There's no slowing down Rihanna!
After the third day of her 777 tour in Stockholm, she may have hit up Stockholm's after party at 4:30 a.m., but that doesn't mean Ri-Ri wasn't prepared for Paris.
The French capital stop marked the fourth day of her tour in which Rihanna once again switched up her style. After making a big impression on Stockholm by going bra-less, in Paris she opted for only an oversized shirt and, yes, no bottoms!
The singer paired the look with long black stiletto boots, telling the crowd on arrival: "I couldn't wait to get here, honestly, I couldn't wait to get to Paris. I love you guys, you have the best energy in the world.
And she wasn't kidding—Paris proved to match Rihanna's wattage as the crowd never stopped singing, often picking up the lyrics where Rihanna left off with one fan even opening an umbrella during Rihanna's "Umbrella." Ri-Ri reciprocated the love, giving a shout out to Rihanna Navy.
However, all wasn't smooth sailing for the singer. At one point, she appeared to have an earpiece problem, yanking it out and angrily motioning backstage while one of her techs tried to run out and hand her a new piece, which she pushed away.
Another issue Rihanna may have run into? Paris' strict noise ordinances.
The City of Light limits how loud and late a performance can be, requiring Rihanna to finish her peformance by 10:30 p.m. Yet, despite starting her set at 9:40, she played straight through until quiting time, opting to skip her acoustic set, telling the crowd: "It's something we haven't done yet, but we're going to skip a section."
However, her Parisian fans got a surprise with the performance of her hit "Stay."
And, as she has after each show, the singer exited the stage on the shoulders of her security guard, while she reaches out to fans and poses for photos.
Talk about a performer!
