‘Ya Eyes Done Scared Me’: Monica’s ‘Red Cup Challenge’ Derails After Fans Roast Her Facial Expressions

R&B crooner Monica is the latest celebrity to show off her flexibility skills on social media.

The “Angel of Mine” singer participated in the “Red Cup Challenge” this week, which consists of people balancing a red plastic cup on their foreheads, moving from a standing position to a sitting one all while balancing the cup, then curling their legs over their head to grasp the cup.

Monica, of course, nailed the challenge, but her intense focus had folks in stitches.

She took to her Instagram page on Tuesday, Oct. 13, and shared a video of herself completing the challenge in her living room. As the 39-year-old diva made her way to the floor, balancing the cup on her forehead, she stared intensely at the cup with her eyes wide open and her arms flailing. She remained in the position until she completed the challenge.

“I thought a 20 year old said sum 😂,” the songstress wrote. “It’s almost my birthday #Big40 All I can tell you is do what’s best for YOU throughout YOUR journey ! Your gifts will make room for you always!!! PS Auntie was a gymnast 🤸🏽‍♀️lmaooooo #RedCupChallenge”
