Rihanna’s everywhere at the moment isn’t she? We’d have thought the ‘We Found Love’ singer was a bit tied up, what with tweeting photos of herself left right and center, starring in a Hollywood film and teasing us with promos for her new single.

Yet it seems the 24-year-old star still  found the time to collaborate with Coldplay on their new track 'Princess of China' AND star in the official tour video.

Wow that's a lot of arms. Rihanna's geisha style 'do, dramatic eyes and sleek, cleavage bearing dress make for a pretty powerful image. Well, the arms help a bit too.

Ri's also sporting some pretty heavy duty fingernail hardware. She wants to be careful - she could have an eye out with those.

Chris Martin may have had an ulterior motive for using Rihanna on the track (apart from the fact she’s fricking fabulous) – he let slip in an interview recently that he rates her as the third most attractive woman in the world!

Actually, Chris managed to dig himself a bit of a whole in a pretty lol-tastic way when talking to ET Canada.

“I think she’s the third most attractive lady in the world. My first and second is the same person [Gwyneth], she gets two. Rihanna’s a distant third.” He said.

“Cameron Diaz is up there as well, she’s third. There’s a few thirds, Beyonce is third as well. Naming all these great ladies…this is a silly conversation! This is going to be the headline, I’ve just screwed up the whole interview,” he added.

Oops! Considering that Chris and his wife Gwyneth Paltrow are BFF’s with Jay-Z and Beyonce, we’re not entirely sure that telling the world you fancy B was an amazing idea Chris.

The Coldplay frontman did however manage to stop talking about fit ladies long enough to say a little bit about the collaboration with Rihanna.

"The album is designed as a whole piece," he said. "It has boy and girl lead characters and top of our list for the girl part was Rihanna, but it took a while to pluck up the courage to ask her.

"We did a show in Las Vegas and I met her and said, "Do you think there's any chance?" I was very Hugh Grant-like and spluttering about it," he added. 

"She has such an amazing voice and it's so different to mine."

While we have to wait until next month for the official music video, the tour video HAS been released, and you can watch it here! Then tell us what you think, K?
