Rihanna back on stage after health scare

Rihanna has returned to the stage just a week after she was rushed to hospital, reportedly suffering from exhaustion and dehydration.

The 'Rude Boy' singer – who tweeted a picture of her arm with an IV drip attached on May 9 after attending New York’s Met gala – performed at the Robin Hood Foundation benefit in the Big Apple dressed as an Egyptian princess.

Rihanna appeared on stage at the poverty-fighting event on a huge leopard-print throne and dressed in a gold bandeau top and chiffon trousers split to the thigh, with dramatic eye make-up and a jewelled headpiece.

She entertained with her hits 'Only Girl (In The World)', 'Run This Town' and 'Live Your Life'.
