Just imagine the scene: crossing the Channel, A$AP Rocky and Rihanna obviously wanted to play it like Mr. and Mrs. Everyone, even if it means going to the “barbershop. Of course, it didn’t take long for the place to be besieged by fans and the police forced to get involved.
A$AP Rocky and Rihanna at the barbershop
The scene spread like wildfire on social networks: passing through South London, A$AP Rocky and Rihanna had the idea of going to the local “barbershop” , while Lord Flacko offers a light refreshment, a few hours away from performing on stage as part of the Wireless Festival. Inevitably, the fans will not have been slow to show up en masse in front of the establishment, trying to take a selfie with the couple. Quickly, the first public appearance of the two artists since the birth of their son last May will have slipped, forcing the police to escort them.
Still, the privileged moment will have allowed a few lucky ones to exchange with RiRi, the time that his companion is pampered. The salon owner will explain to BBC 1Xtra that he first met Rocky, before he returned with Rihanna. He will offer Jamaican rum to the couple, and will confirm the both accessible and humble side of RiRi. The interpreter of Praise the Lord would have been delighted with the care on the spot.
