Rihanna PERFORMS "Diamonds" & "Stay" On "SNL" AND Inside The "Unapologetic" Listening Party At 40/40

Last night, Rihanna stopped by "SNL" to perform two tracks off her Unapologetic disc.  Watch the performances inside and get deets on the listening party she held in NYC recently. 

 

Pop star Rihanna stopped by "SNL" (hosted by Anne Hathaway) last night to perform two tracks from her upcoming Unapologetic disc.

She first hit the stage for "Diamonds" wearing a camouflage style slip dress and Timberlands.  Performing in front of a green screen, she crooned the song while her band members appeared to float in the air and their bodies became a part of the artwork appearing on the screen.

She performed "Stay," a lush ballad off the new album that allowed her to show that her vocal cords do actually work.

 

And in case you missed it....

On the heels of her Facebook interview and after reaching out to the NY Daily News, Rihanna used her star power to collect donations for Hurricane Sandy survivors via her Unapologetic listening party. She told the NY Daily News“Now is the time for us to come together and do whatever we can to aid those in need.”  She also donated 1,000 sleeping bags to their relief effort.

Held at the 40/40 club in Manhattan Friday night, Rihanna offered media the chance to listen to the cd and had everyone donate supplies to the Sandy relief effort (diapers and wipes, coats and blankets, cleaning supplies).

TheYBF.com was on the scene where Rih played her 15-track album in the lounge. Featuring guest appearances from Eminem, Future and Mikky Ekko, the disc addresses being vulnerable, independent and unconcerned about what others think of her personal life.

She kicks off the LP with party song "Fresh Out The Runway" which she performed at the Victoria's Secret fashion show. On "Pour It Up" she talks about strippers, while "Jump" has her sampling Ginuwine's "Pony." She teams with Eminem on "Numb" for their own rendition of Kanye West's "Can't tell me Nothing" and "Stay" is a lush love ballad.

Another highlight is her duet with Chris Brown on "Nobodies Business" where they sing about always loving each other...forever.

Though she was all smiles, the singer was indeed unapologetic about her late arrival as she was whisked past fans and the media.  She rocked a ‘Birds of Paradise’ quilted jacket by Proenza Schouler, Timberland boots, a Chanel handbag, and a diamond necklace by Kentshire and spent the remainder of the evening in VIP (and on her phone).

But at least her adoring fans & some media got to hear the album for free (in stores Nov. 19th).
