Rihanna caused chaos on the set of Simon Cowell’s U.K. TV show The X Factor on Sunday night after her dancers started a food fight following her performance.
The star sang her latest single Only Girl (In The World) on the talent show and a table full of sweet treats was set up especially for her appearance.

Her dancers began throwing cakes around after the song had ended, prompting Rihanna to joke, “It’s fun! I want some, it tastes good!”

But the food fight caused a headache for the show’s bosses, who had just a small commercial break to clear up the mess.

Cowell’s pop star pal Sinitta, who was in the audience, told her followers on Twitter.com, “The stage is covered in cake, cream, cupcakes!!! Hahaha they are slipping all over trying to clean it up in time!! One minute to get the gunk off! I don’t think they’ll do it!”

However, the show resumed on schedule – with a perfectly clean stage.
