Rihanna Liked My Tikka-Clad Selfie

Embracing your culture can make you famous and besties with superstars

Posted: 09.07.15

Seattle based Sanam has proven that a confident and statement-making selfie can go a long way. The 25-year-old desi girl donned a traditional nose ring nath and a matching bejewelled head tikka, but her pose resonated ‘bad girl with attitude’ rather than the conventional coy seedhi saadhi Indian girl look. It’s no wonder then, that the ‘bad girl’ selfie attracted the ultimate bad girl of pop Rihanna, who was exploring on Instagram and stumbled upon Sanam’s bold selfie, only for it to strike a chord with her. Within days, Rihanna messaged Sanam, calling her ‘rare’ and asking her to star in her latest video for B*tch Better Have My Money, in which Sanam features as one of Rihanna’s very own squad of bad girls. The caption alongside the winning selfie stated ‘When you have to flex on all the white girls wearing bad henna and bindis 1 time’ – Sanam was clearly in the mood to express herself and her identity, by representing her desi vibe by dripping in Asian-style adornments to show the mainstreamers how it’s done. You go girlfriend! Now where’s my tikka and nath
