Rihanna Performs Rockstar 101 On American Idol

And plays a guitar!

Rihanna hit American Idol last night to perform her new single Rockstar 101.

Appropriately the stage-set had a rock theme with lightning bolts and skulls on the video screen.
 
Ri wore a leather catsuit for the TV show and halfway through the performance donned a ‘black flying v guitar’ although we’re not sure you could say she ‘played’ it!
 
In related news new rapper Nicki Minaj has pulled out of Rihanna’s US tour which takes place this summer.
 
A tweet from her said: “I'm sorry 2 say I will not be going out on RiRi's tour. I've decided 2 use that time 4 the completion of my album. Hope u understand."
 
However fans will still get to see Ke$ha support the Umbrella singer.
Rihanna’s tour comes to the UK this May.
