Rihanna to Perform at Time 100 Gala
This should be interesting! Rihanna is slated to perform at the Time 100 Gala, which honors the world’s most influential people. Though it seems like RiRi’s typically sexually charged performances may not fit in with an event whose guests of honor include Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, she actually may blend in beautifully.
The Bajan beauty — who will also be honored alongside Adele — will take the stage along with Raphael Saadiq at the ceremony, which takes place at Jazz at Lincoln Center on April 24. There will be roughly 350 people watching the show, some of which make the ‘Birthday Cake’ singer more appropriate than you’d think for the gala: Chelsea Handler, comedian Louis C.K. and NBA sensation Jeremy Lin are all slated to attend.
This is only the latest in a slew of high profile gigs for Rihanna. She killed it at Coachella last weekend, performing with Calvin Harris and having a grand old time with some ganja and a guard — and will likely repeat her show this weekend. She’s also slated to hit the ‘Saturday Night Live’ stage on May 5 alongside host Eli Manning.
Rihanna’s currently promoting her latest ‘Talk That Talk’ single, ‘Where Have You Been,’ by teasing some stunning stills from the video. Her film, popcorn blockbuster ‘Battleship,’ will hit the big screen on May 18.
