Rihanna, Michael Bolton Tweet Mutual Admiration

Sometimes, when no one's around, we like to relax to the soothing sounds of Michael Bolton's "Greatest Hits" and belt out the lyrics to "How Can We Be Lovers?" along with the soulful crooner.

And it seems that Rihanna's a fan too. Last week, RiRi tweeted a photo of Bolton, prompting the following exchange:

This man will forever be a legend in my eyes #MichealBolton instagr.am/p/TtKz94BM84/

“@rihanna: This man will forever be a legend in my eyes #MichealBolton instagr.am/p/TtKz94BM84/” I'm very grateful to read this!! Thank u, Mb

@rihanna Ur a truly powerful artist with a distinct voice that I love, and the rare kind who will have a great long career. Your fan, Mb

Well, that was adorable! We wonder if Rihanna and Chris Brown listened to any Bolton ballads when they spent New Year's in bed together.
