Rihanna gives it the sex factor at O2 show

POP babe Rihanna stormed the stage at the O2 Dublin last night as she wowed fans with a super-raunchy performance.

The 23-year-old may have got her marching orders from a Bangor farmer after shedding her clothes in his field, but there was certainly no censoring her last night as she donned increasingly skimpy outfits for fans at her Loud concert.

The Umbrella star had already spent the day holed up in the Clarence Hotel working on her new recording. The Bajan beauty booked into the top two floors of the hotel with her entourage as she worked away on her sixth studio album.

The famous hotel, partly owned by Bono and The Edge, is her base for her two-day stay in the capital as she keeps a low profile following the controversy up North.

The superstar babe, who once went on a date with Colin Farrell, enjoyed the luxury of the duplex Penthouse suite, which is spread out over the fifth and sixth floors and boasts fantastic views of the city -- as well as an outdoor hot-tub.

But despite speculation that she could be indulging in some retail therapy, she opted to stay at the hotel amid pressure to complete work on her new release.

Her entourage was pictured enjoying the nightlife in the Grafton Lounge on Sunday night -- but the singer herself was nowhere to be seen.

The star's new album is due for release on November 21
