Being a celebrity isn't just about fame and fortune — it's about a responsibility to fans, giving them inspiration in times of need. Not every celeb fully grasps that concept, but others are fully aware of it. And one #celebrity in particular who has embraced her part as a role model is #Rihanna.
Recently, a fan named Samer privately contacted Rihanna through Instagram. Samer was seeking advice on dealing with a broken heart, something he'd been struggling with for quite a long time. To his shock and delight, the singer responded later that day, and gave him some awesome piece of advice:
"Just believe that the heartbreak was a gift in itself! Cry if you have to, but it won't be forever! You will find love again, and it will be even more beautiful! In the meantime enjoy all that YOU are."
Samer was so excited by this awesome tip that he shared his messages with Rihanna on Twitter:
Speaking to BuzzFeed, Samer gave more insight into his situation, and revealed that the "Umbrella" singer had previously helped him deal with other issues:
"It was my first relationship ever and they ended it with me in January, but it's been really hard for a multitude of reasons. I reached out to Rihanna because she's given me advice many times — she's wise 'n s––t. Lol."
This continues Rihanna's streak of support and guidance she's offered her fans before.
This Isn't The First Time Rihanna Has Reached Out To A Fan
In 2016, another fan contacted the singer and opened up about his struggles and fear to come out as a gay man to his friends and family. #Rihanna responded with nothing but support, encouraging to accept who he was:
"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 s––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 here amongst us, we will hold you down boo!!"
Their communication wasn't a one-and-done situation. Rihanna kept in touch with the fan to see how he was doing in his journey, and she continued to offer advice and guidance. After awhile, the fan told her how much she had inspired him. The singer's response needs no explanation:
Please, stay awesome Rihanna!
