OMG! As if there aren’t enough reasons to already love Rihanna, here’s one of the best examples of why she is the coolest celeb in the world! She helped a gay fan come out of the closet, and you’ve got to see her inspirational messages.
Goddess! Rihanna, 28, officially wins the most awesome celebrity that ever existed as she’s helped a brave young fan admit to his friends that he’s gay. She talked him through the whole process, responded to his fears and gave him huge support towards making the bold move. And the only reason we even know about her amazing act of kindness is the fan himself has let the world know how much she helped him!
RiRi responded after the fan direct messaged her on Twitter and said,”I just wanna live as the person I really am, not a liar,” and be prepared for her MIND BLOWINGLY INCREDIBLE response:
“Baby it’s okay to be scared but it’s more important to be who you are. You don’t have a choice really! That’s not a decision to be made! You are who you are and as hard as it may seem, the best sh*t ever is freedom and peace within yourself! Your family may not understand, but luckily you live in a generation that does. And not to mention the community among us, we will hold you down boo!” Oh my God….she is the best ever at giving inspiration to her fans!
But her amazing piece of advice didn’t stop with that one message. She actually kept in touch with her fan – who wishes to remain anonymous – to check in on his progress. He wrote to her, “I finally came out to my second close friend over here :) I’m feeling so good Rih, thanks to you” and she asked him how the friend reacted and he told her, “she was happy for me,” and got back a reassuring “I’m glad,” from the Work singer.

According to Buzzfeed, who first published the story, the fan turned to RiRi about their sexuality in March because they felt like they didn’t have anyone else to talk to who they thought might understand. She’s been incredibly supportive of him ever since.
“Slowly letting everyone know I’m gay thanks to you and I’ve never felt so comfortable :) stanning for you is the best thing I’ve ever done. I’m thankful, please never forget” he DM’ed her, and within two minutes she responded back, “How could I ever forget? I am so proud of you. I’m glad to see you finally being happy with yourself. Being who you are is the only way.” Awww, how can you not LOVE Rihanna?!
