Dressed in all black everything, including a pair of goggle shades that reminds us of a villain in ‘Sailor Moon’, Rihanna joined Jay-Z onstage at BBC Radio 1′s Hackney Weekend in London last night (June 23).
Entering together through a white light positioned at the center of the stage, The Goat Whisperer and Hovito kicked off his career-spanning headlining set with “Run This Town” to deafening screams.
Clearly not the best live vocalist, RiRi delivered the song’s chorus in a raw and rough billy goat grunt that enhanced the thugged out persona she’s been trying to impose on us lately. Contrived or not, her “I don’t give a fuck” demeanor definitely plays a role in why fans love her. Hell, I even stanned out when she threw up the roc.
Check out the performance below along with flicks of Rihanna leaving her London hotel earlier in the day.
The Barbadian beauty is due to make her second appearance at the festival tonight.
