Lena Dunham praises Rihanna
Lena Dunham felt she was “in the presence of otherworldly greatness” when she attended Rihanna’s ANTI tour this week.
The ‘Girls’ star thoroughly enjoyed attending the ‘Diamonds’ hitmaker’s tour, describing it as the most “profoundly psychosexual hour and a half” of her life.
Writing in this week’s Lenny Letter, she shared: “Holy s**t I went to Rihanna’s ANTI tour and it’s the most profoundly psychosexual hour and a half I have ever enjoyed. From the moment she appeared in celestial white to moan ‘Stay’ til her Helmet Newton tinged grindathon finale of ‘Kiss It Better’ I knew I was in the presence of otherworldly greatness. Add to that Voguers in sequined dragon suits and a wall of cascading party foam and I guess I know what doing acid is like.
“I also love how happy she seems – every time she finishes a song she beams like “yeah, I did good.” Rihanna’s stage show is a ball of passion and contradiction that reminds me I can have a stomach ache AND vote for president AND have a p****y made of diamonds. Yup. (sic)”
Meanwhile, the 29-year-old actress and writer has had a tough time of it recently after she was forced to undergo emergency surgery for an “ovarian cyst rupture”.
Taking to Instagram at the time, she wrote: “Thank you so much for the love. I’m safely out of the hospital and recuperating. Your well wishes mean the world. I can’t wait to be up and active, and to show my thanks … always your girl, Lena (sic)”
