Rihanna Does Her Best Olivia Pope at the White House

Plus a little C.J. Cregg.

Here is one way Rihanna IS just like you: She's Scandal-obsessed too. Today, for reasons that have not yet been made clear, Rihanna spent the day at the White House, where she took the chance to recreate all her moments from Shonda Rhimes' hit show.

Here she is outside the White House, pleading for Cyrus to let her in.

Channeling her best Olivia Pope...

And her best press secretary...

Rihanna's technically shouting out Abby, but we think she's also giving a nod to our favorite fictional White House press secretary, The West Wing's C.J. Cregg.
