Leigh-Anne bumps into Ri-Ri at River Island event with Jade Thirlwall
The Wings singer told Twitter fans that she and bandmate Jade Thirlwall, 20, were unable to string a sentence together after being introduced to Ri-Ri at her River Island fashion launch after party in London.
‘Omgosh mixers tonight I met one of my idols.. Rihanna.. Properly lol. Me and Jade couldn’t even talk! Lol #StarStruck x leigh,’ Leigh-Anne posted from the girls’ join account.
It seems the former X Factor contestant was equally tongue-tied after running into Rihanna backstage on the show in 2011.
‘She walked past, did a double take and said, “Your hair is awesome”,’ Leigh-Anne told The Mirror.
‘I just froze. I couldn’t believe she noticed me.’
