This is quite big news if you're a fan of Rihanna and/or mobile handset manufacturers: the popular warbler will be coming to LONDON to perform a SPECIAL QUITE SMALL GIG on NOVEMBER 16 and it's SOMETHING TO DO WITH NOKIA.
The show is officially to launch her new album but let's face it it's also to flog mobile phones . It'll be beamed live across the internet and it will all be very exciting, a bit like when Madonna did that Brixton Academy show ages ago and everyone went "OMG OMG OMG OMG", except that was in the days before 'OMG' really existed. But it will be a bit like that.
WE'VE GOT SOME TICKETS TO GIVE AWAY
Nokia are giving us 20 tickets to distribute as we see fit. Please be aware that we might give some of these to friends because frankly you would wouldn't you but we'll definitely be giving away SEVEN PAIRS OF TICKETS to Popjustice readers.
To win: write a poem about Rihanna. We'd actually like to see some good poems here so we'll give you until Monday morning 9am UK to get your entries in. We might see if we can find a proper poet to pick the winners. If not we'll just pick the best ones ourselves or something. Send your entries to [email protected] — make them poignant or funny or creative or whatever.
Incidentally, if you've ever wanted to hear Rihanna say "I'm Rihanna and this is my widget", you're in luck.
Is this new album the most widgetised pop release of 2009? We don't know.
