Rihanna Pulls In Positive Reviews For Hackney Performance

Rihanna closed out the Hackney Festival in ferocious fashion. Despite her hit filled performance and even making history with Jay-Z much of the talk is surrounding the singer’s outfit which included a leopard print t-shirt, fishnet cycling shorts and black hot pants to win over the crowd.

The 24-year-old rolled through her hottest songs Disturbia, Birthday Cake, What’s My Name, Rude Boy, Man Down, Where Have You Been, Wait Your Turn, Hard, and Don’t Stop The Music. Rihanna eventually closed out with We Found A Love – a huge hit for her in the UK. She told the crowd,

“Hackney, they told me you lot are crazy but I did not expect it to be like this. You guys rock! You guys have made this show so memorable for me. I’ve been waiting so long for this show.”

Others at the festival included R&B singer Trey Songz who blazed through ‘Can’t Be Friends’ and his latest hit ‘Heart Attack’. Harlem rapper Azealia Banks also took the stage to perform ‘212’.

On a fashion tip both Rihanna and Azealia opted for funky sunglasses on stage.

Back to Rita Ora whom many have rumored is feuding with Rihanna was spotted wearing the same Katie Ory shirt in London. The pop stars certainly share a similar style and fans are likely to pick sides but Rita insist there is no feud,

“The funny thing is I’ve met her a few times…It’s just one of those things where I almost told everyone, like, there is nothing going on, you know, people like to talk, create things. She’s part of the family, she has always been, and it’s all good vibes.”
