She doesn’t follow unofficial Canadian ambassador Drake anymore, but Rihanna now follows Canadian federal party leaders on Instagram.
While it might not count as an explicit political endorsement, @badgalriri followed New Democrat leader Jagmeet Singh on Instagram Thursday.

The Rihanna follow is apparently a big deal, even to celebrities. The pop singer has made headlines simply by unfollowing other artists like Drake and Cardi B. Despite being followed by tens of millions of Instagram users, Rihanna keeps her own follow list relatively short at just over 1,000 people. As of Thursday evening VICE confirmed she was already following Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.*
