The 'We Found Love' star signed autographs and chatted with young fans out in Los Angeles this week.

Rihanna arrived back into Los Angeles yesterday following her recent trip to Japan and stopped to meet and greet some of her youngest fans after landing.

The 'You Da One' singer was pictured stopping to sign autographs and pose for pictures with fans in Beverley Hills, Los Angeles on Monday (20th August), and took time to talk to some of her younger fans while out enjoying the California sunshine.

Rihanna's trip to Tokyo, Japan at the end of last week saw her playing Summer Sonic Festival 2012 in Osaka on Sunday night (19th August), which the 'Where Have You Been' singer later described as her favourite trip to Japan, before he return stateside this week.

Over the past month Rihanna has travelled across the world with a holiday in the Mediterranean, a trip back home to Barbados to film Oprah's Next Chapter, and her most recent trip to Japan and back to America.

Rihanna's interview with Oprah Winfrey aired in the US over the weekend and saw her opening up about her career, fame and her relationship with Chris Brown, who she revealed has become a "close friend" again and admitting she will probably always love him.

Earlier today some of the first information about Rihanna's upcoming seventh studio album emerged when songwriter Claude Kelly confirmed he is working on the record and promised some "stadium" anthems will be on the highly anticipated album.

Rihanna has yet to announced a release date for the follow-up to last year's 'Talk That Talk' but the record is currently expected to be out before the end of 2012.
