After a rough past week for the Paralympics, with sex abuse charges being brought upon Jordanian athletes, we're happy to hear there's some good news on the horizon: Rihanna is reportedly joining Coldplay at the Paralympics closing ceremony!
A new report is saying that she'll be performing a short set before taking stage WITH Coldplay for Princess of China!
Here's what the source said:
"All the Closing Ceremony details are top secret but Rihanna has already started rehearsing. As soon as Coldplay signed up she was [eager to join] them on stage. The Closing Ceremony is basically [going to be] a glorified Coldplay concert. They will hardly be off stage.
They were originally approached to do the main Olympics but turned it down for the Paralympics. They may only be getting paid £1 to perform but they will make a fortune in royalties as their music flies up the charts afterwards."
We love seeing people eager to do things like this — especially since it's a super special and incredible cause.
The show is said to have the theme of 'the elements' - earth, wind, water, fire and ice… and we hope it goes off without a hitch!
