TOKYO, Japan — Carolina Panthers superfans come in all forms, including award-winning pop superstars like Rihanna.

Although Rihanna is indeed rocking the No. 95, it is not a Derrick Brown jersey. Another photo posted on Twitter shows the back of the jersey, which reads 'Panthers' on the nameplate.

So far, there's no word if Rihanna will turn up at a Panthers game this upcoming season, but she's clearly a fan.
