Fan Faints After Meeting Rick Ross at MMG Album Signing

Fan Faints

Rick Ross has a way with women. During a signing for Self Made, Vol. 3 earlier this week in New York, a female fan fainted (or at least pretended to pass out) while meeting the MMG mastermind.

“You so sexy,” she told Rozay while getting her CD signed at J&R Music.

Moments later, she hit the floor while Ross, Rockie Fresh, Meek Mill, and the rest of the crew stared. But she got right back up, blowing him a kiss and saying, “This ain’t fake. This is real.”

Watch the dramatic fan encounter as captured by MMZ.

Beyoncé brought “The Mrs. Carter Show” to Brazil during Rock in Rio 2013 on Friday. The Grammy-winning diva closed out the first day of the annual festival in Rio de Janeiro with a thrilling set and a couple surprises.

Following “Halo,” she led the crowd of 85,000 in a chant of “XO XO.”

“Hugs and kisses, ya’ll. I love you. Let me see you say, XO, XO,” said Bey while putting her arms in the shape of X and O.

Just last month, she shot a music video at Coney Island with director Terry Richardson for a new song reportedly called “XO.”

During her 90-minute set, she also performed MC Federado’s popular Brazilian dance “Ah Lelek Lek Lek.” “I want to do something special for ya’ll,” she told fans before busting out some funky moves with dance duo Les Twins.

The festival continues throughout the weekend with performances from Justin Timberlake, Alicia Keys, and Jessie J.
