Rihanna enchants JLS star at V Festival
Pop devotees with Rihanna tickets are not the only ones in love with the singer, with Aston Merrygold of JLS fame admitting that he was bowled over by the star at the V Festival.
Merrygold, who attended the event with bandmate Marvin Humes, told the Sun that he was eager to get a good spot near the stage to watch the California King Bed hitmaker performing.
His fellow JLS member was not quite so vocal about his interest in watching Rihanna, as he was at the festival with girlfriend Rochelle Wiseman of the Saturdays.
Speaking about his soft spot for Rihanna, Merrygold said: "She's incredible. I got as close to the stage as possible for the best view."
The Barbadian superstar is playing live dates all over the world this year to support her latest album Loud.
She will be returning to the UK in the autumn to play venues including the O2, the MEN Arena and Newcastle's Metro Radio Arena.
