NME Festival blog: Rihanna was Arsenal’s “lucky charm” for their win against Everton last night

The singer watched the Gunners take victory at Emirates Stadium last night (February 3).

Rihanna was the talk of the town last night (February 3) as she attended the Arsenal-Everton match at London’s Emirates Stadium.

The singer watched the Gunners take a 5-1 victory, enjoying a tour of the stadium, and meeting players after the match.

She was there with her brother Rorrey.

The singer posed with player Mesut Özil after the game, and he posted the picture on Twitter with the caption: “Still unbeaten with Riri”, calling her the team’s “lucky charm”.

Football correspondent James Olley reported that Rihanna was “causing a bit of a stir in the tunnel area”, and spent time in the players’ lounge after her tour.

She also posed with left-back Sead Kolašinac, who posted the pic on Twitter, saying: “Great team effort and important win. Thanks for your support Rihanna!”

Player Shkodran Mustafi posted a Twitter pic with the singer, with the caption: “The result we needed today! Thanks for crossing your fingers Rihanna, that has always turned out really well #Brazil2014”.

The centre-back made reference to the time Rihanna backed Germany in their victorious 2014 World Cup Final, against Argentina.

A very optimistic fan even suggested the Gunners keep her on for the Europa League final in May, but he may be jumping the gun just a little bit.

Meanwhile, Rihanna performed at the 2018 Grammy Awards last Sunday (January 28) with DJ Khaled and Bryson Tiller.

The singer – who is an ambassador for the Global Partnership for Education – has recently been asking world leaders, including Theresa May to step up when it comes to prioritising girl’s education.

Rihanna previously met with Macron and French First Lady Brigitte Macron to discuss global education last July. She later tweeted, “Thank you Mr. President @EmmanuelMacron and Madame First Lady for the incredible meeting and passion for global and girls education!”
