Rihanna joins McCartney at Desert Trip


Desert Trip, the festival of renowned 1960s rockers, in its second weekend featured a star of the young generation - Rihanna. The pop star joined former Beatle Paul McCartney (both above) on stage last Saturday night in the California desert for FourFiveSeconds, the song he released last year with her and rapper Kanye West. "We finally found someone under 50," McCartney said as he invited Rihanna, 28, to the stage, according to postings on social media. Desert Trip, featuring rock legends such as The Rolling Stones and The Who, has been nicknamed Oldchella, after Coachella, one of the largest music festivals in the United States.
