The 'Diamonds' singer is said to be being linked up to headline this year's music event.

Rihanna has been linked to a potential headline spot at this year's Glastonbury Festival 2013.

The 'We Found Love' singer is rumoured to be in the running to take the top spot on the iconic Pyramid Stage for the final day of this year's music festival, being described as the "perfect choice" to round off the five-day musical event.

"She is the perfect choice," a source told the Daily Star this weekend. "Beyonce stole the show two years ago and there's no reason why Rihanna can't do the same.

"She's got a huge back catalogue and is undoubtedly the biggest female artist around at the moment, bar Adele."

The 'Where Have You Been' singer was quoted by Q back in 2011 as saying she would love to play Glastonbury, joking that her hit 'Umbrella' would be the "perfect song" for the often rain-heavy festival.

Glastonbury Festival took a year off in 2012 after Beyonce's headline performance in 2011, but is set to return again this coming June.

Rihanna's management has so far denied claims she is set to sign up as a headliner for Glastonbury Festival 2013.

This week Rihanna returned to the UK to launch her debut River Island fashion collection at London Fashion Week.
