Rihanna visited the Lenox Square Macy’s last week to launch her new men’s fragrance, “Rogue Man,” and afterward celebrated at Prime sushi and steakhouse and Sprinkles Cupcakes and Ice Cream, also in the mall.
We’re told she picked up red velvet, caramel-apple, chocolate marshmallow and triple chocolate cupcakes, along with assorted cookies, at Sprinkles, then joined a group of about 16 friends at Prime. After a feast of filet with whipped potatoes and caramelized onions, Ri-Ri led a festive performance of “Happy Birthday” for a friend who was celebrating a birthday. (That may explain all the Sprinkles treats.)
The Prime staff was charmed by the gracious entertainer, who planted a peck on her waiter’s cheek as they were leaving.
