Rihanna‘s mini-me has set the Internet on fire and now she hopes her newfound fame opens the door to work with RiRi.
We spoke with Ala’a‘s mom, Bria, who tells us her 7-year-old daughter would love to work with the Fenty Beauty founder if the opportunity arises.
Ala’a caused chaos online when her photo went viral with Rihanna’s Navy pointing out that she looks identical to the star.
Fans and celebrities alike lost their minds over the uncanny duo, even Rihanna couldn’t believe the comparison.
Posting Ala’a’s pic on her social media on Tuesday, RiRi captioned the snap, “almost drop my phone. how?”
Snoop Dogg, Priyanka Chopra and Lena Waithe immediately commented on the singer’s post and were astonished at her doppelgänger.
Even Miss Tyra Banks shared Ala’a’s photo, asking fans who the adorable little girl is.
“S.O.S. PLEASE SOMEONE HELP ME identify @badgalriri’s #freshfierceface mini-me!” wrote the smize queen.
Bria tells The Blast, Ala’a wants to be a model and is a fan of Rihanna’s music.
We’re told the Virginia native constantly gets stopped and told she looks like the famous singer, but Mom doesn’t notice “because she’s my child.”
“I see her everyday. It’s only when people mention it,” Bria says. “I’m like whoa she does.”
They hope all the celebrity attention will help Ala’a reach her goal to be in front of the camera.
Bria tells us that Ala’a doesn’t realize what all the hype is about, but she thinks Rihanna’s really pretty.
At the time of this post, both Rihanna and Tyra have yet to reach out to the young super star, but Mom and Ala’a are hopeful.
With looks like these, it seems this is just the beginning for Ala’a’s career!
