Rihanna Sneaks Past Heavy Security To Catch JAY-Z’s V Fest Set

Rihanna Makes It Through Heavy Security Presence To Catch Jay Z's V Fest Set From Backstage featureRihanna snuck past the prying eyes of fans to catch JAY-Z’s set at Virgin V Fest in England over the weekend. The singer shared video from backstage during Jay’s set, clearly loving every minute of her mentor’s performance to an eager crowd. Rihanna can even be heard singing along with some of Jay’s tracks.

News of Rihanna hitting up the fest only broke after she posted the vids of the Brooklyn rapper online. Despite her high profile, Rihanna apparently was able to sneak into the festival completely unnoticed until fans realized she was backstage watching the set.

That might’ve been thanks to the above-average security presence at the festival. Police were carrying guns, a rarity for U.K. law enforcement. According to a report Monday, 41 people were arrested during the two-day event.

The increased security presence could be a response to recents events like Manchester and Charlottesville.

Check out Rihanna’s view from the show below.
