Rihanna made a cameo at last night’s Watch The Throne tour stop in London.
I’m gonna go ahead and begin with a quick #humblebrag and let you know that I attended one of Kanye West and Jay-Z’s sold-out Watch The Throne shows at NYC’s Madison Square Garden. Sure, I may have had the sickest seats EVER (which may have been situated in front of Lauryn Hill, near Spike Lee, and with clear view of Diddy), but wanna know what my show didn’t have? An effing cameo by Rihanna!

Fans on hand to go H.A.M. at the Watch The Throne tour at London’s O2 Arena last night were treated to not one but two Rihanna cameos last night. First, Ri performed “All Of The Lights,” her collaboration with Kanye West off his 2010 release, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. Decked in all-black everything (natch), Rihanna was a total boss as she sang the hook. The performance also sported the same potentially epilepsy-inducing strobe light effect as the video, but the crowd was wayyy too busy focusing on the fact that Rihanna and Kanye were on the SAME STAGE to care about a potentially life-threatening medical condition.
Still decked in her head-to-toe black, Rihanna came back later to share the stage with both watchers of the throne (Jay and ’Ye, duh) to perform the 2009 smash “Run This Town.” I really wish I could keep reminding you that I sat in front of Lauryn Hill (!!!), but I know nothing compares to a Rihanna cameo. So congratulations to everyone at that show last night — your throne trumped mine. Dammit.
