Rihanna – Rated R at Nokia Launch, London

Nokia Presents Rihanna Live at Brixton Academy

I was a very lucky girl and got tickets to go and see THE d-i-v-a  of the moment, Rihanna, at a top secret London gig for Nokia last night!  Nokia were launching their ‘comes with music’ phone, the Nokia X6 and Rihanna was launching her new album Rated R, so they teamed up and created a gig that was streamed live to Rihanna fans all over the world!

The gig was held at Brixton Academy in London and had a star studded celeb turn out, with Beyonce, Emma Bunton, Jamelia, Keisha Buchanan, Chipmunk, Adele, and Tinchy Stryder all gracing the VVIP area (yep, VIP wasn’t good enough!).

But the celebs didn’t stay locked up in the VVIP area, 2 of them made a surprise appearance on stage with Riri herself! Jay-Z and Young Jeezy joined her on the TV set themed stage, where they performed new track ‘Hard’ with Jeezy, and the crowd went mental when Jay-Z joined her for the huge hit ‘Run This Town’ (it was pretty darn good!).

It was a great gig, and Riri proved that she’s not just a singer, fashionista and icon, but is also leading the way in social media and music! On the night she wore stage outfits by Manish Arora – and looked pretty darn fab!

Umbrella ella ella! Rihanna fans put their umbrellas up!

The whole night was fantastic and I had a great time with fellow bloggers Marian, Reena and Miggy (thanks again for the ticket Marian!) Here’s hoping more artists follow in Rihanna’s footsteps!
