Rihanna has shown a more sensitive and emotional side after breaking down in tears during a recent tour show in Lille, France.

The Bajan songstress was performing in the French city as part of her 'Diamonds' world tour and, after belting out her hit single 'Stay', she found herself overcome with emotion and got a little teary-eyed on stage.

While her loyal fans screamed and cheered once 'Stay' had finished, RiRi - who appeared to be wearing a sparkly jumpsuit - began crying and could barely bring herself to speak to the crowd through her sudden tears, in what was a pretty touching moment for the star.

Rihanna then found her voice and made sure to thank the crowd at the Lille stadium for their support and love.

"Thank you so much... Y'all make me so happy, this is everything that matters to me," Rihanna was heard saying in a video from the evening uploaded by a fan.

"And to stand here and feel the love in this room throughout this entire tour…It's coming to the end of the tour and it's sad. I hate saying 'Goodbye.' You guys showed me so much love in this room tonight. I love you guys."

RiRi, 25, has enjoyed an eventful world tour during the past few months and, more recently, she joined her mentor Jay-Z on stage at London's Wireless festival, so it's no surprise that the singer is feeling thankful.
