(SKY NEWS) — Pop star Rihanna has revealed she has packed her bags and moved to London – and fans are going hysterical on social media.

The Barbadian singer broke the news in an interview with the The New York Times Style Magazine which took place at Dark Sugars Cocoa House in Shoreditch, in east London.

One fan, @bethlenciaga. tweeted: “RIHANNA LIVES IN LONDON it is now my life mission to find her.”

The Umbrella singer, whose full name is Robyn Rihanna Fenty, recently launched an upmarket fashion label with Louis Vuitton owner LVMH in Paris, becoming the first black female to take the helm of a major fashion house.

She has reportedly moved to the English capital to be closer to her team working on her first collection for the label, Fenty, which includes ready-to-wear and accessories, such as shoes, sunglasses and jewellery.

The 31-year-old, who already has an established make-up line, Fenty Beauty, revealed what she loved most about living in London was “walking around the block” without being recognised.

“When I go walking, I try to keep it a little incognito,” she added.

Fans linked the revelation to an image the Ocean’s 8 star posted on Instagram earlier this month in which a Sainsbury’s bag for life could be seen in the background.

“If I bumped into Rihanna at the self checkout I would drop dead,” tweeted @ameliadimz.

“Still rattled that Rihanna lives in the UK and does her weekly shop in Sainsbury’s man what the hell,” wrote @EllisLandreth1.

“Hope I don’t meet any Rihanna lookalikes in my local Sainsbury’s because I will well and truly fangirl and probably scare the hell out of some innocent woman,” tweeted @itsezzie_.

@angelslice wrote: “Rihanna lives in London?? I didn’t know I was this close to the queen. I’ve breathed the same London air as her! oMg!”

“Wait what? Rihanna moved to London?” tweeted @ethbella.

Some were not surprised by the move and rained on the hysteria.

@ashcroftethics tweeted: “It’s not a surprise that Rihanna lives in London. Her first hit was about umbrellas,” while @Mr_Stevo87 wrote: “People getting excited about Rihanna moving to London like she will go Nandos with them.”

Rihanna’s fashion collection will make its debut at a pop-up shop in Paris on Friday and will be be available online from 29 May.

  1. Who cares? Who gives a flaming toss? Every bimbo and minbo wants to come to live in London. They are obsessed with the Big Orange. Why would this Bajan wannabee live a big country and come live on an overcrowded island? This woman needs her head examined. The US is big and offers much much more than this overcrowded island of Britain.
    It's no wonder you are seeing the rise of people like Nigel Farage. He wants to control immigration and who can blame him when you have people like Rihanna moving to England when she has a choice of living in a country like the US which is much more accommodating. People like her still have the colonial mindset of 'If It's not England then nothing is alright. It has to be in England.'

    What is Rihanna coming to do in England? She must be coming to show off and to adopt an English accent so she can show off to the people in America if she goes back there. I lived in England for many years and I have moved to mainland Europe as there's nothing left in England for me. Rihanna will soon like Madonna get tired of this colonial bastion called England and return back to where she hails from. This is nothing classy about England. This is a country where the people are full of envy and jealousy. They sneer at your success. The sooner this Bajan colonial realizes this the better it will be for her and her future. If she wanna make it much bigger than what she is right now then she ought to move away from these shores right now. Now that she has bragged about being in England the tabloids will soon find something about her. You wait. They will find a scandal to expose her. I will not feel sorry for her because of her unhealthy obsession with England. No way will I. You have been warned Bajan girl. Get out while you can is the best advice I can give to you.
