Not to be outdone by Lady Gaga’s Central Park gig for Good Morning America‘s Summer Concert Series, Rihanna also gave an outdoor New York City performance this morning, at Rockefeller Plaza, for the Today Show. The Billboard Music Award winner tore through her three #1 hits from her latest album Loud — “S&M,” “Only Girl (In The World)” and “What’s My Name” — as well as current single “California King Bed.” Watch below!
Things got a bit scary for RiRi during “S&M” while she walked through her gathered crowd of fans, as one of them grabbed her and pulled her up against the barrier. It looked like a tense moment, and you could clearly see the flustered look on her face for a moment afterwards.
But being a pro, the the crimson-haired diva pulled it together and took to the stage to perform the rest of the dance-pop jam.
