Rihanna Follows NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh's Instagram


What does federal NDP leader Jagmeet Singh have in common with Lebron James, Oprah and Big Bang Theory star Jim Parsons? He’s one of a relatively small number of people Rihanna is following on Instagram.

The pop superstar, who currently has 75.7 million Instagram followers, has only deemed a little more than 1,400 people worthy of her social media attention.

Singh, with around 283,000 followers, somehow got Rihanna’s attention and he’s now in an exclusive club that includes Canadians like Liberal leader Justin Trudeau, Céline Dion and PARTYNEXTDOOR.

A spokesperson for Singh told CTV News “it was great to be followed by” Rihanna and that he is a fan of her most recent album, Anti.

Rihanna mostly follows people and companies in the music and fashion worlds but her Instagram list includes U.S. democratic presidential candidates Beto O’Rourke and Kamala Harris.
