Rihanna’s fans are known as the “Rihanna Navy.” They have a unique understanding of how important a strong fan base is to a star. They get a lot of perks when their favorite artist has them in her corner, like sock collaborations, a makeup line and sold-out shows.
They also have a unique appreciation for a strong, unified voice. As a result, they often go out of their way to help other people in need.
The Rihanna Navy can be found all over social media, but it’s not just their tweets and Instagram comments that make them stand out from other fan bases. Their steadfast support is what drives the star to keep pushing boundaries and taking risks, no matter how big or small.
It’s that dedication to her fans that has made Rihanna one of the most successful musicians of all time. She’s been able to produce four diverse albums in just over a decade, including Anti, which featured the singles "Needed Me" and "Lift Me Up."
Ahead of her Super Bowl halftime show performance this Sunday (Feb. 12), the Barbados-born singer took to Twitter to give her followers a little insight into what they can expect from her performance. The tweet included an audio clip of Rihanna describing her fanbase as "unapologetic" while asking where the new music is coming from.
The singer’s performance at the Super Bowl is sure to be one of the most watched musical performances of the year, so it’s no surprise that her fans are already speculating about what special effects she might include in her performance. It would be the perfect time to announce an upcoming project, a new album or even a tour.
