Rihanna: Shy Ronnie SNL Digital Short!

Rihanna sang in a hilarious SNL Digital Short co-starring with Andy Samberg as Shy Ronnie on Saturday (December 5).

The sketch really worked and was hilarious! It was taped yesterday evening, ahead of the live Saturday show.

Later in the live show, Rihanna performed two songs from her Rated R album, “Russian Roulette” and “Hard.”

  • Ocean

    The short was funny but her live singing performance blew.





  • chewie

    She’s does much better on tape than she does live. It’s the same with her videos.

  • yourlover
  • truly

    that was hilarious and i love how she sung it in that same tune she always uses. finally they put her monotone voice to good use.

  • Halo

    SNL did the unthinkable. They made Rihanna entertaining!

    She is a very butch looking chick.

    Any guy who can make Rihanna intentionally funny is a genius.

  • Snow

  • awesome

    @yourlover: “″ its funny bcuz a couple of days ago i was listening to the french version of this song called ”Au Plus Noire de la Nuit” from Anastasia. i LOVE it. what is it with evil characters in cartoons?! oh, n by the way, who’s this gay guy rite behind?… no offense

  • Cindi

    I enjoyed Andy Samberg NOT stupid Rihanna. Can she lose some weight!

  • tal

    love her so much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • kenzosh

    OK…Although I really liked Rihanna’s first couple of songs, and totally LOVED the song and video for Umbrella, when I saw her live, opening for Kanye about 2 years ago, I was not overly impressed. Then, with Disturbia, I felt she was going in a direction where her music was being overshadowed by the props. Although I have not listened much to her new album, this Shy Ronnie skit upped her show biz cred SIGNIFICANTLY in my eyes. Very WELL done!!!!

  • ROCK

    genialllllllll…………..muy gracioso………porque hay varios que no se cansan de escribir malas vibras…..algo les falta chicos……jajajajajaja……….ella es genial………cada vez mejora mas……:):):):):)

  • ali

    i think snl is just getting less funnier every week blake lively wasn’t a good host they should of just let rihanna host

  • John Belushi

    SNL is O V E R
    They are never funny anymore.
    Rhianna was horrible, so boring.
    Sometimes, she went off- key.
    SNL should close down, it’s done.
    There are so many comedians so much better than this group of

    Sorry, if the truth hurts.

  • Matt

    Her new songs are just not very good…which must be why theyre not catching on.

  • Fire Bomb

    go rihanna! love u

  • mia

    i cannot believe some people are saying that rihanna needs to lose weight. her body is great in general, but it is especially amazing for a pear shaped body. pear shaped bodies have some of the most difficult bodies to dress but she always looks awesome.

    i’m not even a rihanna fan, but a lot of women would love to have her body. it’s toned. it’s not like she has a huge gut or bat wing arms.

    this was the only part of the show i laughed mildly at…mostly the “speak up” part.

  • rated r sux

    Those were pre-recorded vocals. That song sounded better than anything on Rated R. That’s for sure.

  • rated r sux

    Her new album really sux. Her career might be ova.

  • Whoever

    @rated r sux:

    No it don’t and critics actually gave it rave reviews and I have been playing it for 3 weeks on repeat, including right now. She will have a slew of #1′s… Just watch.

  • Whoever

    Anyway…. that was funny!

  • ladybug

    She’s lip syncing on Russian Roulette, or the timing is slightly off on the video.

  • jolentini
  • g-girl

    Love it!

  • black beauty

    rihanna did an amazing job last night. i she hosts SNL one day

  • just me

    She sounded horrible on everything but the pre-recorded track.
    Glad SNL put her repetitive vocals to good effect. Very funny indeed!
