Katy Perry & Rihanna Reveal How They Became Best Friends

Besties Katy Perry and Rihanna have revealed that they became “fast friends” after bonding over a purse in 2009.

Perry has for the first time explained how she met the “Umbrella” singer, who not only threw her a bachelorette party before she married Russell Brand but has also reportedly comforted her since their split on Dec. 30.

“[Rihanna] had this cool studded Valentino bag that had sparkly stuff on it,” Perry tells the May issue of Elle magazine.

Apparently, when Perry complimented her on the purse, the Barbadian pop star offered to send Perry the same one as a gift.

“I was like, ‘Oh great, here’s one of those tricks who talks fast friends but never lives up to it,'” said Perry, revealing that she was initially skeptical. But Rihanna followed through on her promise.

“Valentine’s Day came around, and I got a little Valentino bag in the mail from her,” says Perry. “I thought, ‘Wow this is a woman of her word.'”

Rihanna was surprised that her friend remembered that moment.

“She remembered that? That’s awesome!” said Rihanna. “I’ll tell you, you do not find people like her in this industry. She’s gorgeous, charming and so unedited it’s scary. That’s what intrigued me most when I first met her: she said it like she saw it. I trust people like that. I feel safe around people who tell me the [bleeped]-up [bleep], because I know they’ll always tell me the truth.”
