Rihanna took Saturday Night Live by storm Saturday, May 5, 2012 as the show’s musical guest, while Eli Manning of the New York Giants played host. The Bajan singer, 24, and “Battleship” star performed her hits “Birthday Cake,” “Talk That Talk” and “Where Have You Been” for a crowded NYC audience.
Looking ever the vixen in thigh-high boots and barely there shorts, Rih Rih sang amidst a spider-web backdrop and live band. She was later joined by dancers who helped her move suggestively to her chart-topping hits.
Before last night’s performance, the singer made sure to send her ex and “Birthday Cake” collaborator Chris Brown a message for his b-day for all their fans to see on Twitter. “Happy Birthday @chrisbrown,” she wrote. Just a few months back Brown caused controversy when he attended Rihanna’s birthday party in secret. -danielle canada
