Trevor Noah has had a lot to say about Rihanna over the past few years, and we’re all dying to know what was on his mind after he had a picture taken with the singer this week
Trevor Noah was on the guest list as Rihanna held the 2018 edition of her annual Diamond Ball. Straight after the New York Fashion Week, some of the biggest stars in the world joined Rihanna’s guest list for the spectacular event that aims to support her Clara Lionel Foundation.
Guests included the likes of Issa Rae, Donald Glover, Normani Kordei, Teyana Taylor and more of Hollywood’s biggest names. Our favourite host of The Daily Show made his way to the party for the second year in a row, after being pictured alongside Jay Z during last year’s Diamond Ball.
Last year, Noah admitted to being starstruck after being surrounded by so many “power players” but this time around, the comedian looked to hold his composure; even going as far as getting a picture with the literal belle of the ball: Riri herself:

It is no secret that Trevor Noah is one of Rihanna’s biggest admirers
Along with the many times the comedian has joked about her (or about having a crush on her), he hilariously pointed out that the two shared a birthday in 2017. The funnyman invited her to host a joint birthday party and, although she didn’t respond at the time, hopefully an invite to her ball will suffice.
Thank you so much for the birthday wishes everybody. 🎉🎉🎉
Oh and ps @rihanna let me know if we’re still throwing that joint party!

If we can’t get a joint birthday party, it looks like many fans would settle for seeing Trevor Noah interviewing the Barbadian beauty on The Daily Show.

Some fans are a little more ambitious…
