Rihanna Sparkles at iHeartRadio Music Festival [Video]

Rihanna

Rihanna closed out the first day of the iHeart Radio Music Festival in Las Vegas with a bang. The pop diva was on top of her fashion game as always, wearing a shimmering Jeremy Scott jersey dress, New Era cap, and Jordans. She emerged to her hit “Only Girl (In the World).” With a Sphinx behind her on stage, she continued the Egyptian-themed set with “Disturbia” and “S&M.”

“Tonight is the first night of the iHeart Radio Music Festival, so you guys should be feeling really fu**ing special right now,” she told the sold-out crowd. “Tonight we need to make history, right? So I don’t want anybody in this building acting shy—nobody. I want ya’ll to get real cocky with me.”

RiRi then performed “Cockiness” followed by “Birthday Cake,” as her shirtless male dancers worked up a sweat. Confetti and balloons fell from the ceiling during the “We Found Love” finale.

“Diamonds,” the first single off RiRi’s upcoming album, is expected to premiere Wednesday on Z100’s “Elvis Duran and the Morning Show.” “Look out for #ElvisExclusiveWednesdays #Diamonds,” she tweeted.

Watch highlights from her sizzling set below.

    @white hos love BBC, LOL, that made me laugh but I agree. Shes tries but to me it just looks so bad. I like if she just vibes to her music, watching her try to do choreographed numbers makes me cringe. Beautiful girl, catchy songs, great fashion…no stage presence. To me it seems she doesn’t care for dancing, thats crazy when you don’t seem interested in your own set how do you think your fans will be?

    She looked tired and a bit out of it at times. I agree that she should take a break. Seems like she’s trying to follow Mariah Carey’s work regimine from the 90′s, releasing an album every year. We all know what eventually happened to Mariah… 2001 breakdown, anyone? Riri should slow it down a bit.

    I hate when she gives lazy vocals. She can do a much better effort vocally but sometimes she chooses to be lazy.

    @ Prettiedove, these guys are not hating. I’m a Rihanna fan but these performances were very uninspiring and boring to watch an seem long and painful to watch. It’s like she’s doing a karaoke rendition of her own songs for her friends…. I like Rihanna and I say this with love, she’s a mess and her vocals where all over the place and not to mention her dancing was below pathetic.

    I really need someone to explain to me why this talentless girl is such a star right now ? Can’t deny she’s a beauty but there is nothing in her vocals , stage presence nor dancing thats appealing. I just pray she won’t break anymore musical records cause she def do not deserve it !
