The woman recognized Rihanna immediately and proceeded to chat to her during the intimate procedure - leaving the star squirming throughout the process.
She says, "I went to this wax salon and she recognized me before I took my clothes off and I think she couldn't wait until we were alone and she could ask for an autograph or a picture or something. So I'm lying there and in pain...
"Every time time I get a wax I specify the lady is old and speaks Russian and no English and she was a 25 year old American and she was basically like, 'I know who you are, you're Rihanna!' I was like 'Awkward!'
"It was probably one of the most awkward moments of my entire life. I just got up and I got outta there and said (to my manager), 'Don't ever bring me back here! I told you, old and Russian!'"
