It’s time! Our first ”Fan of the Week” goes to Burak, the owner of Rihannas Rehab.
CE3y8ZRa TGqQ1M-G
1) Age

I am 21 years old.


2) Where do you live?

I moved to Cologne (Germany) when I started my studies in 2013.


3) Name?

My real name is Burak, but I am better known as ”RihannaDemos” or my fansite Rihannas-Rehab.com.


4) Number of times you’ve seen Rihanna live?

I saw Rihanna for the first time ever when she did her interview at Stefan Raab’s ”TV Total” on November 11 2009. I was 15 back then so I was not allowed to go to the big cities yet, but I begged my cousins and bought the tickets without having any approval at all yet. I attended my first concert in Cologne for the ”LOUD Tour” (2011) and saw her six more times since (another ”LOUD Tour”, all four ”Diamonds Tour” shows in Germany + ”777 Tour” in Berlin).


5) Are you attending ”ANTI WORLD TOUR”?

Yes, I am definitely attending Cologne on July 28 2016, but I am also planning to attend all other three shows in Germany. That will be spontaneous though as it is too close to my graduation. Paper first, fun second.

6) What made you wanna start Rihannas-Rehab.com?
Ever since I got my first computer in 2006 I started researching on everything Rihanna, because I literally loved her since Day 1. Me and my Bajan friend were stanning since ”Pon De Replay” played on national TV. In early 2008 I came to a point where I told myself that I have to share my knowledge about Rihanna, her career and person. So I started my fansite to educate the Navy. Rihannas-Rehab.com has a main goal: teach fans about Robyn Rihanna Fenty. That is why you will find no candids, no gossip, no bias, no shade, but the most detailed information you will find anywhere including unique content. The fansite is all love for me, hard work with a lot of time investment, but it is all worth it. Even though I never really met her. Oh and btw: in eight years of running the rehab all fans are entitled to check in, I never let anybody else touch a text – I write my own articles since ever I started.

7) What’s the future of RihannaDemos/Rihannas-Rehab.com?
Rihannas-Rehab.com is doing great already, however I want to get independent one day. I cannot, because my fansite is hosted, which means a host is paying my bills and puts their ads on my page in return. I never saw any penny in eight years of running Rihannnas-Rehab.com. I do not ask for any, but it hurts my ego that other people make use of me. Back when I was 14 and started I had no idea on how to do this on my own, so I applied for the host. The future though? I wanna get rid of anybody. I have no bloody idea on how to implement that though, as they won’t give out my domain explaining it by ”we do not sell our domains to our users”. I would never in my life re-start a fansite under a brandnew domain. Studying ”International Media Management” I made use of all my knowledge to make the fansite grow (it worked PERFECTLY), I cannot lose it. That is where depression starts.

As for RihannaDemos? My ass gon be hired by Rihanna soon. I will join FENTY CORP and take care of her Social Media Marketing. Knowing what the fans really want paired with my business knowledge will be fire. Rihanna, if you are reading this, I will hand in my application with my Bachelor Thesis.


8) If you could work with/for Rihanna one day, what would you wanna do?
”Could”? Serious? I just explained you that I will work for Rihanna. I am not even reaching for the stars, it is indeed becoming reality. I am coming for that wigs. As I told you though: I will be sitting in Los Angeles telling Evan to record more video material, force Mel to take more pictures for Instagram and create magic marketing campaigns to make my girl grow.

AWT (ANTI World Tour) has hit its fifth date: Cincinnati, Ohio and this time, Terah ”TJ” Stewart is the one to have his dream come true.

”Well the whole thing was surreal. We just wanted to meet/see her and never excepted what happened last night”

Terah went to the Cincinnati show with his friends dressed in Rihanna shirts and the energy during the entire concert was on top. With only three songs left on the setlist Rihanna starts singing FourFiveSeconds.

”I didn’t realise my friends were shouting and pointing at me trying to tell Rih I can sing”

Rihanna sees the fans shouting and pointing and decides to see for herself if it’s true. This is what happened:

Rihanna later that night followed Terah on Twitter. What a magical night!

It feels great to finally have started this blog and we’re both so excited for the amazing feedback we’re receiving. I’m sure some of you are wondering what we’ll be writing about though. As we’ve mentioned before, the purpose of this blog is to show the relationship between Rihanna and her fans. And what it’s like to be a fan, what goes through our minds etc. We’ll also be writing a lot about Rihanna’s on going ANTI World Tour. But if you feel like there’s something other than this that you really wanna read about, please let us know by (for example) leaving a comment below. It could be anything. Why is our fan base called Rihanna Navy? How many fans does Rihanna have? How do you get noticed by her? How is it that we have the time and energy to support a person this much? How much money do we actually spend on her? It really could be anything. Let us know and we’ll make sure to write about it. But for now, here are some categories we will be covering.

AWT special moments – We will look up special moments from each tour date. It could be Rih noticing fans in the audience, setlist changing, Rih meeting fans after or just a cute video of Rih performing.

Fan Encounter – As often as we can, we will post stories written by fans who have met Rihanna. How she is in person, how the meeting took place etc.

Fan of the Week – Every week we will interview someone who becomes Fan of the week. The interviews will be posted on Monday. If you are interested in being Fan of the Week, please contact Ebba on Twitter: @illestbaba

This all we got for now. More categories are coming soon. Stay tuned!

Taylor and Nick (who are both followed by Rihanna on Instagram and Twitter) have after months of waiting finally witnessed their first ANTI concert. And it was… AMAZING!

Taylor describes the concert as a masterpiece. From the elegance of the white stage to her beautiful outfits, her dancers/band, the whole production and setlist. He says we need to prepare ourselves and that he’s excited for the rest of us to experience everything ourselves. Other than witnessing a concert that blew him away, he also shared a little special moment with Rihanna during the concert.

Rihanna first noticed Taylor and Nick during her performance of Consideration. She gave them a quick glance/smile. The next time was during Same Ol’ Mistakes when she was looking right at them, waving and smiling (video below). And then, at the end, during Kiss It Better when she was waving goodbye to the audience, she came over to them and did some kind of hand gesture making it look like she wants to meet them outside. (also video below) A meeting between the two fans and Rih never took place but she later that night apologised for that and also thanked them both for showing up.

What a night, huh?

Va va voom! Look at Jesus gracing us with a Vogue cover. I swear she can do no wrong. From clothes to hair to makeup, this story is amazing. AMAHZIIING. And the interview! One of the best parts of a new era (new album) is getting interviews again. We’ve gotten a few in the past years too but mostly it’s just a writer giving us their take on her by putting together old quotes and re-telling her history. But this, this is a genuine conversation. And no one does that better than Rih. Here’s what she has to say on the ”rivalry” between her and Beyoncé:

“Here’s the deal. They just get so excited to feast on something that’s negative,” she said. “Something that’s competitive. Something that’s, you know, a rivalry. And that’s just not what I wake up to. Because I can only do me. And nobody else is going to be able to do that.”

She’s authentic and real which, with a good writer, comes through like magic. My favorite interview ever is the one Miranda July wrote for New York Times, published in October 2015. My uncle, once a convinced hater, read that piece and told me he ”gets it now!”, enabling a sweet reconciliation after previous fights about me stanning for Fenty.

But back to the April issue of U.S Vogue

Photographed by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, she wears Givenchy Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci, Marchesa, Saint Laurent by Hedi Slimane and Tom Ford. Speaking of fashion choices, she reveals that her greatest regret in life is not wearing bedazzled thong underneath the iconic CFDA dress.

“I just liked it better without the lines underneath. Could you imagine the CFDA dress with a bra? I would slice my throat. I already wanted to, for wearing a thong that wasn’t bedazzled. That’s the only regret I have in my life.” Wearing a thong that wasn’t bedazzled is your greatest regret in life? “To the CFDA Awards. Yes.”

And you know what? I totally understand. Not that the 230 000 Swarovski crystals didn’t sparkle enough, but a bedazzled thong would have been amazing.
