Rihanna Heats Up the Desert at Coachella, Neon Carnival

Rihanna flocked to the desert for Coachella weekend in Indio, Calif. Dressed in a camouflage jacket, faded cutoff shorts, big-brimmed hat, and gun-shaped necklace, the “S&M” singer checked out Arcade Fire’s show on the second day of the festival, later making her way to the second annual Neon Carnival hosted by A|X Armani Exchange and 944 magazine.

“Coachella! Fun times… Arcade Fire, u fuckin blew my mind! Felt like a kid again! U rock!!” she tweeted.

Celebs including Usher, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Paris Hilton rode the Ferris wheel, slide, and bumper cars at the neon-lit extravaganza. DJs Mia Moretti, Rick Rude, and Jessie Marco ignited the dance floor, as guests enjoyed carnival games, cotton candy, and cocktails.

Kanye West will close out the three-day festival tonight. Will RiRi join him onstage for “All of the Lights”?
