Lena Dunham had the best time at Rihanna’s Anti tour, which was evident when she posted photos from the run’s stop at Newark, New Jersey’s Prudential Center on Saturday night. Posing with boyfriend Jack Antonoff and Amy Schumer, Dunham tweeted at the time, “Quitting my job to follow Rihanna’s Anti Tour like those weird dudes who travel with Phish.”

The Girls creator’s fandom continued when she penned a note in this week’s Lenny Letter, calling seeing Rihanna “profoundly necessary.”

“[I]t’s the most profoundly psychosexual hour and a half I have ever enjoyed,” Dunham wrote. “From the moment she appeared in celestial white to moan Stay til her Helmet Newton tinged grindathon finale of Kiss It Better I knew I was in the presence of otherworldly greatness.”

She called the show “a ball of passion” and also included a round-up of Rih’s best tracks.

Welcome to the Navy, Lena.
