Every writer needs inspiration, and while Mindy Kaling's Twitter account might suggest she's never without quips, she shared with the Ministry one of her biggest muses: Rihanna.
As co-creator of Fox's "The Mindy Project," the actress and author said that RiRi often gets staff juices flowing because of her broad appeal.
"Rihanna is a big favorite," Kaling said on Saturday at West Hollywood's Mondrian hotel, where a reception was held ahead of the show's fall premiere, "whatever the reason the guys on my staff can get behind it. They think she's just super hot and intimidating. I can listen ... and feel inspired by it because everyone is into it."
While we love the idea of a Rihanna-exclusive playlist blaring throughout a studio production office, Kaling shared her specific jam to rally the troops.
