I normally don’t do Rihanna “live” performances, but I thought the band was kind of jamming on the 1 with this performance of “Rude Boy” on the Alan Carr show across the pond. Rihanna has on a lunch lady hair net — is that was passes for fashion these days? — and she simulates getting some with her microphone, but at the end of the performance, I got to say that she sounded ALRIGHT for her. I mean, this song has basically no more than 5 or 6 notes but this is the first time I didn’t immediately want to throw myself off a cliff after hearing her perform.
I’m mostly giving that up to the band, though it seems they missed their cue at the beginning cause the drummer was sitting there like…”Oh, do I play NOW?” HA!
I really can’t with that fancy Bajan Aunt Jemima get-up though, LOL. Did you know she’s talking about putting out a new album already — approximately this summer. It’s just been four short months since her last one came out, but she wants lighter, edgier fare this time around. *shrugs*
