Rihanna can't wait to go on tour with Eminem.
The rapper announced he is embarking on a three-city US tour with the 26-year-old singer, whom he has collaborated with three times in the past, on 'The Monster' and on two versions of 'Love the Way You Lie', this summer.
The 41-year-old star told XXL magazine on Friday (21.02.14): "There are some shows coming up with Rihanna. It's a three-city tour: New York, Los Angeles and Detroit coming in August. The Monster Tour."
Rihanna later shared her excitement about their upcoming performances on Twitter, writing: "@Eminem: NYC/DET/LA this August with @Rihanna! #TheMonsterTour - OH IM THERE!!!!!"
The Barbados-born beauty opened up about why she loves working with the rapper during an interview with Complex magazine last month.
She said: "The moment I worked with him on 'Love the Way You Lie,' I wanted to work with him again, and we did 'Love the Way You Lie Part 2.'
"And then I wanted to work with him again. I just love working with Eminem. He's just one of my favourite rappers, and his lyrics - he's a true poet, and I enjoy that about him. For this song, I needed someone with not only his skill, but his personality. And I needed someone who really understands the perspective and the metaphor in the song of going numb and being numb to everything around and to say, 'F**k you.' Eminem is definitely the perfect guy for that."
