Rihanna made a surprise appearance in the crowd for the Sri Lanka v West Indies match at ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 in Durham last Monday. The Work singer, pretty much startled the world – and Londoners – when she announced she has been secretly living in the capital for the last few months. And in case we did not believe her, the 31-year-old made a surprise appearance at the cricket match to prove to us that she is really truly soaking up the UK culture – and rare sun. The actress even posed for photographs inside the Riverside Stadium which the West Indies cricket team’s Twitter page then posted. The singer from Barbados, where cricket is already a popular sport, cheered on from her seats with a friend as she wore a large white jacket which she paired with a matching crop top and high-waisted white trousers. Adding on a truly large pair of rockstar shades, Rihanna completed her look with a bright red lip. The Fenty founder clearly enjoyed her day off from running a business empire as she laughed and chatted with a friend while sipping on a drink.

She even drinks like a queen. The hitmaker recently told The New York Times that she’s been ‘keeping a little incognito’ while staying in the capital and is enjoying the relative anonymity the city brings. Seriously, how did nobody spot her? Not one single person. More proof that she has superpowers, to be honest. In a recent interview she said: ‘[I enjoy] walking around the block. When I go walking, I try to keep it a little incognito,’ adding that she finds Bank Holidays ‘insane’ (in a good way). On learning of the move, many joined the dots from a previous selfie Rihanna shared which had a shopping bag from Sainsbury’s in the background.

And while her designer title takes on new heights, fans are still pining for new music more than three years after her last album, Anti, hit the shelves.

It isn’t in the books right now, but I’m not against it,’ she said of a possible collaboration with Lady Gaga before admitting ‘I don’t see it happening’ when asked if she would work with her ex Drake. However, she did confirm the next release will be a ‘reggae album’ but she doesn’t have a title yet.
