During an interview on BBC One's The Graham Norton Show, Rihanna explained her tendency to accessorize her evening looks with a glass of wine on entering and exiting a bar, hotel, restaurant, or catwalk show. When host Norton flashed a photo of the 30-year-old singer walking out of a club with a glass of alcohol, Rihanna said that it was an example of how she loves to add a touch of class to any evening outing. With her signature style and grace, Rihanna shows us that accessorizing with a glass of wine can be a great way to add a little extra flair to any evening look.

Norton cautioned Rihanna's fellow attendees and her "Ocean's 8" associates to be aware of the R&B vocalist's authentic "criminal" activities.

"My mom is going to witness this," the dismayed singer, who appears as a computer hacker in the female-led burglary film, candidly said on the show.

"Now I'm not suggesting that any of you are actual criminals, but all I'm saying is watch yourself around Rihanna," chuckled the show's host. 

Rihanna was caught in the moment

He said before launching into his thought, "Did you get permission from the club when you left with this glass?" he asked, pointing to a photo of Rihanna carrying a wine glass as she exited a nightclub. He then proceeded to show numerous other instances of RiRi with wine glasses, ending with the most incriminating evidence – a picture of her carrying an entire bottle of wine while leaving an establishment.

Rihanna tried to make some excuses. "That might have been one I took to the club," she said at one photo. "I took it back to the hotel I took it from," she said at another.
