We got more pictures of Patsy and Nabel meeting Rihanna yesterday in London. She was spotted on a dinner with her friends together with Akon and LA Reid at Cipriani Restaurant.
Inside Nokia Music: Being an Alt-Rock child of the 90’s, any scenester-minded individual may have considered covering Rihanna through her Rated R album launch & world tour a bit laborious. But having become aware of it, then eradicating any scene adoption for the ridiculously misconceived need for a sense of belonging during my earlier years, I already had an inclination towards the odd Rihanna tune here and there. Certainly enough admiration to warrant me being a nervous wreck during the interview I did with her back in November ‘09.

“I got to the hotel so early, saw her cars drive forth and back, got so excited and then NOTHING! This was the story for TWELVE HOURS! Sat in the cold, shaking, giving up hope! I mean it’s her day off, she might not even leave, right?
Sooo it’s about 9pm, I see her guard and I ask him if he can please take my ‘Rated R’ CD to get signed, because I love her so much and he replies ‘I’ll see what I can do’. Literally, 5 minutes later her car pulls up! We are all DYING, shaking, freaking out! It was about 2-3 minutes before Ri came out, but it felt like YEARS! I saw her and she looked so fucking awesome! Gangster hat and chain on! I walked over to her first and I didn’t know what to do, I was so shocked! I was trying to give my camera to my friend and also trying to walk to Ri! And then she started laughing (that cute little laugh that she has)! So she pulled me in and did a gangster pose with her hat! She also posed for my other 2 friends! She then signed our stuff, and I told her her show was fucking amazing and she was like ‘thanks!’ I asked her why she cut ‘Photographs’ from her tour as I LOVED it and it was one of my faves, she replied ‘REALLY? Well we just tweak the show from time to time, some things get cut’. We were thanking her and telling her we loved her and saying bye, and then a paparazzi came and asked her if he could take photos of her, and she goes ‘yeah but group photos only’, and pulled us all in and told us to hold our Ri stuff up! Then she drove off and waved to us!
12 hours waiting and it was worth it! That woman is the fucking bomb, and she was so much nicer than the first time I met her!”

“Went to see Rihanna the other night! Really enjoyed myself, she put on an awesome show!”

PunchBowlBlog has some inside pictures from Rihanna’s afterparty in London.
The concert was completely sold out and Rihanna put on a strong, solid show. She held her after party at the exclusive Merah nightclub in central London with a celeb guestlist that included supermodel, Jourdan Dunn, Tinie Tempah, Alesha Dixon, The Sugababes’ newest member, Jade Ewen and her boyfriend, Eastenders’ actor Ricky Norwood. The music on the night was provided by two of the UK’s finest DJ’s, Manny Norte & DJ Semtex.
Once Rihanna arrived at the club, her VIP section was swamped by fans prompting the Bajan star to exit shortly after.
