Rihanna was forced to make an emergency evacuation from her hotel in London at 6 am on Wednesday, after an elevator shaft caught fire.
The 24-year-old singer was one of the 300 guests who were forced to wait outside the Corinthian in Whitehall Place in the early hours while fire fighters attended the scene.
The sleepy star tweeted a picture of her bundled up in the back of a taxi in a grey hoodie and sunglasses as she opted to take a ride around the city, instead of waiting outside.
“Roamin da streets since 6am! Fyah in da telly,” the New York Post quoted her as tweeting.
A London Fire Brigade spokesman said that no one was injured in the blaze but the fire did cause a small amount of damage to an elevator on the 7th floor of the hotel.
