Andrew Lloyd Webber has claimed he discovered Rihanna
The 68-year-old said he spotted her 12 years ago.
Andrew Lloyd-Webber, British composer and songwriter has confessed to discovering Rihanna.
According to METRO, Andrew made an appearance on Good Morning Britain where he spoke about his new musical School of Rock but also his meeting with Rihanna a few years back.
"I saw her. She was singing with a sort of karaoke band at a hotel I was staying at, Sandy Lane in Barbados. She was singing there – this must have been about 12 years ago."
"I remember talking to Nigel Wright, who’s sort of my music guy, and we were having a drink and we thought: she’s very, very good."
A little bit shockingly, Andrew compared the Baijan singer to bringing back a picture from a foreign country.
"If we bring her back, it’d be like when you see a picture when you’re away and you take it home and you think, why did I buy that?"
"I thought I might get her home and wonder what to do with her."
People on Twitter weren't impressed with Andrew's comments about Rihanna.
