Rihanna and Jay-Z may have rocked London's Hackney Weekend, but it seems their star status failed to blag them any freebies - they reportedly had to pay for their own riders.
The rap mogul was joined by his singing protegee during his set on Saturday, and he returned the favour on Sunday by joining Rihanna for three songs during her own gig at the BBC Radio 1 event.
But network bosses were determined to avoid a licence fee furore by ensuring they tightened their belts for the event - and as a result, the festival acts, which also included Jessie J and Plan B, were forced to shell out for their own extras, according to The Mirror.
A source tells the publication: "The VIP artists got quite a shock when they were booked. They were told they were welcome to bring an entourage and their families as long as they paid for their fair share of the facilities themselves.
"To have a rider, they had to fork out £1,000 - and that's per rider."
The cost would be small change to Jay-Z and Rihanna, who are allegedly worth £305m and £46m, respectively - and the Umbrella hitmaker clearly used some of her fortune to make her set one to remember.
She stormed onstage to Only Girl (In the World) and performed in front of a giant Sphinx on a Egyptian-themed set for the 50,000-strong crowd.
Rihanna whipped through a hits-packed set, singing tracks including What's My Name?, Rude Boy, Love The Way You Lie and Disturbia - and one lucky fan got up-close-and-personal with the star.
The Bajan beauty, who wore a black leather jacket and fishnet shorts, told the audience she had an issue with her microphone pack, and asked a reveller to fix the problem for her.
She revealed, "It's dropping out of my bra... I'll get one of my fans to help. You gotta be good, don't touch my bra, right!", before joking: "I asked a gay guy to put this on my bra, I don't know if he's going to get this right."
