Rihanna will receive five million pounds for turning on the Christmas lights at a London shopping centre.

The ‘We Found Love’ singer will help to kick off the festive season at Westfield in Stratford, East London, near the Olympic park and will also perform a mini-concert for her fans.

A source told The Sun newspaper:  “Rihanna’s thrilled. She knows it’s a big deal and is totally up for it – if it fits in with her schedule.”

For 5 million, we’d make time for it in our schedule, wouldn’t you think!?

“Westfield have had a great year due to the Olympics and want to fork out to celebrate.

“Even though the final contract is still being thrashed out, they’re prepared to pay up to £5million for her. They are expecting around 20,000 people to swamp the park.”

It was also revealed Rihanna was chosen over the Spice Girls, who came out of retirement to perform at the Olympics closing ceremony.

The insider added: “The Spice Girls were also discussed but Rihanna came out as the artist of choice.”

Myf Ryan, general manager for marketing at Westfield, said: “The Christmas light switch-on at Westfield Stratford City is one of the highlights of the festive calendar.

“This year we want to thank our loyal shoppers by giving them something they’ll never forget.”

 

Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux

Jennifer Aniston became emotional when she started talking about her fiance Justin Theroux on Chelsea Lately.

The ‘We’re the Millers’ actress gave her first post-engagement interview to her friend Chelsea Handler and got all teary when Chelsea gushed about what a great couple they are.

Chelsea said “He’s the greatest guy ever. You guys make the greatest couple ever.”

Jennifer admitted she was overwhelmed, saying: “I just got verklempt [Yiddish for overcome with emotion].”

Justin asked Jennifer to marry him on a romantic dinner date to celebrate his birthday at a New York City restaurant in August.

The surprise proposal – which took place just over a year after they started dating – occurred when the couple were dining at Greenwich Village restaurant Blue Hill.

Announcing the happy event, Justin’s publicist said: “Justin Theroux had an amazing birthday on Friday, receiving an extraordinary gift when his girlfriend, Jennifer Aniston, accepted his proposal of marriage.”

After the proposal, an “overwhelmed” Jennifer – who was previously married to Brad Pitt – called her close friends and family to share the good news.

A source said: “Just after Jen got engaged, she called all her friends and told them about it. She was so happy and said she loves the ring. I think she was overwhelmed and overjoyed by the size and beauty of it!”
