Rihanna was on Saturday Night Live Saturday night and gave a visually interesting performance of her pop hit, Diamonds. The background while she was doing the song looked like a bad 90’s computer graphic. That’s not necessarily a bad thing. It felt like an quirky artistic choice. Check out her performance and let us know what you think  in the comments.

Fabolous Doesn’t Deliver at Brooklyn College



Fabulous came to perform at Brooklyn College and unfortunately it was not as big a deal as it sounds. Being that Fab is a Bed-Stuy Brooklyn boy himself who made it big you would think he would be greeted by a crazy-packed live house; not really not this time. 


This is especially surprising because the tickets to the show were free! (At least to Brooklyn students, which may be one of the reasons responsible for the relatively smaller turn out). On the two-floor Whitman Hall venue, only the first floor was around 75 percent filled. The promotion wasn’t strong enough or was too short notice, either way I’m not pointing fingers at the promo people for the show being on the weaker side. I am pointing it at Fab. He was dry.


The acts that opened up for him were more live, particularly the DJ and comedian. They were very prepared and geared for the Brooklyn audience. Fab looked like he really didn’t care and not in the “cool” way, he didn’t care to be there. He walked around and rapped like he was sick of it. Girls went nuts and came close to fainting when he touched their hands but that was the extent of his engagement in the crowd and that’s only because of his celebrity status. He lost his edge and didn’t deliver.
