  • I n F a m o u s l y C o o L

    …She just owned Britney.

  • treme

    She looks like a clown.

  • licorice

    i wish she’d get a new wig.

  • Tick Tock

    Rihanna is very cute but she makes herself look way older with the red hair.

  • I n F a m o u s l y C o o L

    …Britney sure enjoys being used. ahahahahahahaha

  • 4B

    Rihanna just own Britney on stage. she looks so un comfortable and old next to Rihanna. Por Briney she is trying to reclaim her glory day which is why she is working with the It girls.

  • RIRI is super cute

    Riri is super cute and sexy but not trashy in this boyish look.
    She has a very cute face but like the long hair better on her…..still super cute

  • SweetLips

    Wow. She looks like a 40 year old instead of a 23 year old. Why can’t she go back to the “Umberella” era look?

  • Kels

    I’m surprised, usually Rihanna looks very slutty and like she’s trying too hard with fashion, but she looks very clean, classy, and mature here. The red hair actually looks good on her in these pics.

  • Jasmine

    rihanna or reba mcentire?

  • H.

    Overexposed ho

  • Pepsi

    Rihanna or Ronald McDonald?

  • minty fresh

    Her music is generic and forgettable and it saddens me that so many girls look up to her because she is all about sex. There is nothing else to her. If she didn’t luck out with this music career she would be selling herself on the streets of Vegas instead of performing there.

  • bb

    aw..she looks good! stop haten tho

  • Wow!

    Wow! She looks so old.

  • Lalalove

    She’s so beautiful but she just blends in with the wall and carpet. Good thing she has that loud hair.

  • Anna

  • lilia mazunina

    I SEE SOME FEATURES OF WHITNEY HOUSTON (I MEAN FACE EXPRESSION). I LIKE IT!!!

  • keke rhymes wit ri ri

    Her hair and make-up could’ve been better, but I’m feelin tha outfit. It’s really 1920s-ish, really ”The Great Gatsby” character Jordan Baker-ish, but in a 2011 modern style complimented by tha long open-slit in tha blouse. Damn, I should be a paid fashion critic tha way I’m judgin her outfit. Joan Rivers give me a call @123-456-7890, so I can receive ma fashion police badge, I’ll be waiting. JaJa, but on tha real tho, Rih this outfit was nyce on you, I’m not surprised, you always look good in your linens and threads.

  • JustINkase

    yea I agree with ‘keke rhymes wit ri ri’, her make up and hair could’ve been A LOT better. As far as her outfit goes, it looks really simple to me, and safe for the event.

  • TAMSEN

    SHE USUALLY GLOWS NATURALLY IN ALL HER PHOTOS, BUT I DON’T SEE IT HERE. IT’S PROBABLY THE MAKE UPAND THAT HAIRSTYLE RUINING HER GLOW, IDK.

  • Amazed

    RiRi looks very nice here.

    You continue doing what your doing girl and make the money while you still can. The haters will always hide behind their computer screens putting you down with their sad lives.

  • tal

    stunningggggg

  • lully

    This haircut is so bad. She looks like she is 48.

  • http://justjared.buzznet.com Deborah

    This is true. Rihanna looks gorgeous, as she always does, but her new music is nothing but generic. she has simply followed the trend because her last album, which was fantastic did not do well, despite its originality. I like all the tracks released from LOUD, but they had to grow on me. They were just so unlike Rihanna. Which is why she won radio artist, because her music is now just standard RnB music, and nothing special like Rated R.

  • Junior in Jamaica

    Some of you tarts don’t know beauty when you see it.

    This young Miss looks old? Seriously…

  • Dieter

    Jared – I just came on the ass of her’s !!!!

  • Andre
