Please don't stop the music ... even when Rihanna takes a spill on stage!

The singer took a major tumble while performing in France, but we can laugh because she was totally alright, kept her composure and continued singing.

Grace under pressure, you could call it.

Fresh off rumors that an incident in Switzerland left Rihanna hospitalized, she was performing "Let Me" at Le Dome in Marseille, when she slipped and ...

Fans gasped at her tumbling to the ground, but the hit-maker brushed off the mishap and carried on singing on her knees, barely missing a beat or note.

The girl is a pro.

Hey, these things happen with the elaborate costumes and performances of a Rihanna or Lady Gaga. With the latter, hermaphrodite rumors also occur.

Move over, In Touch. Outta the way, OK and Star.

No one does celebrity gossip like foreign tabs.

Escorted Through the Airport

After giving a performance in Zurich Monday night, the third stop on Rihanna's Last Girl on Earth tour, her tour bus went straight to the Hirslanden Clinic.

The singer, accompanied by a few members of her entourage, entered the private facility. Cue obligatory headlines about Rihanna being rushed to the ER!

No mention has been made of the two-hour visit by Rihanna, but it doesn't look like there was any Chris Brown-style shadiness about this whatsoever.

Rihanna in an outfit only she could pull off.

The singer, who recently confirmed she is dating Matt Kemp, recently left the Dodger in L.A. to embark on her Rated R tour of Europe. Will the show go on?

The director of communications for the hospital, Alenka Ambroz, said that yes, Rihanna came to the hospital, but right now, "We do not know the details."

Calls to the singer's U.S. reps seeking further enlightenment have not been returned, but she appears to be okay, because she was in top form last night.

Whatever the problem, it seemed a faint memory as R packed the house in Lyon, France. She'll continue the tour tonight in the French city of Marseilles.

Now that Rihanna finally confirmed she is dating Matt Kemp, she's no longer being coy about it. Rather, she's being a supportive girlfriend in public.

In their case, being a supportive significant other means attending concerts (her) or Los Angeles Dodgers baseball games (him). Pretty cool couple!

Earlier this week, Ri-Ri was front and center to cheer on her man at the hometown team's home opener and watch Matt Kemp collect some awards.

Matt received both Gold Glove and Silver Slugger awards for his offensive and defensive prowess last season. As for his prowess in the ... forget it.

Rihanna cheered Matt Kemp and the Dodgers to a 9-5 win!

The couple was first linked together over the offseason during a romantic trip to Mexico. While they denied they were really dating, it was fairly clear.

Now it's official, out of the bag and pretty darn cute.

A proud and enthusiastic Dodger backer, Rihanna looked on, clad in a hoodie and shades. Not exactly incognito ... but by her standards, very much so.

Lest you think the singer might be a distraction?

Matt Kemp is hitting a robust .351 so far this season with three home runs, 11 RBIs, 11 runs scored and two stolen bases. Eat it, Jessica Simpson!

They were all but officially together, from everything we read and shared with you, but Rihanna still played coy about her relationship with baseball star Matt Kemp.

Until now.

"He's my boyfriend," Rihanna said of the L.A. Dodgers outfielder in a confession to Ryan Seacrest this morning, just hours after her performance on American Idol.

"It's new and it's fun," she added. "It's nothing too serious. I don't want anything that's going to take up so much of my energy and time right now in a bad way."

She'll be alright. At least this guy slugs home runs out of Dodger Stadium, rather than women. Try not to get too pi$$ed and start breaking stuff, Chris Brown.

"I just want to have fun, and that's what it's about," she said.

Matt Kemp and Rihanna: Officially boyfriend and girlfriend!

They were first seen lip-lockin' in Cabo in early January, although a few days later his agent was in denial mode. He then went MIA from the Grammy Awards.

But the pair became less secretive around the time of Rihanna's birthday in mid-February and when the MLB All-Star introduced her to his parents.

For her to drop the "boyfriend" bomb, things must be going great. Matt Kemp is also 3-10 with 3 RBIs through two games this year, so no side-effects there yet.

They make a pretty hot couple, don't you think?

While the American Idol community is buzzing over the judges' decision to save Michael Lynche from elimination (do you think it was the right call?), we'd like to focus on the two acts that graced the stage last night.

First, what can even be said about David Archuleta at this point? Young, cute crooners such as Alex Lambert and Aaron Kelly have won over many fans this season, but neither compares to this former finalist.

He showed why again last night, serenading the audience with a rendition of "Imagine."

After that, the episode took a 180 degrees turn and showcased a song from Rihanna, looking even more hardcore than usual.

Below, check out her performance of "Rockstar 101," as well as a few photos of both her and David on stage.

Sorry, Clay Aiken and Ruben Studdard. But your summer tour just took a significant backseat.

Rihanna has confirmed that she'll take her new album, "Rated R," on the road this summer, leading a "Last Girl On Earth" North American tour that will also include another diva burning up the charts: Ke$ha!

Rihanna and Justin Bieber have a few things in common:

  • They are both successful musicians with legions of loyal fans
  • Their hairstyles both resemble those of a prepubescent male

Of course, one of the two actually is a prepubescent male ... well, probably. From the Justin Bieber pictures we've seen, he looks like he's 16 going on 9.

Seriously, though, check out this hair-raising comparison. Rihanna might want to rethink the fiery new look she's going for, given who it resembles.

Who looks better with this hairstyle? Vote below ...

Skinny jeans are all the rage. Or at least enough of a rage to be sported by a couple of beautiful young stars recently. Which gal looked best in them, though?

Rihanna stepped out in London in MiH's "Olso" jeans last year, while Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester kept it casual in the same pair for a flight to Los Angeles.

They're both gorgeous, but who wore it best? Vote in the poll below - and if you're a fan of Leighton's show, follow this link for all the latest Gossip Girl spoilers!

Matt Kemp is projected as the sixth-best player in fantasy baseball headed into the 2010 MLB season. If hitting home runs with celebrities was a statistic, though?

He'd still be behind Alex Rodriguez. But that #2 spot would be within reach after the awesome 22nd birthday party he threw for Rihanna in Phoenix this weekend!

Rihanna was "shocked" by the baseball star's grand gestures, apparently expecting a small get-together with a few friends, but getting a whole lot more than that.

Kemp had been planning the event for a month to make sure Rihanna's birthday was special, according to an insider, and boy did he come through in the clutch.

Flowers, cupcakes, tiki torches in the pool, engraved bottles of Ace of Spades and Johnny Walker Blue, and a personal Jamaican chef? A kick-ass time was had.

Sounds like Matt Kemp's birthday bash for Rihanna was a smash hit.

Around 40 people showed up, including friends of both the singer and Matt Kemp, who topped off the night with a cake decorated with Rihanna's many tattoos.

"It was so sweet and she was really surprised," the source said. "She looked just beautiful." Especially in the custom diamond necklace her beau bought for her!

This guy's really going the extra mile. While she has been coy about dating Matt Kemp so far, they're leaving little doubt about a major love connection going on.

Only 25 years old and in his prime, Matt Kemp would be a keeper in any fantasy league. Looks like Rihanna might rate him that way in the game of love, as well.

Rihanna turns 22 today. What a difference a year makes!

The singer will ring in her birthday with a very "private and intimate" bash thrown for her by her boyfriend, L.A. Dodgers slugger Matt Kemp, according to reports.

Last year, a carnival-themed 21st birthday bash for her in NYC was canceled due to the craziness surrounding the attack she suffered at the hands of Chris Brown.

This year, with that in mind:

"(Matt) really wanted to do something nice for Rihanna as she didn't have much of a 21st birthday last year," says an E! News source. Nice guy, that Matt Kemp.

Rihanna's new man is treating her right!

The party, which was going to be a surprise until she caught on, will be a low-key night with "close friends, Jamaican food, a photo booth, dancing and cake."

Sounds ideal if you ask us. Hope all your wishes come true, Birthday Girl! Here's a little tribute we put together of Rihanna pictures to mark the special day.
