Madison Bailey received more than just a contract when she signed to Rihanna’s makeup brand Fenty Beauty — she got a gift from the superstar singer herself!
“My jaw was on the floor,” she told Jennifer Hudson on the March 2 episode about the moment she found out she would be the face of Fenty Beauty. “They were like, ‘Before we move any further, we want to know, are you a fan of the brand and are you a fan of Rihanna herself?’”
Madison was blown away that they even had to ask. “I was like… ‘Am I a fan? What do you mean?!’ I couldn’t believe it.”
“We were filming in Barbados for ‘Outer Banks’ this season — which might as well be called Rihanna Land — and we got there, and production called me and said I had flowers in the production office,” said Madison.
“It’s a ginormous bouquet of flowers, and I was stunned,” she recalled. “And the card was like, ‘Welcome to the team — Rihanna.’
“It’s a ‘pinch me’ moment for sure,” she said of the memorable gift.
Though Madison might be physically ready for anything the show throws at her, she still has a stunt double — who happened to be her own sister for the first two seasons!
Jennifer shared with Madison her own experience filming the action movie “Breathe” over the summer and being wowed by all the stunt performers. “To see the stunt doubles put in that work — I think they deserve so much credit for what they do,” said JHud.
