Rihanna Performs ‘Diamonds’ on Saturday Night Live

Rihanna graced the stage on “Saturday Night Live” once again and all eyes were on her mystifying presence.

The Barbadian vixen donned an understated military outfit while she performed her new single “Diamonds” for the SNL crowd. She performed the song in front of a green screen that displayed a series of scenes and colors that made it seem like Rihanna and her band were in a different dimension. At one point, her band members looked like a group of floating heads.

This was Rihanna’s fourth SNL appearance; her last one was in May of this year. It was also her first time performing “Diamonds” on stage.

Rihanna also recently performed at this year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion show. Although the fashion show won’t air on television until December 4, various shots of the “Talk That Talk” singer have been splashed across the media. In some shots, Rihanna is seen wearing a slinky black gown with a pearl necklace and pearl trimmed Chanel sunglasses. In others, she is wearing a frilly pink lace number with matching ankle boots. As if fans couldn’t get enough of Rihanna, she leaked pictures of herself and supermodel Kate Moss on Twitter. The shoot was for the March 2013 issue of V Magazine. The pictures depicted racy scenes such as Rihanna being portrayed as a dominatrix and Moss sitting on a nude Rihanna’s lap.

Unfortunately, Rihanna might have gotten ahead of herself. V Magazine later released a statement expressing their disapproval. “It is an unfortunate case that these images were prematurely leaked, which is becoming a more prevalent issue within the industry,” she wrote. “While we don’t condone what has happened, we are beyond excited to have gotten these two icons of music and fashion together for such a beautiful shoot. This is just a taste of all of the fabulousness that awaits in the March 2013 issue.”
