Rihanna has been working on her new album while in New York City.
Rihanna has been spotted all over New York City over the last few weeks going to galas, parties and bars. And on Monday night (May 18), she was spotted at trendy Manhattan hotspot 1Oak with her entourage.
What seemed to start as a quiet night on the town for the singer quickly escalated into an impromptu performance by Rihanna. According to People.com, Rihanna was chatting with a friend when her song with T.I., "Live Your Life," came on. She reportedly got on the banquette, threw her arms in the air and began to sing along with the track.
"Everyone around the table went nuts like she was giving a performance or something," an onlooker told People. "She obviously loved the fact that they played her songs."
Earlier in the day, the singer was photographed on her way into a New York recording studio wearing purple Nikes, a Keith Haring-printed blank-and-white jacket and black leggings.[MTV]
According to Page Six the Umbrella singer is definitely over Chris Brown and was seen making out with Canadian rapper/actor Aubrey "Drake" Graham. Rihanna recorded a Chris Brown diss song called "Silly Boy" telling Chris Brown that he had a good girl but didn't know how to treat her. Hopefully Drake doesn't fit the wife beater m.o. like Chris Brown.

Drake looks at little like Chris Brown so maybe he is Rihanna's type. Drake has collaborated with Swizz Beatz and Trey Songz.
RIHANNA is officially over Chris Brown. The Barbadian beauty showed up with a group of friends Monday at Lucky Strike Lanes & Lounge on West 42nd Street, but spent most of the night locking lips with Canadian former child actor-turned-rapper Aubrey "Drake" Graham. "She was drinking whiskey and apple juice and making out with him all night," says a spy. "They were really cute together." RIHANNA, who's also been spending time in town with Katy Perry, peeled off with Drake at about midnight.[PAGESIX]
