Why is everyone googling their birthday? Where did the Rihanna birthday meme start?

If you're sat wondering why people are googling Rihanna and their birthday, the first version of the meme came from Twitter user, @ChipdNudePolish. She posed the simple challenge to her followers: "Google Rihanna and your birthday to see which outfit you get." She attached a picture of her own result, Rihanna at the 2016 BRIT Awards on February 25th, in a strappy purple fringe dress. Then the Twitter world latched on and went WILD.

Her tweet has nearly 3,000 retweets, and #RihannaBirthdayOutfit has thousands of results.

Other than being a few minutes of fun, and realising that Rihanna literally has an outfit for every single day of the year – that's all this meme really is. Whether your birthday is January, February, March, April, May, June, July, August, September, October, November or December – Ri will have an outfit for you!!! You can't deny it, you've probably done it yourself or are going to now.
