Rihanna unveils her new stage outfits... and guess what, there's not much of them

Bit of light bondage? Rihanna wears a sexy bondage-style outfit as she performs a S&M routine during her Loud tour in Paris's Palais Omnisports de Paris-Bercy

After being halfway into her Loud world tour, you couldn't blame Rihanna for getting tired of the same routines and outfits.

So as she took to the stage in Paris last night, it looks like she's added a few more costumes to her tour to freshen things up.

And as you would expect from Rihanna, they weren't exactly modest, conservative numbers.

The 23-year-old spiced things up in a leather corset-style leotard and furry pink handcuffs as she writhed on stage in an S&M-style routine with her male dancers.

During her set to accompany her January hit S&M, Rihanna takes the song quite literally as she is handcuffed to poles erected on the stage at the Palais Omnisports de Paris-Bercy.

As she sings the suggestive lyrics, she is joined by four male dancers who writhe all over her partially-clothed body.

And in another song, a trouser suit-clad Rihanna romps on top of a female dancer.

Her risqué show comes after the star tried to play down her raunchy moves, insisting they weren't that sexual.

She told Esquire magazine: 'At the end of a concert, I don't feel like I've been this sexy thing. Really, I don't even think about it.

'Unless it's a song that really calls for it, like Skin or S&M, or when I cover Darling Nikki. There's a section that's called Sex in the show, which is the obvious section for sexuality.

'Like, really? Honestly, even if it comes across sexual - it has to be a part of my subconscious thought. It's never deliberate in the rest of the show. I don't even really... I could see What's My Name? - the dancing is pretty sexy... Rude Boy.

'But I don't know. I guess people find different things sexy.'

Although Rihanna has a lot of young fans, she insists she never set out to be a role model.

She told Glamour recently: 'You know, like it's a piece of art, with all these toys and textures to play with. See, people ... they want me to be a role model just because of the life I lead. The things I say in my songs, they expect it of me, and [being a role model] became more of my job than I wanted it to be. But no, I just want to make music.'

The Barbadian star kicked off her Loud tour in Baltimore, Maryland in June, and is set to complete the 99-gig route in London in December.

She's already performed three gigs at London's O2 Arena, but it proved so popular, she added a further seven dates.

Meanwhile, the singer has reached a settlement with photographer David LaChapelle after he claimed she copied some of his photographs in her S&M video.

After he filed a lawsuit against Rihanna and her record label in January, seeking $1million, a New York court ruled in favour of LaChapelle.

His publicist said in a statement: 'David is happy with the settlement.'
