Rihanna must have told this story before, because when she repeated it on the Graham Norton show he’s the one who brought it up. It also sounds vaguely familiar to me. Apparently Rihanna went to get a bikini wax and asked for an older woman who only spoke Russian to service her. She ended up with a 25 year-old American woman, who recognized her and made her feel incredibly uncomfortable as she ripped off her pubic hair.
I went to this wax salon, and she recognized me before I took my clothes off. And I think she just couldn’t wait until we were alone so she could just ask for an autograph or something…
And then obviously I’m laying there and in pain, she just decided to bust out… Every time I get a wax I always specify the lady is old and speaks Russian or no English. And she was [a] 25 year-old American and she was basically like “I know who you are” [makes ripping motion] “You’re Rihanna aren’t you?”… Awkward, it was probably one of the most awkward moments of my entire life.

I’ve mentioned this before and I’ll say it again here, I’ve never gotten a professional bikini wax. There are lengths I will go to for beauty, but I’ll probably never go that far. The one time I tried this at home I got one strip off and vowed to never do it again I was in such agony.
Colin Farrel was on that show, though, which makes me imagine that I might get it done for his sake. Never say never, right?

Rihanna is shown at the AMAs. That dress isn’t one of her worst. She looks pretty good here but she probably really needed that bikini wax ahead of time despite her nude-colored underwear. Credit: WENN.com
