Rihanna is proving she's a major Scandal fan!

While in Washington, D.C. today, the 26-year-old singer took to Instagram to share photos of her sightseeing trip and to call on some of her favorite characters from ABC's hit political drama.

Ri-Ri first shared a pic of herself posing with a payphone outside the White House. "'CYRUS!!! LET ME IN!!' #DayAtTheWhiteHouse," she captioned the pic (she's of course referring to character Cyrus Beene, played by Jeff Perry, who is the president's chief of staff). In the photo, Rihanna shows off her hot bod in a colorful printed dress and black heels (Olivia Pope would approve!).


Rihanna shared a similar payphone pic, but called out Tony Goldwyn's character President Fitzgerald Grant. ""Fitz, darling..." she wrote while channeling Kerry Washington's character from the show.

Inside the White House, Rihanna hit up the pressroom and pretended to be current Scandal Press Secretary Abby Whelan (played by Darby Stanchfield). "#heyAbby," Ri-Ri wrote with a pic of herself standing at the pressroom podium.


Stanchfield took notice of Rihanna's shout-out and responded one Twitter with, "Got your Insta RiRi."

Lastly, Rihanna shared a snapshot with friends inside the West Wing. "West Wing Posse!! We wanna be O.P.A. so bad!!! #DayAtTheWhiteHouse," she wrote.
