B. Simone is, per her own words, “His Midnight Snack.” Well, “Next time.” The 29-year-old rapper, author, and “Wild ‘N Out” star posted blazing-hot photos from her upscale kitchen on Saturday night as she earned herself a little cash – Braelyn holds an ambassador status with 32-year-old singer Rihanna’s SavagexFenty lingerie line. While recent updates from the “Baby Girl: Manifest Your Life” author have been all about the bikinis and high-end yachts, it was back to undies last night as the star honored her promo role for RiRi’s brand.
Check out the photos and reactions below, plus B. Simone’s headline-making plagiarism storm.
Last night’s photo is below. The above one dates back to earlier this month when Simone took a luxury Miami vacation that saw her plonked on yachts, stripped down to stylish swimwear on beaches, and shouting out the Fashion Nova brand she also fronts.
These photos were loungey, but lacy. Simone was barefoot in her kitchen and by her chrome-plated fridge, seen flaunting the 15 pounds she’s dropped in a candy-pink and cupped lingerie set with a revealing neckline, plus a low-slung pair of white sweatpants. Messy hair and a sexy gaze completed the look. More below.
Simone, known for swooping into her own comments section, did just this. Her initial caption had addressed her 5.1 million followers, reading: “His midnight snack ❤️ Next time ? #SavageXAmbassador @savagexfenty.”
Simone then snagged herself over 300 likes for revealing more as she wrote: “I lost 15lbs i wanna loose [sic] 15 more ?.”
Fans didn’t seem to feel Simone was the caption-mentioned snack – for her followers, this girl is the whole damn meal: “Yes the f-ck ma’am snack? Naahhhh thassa meal,” one user wrote. Scroll for how much she might have gotten paid for the post.
SavagexFenty ambassadors tend not to #ad their posts. The promotional agenda appears clear via the partner status, with it largely accepted that the influencer accepts some form of payment for their service. Experts over at Vox have thrown out estimated figures.
“Influencers with up to 1 million followers can get $10,000 [per post], depending on the platform, and 1 million followers and up, you’re getting into territory where they can charge $100,000. Some can even get $250,000 for a post!” This is a girl whose books sell 1,000 copies an hour, though. More below.
Simone, who made headlines this year as Forbes confirmed her earning $1 million in just 50 days, wound up topping Twitter trends in June for allegations that her book had been plagiarized, with content swiped from bloggers and sites including Pinterest. The B. Simone Beauty founder was initially backed by rapper Meek Mill on Twitter, then taking things into her own hands.
A lengthy video saw Simone address the situation, apologizing, but also blaming things on an “outsourced team” she stated having little control over. Copies have since been pulled until the mess is sorted, per Simone.
