Fashion-beauty-music triple threat Rihanna may have a globally-spread, multimillion-member fandom of her own, but that doesn’t mean she exempts herself from having a few fangirl moments of her own.
Still celebrating her birthday, the bad gal dropped in to pipe up support for her NBA fav, Lebron James, during the Los Angeles Lakers home game matchup with the Houston Rockets on Thursday (Febuary 21). Geared up like the true ‘Bron fan she is, Riri sported her 23 Lakers jersey while cheering on her NBA G.O.A.T.
Contrary to other counterparts of the music circle who happen to be avid sports fans, Rih’s presence at any NBA game is always a blessing. It’s even been hilariously credited by fans as the ultimate reason behind each victory nabbed by whichever team has Rih’s support. And after Rih showed up and showed out at the Lakers-Rockets basketball showdown, the Lakers’ 111-106 win speaks volumes to their theory.
Riri turns around and boasts even more, showing off the clean Lakers jersey. “We won!” she cheers:
The championship team granted Rihanna her own custom-made Lakers jersey with “Bad Girl RiRi” in bold letters as a special birthday surprise:
Barbadian basketball bad gal does have a nice ring to it, huh?
