Who needs an umbrella? When Rihanna’s fans were soaked from pouring rain while waiting in line to see her, she gifted them something better than shelter or ponchos… The grammy-winning singer sent boxes of pizza and towels to her dedicated fans!
Rihanna, 28, gifted lucky fans the stuff we all dream about — pizza! Forget the fancy brand names and over-the-top gifts, RiRi knows the way to anyone’s heart. When concertgoers were soaked from a rain shower while waiting for her concert in England, she sent them 20 boxes of pizza and towels. See the gifts here!
On June 29 it poured in Manchester, England, where Rihanna was set to perform for a packed crowd, and fans who were waiting to see the “Work” singer got soaked. So what did Rihanna do upon the downpour?
“Rihanna just sent 20 boxes of pizza and few towels to dry off for fans that have been queuing all day for today’s show,” a tweet from an unofficial Twitter account for the singer’s Anti World Tour wrote. A picture attached to the tweet shows a fan, who is wearing a poncho, holding a wet box of pizza.

Wait for it — Several boxes were even signed by RiRi, the Manchester Evening News, reported! A Fan who was lucky enough to receive the unexpected gift while waiting at the outdoor Emirates Old Trafford Stadium told the paper, “We couldn’t believe it,” Daniel Reading, 24, said. “The pizza was only sent to our side of the queue. It was sent with a message from Rihanna, apologizing for the weather.”
Excited fans took to social media to give thanks for their special gifts from Barbadian songstress, along with photos from the rainy, yet amazing day. Check out the treats below!

Aside from her pizza-gifting, Rihanna’s serving up another treat for us that doesn’t involve food. She practically broke the internet on June 30 with the release of her new music video for “Sledgehammer”! The song featured in the video, which was shot entirely with IMAX cameras, is a ballad created specifically for the upcoming sci-fi flick Star Trek Beyond. Click here to see her video sensation.
