Rihanna: 'American Idol' Rock Star Performance!

Clad in a sexy custom-made catsuit, Rihanna performs her new song “Rockstar 101″ on the results show of American Idol on Wednesday (April 7) in Los Angeles.

The 22-year-old admitted to Ryan Seacrest that she is dating LA Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp. She shared, “He is my boyfriend and yeah, it’s new and fun. It’s nothing too serious. I don’t want anything that’s going to take up so much of my energy and time in a bad way. I just wanna have fun, and that’s what it’s about.”

    Absolutely atrocious! An absolutely tuneless dirge. The ‘real’ guitarist should hang his head in shame to have had anything to do with that heap of c**p! Come on America, stop being taken in by this rubbish. What with the teeny-bop show the other week (Smiley Virus and the other plastic teens), Usher showing that he may be a nice guy but he just can’t hack it. And who on earth was that Jason whatever his surname is. Weak voice and a poor MJ imitation.

    Sorry she has NO TALENT, she’s not even near to be called “talented”

  • SayWhat?

    Love u RiRi. Bad to the bone! The audience loved her!

    Jeez, when is the 15minutes of this talentless imposter end? And Simon Cowell, you are loosing credibility. To have the talented AI contestants listen to Rihanna’s crap is an insult. And are there really people who buy her music? Oh I forgot, they produce everything for her in the studio with digital technology.People who like her, should just buy pictures of her, but any money spent buying her music is wasted. Roll on the day Rihanna disappears completely. And those who still think she can sing, really need hearing aid.

    I think the cat suit is tacky, but she did look great in it. But what’s with the broken record, “Baby, I’m a rockstar!” Um no, you’re a pop singer who is trying to diversify a little. Go back to pop! Her voice is suited better for pop… I don’t think she’s a bad singer, but she did butcher the vocals in this song, and she faked playing the guitar. Big mistake. It’s an insult to rockstars who actually do sing and play the guitar. Ugh.

    @LadyGagaRihannaMadonna: Record sales don’t dictate talent, dummy. I love how people like you always try to back up why an artist is good by mentioning how high they are on the charts, how many albums they sold, how many awards they won. Milli Vanilli, Vanilla Ice and MC Hammer all sold millions and millions of albums. Look where they are now. And they won’t be remembered for their great contributions to music, they will only serve as cautionary tales of fleeting fame. Also, my post was about why Rihanna shouldn’t pretend to play an instrument when she doesn’t, not why her performance sucked. Just so you know, Prince was also known to sign pretty but talentless girls (Vanity, Apollonia) whom he could easily market for quick success before they disappeared of the radar, too. Let me know how relevant Rihanna is 5 years from now.

    It wasnt as bad as it could have been. It was actually kind of enjoyable, to a point.

    However, extremely disappointed slash had anything to do with this. How the mighty have fallen…

    And a mockery what with her air guitaring a real guitar, she didnt even bother to actually touch it. I wonder when Rihannas arrogance will come back to bite her in the

    I do like Rih, but I am beginning to wonder why.

    She cannot sing live. She’s only famous because of her look. Pathetic you people.
