Jay, who had previously performed and collaborated with rocker and vacation buddy Chris Martin of Coldplay, fit in perfectly on the sold out tour, hopping up to rock a new verse with the band over their 1983 classic 'Sunday Bloody Sunday.'

In a call with New York’s 92.3 NOW FM, the “California King Bed”-ridden beauty reveals how the collaboration came to be, and also jumps in to defend her fellow inked diva when host Lil Cee suggests that Britney’s “nasally” contribution to the track may be bad (and not perfectly good at it).

A warning has been added to Kanye West's latest music video. The 'All of the Lights' promo, which features Rihanna, was recently criticised for not containing a health warning due to its flashing imagery, prompting Epilepsy Action to speak out. The video could have induced fits in viewers with photosensitive epilepsy, the British charity warned.

The new notice added to the YouTube video reads: "Warning: This video has been identified by Epilepsy Action to potentially trigger seizures for people with photosensitive epilepsy. Viewer discretion is advised." The track is the fourth single to be taken from West's fifth studio album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. [SOURCE]

Rihanna has set a new record as the first female solo artist in UK chart history to achieve number one singles in five consecutive years.



The Official Charts Company announced her record after What's My Name? rose from number two to the top spot. The last solo artist to achieve the feat was Elvis Presley, who had number ones in each year from 1957 to 1963. Rihanna's album Loud also holds on to its number one slot, giving her the second UK chart double of her career.

In 2007, her album Good Girl Gone Bad and single Umbrella topped both charts simultaneously. Loud has now sold nearly 900,000 copies since its release in November last year. As well as her number one, Rihanna, who is 22 and from Barbados, also appears on two other songs in the top 10 - Only Girl (In The World) and Who's That Chick.

Only Girl (In The World) was a number one last year and followed other number ones for Run This Town (2009), Take A Bow (2008) and Umbrella (2007). Other albums which have re-entered the top 10 are Plan B's The Defamation of Strickland Banks, Rumer's Seasons Of My Soul and Cee Lo Green's The Lady Killer which climbs to its highest chart position yet at number four. In the singles chart, the BBC's Sound Of 2011 winner, Jessie J, climbs to number five from last week's 18 with Do It Like A Dude.

After over a year of speculation, Rihanna has finally opened up about her short-lived fling with Young Money rapper Drake. Having recently appeared together in a steamy video for their song 'What's My Name?' the Barbados-born singer addressed their rumored affair in an interview with Hot 97 radio personality Angie Martinez earlier this week, while promoting her new album, 'Loud.'

"We weren't really sure what it was," Rihanna explained. "I definitely was attracted to Drake, but I think it is what it is, like it was what it was." Rihanna continued to explain that their brief relationship, which Drake rapped about on his song 'Fireworks,' suffered from ill-timing, as she was still recovering from her abusive relationship with Chris Brown.

When Rihanna heard an early version of the album, the posse cut was 'one of my favorite songs.'



MADRID — For months now, Kanye West has been giving fans a taste of My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy through his G.O.O.D. Friday initiative, but for Rihanna, he rolled out his entire album — a move that had just as much to do with their friendship as it did with convincing her to jump on a track.

"[Kanye] actually played his album to me, like, three months ago, and 'All of the Lights,' that was one of my favorite songs," Rihanna told MTV News at the 2010 MTV Europe Music Awards on Sunday. "So when he asked me to come up to the studio at 2 o'clock in the morning, I had to, because I loved it, I knew it was that song."
