Fact: The Victoria’s Secret models have a girl crush on Rihanna and they aren’t afraid to admit it!
While we knew that Candice and Karlie had a bad case of Bieber fever before the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, it turns out that Rihanna is the name on all of the models’ lips these days. Aside from giving us the scoop on this year’s costumes and how they prepared for the sexiest night of the year, more than a few pretty ladies confessed to being just a little obsessed with the good girl gone bad, and we can’t say we blame them. Like most of us, the models admitted to having more than a few of the chart topper’s hits on their iPods, never mind a few envy inducing Twitpics taken with Rihanna from backstage (as if Joan and Cara posing together wasn’t enough already).
“I do have a celebrity crush on her,” said Lais Riberio. “Rihanna is in my iPod so like when I work out that’s my jam! I like all of her songs.”
“I love her! I listen to her on the plane, at the gym, everywhere,” added Toni Garrn. ”I stayed here two hours last night to watch her rehearse. I was the only model left, but because I’m on stage with her today I said if you don’t want me to faint when I see her for the first time on stage I’m going to need to see her first. It’s like the best day of my life today to be able to walk with her.”
Adriana Lima even admitted that watching the performer onstage was one of her favorite moments from the entire show! “Rihanna rocked it,” said the Angel. “Oh my God she was unbelievable! I couldn’t wait to see her, she really knows how to rock the runway. She was definitely very confident and extremely sexy, and I loved all of the songs!”
Unlike the season’s latest “it-bag” though, this is one obsession that we don’t expect to fall off at the wayside anytime soon. Rihanna’s highly-anticipated new album, Unapologetic, officially drops today, and with the VS Fashion Show song “Phresh Out the Runway” included on the track list, something tells us that we won’t be the only ones glued to our iPods this week. We’ll see you ladies at the 777 tour!
