Rihanna Breaks Down In Tears On Stage During 'Diamonds' Gig In France (VIDEO)

We're used to seeing Rihanna parading around provocatively or spouting off with that potty mouth of hers, but the singer showed a softer side when she broke down in tears on stage.

RiRi was in the middle of a show in Lille in France as part of her Diamonds World Tour, when she had a 'moment' after performing ballad 'Stay'.

Addressing the crowd, she tried to fight back her emotions, saying: "Lille! I love my French fans, I love you all so much.

After attempting to hide her face from the crowd, she said: "I don't know what the f*** I'm crying about."

Trying to laugh off her tears, she added: "I can't believe this s***. Y'all make me so happy. To stand here and feel the love in this room. The Diamonds tour is nearly coming to an end and I hate this part - I hate saying goodbye."

RiRi then shook it off and carried on with the show. What a trooper.
