We went to Desert Trip last weekend, and loved all of it, especially Sir Paul McCartney's glorious performance. And while it was hard to believe that Oldchella's Weekend 2 could get any did!

On Saturday night Rihanna herself joined Macca on stage to sing "FourFiveSeconds," last year's hit that was also co-written, produced and performed by Kanye West. It's a beautiful song, and Rihanna crushes it, as per usual, in both her vocals and sartorial choice.

I'll never forget the night I got to be front row to see Paul McCartney and then Rihanna came on stage dressed as Bobby Brown. #DesertTrip

As Desert Sun reporter Bruce Fessier noted, Macca introduced Rihanna by saying, "We finally found someone under 50." Good one, dad!

Paul has been making the most of his time in the desert; he played an intimate show at Pappy & Harriet's earlier this week. He may be 74 (damn!!) but he's still full of surprises!
