Rihanna Performs "What's My Name", "California King Bed" & "S&M" On The Today Show

Rihanna’s music gets you on your feet and excited when you hear it in the club or while driving in your car. It’s just so sad it doesn’t get translated over into her performances. Her long red tresses and cut, ripped and fishnet stockings hit The Today Show stage to perform her hit singles What’s My Name,  S&M and California King Bed.

As I’ve told divaNikki all she needs is some practice in rehearsals with Beyonce. I’m quite sure a huge difference could be seen if she got some pointers, nonetheless, check her perform below.

Rihanna's Breaking Records

That Rihanna reign ain’t lettin’ up anytime soon.

Her extremely catchy single “S&M” and its remix featuring Britney Spears have moved to the #1 spot of the Billboard charts this week.  This is her 10th #1 hit.  This is the shortest span for an artist to rack up all those hits.  The first one was “S.O.S,” which only debuted 4 years ago.  At just 23 years old, she becomes the youngest artist to have 10 #1’s; it was previously Mariah Carey who was 25 years old…plus it took her more time.  At this point, only the Beatles and the Supremes stand in front of her.

The singer tweeted:  “10th!!!!!Now LOOK at what u did… #RihannaNavy U rocked that shit OUT!THANK U so much, this is the BEST news!U guys #werk hard #whosyadaddy,” tweeted a thrilled RiRi, who also thanked Britney Spears’ fans. “#BIGUP to @britneyspears and all her wonderful fans who supported this song.”

Island Def Jam President Steve Bartels says:  “Rihanna’s tenth #1 single is a monumental accomplishment and a testament to her incredible artistry. This was a truly collaborative and creative effort, spearheaded by Rihanna’s tireless work and aided in no small part by the incredible Britney Spears and her team. I am extremely proud of Rihanna, her ongoing dominance on the charts, and the entire IDJ team who worked so diligently to bring this one home.”

This is major diva behavior and we give Ri-Ri her props.  pure #swag.

Video: Rihanna- S&M

The video is finally out for S&M that all the Rihanna stans have been waiting for. Provocative, sexy, colorful and meaningful are words that came to mind when I watched it. “Sticks and stones may break my bones/but chains and whips excite me.” Oh yes, your going to see quite a few chains and whips. Her outfits are form fitting and sexy to play along with the direct lyrics of the song.

A portion of the vid displays negative and harsh comments that have been said about Rihanna in the media and she’s putting it on blast, also taking a jab at bloggers by having Perez Hilton himself play as her pet. She’s definitely sending an overall message out to the media, leave her the f’ alone.

I’m liking the video, are you??
