Rihanna is set to perform at 2010 Kids’ Choice Awards according to People Magazine. The superstar is set to be one of the performers along with the 15-year-old pop sensation, and a huge Rihanna fan, Justin Bieber.
Kevin James will host 23rd Annual Kids’ Choice Awards in Los Angeles on March 27. Well, lets hope she’ll perform “Rude Boy” then! Don’t forget to watch her AOL Sessions performance cause she sounds amazing!
It’s not readily apparent in her television interviews or music videos, but Rihanna’s got a funny side. “I’m a prankster,” she told AOL when she and her band took over our studio for a Sessions taping.
Throughout the performance and interview, Rihanna was delightfully giggling and showing a lighter side that had all but disappeared recently. Of course, two days earlier she’d snagged a pair of Grammys, a feat that would make anyone smile. Check out her thoughts on the awards, fashion, possible collaborations and more below.
“It’s really colorful; it’s a pop art video,” Rihanna told MTV Korea. “We shot it all on green screen. Everything was done in post-production. It’s really colorful, really energetic. It was really inspired by my Caribbean roots. I love reggae music. ["Rude Boy"] is a Jamaican term, so our costumes are dancehall-queen-like. It’s a fun video. Probably the most fun video we’ve done so far.”
Rihanna has had a difficult past 12 months in the aftermath of her assault by her ex-boyfriend. But the “Hard” superstar has endured, by being both outspoken about her experience in hopes of helping others and by channeling her experience into Rated R, her most rounded effort to date. She told MTV News last year that she “vented” on the project.
Don’t expect her next album to be as dark as Rated R, though.
Rihanna said the follow-up, which has no timetable set yet, will be less intense. “Rated R, I love the sound of it, in terms of the bass,” Rihanna explained. “I really like the bottom, the grime of it. But if I were to combine that with more energetic, up-tempo pop records, then I think that will be a happy marriage. And that’s where we’ll probably go next.”
Rated R was inspired mostly by Rihanna’s ordeal in the wake of her and her ex-boyfriend breakup. The singer was the subject of media headlines worldwide. She kept away from the spotlight after a brief reunion with her ex-boyfriend following their altercation. But when Rihanna returned, she had an album that chronicled her months away from the glare.
“This album is an expression of all those feelings that I went through in the last eight months, just different emotions,” she said shortly after Rated R’s release. “All of it isn’t angry, all of it isn’t dark and sad, ’cause I didn’t go through that the whole time. That was part of it. It was really a roller coaster, and you get that when you’re listening to the album.”
The Styled To Rock competition launches with a nationwide search for cutting-edge designers looking to take their craft to the next level. Rihanna will personally select the 12 designers.
