Rihanna Shows off Her Wild Side, Cuddles a Baby Lion: Photos


Rihanna may be wild, but it looks like she met her match in some (truly) wild animals!

Before performing in South Africa on Sunday, the singer visited a local animal sanctuary where she fed a giraffe and cuddled with a lion cub, and she shared the cute photos on her Instagram.

Camouflage boots and all, the “Pour It Up” singer looked fierce … literally … as she bonded with the wildlife.

Later that night, Rihanna performed at FNB Stadium in Johannesburg for 90,000 fans. According to her Instagram, the “Diamonds” singer is the youngest artist to ever sell out the stadium.

The Diamonds tour continues in South Africa on October 16 in Cape Town and will end in November when Rihanna performs in New Orleans.
