanna slaying it on stage, Kim taking her snap, and of course, Kanye’s face.
Fans were quick to point out that it seems Kardashian cut the recording short as soon as she noticed her husband’s 100% absorbed-in-the-show face. Rihanna is an incredibly talented singer, dancer, and all-around performer. Her show was no doubt spectacular so, really, if it was us we’d have the same reaction as Ye, for sure.

Fans were quick to comment on and joke about the video. One fan tweeted: “I want someone to look at me the way Kanye looks at Rihanna.” Another fan referenced West’s famous self-absorption, saying “So only Rihanna and Kanye can make Kanye smile,” while a third tweeted what we are all thinking: “Who doesn’t look at Rihanna like that?” True.
