Rihanna Gives Lap Dance to Uncomfortable Fan

Although she's not currently touring, old concert footage of Rihanna straddling a random fan onstage has surfaced online. In the brief YouTube clip, the singer has chosen a lucky guy to join her during the end of her performance. But instead of having him sing along, Rih pushes him down and climbs on top and gyrates on the young man, who doesn't seem to know what to do with his hands. As the pair descend below the stage, the singer seductively removes his glasses while he awkwardly throws up a rock sign. The footage appears to have been taken from…

With seven weeks on top, "Fancy" now matches the time spent on top by Adele's "Rolling in the Deep."  The only other women who've spent longer at #1 in the past ten years are Ke$ha, with "Tik Tok," Carly Rae Jepsen with "Call Me Maybe" and Lorde with "Royals"…
