Rihanna escapes burning building

Rihanna brought the heat in London. The sizzling performer was among 300 people evacuated this week from a burning hotel due to an early morning fire in an elevator shaft. On Wednesday, the 24-year-old singer tweeted news of the fire to her 21 million Twitter followers, posting a picture of a fire engine and the caption: “Roamin da streets since 6am! Fyah in da telly.” The fire alarm was set off at 6:22 a.m. and 10 firefighters arrived to deal with the roaring flames on the seventh floor at the Corinthia Hotel. There were no injuries from the fire. This past Sunday, Rihanna performed at the outdoor Hackney Weekend concert. ~Graeme Mollison

    She needs to learn how to speak proper English. Twitter is not an excuse to sound illiterate
