Party girl Rihanna was in London for most of last week, but it was strictly business for the pop superstar as she began work with River Island on her fashion collection, due to be released next year.
Last night, however, the singer took the last train to Paris (literally!) to join her friends Coldplay on stage at their Stade De France show.
Ri-Ri and Coldplay performed their collaboration, ‘Princess of China’, and a unique version of ‘Umbrella’.
The concert was recorded for a forthcoming live DVD, but in the meantime here’s a clip of the ‘Princess of China’ performance – what a lucky crowd!
Want to see Coldplay, Justin Bieber, Usher, Katy Perry, The Wanted, Jessie J, Ed Sheeran, Flo Rida, Kelly Clarkson, Example and Pit-Bull all on the same line up?

And if you consider an incredibly lucky person then make sure you tune into Capital FM nationwide for the chance to win tickets.

The Grammy Awards – an influential event designed to celebrate and showcase some of America’s finest musical artists, or an excuse for everyone to try and outdo each other with outrageous costumes, wacky props and controversial performances (or in Gaga’s case, some serious attention seeking)? We’ll let you lot be the judge of that.
Couldn’t bring yourself to stay awake into the early hours of the morning yesterday to watch the entire show? As usual, we’ve done all the hard work for you.

Rihanna’s dirty collaboration, Kanye’s fashion plans, Coldplay’s Brit Awards duet and JLS’s “new jack swing” – gossip!
Brit Awards host James Corden has let slip that Coldplay frontman Chris Martin will be teaming up with Noel Gallagher at the ceremony in a few weeks. Noel Gallagher’s group High Flying Birds are just one of the several performers at the awards, taking place in London on February 21. Have our dreams of Coldplay teaming up with Rihanna for ‘Princess Of China’ been ruined already?
Speaking of the Brit Awards, nominees JLS have been dishing even more dirt on their new album. The group have been working on the record in the US alongside acclaimed producers Babyface and Rodney ‘Darkchild’ Jerkins and have apparently been working on “throwback 90′s new jack swing” – a far cry from the dancier stuff we’ve been hearing from them recently. Don’t forget to read our guide to the new JLS album for even more gossip.
As we revealed yesterday, Rihanna has been hinting at a brand new and exciting collaboration for her track ‘Birthday Cake’. Ri wants a “dirrrty” pop star for the collab, which many took as a hint that she was after Christina Aguilera – but Rihanna has since insisted that the guest star needs to be a dude. Who do you think she should enlist?
You may have noticed that a certain Mr West has been quiet of late, well now we know it’s all for good reason. The rapper has put music to one side for the moment and is currently hard at work on his fashion line. The new collection will be debuted at Paris Fashion Week, although his womenswear last year was met with mixed reviews. Maybe stick to the music ‘Ye?
