Pop vixen Rihanna hams it up with Eli Manning and Andy Samberg in the promo for this weekend’s ‘Saturday Night Live.’ The ‘We Found Love’ singer look gorgeous in a black leather bra top and pants. Her hair, looking a little disheveled, is now jet black.
In the clip, Samberg tells Manning to go long. “What, you don’t even have a football,” the New York Giants quarterback responds. “Oh that’s a football thing, that’s how we greet each other here,” Samberg says, adding, “Hey Rihanna, go long!”
“Go long,” RiRi replies as she gives Samberg a high five, much to the chagrin of Manning.
Not only is Rihanna performing on the show, she also is planning to appear in maybe one or two sketches. “Yes, we are hoping so,” says SNL executive producer Lorne Michaels (via MTV). “We’ll know [soon]. I wish I could report on everything that’s been written [and] if this were tomorrow, I could,” he adds. “I know that there are a lot of things in the works, but I don’t frankly know how they turned out. And I think it’s our intention.”
We are hoping that Rihanna reprises her role in the Emmy-nominated digital short ‘Shy Ronnie’ with Samberg. But who knows?
Tune in to ‘Saturday Night Live’ this weekend at 11:30PM ET on NBC.
