Priyanka Chopra’s special way of paying tribute to Bryant at Grammys
Los Angeles: Actress Priyanka Chopra paid tribute to the late basketball star Kobe Bryant in a special way at the Grammys.
The annual ceremony isn’t only focused on music, as news broke earlier on Sunday that Bryant and his daughter had passed away in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California.
Many took to the star-studded ceremony to pay their respects to the NBA legend, including Diplo, Billy Ray Cyrus, Lil Nas X, Common and Priyanka.
The Indian actress took a moment to style her decorated nails with the number “24” written on her index finger, reports eonline.com.
That number belonged to Bryant, who played for the Los Angeles Lakers for 20 years before he retired in 2016.
“RIP Mamba,” Priyanka shared on Instagram Story with a purple heart emoji, alongside an image of her tribute.
While attending the 2020 Grammys, she walked arm-in-arm with her husband and singer Nick Jonas.
She wore a custom Ralph & Russo design, which featured a plunging neckline and also included diamond-adorned pieces, fringe sleeves and intricate embroidery.
“This guy,” she shared on Instagram, with a photo of her and her beau striking a pose hours before making their way to the event.
The couple walked the red carpet with the Jonas Brothers and their spouses. Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner, Kevin and Danielle Jonas all arrived to the star-studded event together.
