SINGAPORE - For the past two days, Rihanna had titillated her fans by posting on her Instagram page a stream of pictures of herself in bikinis while chilling in Thailand.
But Singapore fans hoping to catch the Barbadian superstar in similarly saucy outfits during her performance here last night would have been disappointed.
Giving her usual revealing togs a miss, Rihanna stuck to one outfit - a quirky knee-length dress with what looked like a green overcoat and sneakers - for her gig at the Padang as part of the 2013 Formula 1 SingTel Singapore Grand Prix.
In fact, her back-up dancers had more costume changes than she did.
But then again, Riri, as she is affectionately known to her fans, doesn't need sexy outfits to heat up the stage.
She kickstarted her 90-minute set at about 10.45pm with Phresh Out The Runway, unleashing non-family friendly moves that included plenty of hip-thrusting, gyrating and self-touching.
She also twerked up a storm throughout her performance, with moves that would put Miley Cyrus to shame.
The energy picked up when she launched into familiar hits You Da One, Man Down and Rude Boy.
