Rihanna clung onto the number one spot on the UK singles chart yesterday and celebrated with an energetic performance of her hit single on the X Factor results show.

The pop star gave a lively performance of her number one single, We Found Love, featuring Calvin Harris which hasn’t been out of the top three since its release on September 22nd. The track is the lead single off the Barbadian singer’s forthcoming new album Talk That Talk.

As is often the case with Rihanna, controversy is something the singer seems to court. While previous performances on the X Factor from Rihanna have prompted criticism due to her risqué choice of outfit, last night’s tartan dress saw her cover up more so than on previous outings on the show, however it was her choice of footwear which was making the headlines in this morning’s papers.

While to the millions of viewers watching from home, Rihanna’s footwear would have gone unnoticed, but some eagle-eyed studio audience members noticed that the singer’s trainers had some rude words scrawled in tippex, mostly notably the words “F*** off” branded on her shoes close to the base of the trainer.

As well as the naughty shoes, Rihanna also prompted a lot of noise on twitter over her badly disguised miming during parts of her performance on the X Factor. Did you see Rihanna singing We Found Love on last night’s show? Let us know your thoughts on the miming and those trainers!
