Rihanna Rules as Cleopatra at Charity Event

Rihanna

Rihanna was queen of the night at the 2012 Robin Hood Benefit in New York last night. Following Lady Gaga last year, the Bajan goddess ruled the stage as she performed her dance single “Where Have You Been,” while channeling Cleopatra in a sexy gold outfit with snake-inspired accessories. Her dancers donned elaborate costumes to match the Egyptian theme.

The Roots were also on the bill and rock legend Neil Young made a surprise appearance. The performers donated their time for free, with $57 million raised to fight poverty in New York City.
