Rihanna can seriously not get any cooler. On top of everything else we love about her, the singer has started offering FREE meet and greets after her ‘Anti’ tour shows. And this is NOT a drill! As if you really needed another reason to be completely obsessed with Rihanna, right?
Rihanna, 28, has got to be one of the chillest, most down-to-earth superstars on the planet right now. After all, the singer’s been doing some casual meet and greets with her fans after she’s done performing as part of her “Anti” tour. And that’s a HUGE deal considering some stars charge thousands — cough, cough Justin Bieber, 22. Check out what other outrageous amounts your fave celebs require!
There’s really no catch — Rihanna literally offers free meet and greets outside her tour bus with fans after her show, and we have to say, we are totally on board with this brilliant move! Even better, this means we all ACTUALLY have a chance to one day meet Rihanna — eek!
How amazing is that? Especially considering quite a few other celebs charge BIG bucks for fans to queue up and get stuff signed. Let’s take a look at Justin Bieber, for example. The singer, who is currently on his “Purpose” World Tour, demands a whopping $2,000 for a VIP package, which is the only way to snag a selfie with the star, according to MusicTimes.com. How ridiculous is that? The second package Justin offers costs $925 per person and includes only a “group photo” with Bieber. NOT much better.

But while Justin’s meet and greet package sounds totally insane, you haven’t heard anything yet! For Demi Lovato and Nick Jonas‘ joint tour it’ll cost you a cool 10 grand for a VIP package — that doesn’t even include concert tickets, according to TMZ. Granted, for only $400 though you can get a signed poster and a professional photo with only Demi (Nick fans will have to pay a separate $400).
Interested in meeting Britney Spears during her Las Vegas residency? That’ll put you out about $2,500, according to The Hollywood Reporter. While Jennifer Lopez charges $1,600 and Beyonce ONLY offers group photos on RARE occasions to those who shell out $1,700 for front row seats. Pretty crazy, right? And after all that, most meet and greets are awkward AF anyways — Britney literally has a no touching rule.
But of course, a Rihanna meet and greet is like nothing you’ve ever experienced before. RiRi is totally more hands on, for one thing — happily high-fiving, cheek-kissing, and hugging anyone who asks for a picture. So sweet! Plus, there are ZERO awkward poses or stiff smiles. We just love that Rihanna genuinely seems more than happy to be meeting the people who’ve come out to see her. In short, we are obsessed!
How much do you love Rihanna’s free meet & greets, HollywoodLifers? Do you think it’s crazy that other celebs charge so much?
