What is it about washed up singer Rihanna that makes her fans lose their minds? Rihanna isn't even an accomplished singer. So why are her crazy fans sleeping on a filthy NYC sidewalk just to make sure they are first in line to meet her at Macy's today?
On Thursday, Rihanna announced via her Twitter account that she was making an appearance at Macy's on Fulton Street on Monday to hawk her latest fragrance.
Within an hour of her announcement, her fans began setting up lawn chairs and making themselves comfortable in front of the store.
Rihanna tweeted a photo of her hapless fans queuing up in the street three days before the planned meet and greet.
In the caption, she wrote:
"It's Friday !!!! That means I'll be at @Macys downtown Brooklyn in 3 days!!!! That didn't stop the NAVY from getting a head start to the front of the line at 6am today!!! Lol!! Yall are too trill!! I can't wait to see you on MONDAY!! @perfumesbyriri #RiRi #RiRibyRihanna"
The first 400 fans who purchase her fragrance will get a chance to meet Rihanna and take a photo with her.
Meanwhile, RiRi and her rumored lover Melissa Forde skipped the MTV Video Music Awards to spend quality time with each other. The 2 lovebirds were spotted holding hands in the meatpacking district of NYC last night.
