RIHANNA looks like she`s just left a NELLY video shoot.
The crimson-barnetted singer sported a huge plaster on her neck as she ventured out in New York last night.
Coupled with her beaming grin, passers by would have been forgiven for thinking the bandage had been employed to conceal a love bite.
However, it was actually applied after another trip to the tattoo parlour - this time to touch-up an old inking.
Meanwhile, the Barbadian star`s granny has gone all CILLA BLACK on her young relative as she tries to set her up on a date with EMINEM.
Betty Kersin said: "Rihanna would make a suitable partner for Marshall. But he needs to enjoy life and not get carried away with any relationships at the moment.
"He`s so charming; he has always had adorable, beautiful blue eyes and this charming, wonderful smile."
