As if there weren’t enough reasons to love Rihanna, here’s one example why she’s the coolest pop star in the world!
Celebrities have been known to look out for their loyal fans, sometimes even helping them out with their life problems, but this might just take the cake. Riri recently encouraged and helped support a fan – who wishes to remain anonymous – through the scary process of coming out of the closet as gay.
The fan explained that he has been nervous about admitting to his friends and family about his sexuality. According to a BuzzFeed report, the 28-year-old singer didn’t just respond by encouraging him to be himself and tell his loved ones the truth, she actually checked up on him from time to time.
When the brave young fan texted her via direct message on Twitter saying, “I just wanna live as the person I really am, not a liar”, Rihanna responded with an incredibly moving piece of advice.
“Baby it’s okay to be scared but it’s more important to be who you are. You don’t have a choice really! That’s not a decision to be made! You are who you are and as hard as it may seem, the best shit ever is freedom and peace within yourself! Your family may not understand, but luckily you live in a generation that does. And not to mention the community among us, we will hold you down boo!” she wrote.
Thanks to BuzzFeed, you can check out a bunch screenshots of their conversation below:
It’s pretty amazing to see the Bajan beauty, who is easily one of the busiest entertainers in showbiz, taking time out of her hectic schedule to talk about life-changing decisions with a Navy while releasing music videos, debuting a new clothing line, and performing on her sold-out “Anti” world tour.
BuzzFeed also reports that the fan will finally get to meet Riri at one of her upcoming shows in July. Lucky him ;)
