There’s a lot to love about Rihanna: model and muse Slick Woods says she reminds her of her mother, while Drake famously claimed to have been in love with her since age 22 (and still can’t seem to stop referencing her). But one of Rih’s most lovable qualities is that she’s an unabashed boss, which she proved on Friday with a “bitch better have my luggage” move on behalf of longtime makeup artist and Fenty Beauty ambassador Priscilla Ono.

When Ono posted on Instagram that KLM Airlines had lost both pieces of luggage containing her makeup kits—or as she and any other makeup artist would refer to them, her “entire work life”—Rihanna simply commented “Got you sis” before swooping in to the rescue.

In a subsequent comment, Rih used her international influence to light a fire under the airline’s luggage team, politely yet firmly explaining that their incompetence was not only inconveniencing Ono, but Rihanna herself, as Ono was due to work on a “big production” the following day.

Now, we have no idea if this was really true, or if @badgalriri was simply using her powers for good. What we do know is that Ono got her luggage back via “special delivery” almost immediately, updating her post to say: “Still don’t know what exactly happened, all I know is as soon [as] you all had my back, I got a message saying the bags were on their way. I’m so grateful for friends like you!”

Guess it really does pay to stand under Rihanna’s umbrella.
