Rihanna Makes History in Paris


Rihanna’s Diamonds World Tour made a stop in Paris, France over the weekend. There, the 25-year old pop star reportedly made history, becoming the youngest artist ever to sell out the 80,000 seat Stade De France.

Rihanna took to Instagram to thank her fans, adding news that she is also only the third black person in history to sell out the stadium.

Tina Turner did so back in 2000 during her sold out ‘Twenty Four Seven Tour.’ While Prince broke records of his own during his ‘Welcome 2 America Euro 2011 Tour.’

I couldn’t do this alone, I needed 80’000 people to join me!!! And you did, so thank you for being the fans of a lifetime, we’re the ones they’re gonna talk about decades from now! You are the phanz that other faves could only dream to have!! I am blessed and honored and proud and humbled to be represented by you and to represent for you!!!! It’s a Navi thing!! #phuckyophanz #phuckyofav #thisiswhatrealstadiumstatusbelookinglikebitch #nobasiczone #THANKYOU #NavyRDie.,” Rihanna wrote to fans after her momentous gig.

The performance came as a welcome relief to the singer who was recently slammed by Holland fans who complained of the notorious party girl arriving late for a performance and putting on a lackluster show.

Rihanna’s tour resumes tonight in the U.K. where she will play the 74,500 seat Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.
