British fan Tris Castellano had the weekend every Rihanna Navy member wishes to have! Read his amazing story below:
I went to Rihanna’s concert in London and in the queue she DMed on Twitter to me saying “I want to meet you, baby.” I screamed so loud at 9am, everyone looked at me like “OMG he is crazy,” she said “tell me where you are,” so I did and someone came and gave me a pass. Then we run into the stadium and I got front row. As soon as she saw me in the crowd, she winked, blowed me a kiss and kept pointing at me throughout the whole show. During “We Found Love,” she came downstairs, hugged me, took my hand and looked back and smiled. Then near the end she looked at me and pointed backstage. Ben [her bodyguard] found me and took me backstage, I took my friend Charlie with me.
We met with Evan [Documentary Camera Operator], dancers and Rihanna’s baby bro, it was the greatest moment of my entire life, Robyn and me just sat chatting, laughing, hugging and crying together for ages, it was beautiful, just beyond words, she gave me her hoodie and signed for me: “To my baby Tris, love Robyn.” Cara Delevingne gave me a beautiful hug, lovely words and a kiss. Then I was invited back to her hotel the next morning. I had breakfast with Richard, the bodyguard, and Sarah, played xbox with the team, Geoff looked after me, spent 2 hours with papa Fenty, her daddy, as he wants me to call him now, just sitting at the bar and talking and laughing, had lunch, then they said “ohh, Tris, we have a surprise for you at reception,” as Robyn had to go and shower. And she was at reception waiting for me and she said “hey Tris baby”, come up, so we went up in lift just us and then I gave her a card and chocolates in the bedroom. The most magic 24 hours of my entire life.
Then on the way home, she posted1 of our 50 photos together and wrote the most amazing thing about me: “@triscastellano you are hands down the most incredibly beautiful human being I have EVER known!!! I love you from the bottom of my heart, and I always will!!! God has His hands on you, don’t ever forget that! Can’t wait to see you again, thank you for my card and chocolates!! #1Love.” I screamed again and cried, I haven’t cried so much in 24 hours, but happy tears.
