As a Lakers fan, it makes sense that one of those things on her post-world tour bucket list was a Los Angeles basketball game.

Rihanna was spotted courtside at the Staples Center for the November 22 Los Angeles Lakers game against the Golden State Warriors. Rihanna and her BFF, Melissa Forde, cheered for their favorite team.

Born on April 11, 1986, Melissa Forde grew up in Barbados with Rihanna and they have been friends since their childhood. She is Rihanna’s unofficial Instagram photographer and her account @mdollas11 has almost 1 million followers on Instagram.

While Melissa sported a fitted dress and a casual tartan jacket, RiRi dressed down in a loose printed tee with a pair of skinny jeans and a bucket hat that covered her short hair and bangs.

She added some edge to her look with a few bangles and a necklace.

The “We Found Love” songstress, who was featured on Eminem’s latest single, “The Monster,” finished her outfit with a pair of tough-chic sandals by Olcay Gulsen.
