Rihanna Sets The Stage On Fire

Rihanna is undeniably one of the hottest women in the world, but her performance last night in Lisbon, Portugal showed the singer physically bursting into flames as a result of her racy on-stage antics.

Posting this spectacular picture on her Instagram account labelled “#DIAMONDSWORLDTOUR”, the dramatic photo showed the sexy songstress with her head flung black and a fiery torrent exploding up and out of her body. Wearing a black and white bustier and skin-tight yellow and red high-waisted trousers, we were seriously begining to worry that the ferocious flames were about to turn the singer’s PVC ensemble into a melty mess…

But fear not, RiRi fans. Turns out, the impressive snap was simply a result of daring concert pyrotechnics and clever camera trickery. Phew!

Rihanna has been unusually quiet on Twitter ever since former child star Amanda Bynes launched her scathing attack on the Pour It Up singer on Sunday. Posting a string of abusive comments such as “Chris Brown beat you because you’re not pretty enough” and “No one wants to be your lover so you call everyone and their mother” before quickly deleting them, Rihanna simply shot back: “Ya see what happens when they cancel intervention?”, alluding to Amanda’s recent arrest and psychiatric evaluation.

The Easy A actress has since tweeted that the insults were fake and that her account had been hacked: “I saw a bunch of mocked up tweets about me bashing Rihanna in my mentions”, she posted. “I’m followed by so many people that someone is always mocking up fake tweets so I feel the need to address them! Rihanna and I met and I’m sure we’ll be in a music video together one day!”

Whatever was behind those tweets, it looks like RiRi is doing a pretty fab job of rising above it. You go girl.
