One huge Rihanna fan just found love advice in a hopeless place—namely, his Twitter DMs.
Twitter user @WaladShami just went through a rough breakup, and so he turned to his favorite musician Rihanna for some sage advice on how to move on. He told Buzzfeed, “It was my first relationship ever and they ended it with me in January, but it’s been really hard for a multitude of reasons. I reached out to Rihanna because she’s given me advice many times — she’s wise ‘n sh*t. Lol.”
“How did you get over your first heartbreak? I’ve been struggling,” he wrote in a direct message to the iconic singer.
And before you assume that this musical superstar doesn’t have time for a stranger’s problems, think again. The benevolent Bad Gal herself replied to @WaladShami’s DM with some very wise words of wisdom about losing love and finding it again. She wrote, “Just believe that the heartbreak was a gift in itself! Cry if you have to, but it won’t be forever! You will find love again, and it will be even more beautiful! In the meantime enjoy all that YOU are!!!!”
If you can’t trust Rihanna to help you through a heartbreak, who can you trust? After all, she and Drake remain ex goals to this day.
Of course, after @WaladShami shared a screenshot of his private messages with Ri in a tweet, he wasn’t the only one ready to “cry if you have to.” The singer’s loyal fan base was so deeply moved by both Rihanna’s advice to her fan and @WaladShami’s story that many reached out to say that they were also dealing with heartbreak, while others felt compelled to reiterate that Rihanna is a gift to this world.
