Even though most celebrities find the paparazzi annoying, Barbadian singer Rihanna has admitted that she will choose them any day, over screaming fans.

The decision to do so was brought about after she completed a photo shoot at Highbar on West 48th Street. When she tried to leave the rooftop, she was told that the exit was impassable. “The exit was mobbed with paparazzi,” the New York Post quoted a source as saying. So to avoid the paparazzi, staffers at the hotel tried to sneak her out from the entrance below the bar, it was even worse, “with a mob of teens waiting for photos and autographs.” After seeing the crowd of eager fans, she chose to take the paparazzi route. — Agencies
