Pretty in pink. Rihanna stepped out to MAC Cosmetics & MAC AIDS Fund’s premiere of It’s Not Over in L.A. on Tuesday. The Barbados beauty was classy, yet sexy in a pink gingham Altuzarra skirt suit while posing with MAC executives.

She reportedly played 10 songs for executives in New York last week and one of the tracks, “I’ve Been Searching for Something to Ignite Me When I’m Alone,” may serve as a single.

On December 11, RiRi will host and perform at the 1st Annual Diamond Ball, a black-tie fundraising event benefiting her Clara Lionel Foundation, which works to improve the quality of life for global communities in the areas of health, education, arts, and culture.

Rihanna and Eminem

In honor of Veteran’s Day, music’s biggest stars united in Washington, D.C. to pay tribute to the nation’s veterans at “The Concert for Valor.” The three-hour event, which aired live on HBO, featured performances from Eminem, Rihanna, Bruce Springsteen, Metallica, Dave Grohl, Zac Brown Band, and Carrie Underwood, with appearances from Jamie Foxx, Meryl Streep, Steven Spielberg, and Tom Hanks.

Before a crowd of 800,000 at the National Mall, Jennifer Hudson kicked things off with a stirring rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner.” The powerhouse diva also joined Jessie J for a duet of David Guetta and Sia’s “Titanium,” and the British sensation stuck around to sing her hit “Bang Bang.”

Following an introduction from “Breaking Bad’s” Bryan Cranston, Rihanna—clad in a glittery cape—shined bright while singing “Diamonds.”

“Happy Veteran’s Day! I just want to thank you all, all the veterans, from the bottom of my heart for giving your time and your life for this country. We thank you, we love you,” said RiRi before dedicating “Stay” to them.

She closed out her set by bringing out Eminem for their duet “The Monster.”

“D.C., happy motherfu**in’ Veteran’s Day,” said Em before launching into his ShadyXV single “Guts Over Fear.” He dedicated “Not Afraid” to the veterans, and capped off the evening with “Lose Yourself.”

“To all the veterans in here tonight and everyone currently serving in our armed forces, and also to the ones who didn’t make it home, I just want to say thank you for your sacrifices,” said the Detroit rapper.

Watch Em and RiRi salute the troops.

While in Washington, D.C. for a Veteran’s Day concert, Rihanna paid a visit to the White House on Monday. The pop superstar and her crew got a private tour of President Obama’s digs at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, and also had some fun reenacting scenes from ABC’s hit political drama “Scandal.”

While standing at the podium in the press briefing room, RiRi pretended to be “Scandal” Press Secretary Abby Whelan (“#heyAbby,” she wrote), and posed with her pals including BFFs Melissa Forde and Jenn Rosales in the West Wing.

“West Wing Posse!! We wanna be O.P.A. so bad!!! #DayAtTheWhiteHouse,” she said.

With purse in hand, the fashionista stood at a payphone and channeled Kerry Washington’s well-dressed character Olivia Pope.

“CYRUS!!! LET ME IN!!” #DayAtTheWhiteHouse,” she said, referring to Cyrus Beene (played by Jeff Perry), and also shouted out Tony Goldwyn’s character President Fitzgerald Grant (“Fitz, darling…”).

The real Olivia Pope, Kerry Washington, approved, retweeting a photo and writing, “True #gladiators.”

Later today, Rihanna will salute the nation’s veterans by performing at “The Concert for Valor” at the National Mall. Other performers include Eminem, Bruce Springsteen, Metallica, and Carrie Underwood.
