Rihanna Rings in the New Year

Rihanna performs in her New Year’s party concert at the Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates on Friday (January 1).

The 21-year-old Bajan beauty rocked the crowd and shouted, “Abu Dhabi” numerous times to stir everyone up. She performed all of her hit songs, ranging from, “Don’t Stop The Music”, “Hate That I Love You”, and “SOS”, among many others. She closed out the show with her huge hit, “Umbrella”. Unfortunately, she didn’t come back out for an encore.

  • canuck

    She needs a new hair colour.
    Blonde does not suit her.

  • starlissa

    This is pretty covered up for Rihanna.

  • Hyde

    Still looks like a tranny with tits.

    Is that a wig?

    That thing on her head ain’t cute.

  • jeeves
  • jeeves

    It’s almost flying off her head.
    They had to pin it pretty tight.

  • Janet

    I hope Jared reads this…she’s not Bajan, she’s from Barbados! Please stop calling her that.
    Thanks!

  • Janet

    I take it back! I take it back! Turns out you can call her that. It may be her dialect!
    So sorry.

  • Tanda

    @jazz: That was PRERECORDED, deary!

  • yummy

    She always show her boobs.:-)

  • SHO

    Rihanna usually pre-records which is good for the audience.
    She is not the best live.

  • lmao
  • barbie

    first of all to all the rihanna haters. keep on hatin cuz you qivin her more press and more motivation to do better this new year. second off its not a wiq or a weave. her sides are too short for it to be a weave or wig. and also the top of her head is natural because i remember when she first came her hair was real and long.

  • Audi

    Unfortunately the dramatic pics don’t match the performance. You’d think she was singing her heart out but it’s never the case.

  • truly

    @barbie: it’s definitely a wig or weave. no one’s hair grows that fast in a few weeks. i don’t consider a negative opinion hating but if you want to call it that and it gives her motivation to improve her music and function like a real artist, then props to the haters though they’re not the ones giving her press. it’s the blog getting paid to post about her that does that.

  • YUCK

    SHE LOOKS LIKE A TRANNY WITH A PERM.

  • YUCK

    Y…UCK…

  • g-spot

    Looks like X-Tina meets Dr. Seuss.

    @Janet:

    Err, Jared is right, Bajan is the shortened version of Barbadian – that is someone from Barbados. And I should know as I am from the Caribbean, and has visited Barbados several times.

  • dianad1968

    ^^^I should also mention that even Barbadians refer to themselves as “Bajans”.The word is NOT derogatory.

  • tal

    stuning!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • ????????

    Why was Chris Brown prosecuted if Charlie Sheen gets off for abusing his wife? Why didn’t Elin get book for domestic violence for beating Tiger Woods with a golf club?
    Apparently you can beat abuse women, Charlie Sheen does and have been getting away with it for years.

  • xxx

    Great hair… ahem.

  • Nina

    Great glued in weave.

  • haterofhaters

    YOU HATERS R ALL JEALOUS BITCHES, WHAT HAVE U SLAGS ACHIEVED BY 21, NOTHIN COMPARED 2 HER, PISS OFF AND LEAVE HER ALONE

  • =Logan=

    love this girl! time for her to change her hair color though.

  • calm down

    @ haterofhaters WHY DO YOU RIHANNA FANS GET SO ANGRY WHEN SOMEONE DISSES HER!!! ????? PEOPLE HAVE A RIGHT TO AN OPINION YOU DONT HAVE TO AGREE WID THEM! DUMBASSES!

  • LA

    @haterofhaters: She hasn’t achieved anything. She’s just a cute face that lip syncs and uneducated to boot. She should go back to school instead of out every night for a photo-op.

  • Lisa_L

    I heard she got a boatload of money to do that. She looks very sexy!

  • Rihannafan1

    HATERS GET OFF THIS SITE, PEOPLE WHO HATE RIHANNA COME ON HERE!! WHAT IS THE POINT!!

    RIHANNA IS LOOKING SEXY HERE AS ALWAYS.. AND ITS NOT A WIG!!!!
    SHE HAS EXSTENTIONS IN:) SHE LOOKS GREAT HERE!!

  • Allie

    @Janet: You were right the first time Janet :). You can call her that, but people from Barbados find it offensive when not coming from another Barbadian.

  • sassy mama

    trashy hoe

  • Justice

    @Rihannafan1: This is not a fan site. We are all entitled to post here. If you only want to read gushy (and false), positive comments, go to a fan site or create your own. Glad to see people are recognizing her for what she is. Hope we see more talented artists profiled here in the New Year.

  • gaboi

    By the way she’s carrying on, you’d think she was Tina Turner. I guess it looks good for the photos. Too bad the girl has a weak voice.

  • enoughalready

    You know what’s funny? Looking at her you would think she was doing a A-List show but we all know the deal and that’s no hatin….Why is she singing all them old songs still without adding the new along with it? They did pay for a concert the least she could have dont was not just sing HARD, RTTT, RR the usual that she has trained for cause she dont rehearse!

  • Mya

    agree she has not achieved zero in her life. she looks like a 40 year old woman with a cute face and average body

  • Mya

    agree she has not achieved zero in her life. she looks like a 40 year old woman with a cute face and average body

  • hmm

    rihanna’s album are said to be doing great on some sites but i wonder if her label is paying persons to lie for her about this and also the ticket sales because if her album was doing that great she should have been singing songs from her new album not her good girl gone bad album.

  • jules
