If you forgot to watch the 60th Annual Grammys last night, here’s what you missed. There were way too many ballads performed, Bruno Mars swept about every category, “Despacito” got dissed, with zero wins, Alessia Cara won Best New Artist, and the highlight of the night, by far, was when Rihanna totally went nuts while dancing on stage.
Maybe you’re on the fence about whether you like Rihanna or not. She has been rather inconsistent in her live performances. Many fans think her voice comes off as weak live, while others doubt her dancing technique. Well, this latest performance put all haters to rest. Rihanna came out onstage to sing “Wild Thoughts” and did not disappoint.
First, we saw the introduction. The relentless promoter and producer, DJ Khaled, talked about how he’s been working his whole life for this, and that they’d never play him at the Grammy's. But now here he was because “This the best music!”
Then we heard the familiar beat. Carlos Santana and Wyclef Jean wrote it back in 1999 for “Maria, Maria,” but it still works just as well for “Wild Thoughts,” if not better. Rihanna slid onto the stage with lyrics like, “I know you wanna see me naked, naked, naked,” and the audience was locked in.
Khaled interrupted now and then with some more charismatic hype. Then Bryson Tiller delivered the rap interlude. And the next thing you know, Rihanna really got down and dirty. This woman stuck out her butt and stuck out her tongue, and fans couldn’t get enough. The best part was, she looked so happy. And, many fans seemed to believe, that the star looked hungry too.

The memes started pouring in, and most of them related to food.One fan said (@KingJosiah54) displayed the meme and joked, “When she hungry and finally get some food.“ Another user (@Frankpallotta) said, “Me when my pizza arrives.” Ira (@ira) tweeted, “When bae bakes the mozzarella sticks instead of microwaving them.”
Needless to say, Rihanna enjoyed her night. She won a Grammy for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration, for “Loyalty,” with Kendrick Lamar. Fans also tweeted up a storm about her black latex coat. Cute video footage surfaced of her hanging out with her biggest fan, Pink’s daughter, Willow. At an after-party, late last night, Rihanna was seen hanging out with her boyfriend, Saudi Arabian billionaire, Hassan Jameel. The pair has been dating since October.
