Rude girl! Rihanna closes Hackney Weekend in some very cheeky hotpants and fishnet stockings
By Andrea Magrath
Rihanna closed the Hackney Weekend festival on Sunday night with a performance that included a string of her hits and a surprise (albeit widely expected) guest appearance by her mentor Jay-Z.
The 24-year-old took to the stage as the sun was setting over Hackney Marshes to the tune of her 2010 hit Only Girl In The World.
She wore a leather jacket embellished with gold, which was quickly stripped off after the opening number, and tiny black hotpants over cut-off fishnet stockings.
'Hackney, you're crazier than they told me!': The crowd went wild for the closing act of the weekend
The hits continued to roll, with Man Down, Where Have You Been, Wait Your Turn, Hard, and Don't Stop The Music.
Finally, the opening bars of Run This Town sounded, confirming what many were expecting: Jay-Z arrived onstage for a guest appearance.
After Rihanna made a cameo onstage the night before to help open the rapper's set, it was all but a given that he would re-pay the favour.
A-list fans: Florence Welch was spotted backstage watching the performance
Fireworks were set off behind the stage as Rihanna once again ran down to the audience, who went crazy for the dance track.
A host of stars who had performed earlier at the event were spotted enjoying the show from backstage.
Florence Welch and Tinie Tempah were both spied dancing along from the side of the stage.
Beyoncé was also hiding in the wings, following her appearance in the mosh pit during her husband's set the previous night.
Hours earlier, Rihanna was pictured leaving her London hotel en route to the free East London festival.
