Dave Matthews, of Dave Matthews band fame, thought he'd never make his own show when his bicycle tyre punctured but he hadn't counted on a helpful fan.
In a surreal set of circumstances, Dave Matthews Band fan Emily Kraus was driving along with her boyfriend through Pennsylvania. The pair were running a little late to the concert of their favourite rock band yet still stopped to help out an all-too-familiar-looking hitchhiker.

Twig, glass, stone; whatever it was the gave Dave a flat was quickly forgotten as the singer realised he was stranded and risked missing his own show. Being good-hearted citizens, Kraus and her boyfriend pulled over to help the stranger, but began to quickly realise that he wasn't any old grizzled, slightly sweaty hitchhiker.

Many a second eyebrow was also raised, when they saw that the title of the duet was ‘Nobodies Business.’ English language aficionados and domestic abuse experts alike were up in arms at the news, though Rihanna remains both defiant and unapologetic over it.
As for the music, so far, we have had the track ‘Diamonds,’ to give a taster of what to expect on Unapologetic. ‘Diamonds’ has already spent four weeks in the chart, having peaked at number two, which bodes well for album number seven from Rihanna.
