Turn Around singer Conor Maynard has recalled the moment when he bumped into superstar Rihanna on a plane from LA to London. Conor says that he was so starstruck by the singers presence that he could do nothing but stare at her.
Maynard told The Sun, “I was on a plane back from LA to London and I was just sitting in my seat and then all of a sudden there was a tap on the chair. I turned around and it was Rihanna. I just stared at her. She said, 'Hi. Congratulations on everything!' and then she wandered off.”
He added, “I tried to say something but I just kind of went, 'Er... um.. er...' and that's all that came out. It really wasn't that great as a reply. I just couldn't believe it. That's the most starstruck I have ever been.”
Conor admitted that he also loved working with Pharrell but meeting Rihanna was completely different, “Getting to work with Pharrell was exciting but I had 17 hours a day to get prepared to meet him, but this... it was just unexpected,” he added.
Conor Maynard is often referred to as the UK version of Justin Bieber and Conor has claimed that he is going to head to America next year in an attempt to crack the US market. Good luck Conor Maynard.
