Rihanna To Perform On ‘Saturday Night Live’

Published: Thursday 23rd Apr 2015 by Sam

Disarray may define Rihanna‘s current album campaign, but if there’s one thing that isn’t proving difficult for the star – it’s booking performances.

Following stints at the Grammys and iHeartRadio Music Awards, the 27-year-old has been named as the centre-piece of Saturday Night Live‘s latest performer line-up.

Details after the jump…

Hoping to rev-up interest in the chronically delayed ‘R8,’ the star will take to the stage on SNL’s May 16th finale episode. {Source}

No word on which of her project’s three “lead singles” she’ll be performing and, to be frank, we’re not fussed.

For her sake though, it’d be worthwhile if the actual album was out at that point, proving the scope to perform something other than what’s been heard thus far. Because, if she’s planning to keep pushing the songs she’s presently peddling, it’ll likely be a waste of time (and budget). Nothing (yet) boasts enough bite.

Your thoughts?

    Probably American Flopygen… But it might be another song… You never know… Could even be “James Joint”… and then she’ll blame the crack for her weak ass vocals…

    • I STAN(D) IN LINE FOR HYDROQUINONE) April 23, 2015

      another flop song, but she’s A pretty whorè still…

    • I STAN(D) IN LINE FOR HYDROQUINONE) April 23, 2015

      another flop song, but she’s A pretty whorè still….

  2. Slay_Hive April 23, 2015

    Lmao this b**** is DOOONNNNEEE!!! you’d think her album was already out with as much promo as she’s doing. F*** this h**!! Drop that album Queen Bey!!! We bored AF out here!!!!!!

    • Keri Qween April 23, 2015

      If you had a job instead of living off welfare you wouldn’t be so bored

      • Slay_Hive April 23, 2015

        If you had a real job and not flipping Burgers at McDonalds for $5 an hour, you could do what I do!!! Get on my level b****!!!!! *flips bang*

    • Rihboy April 23, 2015

      Posted up as usual lol. Hey there yet another Rihanna post where you are in the top 5 post. I know you ready for the album. Me too.

      • Slay_Hive April 23, 2015

        And you are bothered as usual. I’m only ready to see the sales. F*** her boring music. Get tf out of my reply box peasant.

    • Rihboy April 23, 2015

      Lol. I’m pretty sure you want more than sales. But whatever helps you sleep comfortably on your cot at night. You stay mounted to a Rihanna post with the same tired reads and think you big meech. Chile sit.

      • Slay_Hive April 23, 2015

        B**** shut the f*** up talking to me with your usual weak attempts at trying to shade and go take your anti-depressants and learn how to use spell check. Lmao I will do me regardless and you will have to learn to deal! Bye

      • Rihboy April 23, 2015

        Deal? As if your elementary shade moves me. Hiding behind bey doesn’t make you anything honey. You’re still s broke b****, You reside more on anything Rihanna than you do your own fave. Just to hate. Moreover you look more like a lowkey Stan having fun trying to think of the best insult you can conjure up. Like I said; sit.

      • Rihboy April 23, 2015

        A* (spellcheck) b1tch

      • Slay_Hive April 23, 2015

        Yes b**** D E A L!!! You are obviously pressed and bothered because you’re always bringing your salty ass in my reply box with your weak ass personal shots!! Its not my fault you’re making minimum wage putting cheap clothes on a hanger while I’m fabulous! 😉 I don’t have to hide behind Bey!! She is only my fave and I defend her and throw shade just like the rest of the “broke” b****** on here, including you! I comment more about my fave than anything and I will come to whatever post I choose. You do not pay any bills over here b****! I see I’ve pressed a button and I’m glad to know because I will go even harder now!!! Take those anti depressants, because you’re looking hella pressed and bothered. Which is usual. *Hands you a reclining chair and a muffle*

      • Slay_Hive April 23, 2015

        Also b**** “Moreover” is tired and lame find a new word. You overuse it. Spell check should help. Dumb b****!

  3. Dabeyhive April 23, 2015

    Flop…. She’s destroying her career slowly but surely…. 🙂

  4. Beyonslae April 23, 2015

    Poor Rihanna. It was good while it lasted. Bye girl!

    • I STAN(D) IN LINE FOR HYDROQUINONE) April 23, 2015

      her career is over

  5. BEYTHELEGEND April 23, 2015

    Patiently waiting for #Jackie to drop MAY 4TH! Everyone go support Cici! #Beyhive let’s support Ciara, she always shows love and support to our QUEEN!

    • fatusankoh April 23, 2015

      Sure I will support Cici you right she always show love for bey

      • Rihboy April 23, 2015

        She needs the hive that’s why. If the tables were turnt im sure she wouldn’t say. The samething about bey. Nor do I even think beyonce notices Ciara is still in the running.

      • red wine April 24, 2015

        proving your not a real beyonce stan because ci ci talked about beyonce in the past that’s why she dont have a career fake stan

  6. Mark111 April 23, 2015

    I hope she drops it next week. But heck, we don’t even know the name of the album. I’m loving this era, she even the the haters wanting the album to drop. lol
    But yea, BBHMM and AO, this would boots both up.

    • Guess April 23, 2015

      Totally. AO might jump back into the itunes 100, or maybe into the low 80’s on billboard.

  7. Slay_Hive April 23, 2015

    • Slay_Hive April 23, 2015

      B**** are you slow?!!! You’ve already been clocked for that. GW and SOTS were not official singles released to iTunes or radio boo boo. They were for promotional reasons (Pepsi & H&M) and were LEAKED in full to settle the fans thirst for new music while she was finishing her album AND touring. B**** Rihanna is FLOPPING with three official singles, talking about her album in 100 magazine covers and all of this promo!!!! Girl STFD!!! THE QUEEN COMING TO SLAY THIS B**** TO PIECES!!!!! CONTINUING HA LEGACY OF SENDING THESE H*** PACKING TO IRRELEVANTVILLE!!!! LMAOOOOO

    #UnderPressureeeeeeeeee 😀 😀

  14. Blue Ivy Rodriguez April 23, 2015

    the hive can’t wait to stream the performance, we all know they cannot afford basic cable. Rihanna has them pressed for the album, I swear they weren’t even this excited for their faves porno

    • The Beysus Impact April 23, 2015

      What porno??? 😀 I think you mean PROMO hun…

    • RihYonce April 23, 2015

      But can afford to actually buy album , I love Rihanna but let’s not go there

  15. MyJuiceBoxWet April 23, 2015

    Lol queen Bey snatched this b**** outta the game as of 12/13/13

  16. Slay_Hive April 23, 2015

    ArtPop teas….

    • Keri Qween April 23, 2015

      What about 4closure?

      • metzo April 23, 2015

        Are you talking about the same album that went platinum in several countries, got critical acclaim and won a Grammy? Yeah that was a great album and definitely not as chronically delayed due to confusion of direction.

    • Anastasia Beaverhousen (aka T.I.T.S.) April 23, 2015

      But if you’re gonna troll you may wanna change you e-mail address @Myjuicywetbox and @’slay_hive'(who you are not). LMAO!

  17. datreddone23 April 23, 2015

    Yassss Missy Elliot is living for Rihs James Joint on Twitter! Rih just keeps getting praised ! I live!

  18. datreddone23 April 23, 2015

    Lol at the same tired Hive members perched on a Rih post. How many comments are y’all gunna leave? Pressed and pathetic…..

    • ARC April 23, 2015

      Don’t act like the Gavy aren’t sitting on here waiting for the next Beyonce post. There is a reason Beyonce’s posts get the most comments on this site. booboo

      • Khan-Gay West April 23, 2015

        Sadly, they don’t! Y’all flock to the Rih posts soon as their submitted. It’s like y’all are subscribed by email or text message as soon as a Rih post goes up. And Rihanna posts always have the most comments cause the H** and all the lessor fanbases join together and team up. It’s very cute though. And TGJ already made their post about Rihanna having had the most visited post on their site. Beyonce is drying out hanging on to that 2 year old album. Maybe next year?

  19. Slay_Hive April 23, 2015

    If 45s “smashed” WW why hasn’t she released the album yet? Usually when she “smashes” the album comes soon after!.
    That contrived honky tonk mess didn’t impact pop culture like SLAY in Love. That boring mess is already forgotten about. HaHaHa

    • datreddone23 April 23, 2015

      But its close to selling more then DIL already lol I wonder what the overall sales are worldwide??? lmao

      • Keri Qween April 23, 2015

        Fourfive is nearing 2x platinum

        W**** in love sold 2.8 million after over a year and its the only single the h/I/v can brag about from the porno album kkii

      • Slay_Hive April 23, 2015

        Drunk in Love was released as a single nearly a week after Beyonce already released the album! Everyone bought the Double Platinum album and its STILL 3x Platinum. An urban song at that!!! Girl BYYYEEE! When will Rihanna release an album first? #SinglesArtist

      • Khan-Gay West April 23, 2015

        Beyonce didn’t release any singles first because she knew they would flop. (Remember the singles from ‘4’)? Instead she force fed that non creative a$$ album down your thirsty throats. With no option to buy select songs you HAD to buy the album as a whole. Remember when Drunk in Love was #2 for just ONE week and then it slipped down the charts like a whale on a waterslide? Rihanna’s singles are already inches away from outperforming all of Bey’s last singles without needing 2 years to do so. But everybody already knew that

    • datreddone23 April 23, 2015

      Those front loaded sales did not help with longetivity seeing as Beyonce stalled at 3.8 million worldwide with horrible single sales.

      • Slay_Hive April 23, 2015

        The album topped Billboard 200 for THREE weeks though. with the following two weeks selling over 300k. How is that frontloaded b****? The album sold Five Million WW with four plartinum singles. She sold more than UNA and TTT! STAWP!

      • The Beysus Impact April 23, 2015

        5 mill Hun…

      • MADDIE ZIEGLER STAN April 23, 2015

        5 million? Lol the inflation

      • The Beysus Impact April 23, 2015

        No the inflation is thinking Rihbolas sold 240 mill records…

      • datreddone23 April 23, 2015

        I never said 240 million but multiple other sources have including her label. We all know that she’s at least sold over 180 million records. Quite a feat for a 27 year old island girl without a father in the industry or girl group to provide a foundation!

  20. datreddone23 April 23, 2015

    Rih was just spotted with Kuk Harrel and her manager in the studio! Praying to god she’s done recording finally!

    • Keri Qween April 23, 2015

      As long as she doesn’t release it exudively to that flop tidal site

      Don’t do it Right

      Camel and his wife trying to set you up

  21. AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig April 23, 2015

    Maybe she will do an SNL skit while she’s there.

    • datreddone23 April 23, 2015

      Right hopefully she will! Her Shy Ronnie skits were hilarious! She’s a way better natural actress then Bey could ever be! Must be horrible to have almost everything in the world except personality! Lol

      • AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig April 23, 2015

        Come Correct when you type my faves name. LOL when I shade Rihanna, you will be well aware of it 😉

      • The Beysus Impact April 23, 2015

        IKR!!! That Razzie award was so deserving!!! *slow claps*

      • Slay_Hive April 23, 2015

        How do you know she’s a better actress than Beyonce when she won her a razzie for her first cameo and has only done voice over in an animation film? Bitxh check Beyonce’s resume. No one is hiring Rihanna for acting roles. Lmaooo not you clinging to a damn SNL skit. I cant !

    • datreddone23 April 23, 2015

      Like I said ” natural” actress…Rih has been offered many roles so please sit! Her boxoffice catalogue is solidified seeing as Home has already made triple its budget!

      • AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig April 23, 2015

        Lame af, I was checking 4 a skit so I could have me a good KII. Rihanna couldn’t act even if someone punched her in the face with a golden globe and told her to cry on camera.

      • Slay_Hive April 23, 2015

        How the hell do you know if she’s an natural actress if she only has one role girl? A role she won a razzie for. Home’s success had nothing to do with Rihanna. It is an animation film and they usually do well. LaQuisha from your hood could have done the voice of the character and it still would have succeeded. The navy is so damn delusional.

      • datreddone23 April 23, 2015

        Home was built around Rihannas name the movie did well because of her

      • Slay_Hive April 23, 2015

        Girl STFU! those little kids don’t give a damn about Rihanna. It is a car too. Let’s see her in a serious role and then holler back at me. Lol

  22. Nicky April 23, 2015

    Lmaoooooo@ slay hive. Clearly beyonce didn’t release an album first. Grown woman which she performed everywhere and bow down

    The lies and self drag lmaoooooooooooooooo!

    But it’s okay. At least she released 20 videos. Lmaooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • The Beysus Impact April 23, 2015

      But where were they on iTunes or the radio??? They were simply added to the tour and used in adverts… Now sit the f*** dooooown!!!

    • Tyler Makivelli April 23, 2015

      Ummm Grown Woman wasnt an official single released to radio like FourFiveForeheads, American Flopygen, or BBHMM….and Bow Down was a buzz track. So sit!

    • Slay_Hive April 23, 2015

      B**** Grown Woman was performed a few times on her TOUR!! Not the Grammy’s, Jimmy Kimmel, IHeart Radio, and SNL!!! You are dragging yourself girl! Those were not official singles hun! Lmaooo
      I’m not going to even respond to that Bow Down mess. Your struggle is real babe.

  23. #JACKIE April 23, 2015

    Still scared to release that album I see! Flop coconut head ass b**** kii

  24. Tyler Makivelli April 23, 2015

    YAWN. On to the next one! Ciara this is your chance to make a huge comeback. Tinashe the coast is clear for you too #RLATE

  25. datreddone23 April 23, 2015

    She probably will give them their best ratings this season as she did with Jimmy Kimmel. I see they saved thier finale for the Queen!

  26. diabetes unbothered April 23, 2015

    This is rihanna BIONIC ERA lol rihanna is releasing rlea singles, not just buzz singles like beydid yet nothing is catching. Four flopped seconds and bbhmm both singles flopped. That interlude song which we also know is on the album is str8 garbage. The only 2 songs rihanna has that might be remembered years from now is we found love and stay this album will not even go plat

    • Anastasia Beaverhousen (aka T.I.T.S.) April 23, 2015

      And what will you be remembered for??

      You have bigger concerns (pun intended).

      The only things you should be staning for is @leancuisine and @treadmills.

      You picture should be rated V= Vomit..

  27. diabetes unbothered April 23, 2015

    Rihanna doesn’t have the full and healthy career that Beyonce has. I always knew she couldn’t afford to go 3 years with no album lol she actually thinks James blunt or whatever its called is a good song, lol ki

  28. kingbeybitch April 23, 2015

    May 16thh Lool I think she’s gonna drop the album in June

  29. kingbeybitch April 23, 2015

    Imagine if R8 and the joint album both dropped on ITunes the same day Lool huntyyy the meltdowns would be REALLLL

  30. datreddone23 April 23, 2015

    Death at the Hive occupying this post more then their faves post right beneath!

    ‘s in a couple weeks. we’ll see what…

    everybody gonna watch. fills quota. and good or bad… it’s something. @sam look ahead… “paycheck”. you can smoke some on the SUNday. 😀

  32. TheElusiveLamb April 23, 2015

    I’m pretty sure this performance will be funniest skit of the night and possibly any of the SNL skits considering how her live “vocals” are parodies of those engineered goat yodels she and bitter Marsha call vocals… #SOSFindHerTalent

  33. Anastasia Beaverhousen (aka T.I.T.S.) April 23, 2015

    I’m not sure what direction Rihanna and her team are going in this round.

    However, I will be perched to see what she gonna do on SNL.

  34. TheElusiveLamb April 23, 2015

    Lol Marshmallow up there getting pressed with his soft ass. Hush before the Hive drags you by the glue residue that is barely holding your synthetic wig (AGAIN).

    • Blue Ivy Rodriguez April 23, 2015

      Girl don’t drag rih too bad, you’re one of the only Slayriah stans I like and I’m excited bother (Slayriah) and rih. Could you imagine Mariah doing a dancehall themed single? They love her in jamaica

      • TheElusiveLamb April 23, 2015

        You know I LOVE you and adore Riri, but as long as Moody Mandy continues to be pressed over Mariah and comment bitterly…. i apologize to you and LB ahead of time love.

  35. No favs, just here for the music April 23, 2015

    I just REALLY hope it’s not AO again -_-

    • TheElusiveLamb April 23, 2015

      But T.I.T.S, it’s all the old lady’s fault. She acts like talking about Mariah is going to get the government to add a few more dollars on her EBT card. Tell Bitter Malaysia to keep M-I-M-I off his power bottom lips and stay delusional on the thing that some code name Rihanna’s “talent”.

      • Anastasia Beaverhousen (aka T.I.T.S.) April 23, 2015

        Girl I hear you. It’s just unfortunate almost every post comes to this.


      • TheElusiveLamb April 23, 2015

        I must admit, it is becoming very tiring.
