Rihanna irked by French fans

Paris - Rihanna let rip in a series of foul-mouthed Twitter posts, saying she had to fight her way out of a Paris train station after a crowd of French fans gathered to greet her.

The singer from Barbados had earlier posted a photo showing herself at London's St Pancras station - and the time of her train's departure for Paris marked on a station sign.

She arrived at the Gare du Nord in Paris on the Eurostar late on Saturday to find an enthusiastic crowd waiting to greet her.

The station's security team and her own bodyguards struggled to protect her from the crush as she tried to leave the station.

“The French are f***in insane!!!” she tweeted a little later.

“FYI, if u push me, you WILL get pushed the f*** back!” she added.

“I just had to fight my way out of a damn train station!!!” she exclaimed.

Rihanna later appeared as special guest of British band Coldplay for their sold-out concert in front of 80 000 fans at the Stade de France. - Sapa-AFP
