When Rihanna strode out onto the iHeartRadio Awards stage wearing what we swiftly identified as a "Crush On You"-era Lil' Kim inspired ensemble, the Internet went nuts. Twitter users and media outlets alike scrambled for meme-worthy comparisons for the singer's FW '15 Versace fit. From the hopelessly banal ("green M&Ms") to the head-scratchers (Jim Carrey), we rounded the options up. If it was green and pop-culture-y, it was summoned last night.
1. The Riddler
2. Oscar the Grouch
As Elle.com argued, "I mean, Oscar is from Sesame Street. One could argue it's not the hardest street to be from, but he lives in a trash can, so I am not going to judge his struggle. Also his name implies attitude, and that's what you need when you want someone to give you your money!"
3. The Green Lantern
4. The Grinch
Another Elle.com gem. "He stole Christmas. He's a hardened criminal. He will take your gifts and your happiness and not think twice about. You BETTER have his money."
That's not even the best Grinch-related burn Ri has received. That honor goes to the late Joan Rivers:
5. A furry leprechaun/fuzzy green muppet
"Rihanna Dressed Like A Furry Leprechaun," a NYMag headline declared. In the piece, it elaborated: "Last night, Rihanna descended from a helicopter onto the stage at the iHeartRadio Music Awards looking like a fuzzy green muppet."
6. A Green M&M

7. A debt collector
From MTV: "In case the thought of Rihanna demanding money wasn't already intimidating, tonight she looked like the flyest debt collector...dressed as the color of a million bucks."
