While you were off getting drunk and shooting bottle rockets at your nephew this past weekend, Rihanna was seen celebrating July 4th in Las Vegas in what we call very appropriate gear. Instead of wearing a normal shirt under her blazer, she was sporting two silver-sequined, star-shaped pasties, those lovely little areolae-covering attachments that allow burlesque dancers to look down on strippers.
How patriotic! In honor of Rihanna's outfit, we've gathered the best pasty moments in pop culture, and no, we're not talking about your pale ass. If a nipple sticker counts as decent clothing, then we hope hot women everywhere pick up the trend. Check out the Super Twosday approved moments below...
