When fans tried to get a little too close to the singer, however, things got a little scary.
In the video below, Rihanna's car is seen arriving at her Paris hotel and a sea of overzealous fans starts banging on the car and chasing it down the street.
When Rihanna exits the vehicle, complete chaos ensues. (Fast forward to the 1:45-minute mark if you're in a hurry.)
We understand that the fans are excited, but at what point does excitement turn dangerous? When the guard rails are knocked over? Check. When people start falling on the ground? Check.
The singer has a couple of bodyguards around her, but they are outnumbered in a big way.
Paris is known for having pretty strict rules about the paparazzi, but do the same rules apply to fans with camera phones?
