Rihanna’s Michael Bolton Crush Is A Much-Needed Reminder That, Chris Brown Aside, She Is The Best

Rihanna Thrilled By Michael Bolton Fan Tweet

Considering that all of our recent Rihanna posts have something to do with He Who Shall Not Be Named (JK! We mean Chris Brown), we were starting to worry that people were forgetting how excellent Rihanna is as an independent entity. Take her reaction to Michael Bolton‘s very sweet fan tweet, for instant. “@rihanna Ur a truly powerful artist with a distinct voice that I love, and the rare kind who will have a great long career. Your fan, Mb,” the singer tweeted at RiRi last Friday. Rihanna took until yesterday to comment on his baller status compliment, we’re assuming because she immediately started hyperventilating and lost consciousness. “My heart fell to the floor!!! ‪#1love‬,” she gushed about the tweet. “‪#biggestfan‬.” Guys, how adorable is that? The only people we know who love Michael Bolton this much are RiRi and our dad, and they are both the cutest!

Of course, Bolton was only replying to Rihanna’s initial praise for him, which, again, is so great. “This man will forever be a legend in my eyes ‪#MichealBolton‬,” Rihanna swooned last week while posting a picture of Bolton in a sweet leather blazer. Dear sweet heavenly lord, what if they did a duet together? Maybe they can do a cover of “How Can We Be Lovers If We Can’t Be Friends?” Oh wow, that works on so many different levels for Rihanna. We are geniuses! Ending 2012 on the highest of high notes! See you in 2013, ya’ll!
