But Rihanna was the picture of respectability as she paid a visit to her favourite restaurant, Giorgio Baldi in Los Angeles on Wednesday night.
Dressed in a peach blazer over a buttoned white shirt and blue jeans, the 25-year-old was almost unrecognisable.
Better known for her raunchy stage performances and her less-is-more approach to clothing, the Jump singer looked elegant and demure on her evening outing.

With her shirt fastened to the top button and tucked into the waistband of her jeans, the only skin on display was that of her hands and feet - which is at odds with her usual style.
Recent outfits include a camouflage print jump suit, worn without a bra and split nearly to the naval, and a totally sheer black dress - again worn without a bra.
This time however, Rihanna reminded fellow diners of her natural beauty as she applied her new conservative approach to her make-up.
The star wore a hint of brown eyeshadow and a dash of nude lipgloss to subtly enhance her flawless features - and even her nails were low key, painted pale pink to match her jacket.

Even her ubiquitous gold bling was absent, replaced instead by a few silver rings which she matched to a pair of simple diamond studs.
And gone were the high-top sneakers and chunky boots.
Instead, Barbados born Rihanna kept her look sleek with simple black strappy heels.
The six-time Grammy winner, whose real name is Robyn Rihanna Fenty, jetted into Los Angeles on Tuesday evening after spending a few weeks in New York.
During her time in the Big Apple, the songstress attended the MTV VMA awards and caught up with her celebrity friends at an after party hosted by Diddy.

On the preceding Thursday, Rihanna was a guest at DJ Samantha Ronson's birthday bash - which she turned up to in familiarly near-naked style.
Before the party, Rihanna was seen visiting one of her other pals, new dad Kanye West.
The superstars were spotting holding a meeting at the plush Mercer Hotel in the Soho area, but left separately.
The Battleship actress is next scheduled to take her Diamonds World Tour to the Cotai Arena in Macau, China on September 13.
