Last night she wowed as she closed the 2012 Paralympic Games alongside Coldplay and Jay-Z.

But not one to stick around as she enjoys the jet setting lifestyle, Rihanna was pictured today (Monday) as she left her London hotel and headed to Heathrow airport.

The Rude Boy singer was dressed down as she said goodbye to the capital whilst in the company of her doting mother Monica.

With every reason to be in high spirits following her performance yesterday, Rihanna smiled as she walked out of the hotel hand in hand with her mother.

Wearing a navy, grey and white striped beanie hat with a grey Letterman jacket which had her name printed on it, the singer opted to go for comfort as she journeyed to the airport.

All smiles: The 24-year-old looked surprised to see so many of her fans outside the hotel as she waved

Rihanna's mother looked summery in a yellow mini-dress which she teamed with a denim sleeveless jacket and a pair of black pumps.

Before hopping into her waiting car, the singer said her goodbyes to her fans who had waited for her outside the hotel, she handed out hugs, autographs and posed for pictures.

Last night, Rihanna celebrated her hugely successful performance at the Paralympics Closing Ceremony by shaking her groove thing at the Arts Club in Mayfair.

The Where Have You Been star wore an orange Kenzo T-shirt and a pair of patterned trousers with pointed black court shoes.

Delighted with her offering at the Olympic Stadium, she tweeted: 'What a blessed evening!!!! #Coldplay #HOV #paralmpicsclosingceremony.'

This weekend also saw RIhanna unveil her new tattoo - a less than understated design on her ribcage which she had inked in tribute to her late grandmother Dolly.

Explaining the etching, which features the goddess Isis with her wings spread wide, Rihanna tweeted alongside a picture of the new addition to her collection: 'Complete Woman - Model for future generations- #GRANGRANDOLLY - always in and on my heart #1lo.'

But last night Rihanna opted to instead keep the design hidden beneath her modest T-shirt.

Whats the point of people just commenting on every article about her that she is stunning, you have nothing else to say?? We know that and she knows that too instead of saying the obvious why not comment on her talent which is even more stunning.
