The wait is over. After rocking the American Music Awards stage on Sunday night, [artist id=”1940303″]Rihanna[/artist] made her much-anticipated appearance on “Good Morning America” Tuesday (November 24), where she performed two songs from her new album, Rated R , plus one older fan favorite.
Looking fierce in a white sequined blazer with a little black shirt underneath and stilettos, Rihanna took the stage smiling. She kicked off her performance with her single “Wait Your Turn,” surrounded by her band and backup dancers, who were dressed all in black. The Times Square stage was set with old-fashioned TVs.
After singing the single from Rated R, which hits stores this week, she revealed to “GMA” host Robin Roberts that she had intended to wear something else entirely for the show. “My dress … I guess I’m a little too fat right now … the zip busted. They wanted to stitch it up but I couldn’t,” she joked about her wardrobe malfunction.
She also talked a bit about her new album album, saying, “It came very natural only because it was my place of peace, being the studio just venting. It was the one place I didn’t feel judged or criticized. Every emotion went into that album.”
She then sang another Rated R single, “Russian Roulette,” before closing out the show with her fan-favorite smash hit “Umbrella,” off her 2007 album Good Girl Gone Bad.
