Rihanna admits she ‘would rather go to Brixton’ for Jamaican food
Rihanna is not interested in visiting typical tourist attractions when she lives in London, as she much prefers spending time in Brixton.
The Work singer has lived in the capital for three years now after secretly leaving California to be closer to her company Fenty and then to her boyfriend Hassan Jameel, from whom she separated in January.
And while the Big Smoke features sights like the London Eye and Big Ben, RiRi just wants to hunt down the best Jamaican food in town.
In a new interview with Afua Hirsch for British Vogue, Rihanna said of her time in the capital: “I like it because they’re too bourgeois to say ** t about me. When I walk these places, I’m invisible, and nothing makes me feel better than being invisible.
When asked where she would go in London if visibility wasn’t an issue, RiRi replied, “I’d rather go to Brixton, but if I do now and try to get Jamaican food , it’s going to be an event, you know? ‘
She added: “So if I want to go out at night I’m going to hang out with people that I would never hang out with. And I’m just in my bubble. Which I really like about London.
Needless to say, fans jumped at the chance to offer Rihanna a delivery service, picking up her favorite Jamaican food on her behalf.
“Someone help me tell @rihanna that I will personally deliver all the Jamaican food she wants from Brixton to her doorstep for free,” one fan joked.
Believing RiRi to be a true Londoner at heart, another said: “If Rihanna was from London she would definitely be from Brixton so it makes sense.”
“Rihanna mentioning Brixton in her interview just proves South London is that girl,” agreed another.
Almost in tears, one RiRi fan praised: “RIHANNA TALKS ABOUT BRIXTON SOUTH LONDON IN HER VOUGE INTERVIEW. THAT’S WHY WE’RE HOLDING. ‘
It seems Brixton is the mysterious place Rihanna, 32, referred to in a previous interview.
Speaking to the New York Times in May, the Wild Thoughts singer revealed that there is a “cute little Jamaican market” near her home, although it is widely reported that RiRi lives in North London.
