Thursday evening's X Factor results show was noteworthy not just for the decision between Stacy and Astro (and the latter's behavior), but for the fact that Rihanna was not the most controversial person on stage for once in her life.

Performing her latest hit in a bomber jacket pair of circa 1991 ripped jeans, red-haired RiRi thrilled fans with a rendition of her latest dance-pop hit, "We Found Love"

She gave the X Factor performance of the week, no doubt. Watch it below:

Rihanna just leaked a brand new song from her upcoming album.

“You Da One" is the second single from RiRi's Talk That Talk, which drops November 21, and according to the singer, she chose it as her latest single (following "We Found Love") because it's her “fav r[ight]t now, doesn’t sound like anything else.”

But is that a good thing? Take a listen and tell us below ...

What did you think of Rihanna's "You Da One" ...

Before doctors advised Rihanna to cancel her concert in Sweden, the star was seen walking around her hotel, looking happy and strong despite the ailment.

The Barbadian has been battling a nasty case of the flu, and has now been forced to call off her second show in as many days this week because of exhaustion.

"Sorry Malmo!!! #LOUDtour," Rihanna tweeted Monday, along with a pic of herself hooked up to IVs. "I am sorry to everyone who was coming out to my show."

"I was so excited to perform for you. It would have been a great time, so much better than being sick with the flu, ugh! I'm really disappointed I can't be there."

Organizers are working to reschedule the shows. We'll drink to that.

Halloween was less than happy for Rihanna (and her Swedish fans) as she was forced cancel a concert because of the flu. We hope she recovers quickly and fully.

"Sorry Malmo!!! #LOUDtour," Rihanna tweeted, along with a photo of herself hooked up to an IV drip in a hospital in Sweden ... in case we didn't believe her.

"I am sorry to everyone who was coming out to my show in Malmo, Sweden."

Rihanna had to go on an IV last night. Poor thing.

"I was so excited to perform for you. It would have been a great time, so much better than being sick with the flu, ugh! I'm really disappointed I can't be there."

According to the singer's website, Live Nation is hoping to reschedule the performance with details to follow in the next few days. Cross your fingers, Malmo!

In more positive news regarding Rihanna, she's just released her "We Found Love" music video, starring short-term boyfriend Dudley O'Shaughnessy. Hot!

She just couldn't wait any longer.

“Ok I just can’t hold it anymore, and I’m probably in trouble after I say this but ...” Rihanna Tweeted Tuesday morning. “ ... WFLvideo is dropping today!!!”

We actually first found it today, but no complaints girl. WFLvideo, of course, means her video for "We Found Love," co-starring Dudley O’Shaughnessy.

The British model (and Rihanna’s rumored boyfriend for like a week) has great chemistry with her in this video, laden with themes of love as addiction:

“This is probably one of the deepest videos I’ve ever done," the singer Tweeted. "It’s all about love and love being like a drug ... you definitely get that from this. The good feeling of it and the dangers of it. That’s what this video is about.”

It's also about a video about a farmer getting pissed when he saw Rihanna nude in his field in Ireland and demanding the shoot be moved elsewhere.

Just kidding ... although that did more or less happen.

The song is just one of many on Rihanna’s new album, Talk That Talk, is set for release on November 21. Will you be adding it to your collection?

Dudley O'Shaughnessy says he's too busy to date Rihanna.

It appears Matt Kemp does not have that same problem.

The Los Angeles Dodgers center fielder, who dated Rihanna for all of 2010, reunited with the singer for a night out on the town Wednesday in London.

Might there be a romantic reconciliation in the works?

Matt Kemp and Rihanna in Los Angeles last year.

Spotted leaving Stringfellows Nightclub around 2 a.m., the singer - on a break from her Loud tour - sported plum lipstick and a curly 'do to party with her ex.

It's unclear what the future holds, but they did not part on bad terms.

"She's a good friend of mine," Kemp said after they broke up this winter. "We're good. We've got busy lives and we're concentrating on our careers. Like I said, I wish her all the best of luck and she wishes me all the best of luck."

Unfortunately for Matt, his luck improved after they split. His three-year stats, with 2010 being the season in which he and Rihanna dated, are telling:

2009: .297 BA, 107 R, 26 HR, 34 SB
2010: .249 BA, 82 R, 28 HR, 13 SB
2011: .324 BA, 115 R, 39 HR, 40 SB

Dudley O’Shaughnessy has totally hung out with Rihanna a couple of times recently, but calling that "dating" would be premature, he says. Why? He's just too busy!

Despite going out with her more than once, Dud told The Mirror that he's too busy to continue anything with the singer. The British model/boxer, 21, tells the paper:

“We had fun ­together, but I don’t know when I will see her again to be honest.”

“My career is my biggest priority right now,” said the star of her latest music video, before adding: “I’d like to go to America soon ... but for work.”

The pair hit it off when Rihanna hand-picked Dudley O'Shaughnesssy to star in her "We Found Love" video. The two went out together in London last week a few times, and O’Shaughnessy also attended her concert at O2 Arena.

Too bad it was short-lived, they made a cute couple ... although somehow we're guessing based on the Esquire's new cover featuring Rihanna nude and proclaiming her the Sexiest Woman Alive, she'll have no problem moving on.

Following in the smoking hot footsteps of 2010 winner Minka Kelly, Rihanna has just been dubbed by Esquire magazine the Sexiest Woman Alive. Really, Esquire?

We might have gone in another direction there, but the Barbados-bred singer is known for being sexy, and she knows it. There's simply no denying that fact.

Not that the c-word dropping artist cares. "At the end of a concert, I don't feel like I've been this sexy thing. Really, I don't even think about it," she says.

Concert-goers, Internet oglers and Dudley O'Shaughnessy beg to differ:

Rihanna does concede that at times, parts of her act are overtly sexual.

"With 'Skin' or 'S&M,' or when I cover Darling Nikki,'" she allows. "There's a section that's called 'Sex' in the show, which is the obvious section for sexuality."

Obviously.

But that's as far as she'll go -- even if she admits that she loves choosing men from the audience on whom she can grind.

"Like, really? It's never that deliberate in the rest of the show. I don't even really ... I could maybe see 'What's My Name?' - the dancing is pretty sexy. 'Rude Boy.' But I don't know. I guess people find different things sexy."

As for the obligatory comment on the Chris Brown incident ...

Another week, another Rihanna dating rumor surfaces.

Who's the lucky guy dating the c-word lover this time?

Their romantic status is still hazy, but the singer has most definitely been spotted getting cozy with Dudley O'Shaughnessy, a British boxer and model. The connection: Dudley just appeared in the music video for her new single, "We Found Love."

After hitting it off on the set of the video (better than she hit it off with one Irish farmer), two spent time together in London following Rihanna's concert at O2 Arena.

They were photographed, together, leaving the club Mahiki together early Friday morning, according to Britain's The Daily Mail. So, is there a romance brewing?

Says a source at the aforementioned farm, "Rihanna was making no secret that she fancied the pants off Dudley." We presume that can only be high praise.

Also, she reportedly hand-picked Dudley O'Shaughnessy, 21, to appear in the video. Looks like we may have a new, international couple on our hands, folks!

Sometimes you just need your privacy. But it comes with the territory. There's no privacy when you are out in the public.
