Despite her meteoric rise to fame, RiRi has always been loyal to her childhood BFF Mel - here's why we love their lifelong friendship.
Rihanna's life may have changed immeasurably since she burst onto our screens as a fresh-faced teen with her first him 'Pon De Replay', but one thing has remained constant in Ms Fenty's life - her best pal Melissa Forde.
The girls have been bests since they were kids, and are still as close as sisters now they are grown women - here's why we LOVE their friendship:
1. They've LITERALLY been friends forever
Mel and Rihanna first met as children and grew up together in Barbados and despite Rihanna's crazy lifestyle the pair are still as inseparable as ever.
2. Despite having a super controversial BFF, Mel has never spoken to the press
… but just IMAGINE the tales Mel could tell? She's never once broken her bestie's trust by talking to the media about their friendship and she always sticks up for Rih on social media too. Now that's the kind of mate every girl needs!
3. They're so close they even co-ordinate their outfits
These ladies have sported matching everything - from bikinis to Halloween costumes! The true mark of a forever friendship is being comfortable wearing the same outfit as your bestie and knowing you BOTH look smoking hot!
4. Mel's always got an invite to sit courtside with Rihanna
Because what makes a basketball game more fun? A good old goss with your mate, that's what!
