Rihanna Performs on SNL

View Comments

Saturday Night Live pulled out the big guns when it had Rihanna serve as their musical guest.  The Bajan beauty not only performed, but she starred in one of their famed Digital Shorts called “Shy Ronny” with funnyman Andy Samberg.

Watch Rihanna and Young Jeezy perform “Hard” on SNL!

  • Check out this SNL digital short with Rihanna and “Shy Ronny:”

The skit that drew up the biggest controversy was about Tiger Woods recent escapades.  There’s no disputing the fact that it makes us laugh, but the jabs at domestic violence have media outlets asking if it’s OK to make fun of battered husbands.  In the skit, Blake Lively plays Tiger Woods “Nordic blooded” wife.  See what happens when Tiger comes clean.

The entire skit is an interesting take on what many people suspect went on the night of Tiger Woods’ car accident.  Especially, with Rihanna, a victim of domestic violence, as the musical guest.  Still, it seems a bit insensitive to air it during the same episode where Rihanna is musical guest, even if it is socially relevant.  What do you think of the skit?  Should it have been cut for potentially being offensive to Rihanna and other victims of domestic assult?  Let us know in the comments!
