The Barbados babe stole the show at the Jingle Bell Ball when she writhed amid a waterfall of pyrotechnics during her mega-hit Umbrella. Rihanna, 20, told me: “Lily Allen is bad ass – I love her. I also really like Duffy and Leona Lewis, who is so beautiful, with an amazing voice. I would love to do a collaboration with those girls.” The US megastar also gushed about her UK fans. She said: “I can’t believe I have three songs in the UK Top 40. I just wanna say thank you to the UK for all your love. Don’t ever stop. “I will always come back here. I would love to do the X Factor.” The busy beauty also revealed she won’t be taking a break next year – even after releasing a record-breaking eight singles in 2008. She said: “I’m going to start work on my next album early in the year. There may be a cool collaboration, but you’ll have to wait and see.” Bring it on.
