Rihanna had fun and gave back at a pre-release party supporting victims of Hurricane Sandy on Friday.
Wearing a Proenza Schouler Birds Quilted Silk Jacket, the pop superstar greeted her fans at Jay-Z’s 40/40 club in New York and played music off her upcoming album Unapologetic.
She donated 1,000 sleeping bags to the New York Daily News’ Hurricane Sandy relief effort and encouraged others to do the same. Her fans were seen bringing clothing, blankets, and cleaning supplies, which will be delivered to hard-hit areas of the city on Saturday.
“Hurricane Sandy has deeply affected the lives of millions all across the Eastern Seaboard,” RiRi told the Daily News. “Now is the time for us to come together and do whatever we can to aid those in need.”
She will perform “Diamonds” and a new song off Unapologetic tonight on “Saturday Night Live.”
