Rihanna is hoping to launch Cheryl Cole's career in the US.

The 'Umbrella' singer has pledged to offer the Girls Aloud star - who recently launched her solo career - a spot supporting her on her American tour next year.

Rihanna - who, like Cheryl has worked with Black Eyed Peas singer will.i.am on her latest album 'Rated R' - said: "Cheryl is cute and incredible. I think I could help break her in the US. She'd wow them - I'd love to have her on tour, in Europe or America."

'Fight For This Love' singer Cheryl has crossed paths with Rihanna several times in recent weeks.

Rihanna performed on UK TV talent show 'The X Factor', on which Cheryl is a judge, and also appeared as guest performer on a forthcoming show dedicated to the singer entitled 'Cheryl Cole's Night In'.

Rihanna, 21, also revealed she would love to play next year's Glastonbury Festival, following in the footsteps of her mentor Jay-Z who performed at the world famous music event in the summer of 2008.

She said: "My tour is going to be a huge production. I would love to play Glastonbury. Even if it's not headlining, but my tour stars in the spring so it may clash."

Rihanna's 'Rated R' European tour will start in Belgium next April and visit the Netherlands, Germany and Switzerland before she performs nine dates in the UK.
