Rihanna may be planning to take a much-deserved break from the entertainment industry once she wraps up her 27-city Diamonds World Tour later this year, but during Friday night's kick-off performance in Buffalo, New York, the Barbadian songstress was most CERTAINLY at the top of her game - both vocally, and stylistically (in her River Island designs, of course)!
…Even if the show did start later than expected, after 10pm!
Ch-ch-check out our RiRi has she opened with the incredibly powerful Mother Mary, before segueing into Phresh Off The Runway, Birthday Cake, Talk That Talk, Pour It Up, Cockiness…and later Numb, Jump, Umbrella, All of the Lights, and Rockstar 101 (above)!
SERIOUSLY! Could she have picked a better setlist?!
It's like she compiled it with US exclusively in mind!
As she reportedly announced to the crowd at the First Niagra Center:
'You guys are all rockstars. There is only one first show, you all have a special place in my heart!'
And after all the excitement, she took to Twitter to share:
#BUFFALO I will never forget how you made me feel tonight!!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!! #1Love always
Update: Amanda's parents' conservatorship is still in place. In addition, the judge ruled that the lawyer who was present to rep Amanda could not have been hired by her because she didn't have the capacity to enter a binding contract.
This can't be a good start for this lady!
It looked like Amanda Bynes was going to be late to her court hearing where she hoped to end her parents' conservatorship, and it seems like that is exactly what has happened!
Her lawyer reportedly showed up to the courthouse in Ventura County, California, and zipped right into the courtroom where the lawyer in question hopes to convince the judge that Amanda is sound enough to live on her own without the interference of her parents!
