Rihanna suffered a rude awakening when she was one of 300 guests evacuated from a London hotel after a lift shaft caught fire.
The chart star tweeted a picture of a fire engine outside the hotel in Whitehall Place to her 23.5 million followers.
A London Fire Brigade spokesman said no one was injured in the blaze on Wednesday morning.
Barbadian star Rihanna told fans on Twitter: "Roamin da streets since 6am! Fyah in da telly".
The spokesman said the fire caused a small amount of damage to a lift on the 7th floor of the hotel.
Around 10 firefighters dealt with the incident after being called at 6.22am.
