ASAP Rocky Explains His Approach To Fashion: “I’m Drawn To Things That Others Look Past”

Call him what you want, pretty motherf*cker, fashion killa, or A$AP Rocky. Either way, he’s almost always the best-dressed in the room – and he knows it. Since he first came up as a rapper the New York native has carried himself with the utmost confidence, wearing whatever makes him feel (and look) like number one. Earlier this month Rocky – born Rakim Mayers – spoke with The Times about some of his personal style preferences, specifically explaining why he doesn’t go all-out for red-carpet events as some other celebs do.

“They look silly sometimes. Shout out to the people who actually execute,” the soon-to-be father of two told the outlet. He mentioned that he views his music and fashion in a similar light – they’re both methods of expression he enjoys using to surprise people. The self-proclaimed “godfather of mixing it up” also finds himself “naturally attracted to things that other people might find too obscure or too complicated.” Obviously, he’s referring to the hilarious shirt he sported during a recent trip to Japan, fully clad with miniature versions of him running through Paris in his Timbs.

ASAP Rocky is a Man Who Knows What He Likes

For Rocky, it’s all about what’s not obvious to the average eye. “I like to think I’m drawn to things that others look past. Since my first song, I’ve been rapping about Raf Simons and Rick Owens. It was also about mixing high-end with streetwear. I do that in my sleep,” he bragged. Elsewhere in their chat, the “Houston Old Head” hitmaker showed love to those in the fashion industry working hard to put together countless shows every season.

“I think going to a fashion show is the same as going to see an artist on stage – most people don’t realize what it takes. It’s incredible how they do it and I tip my hat to them,” he told The Times.

A$AP Rocky Lashes Out At Club Patrons Fighting In Front Of Rihanna: “Act Like Gentleman”

No matter where they travel together, A$AP Rocky and Rihanna continue to set the standard as couple goals. Earlier this year, the lovers made headlines as the rapper proudly supported his partner during her Super Bowl Halftime performance, and following that, we saw them serve up countless incredible looks during their trip to Paris. More recently, Rocky and Rih caught a flight to Japan, where the New Yorker has been in the news for a variety of reasons, including wearing a meme t-shirt of himself running in Timbs.

Besides that funny fashion moment, A$AP is also receiving immense praise for the way he handled a situation unfolding in front of him and the “Desperado” songstress at a club over the weekend. In a video circulating online, a group of people begin fighting in front of the 34-year-old and Rihanna, prompting him to swiftly speak out. “Y’all n*ggas act like gentlemen right now, you heard?” he demanded. “I got my lady here, y’all n*ggas calm that,” Rocky added, reminding those in the vicinity that they were in the presence of a queen.

A$AP Rocky Protects His Partner

“Y’all calm that shit down man, don’t be in this section doing all that shit. Calm that shit down y’all,” the “Houston Old Head” hitmaker continued to call the troublemakers out as fans recorded. “Act like gentlemen when y’all in our presence,” Rocky added once more before the clip cuts out. In the comments, many are commending the fashion lover for protecting Rihanna from any energy that might stress her out, even if it wasn’t directly aimed toward her.

Elsewhere in the news, the Fenty Beauty founder broke the internet last week with a nearly-nude maternity shoot from her first pregnancy with RZA. As the arrival of her second baby nears closer, we’ve continued to see her dish out more bold style inspiration for expecting mothers, though it remains unclear if she’s having another boy, or a girl this time. Would you defend your partner the same way A$AP Rocky looks out for Rihanna? Let us know in the comments, and tap back in with HNHH later for more music/pop culture news updates.

A$AP Rocky has had a lot of big moments so far this year. First was watching his partner, Rihanna, reveal the news of their second baby during her Super Bowl Halftime performance. Later, he took over Paris with his incredible street style. A few weeks back, the New Yorker was seen filming a music video in the city of love. At the time, he impressively sprinted through the streets wearing blue jeans, a white tee, and of course, Timberland boots. The shoes certainly would’ve made it impossible for nearly anyone else to move with such speed.

Footage of the hilarious moment subsequently went viral online, causing many to laugh at the 34-year-old’s antics. While it’s mostly been forgotten about by now in favour of other stories, Rocky reminded us of his European escapades this weekend by wearing a shirt paying tribute to the moment. In a clip that’s making rounds, the Testing rapper wears a white tee covered with various miniature versions of him mid-run in his infamous outfit. He paired it with pink cargo pants, ever the lover of integrating femininity into his looks.

As High Snobiety reports, A$AP meme’d himself while currently in Japan with Rihanna, completing the look with Dior sneakers. The brand responsible for putting him on a shirt is @waaaavyyy, and they’ve also created matching jeans in the same pattern. It remains unclear if the soon-to-be father of two received the full outfit, though we do know he’s promised the arrival of his highly anticipated “Don’t Be Dumb” visual in the near future.

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen the multi-talent poke fun at his own viral moments. After getting caught up in a terrifying moshpit during a rowdy performance, he included a similar scene in his “Shittin’ Me” music video, much to the internet’s pleasure.

RZA’s 1st Birthday Party: Rihanna & A$AP Rocky Go All Out For Their Son

It feels like just yesterday when Rihanna and A$AP Rocky broke the news of their first pregnancy together. Now, the cozy couple is well on their way to welcoming their second baby. They also just celebrated the first birthday of their son, RZA, yesterday (May 13). In true billionaire style, the Bad Gal and her beau went all-out for their party, spoiling the stylish infant with a money cake, along with plenty of other special moments before he officially becomes a big brother.

RZA’s second trip around the sun began with a heartwarming message from his father on Instagram. “‘WU TANG IZ 4 DA CHUREN.’ HAPPY 1ST BIRTHDAY TO MY 1ST BORN,” Rocky captioned his photo dump, which includes various photos and videos of him posing with his mini-me. Rihanna also makes various appearances, looking happily in love with both her man and the little one they made together.

Later in the day, friends of the musically-talented couple joined them at RZA to party and watch him blow out his candles. As per usual, the 1-year-old had a huge smile on his face, though he appears to have gotten increasingly sleepy as the event waged on, taking a nap in his father’s arms in some clips circulating online.

Ever the excellent hostess, Rihanna made sure to keep her guests entertained with great music all night long. Guests at the function recorded themselves dancing along to Nicki Minaj’s “Red Ruby Da Sleeze” around the same time the Queen of Rap finally unveiled the single’s music video last night. Elsewhere, the Barbadian posed for plenty of photos, proudly putting her sparkly baby bump on display while celebrating the one she already welcomed.

A$AP Rocky Wishes His Firstborn Son With Rihanna, RZA, A Happy 1st Birthday

Just a couple of days after news broke of their son’s name, A$AP Rocky shared an adorable Instagram post wishing his firstborn child with Rihanna, their son RZA, a happy first birthday. With it, he not only confirmed the name but paid further tribute to the Wu-Tang Clan, one of whose iconic members is the namesake of the little one. “‘WU TANG IZ 4 DA CHUREN,’”Rocky wrote, referencing Wu member Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s historic (and interruptive) speech at the Grammys. “HAPPY 1st BIRTHDAY TO MY 1st BORN. RZA.” He also shared a lot of cute snaps with his kid and with RiRi.

What’s more is that RZA’s name puts the couple previous fits into mind-blowing context. Of course, there’s a lot to choose from, as the two are always turning heads for their style and fashion sense. However, the hint was in our faces all along, albeit quite the hard hint to catch from just a sweater. While out on the town with A$AP Rocky, Rihanna was pictured wearing a Wu-Tang jersey, which is the kind of small tease that seems so intentional in hindsight.

Happy First Birthday, RZA! (No, Not That One)

As the couple expects their second child together, they’ve both spoken on the joys of parenthood. “It’s beautiful,” A$AP Rocky shared about being a father. “Honestly, I think fatherhood gives me more time to do exactly what I want.  I don’t have time for anything that isn’t priorities. It helps you prioritize, honestly. I love it. Everything is just based around my newfound love for being a dad and a family man. It’s lit right now. I can’t even describe it. Yo, you see this smile! I’m all smiles right now, man.

A$AP Rocky’s Original Post

“I’m in a place where I want to give my all to all of this,” he continued. “All I have is my craft, my art, my family. That’s just my life. I just want to give motherf***ers some dope s**t. They’re going to see. It’s going to be ill.” Hopefully that next album comes sooner rather than later, especially considering that he’s been spotted filming for something in Paris. Regardless, check back in with HNHH for the latest on A$AP Rocky, Rihanna, and little RZA.

Not only is the first birthday of their son quickly approaching, but Rihanna and A$AP Rocky have also been busy preparing for the arrival of their second child together. While the average person might spend the months before giving birth putting in extra work to make sure their family is financially secure, the billionaire Bad Gal and her beau have other priorities – such as showing off their New York street style. We’ve been seeing plenty of noteworthy looks from the two artists as of late, as well as some solo styles from Rih that prove she’s a “Fashion Killa,” with or without her man by her side.

After serving up some futuristic, Game of Thrones-inspired garments for us last week, the 35-year-old and A$AP stepped out once again on Sunday (May 7). While she was born in Barbados, Rihanna is undeniably an NYC girl at heart, as she proudly showed off with her latest look. This one saw her layering a mesh bra top over a white bra, leaving her rotund baby bump on display above her baggy, mid-wash jeans. Seeing as there was still a spring chill in the air, she layered up with a black and brown fur coat, completing the outfit with a handbag and the ultimate east coast shoe – Timbs.

Rihanna and Rocky Hit the Town…Again

Rocky has been doing an astounding job of letting Rihanna shine beside him as of late. For their Sunday night outing, he donned black joggers and a zip-up hoodie with plenty of graphics printed across the front. Rather than trying to match her over-the-top energy, the Testing hitmaker simply subtly compliments it, giving his partner (and their growing baby) her moment in the spotlight.

While at the Met Gala last week, the “Where Have You Been” hitmaker gave a few pregnancy updates during her time on the red carpet. This time around she said she’s had “tons of nausea,” but none of the intense cravings that she dealt with while carrying her son. Do you think that Rihanna and A$AP Rocky are having another boy, or a girl this time around? Let us know in the comments, and tap back in later for more pop culture/hip-hop news updates.

Rihanna Gives Futuristic “Game of Thrones” Vibes While Out In Soho With A$AP Rocky

Just when you think Rihanna’s given us her most iconic maternity serve, she follows it with something even better. May has been a particularly busy month for the 35-year-old. She spent Monday with her man, A$AP Rocky at the Met Gala. Since then, the Bad Gal has been seen taking over the streets of New York City practically every night. We’ve seen her wearing everything from custom Chrome Hearts to her latest stunning ensemble, which radiates Game of Thrones vibes.

On Friday (May 5), she and the “Houston Old Head” rapper headed to an event at Cipriani in Soho. Rihanna’s upper half was decked out in decadent furs of various colours. Further down, her entire midriff was on display, showing that she’s at least halfway through her second pregnancy. The “Disturbia” songstress seems to be a huge fan of the mini skirt this season. She’s donned various colours and styles with her latest outfits. Last night’s, in particular, was a deep brown leather design with panels crisscrossing in the front to show off Rih’s thighs.

Are Rihanna and Rocky the Best-Dressed Celebrity Parents?

The “Fashion Killa”‘s heels, which appear to be snakeskin, were laced up around her calves, sitting just below the knee as she confidently walked with Rocky toward their final destination. For his part, the soon-to-be father of two wore casual grey cargo shorts under a white button-up and a leather jacket. Standing beside Rihanna, he looks far more dressed down, allowing his partner a moment to shine proudly in the spotlight.

She’s certainly more than happy to show off her baby bump for fans, but the ANTI artist is keeping details about her unborn child on the low for now. During her first pregnancy, the little one’s gender wasn’t publicly revealed until his birth. Nearly one year after his arrival, we also still don’t know the name his parents picked for him, though we have seen plenty of his adorable face.

Rihanna Brings Bridal Energy In New 2023 Met Gala Photos With A$AP Rocky

Much like her arrival at the actual event, Rihanna is sharing her 2023 Met Gala photo dumps fashionably late. The annual event unfolded on the first Monday of May, but it wasn’t until Friday (May 5), that the “Rude Boy” singer’s Instagram feed lit up with more photos of her and the rapper’s tributes to Karl Lagerfeld. She first surfaced on the red carpet in a white, floral gown that’s been compared to icing piped on top of a cupcake on Twitter, but by the end of her walk, Rih revealed a beautiful white gown underneath, which perfectly hugged her quickly growing baby bump.

The 35-year-old looked undeniably bridal in her bright ensemble, and Rocky looked as dapper as ever by her side. He kept it business on the top half, layering a sharp black blazer over a white button-up and a thin tie. Beneath his various belts, the vibe was much wilder, with a traditional kilt layered over light-wash bedazzled jeans and black, silver-toed boots. In her first IG post of the day, Rihanna quipped about tying the knot earlier this week in the caption. “Shout outz 2 the bridal party… Here come de bride #idoKARL #METgala2023.”

Rihanna’s 2023 Met Gala Photo Dump

Seeing as it’s become a tradition for some fashion houses to end each runway presentation with a bridal look, it only makes sense for Rihanna to be the last to arrive at the Met Gala with such an on-theme look. Throughout her carousel, we see various angles of her and the New Yorker posing for the media pit together, as well as a stunning snap that shows the sheer length of the Bad Gal’s train. From the looks of her last selection, she and A$AP seem to have been all smiles for yet another New York City date night together.

Shortly after that landed, the expecting mother’s post count grew by one more as she shared more sweet behind-the-scenes moments. “Just another manic Monday,” her caption reads.

A$AP Rocky Apologizes to Fan He Hopped Over Before Met Gala: ‘My Fault $weetheart’


A$AP Rocky has apologized to the woman he jumped over at The Met Gala.

A$AP Rocky was set to attend the 2023 Met Gala, but it appeared he was running a bit late. Earlier in the evening, Rihanna was spotted entering The Carlyle Hotel solo. Then, to some fans’ surprise, Rocky was hopping a barricade to enter the building while other fans were strolling out.

He would later emerge dressed, next to a stunning Rihanna.

The next day A$AP Rocky hit Twitter with an apology.

Rihanna & A$AP Rocky’s Met Gala After-Party Looks May Be More Iconic Than Their Red Carpet Fits

The responses to Rihanna and A$AP Rocky’s two Met Gala appearances together have been mixed. In 2021, the famous pair went with oversized vibes. The rapper used a blanket as a cloak while his partner wore an extra-long Balenciaga coat, keeping herself concealed. They previously skipped out on appearing in 2022. This year, however, Rihanna made it clear she would be stepping out in style. Last weekend, she teased the big news in a vintage Chanel outfit during a dinner in New York. Some have said that Rih’s prelude look was even better than the one she served at the main event.

While her extravagant, floral design, accessorized with eyelash-clad sunglasses obviously wasn’t for everyone, the look the expecting mother wore for Dua Lipa’s after-party has the internet singing her praise. The all-white set was put together just for Rihanna by Chrome Hearts. It comfortably conceals her upper half while allowing her budding baby bump to sit above the matching skirt, which comes with a flirtatious slit up the front.

Rihanna and Rocky’s Iconic After-Party Outfits

Throughout her second pregnancy, Rihanna continues to wear heels – these ones beautifully lacing up around her calves. Her accessories included white rectangle sunglasses, elegant pearls, and a small clutch. As for Rocky, his late-night look included jeans (though these ones weren’t bedazzled like the ones he wore on the red carpet), work under a beige trench coat, and a tie. He kept the details simple, matching his thick black boots to the sunglasses shielding his eyes from the paparazzi cameras.

While they brought him out and about plenty during their time in Paris, Baby Fenty stayed at home during his parent’s night out in NYC. Earlier on in her pregnancy, the soon-to-be mother of two shared a photo of her oldest on IG crying, joking that he was upset over being stuck at home during the Oscars while the sibling growing in her tummy got to sing on stage with her. Keep scrolling to see more photos of Rihanna’s custom Chrome Hearts after-party outfit.
