Rihanna Rides The London Tube To The 02

Reason #247 why Rihanna is one of the coolest pop stars on the planet: she road the London Underground to her first 02 Arena gig.

"I'm going to the show with the audience, and they have no idea," she says in a video posted to her website. Sure, RiRi — that pack of burly bodyguards surrounding you is the very definition of incognito.

Can you picture Beyonce pulling this kind of stunt? She'd have to rent out the entire tube first, so no one else could ride it, and then have her handler taser any stragglers left in the station.



Naturally, "the youngsters" recognize the chart queen immediately and line up to get their pic snapped with the "We Found Love" broad. And she obliges, which once again reminds us all why Rihanna has left a trail of slain wigs in her path over the past few years.
