Rihanna hit the Saturday Night Live stage for the season finale and brought her unmistakable panache to “B*tch Better Have My Money.” Her appearance at the Met Gala last week typified Bad Gal RiRi’s persona with vivid colors and embellished drapery adorning her killer frame. For this performance, she channeled the Cholas of East L.A., sporting overalls that still couldn’t hide her spilling charisma.
As she cruised into her signature hip-hop chant, the set opened up for her seductive motion. It was a little late 90s Janet Jackson and a little early 2000s Gwen Stefani but her gangster levels far surpassed those two. And when she stomps the chorus out, jolting the audience with commands, you’re psyched to not owe her any money.
Rihanna also performed “American Oxygen” later in the show.
