The Noise, otherwise known as Rihanna, took centre-stage on Saturday Night Live earlier tonight, giving her première performances of new singles ‘Only Girl’ and ‘What’s My Name’.

What’s My Name
And there, my friends, you see why we don’t spare Ms. Fenty around these sides – at all. Both performances, if they could even be called that, were hot burning messes. Particularly ‘Only Girl’, where the host rudely forgot to introduce Rihanna’s nose and Aututone as featured guests.
‘What’s My Name’, while marginally better, still sounded like construction noise – between her ear-drum slaying vocals and the busier than needed band. McFenty gets two gold stickers for trying to get her faux-‘Rude Boy’ on with the choreography, though. Yet, she still had me splashing engine oil at my screen in hope that she’d stop looking so damn stiff.
Sigh. Another case, point, example of why models should stick to modelling.
Randomness: It’s pretty much a cert that Rihanna could not have made it in the 90’s. She’s a beacon of the 00’s ‘image era’. Looks over talent, all day, everyday. Can you imagine her on the Apollo stage? Or the Wendy Williams radio show? Eaten alive.
