Rihanna is Switching on the Westfield Stratford City Christmas Lights and getting paid £5million

Can you guess what’s special this winter? The world-famous superstar Rihanna will switch on the Christmas lights at a Christmas event! This event will take place in Cherry Park, and she is expected to entertain at least 15,000 fans, Ambassadors of Westfield who are members of its charity partner Save the Children.

This will mark the beginning of the countdown for switching on the Christmas lights at the end of which there will be a presentation of pyrotechnics and lasers.

So don’t you want to know which song the rock star will perform to? It’s a song called Diamonds from her new album “Unapologetic”. This event will mark the launch of this entertaining album in the United Kingdom. This is not its people! If you are lucky enough, you can also expect to get a chance to meet your favourite superstar.

And as per DailyMail – ‘Even though the final contract is still being thrashed out, they’re prepared to pay up to £5 million for her.’

Talking about this exciting event Myf Ryan, General Manager, Marketing UK, said, “Christmas is always such a special time of year for Westfield, and we are so excited that Rihanna has chosen Westfield Stratford City to help celebrate the festivities. Our shoppers love Rihanna, and we are proud to be able to host this unique and exclusive concert for UK fans.”

Just recently, this year, Rihanna was ranked one of the 100 most influential people in the world. Now isn’t that a great achievement for a girl at 24? As if this was not enough to make the world envy her, she has been ranked by Forbes as fourth in-line to the World’s Most Powerful Celebrity. And who is the most popular female on Facebook and YouTube, with 62.5 million friends? The answer to this question once again is Rihanna!


To add to this, she has also broken many of the Guinness World Records by being the best-selling digital artist of all time in the USA. The most talked-about Diamonds World Tour will begin next year, starting at Buffalo, New York, and halting at 28 other places in North America.

After this, it’s the turn of Europe to get mesmerized by her magic. The European tour starts in Bilbao, Spain, on May 26th and runs through July with stops in Austria, Belgium, Finland, France, Germany, Holland, Norway, Portugal, Sweden, and the UK with additional cities, dates, and special festival events still to be announced.
