Making an entrance: Rihanna 'sails' past the Paralympic athletes on a punk pirate ship as she performs at the Closing Ceremony

She's known for her raunchy wardrobe and showing off rather a lot of skin on stage.
But tonight (Sunday), Rihanna covered up as she performed to the world at the Paralympics Closing Ceremony.
The Barbadian singer was announced as a 'special guest of Coldplay' as she entered the stadium on a punk pirate ship.

The singer had flown in specially to London to duet with frontman Chris Martin on their No.4 hit Princess Of China.
The 24-year-old wore a pair of drawstring orange trousers, sheer blouse and coat as she 'sailed' into the Olympic Stadium on the boat.
At the beginning of the song, her vocals were drowned out by Chris and the music, before she gained strength later in the track.

The entrance of Rihanna after eight Coldplay songs was no doubt a welcome relief for people who weren't fans of the rock band.
During the singer's duet with the band, Twitter was awash with comments of how covered up she was in her full-length outfit and questioning why a non-Brit was playing at the ceremony.
The previous opening and closing ceremonies for the Olympics and opening ceremony for the Paralympics all included British singers and bands.

One Twitter user wrote: 'Rihanna has put some clothes on. This must be an important gig! #closingceremony.'
And another one tweeted: 'Rihanna isn't even British shouldn't even be there.'
Following her duet, Rihanna took a step back as Coldplay performed their song Strawberry Swing with the Para Orchestra, led by Charles Hazelwood.

She then returned to arena, seated on a metal bench suspended in the air as she sang her own hit We Found Love.
Before she went on, she said: ‘Being at the Paralympics is the biggest honour. These athletes are gladiators and are a true inspiration to me.’
Coldplay and Rihanna were paid the token sum of £1 for their appearances.

Just hours before going on stage, she Tweeted cryptically: ‘B****** ain’t gettin money, but they got an opinion’, and, using a racial slur, wrote, ‘Yea I’m talkin Rih, n**** I’m talkin me’.
Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, 35, who is married to Hollywood actress Gwenyth Paltrow, said: ‘Being asked to play at the closing celebrations for the Paralympic athletes in London is such a great honour for us.
‘It was one of the biggest nights of our lives and we were excited to try to create a performance for the last night of the games that closed London 2012 in style.’
