Let it be said that Rihanna is not just a mesmerizing performer and fashion trendsetter — she’s also a marketing genius. On Saturday, the pop star playfully posted a “Teen Mom 2” clip from 2012 to Instagram to help promote her upcoming “Monster Tour” with Eminem, and, well, consider awareness raised.
Fans of “TM2” should easily recall the Season 3 scene RiRi uploaded, in which Jenelle Evans considers risking more jail time so she can attend a Kesha (né Ke$ha) concert. The video immediately stirred up a ton of controversy when we originally released it as an episode sneak peek, but the singer’s new version has a special twist at the end.
In BadGalRiRi’s Instavid below, Jenelle is distraught after her lawyer tells her she may have to miss the Kesha show. “That’s why I got all these feathers in my hair,” she says. “I bought clothes for the concert. I set up hotel rooms for the concert. It’s not just a concert it’s…” Cut to a full-screen graphic of
Kesha’s Rihanna’s name, underscored by a booming male voice shouting it. “the. monstER. tour. #NEWYORK #LOSANGELES#THEDETROIT be like……… @eminem,” the caption reads.
Pretty sneaky, sis.

The “Monster Tour” will only hit three cities — New York, Los Angeles and Detroit — in August. However, there’s still time to add a fourth location! RIHANNA, how’s about a quick pit stop in Myrtle Beach so Jenelle can finally put her hair feathers to good use?
+ Re-watch the full scene of Jenelle freaking out over missing the Kesha concert, and check out an all-new episode of “Teen Mom 2” this Tuesday at 10/9c.
