Rihanna Says She’d Only Do ‘American Idol’ If She Were “Bored”

Published: Friday 15th Sep 2017 by Sam

Rihanna was quite literally the belle of the Diamond Ball last night in New York City.

The Bajan star threw the charity gala, which was attended by Beyonce, Jay Z, and more, in support of her Clara Lionel Foundation.

When arriving on the red carpet, the 29-year-old was quizzed on whether or not she was take up a seat on American Idol.

As widely reported, ABC’s reboot of the singing contest is still looking for judges to join Katy Perry – who was paid an astonishing $25 million for her services.

RiRi’s response was characteristically witty.

Check out what she had to say below…

Whether intended or not, she threw a forest of shade.

Truth be told though, there are a few other reasons we could think of as to why she wouldn’t be the best pick to judge the vocals of others. But that’s neither here nor there, given who’s already signed on.

Your thoughts?

    Rihanna can outsing Katy and Rihanna is still to big to be doing American Idol, I agree with her “if she was bored” comment

      I agree, I saw both of them live and Rihanna is an underrated vocalist, I mean her rendition of Love The Way You Lie, Part II, on the Loud Tour gave me chills! Katy’s vocals only shine on a more acoustic register.

    RiRI is an Icon she is above sh*t like that. Let people like Katy do that. The only person I liked doing stuff like that was JLO but other then that it’s for Stars trying to make a come back. Britney should have never done it either she is a icon.

    Its funny….Rihanna lil stint on the Voice was better than most vocalists better than her who appeared on the show.

    And its funny how you decided to try and shade Rihanna’s vocals yet Jennifer Lopez has sat in that chair for at least 5 seasons and you never had s*** to say!

    Love on the Brain performance slayed almost every other pop girl out here! Those vocals were 🔥 and on point she proved that she can sing and her voice on radio is hypnotizing!

      LMAO Hilarious. Now leave the buble you seem to live in.

    Nah I hope she doesn’t do it. I love RiRi but I don’t think she’d be great judge. I mean look at Spears and Iggy when they were on XF. Hope Idol gets someone else who isn’t a celeb like a vocal coach or a broadway star.

    Throw shade all yall want but Jennifer Lopez and Paula Abdul should never judge anyone’s singing when they have no singing talent what soever. I don’t care how many forced hits and auto tune. They could never sing to start with. Thats the truth! They sung no ones National Anthem.

    Review TB new song Pick me Up… great vide should’ve been release a little sooner. Not as strong as the one for her. She needs to do a radio run asap and announce an urban record…. ya know that Keyshia cole like record she always releases.

    What so many fail to realize is that these singing competitions shows are not only about the vocal talent. Yes, its a big part but there is also personality, drive, star power, the ability to make yourself more than just a reality singing competition winner but a true artist and ultimately a brand. So yall can shade J.Lo and Paula all ya’ll want but they both have number 1 albums and singles to their name and they’ve earned their place.
