The Daily Heat Index: Rihanna Throws Shade at Steph Curry After Warriors Lose NBA Championship

Plus: HBO’s ‘Westworld’ gets a trailer and Chewbacca Mom lands an action figure.


Here’s a daily dose of what’s heating up the internet:

Rihanna Roots for LeBron 
Barbadian princess Rihanna was pretty vocal Sunday night in congratulating Lebron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers NBA championship win. Through a series of Instagram posts, Badgirlriri praised #23 with a little decorative sunscreen designs on her stomach, all while using her infamous “Bitch Better Have My Money” lyrics to throw a little shade at Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry. Better luck next year, Steph.

Westworld‘s First Trailer
HBO has a brand new series debuting this October, but don’t expect to understand it at first glance. Westworld, an old Western take with some seriously trippy sci-fi elements, goes from 0 to 100 real quick courtesy of a clear shift from this fictional desert land back to underground, secret laboratories. Expect plenty more teasers to come ahead of the premiere in just a few months.

HASBRO x Chewbacca Mom
Candace Payne obtained local celebrity status after a Facebook Live video of her purchasing a Chewbacca mask from Kohl’s went viral, gaining enough traction to put her on numerous talk shows and set tours. The latest move to honor her new found fame involves a trip to HASBRO, where the mother of two obtained her very own ‘Chewbacca Mom’ action figure, fit with a hairy Wookie body and a replica face. Dreams do come true.
