Earlier this week, Rihanna announced details of a new tour to coincide with the release of ‘Unapologetic’. The Bajan singer will play seven gigs over seven days in seven different countries. Dubbed the 777 tour, she will kick off the string of dates in London on November 14, before stopping off in Paris, Toronto, Berlin, Los Angeles, Stockholm and New York. The plane will include members of her fan club and 150 journalists.

It was recently confirmed that Rihanna will switch on the Christmas lights at Westfield shopping centre in London this December. She will earn a reported £5m for the appearance.
