Rihanna to Perform on

Rihanna’s got A LOT going on lately. She apparently has the flu. She’s in a bitter twitter feud with her former lover Chris Brown, and she’s set to perform on “American Idol” during the May 23 Finale episode!

The finale episode of American Idol also brings out the biggest stars in pop music, so that really limits the pool of talent to Rihanna, Jay-Z, Adele, and Lady Gaga.

Not only will American Idol crown a winner on May 23, but Rihanna will grace the stage, most likely performing her new hit, “Where Have You Been.”

When Rihanna performed on SNL this weekend, she debuted her new stage set that looks straight out of scene from Aladdin.

During tonight’s result’s episode Jennifer Lopez will perform her new single “Dance Again” and former American Idol winner David Cook will be singing his new song, “The Last Song I’ll Write For You.”

In related Rihanna news, she’s getting over the flu, which made her skip out on rehearsals for her SNL performance over the weekend. She also is in a bitter twitter fight with Chris Brown.

Chris recorded a freestyle over Kanye West’s song “Theraflu” and the very explicit lyrics appear to be about Rihanna. After hearing the song, Rihanna unfollowed Chris Brown on twitter and wrote, “Aw, poor dat #neaux1curr.”

Even though Chris’s lyrics don’t explicitly say “Rihanna,” she, and all of us, assumed it was about Rihanna.

Chris Brown then tweeted back at her, “Assumptions! I didn’t say any names so if u took offense to it then its something you feel guilty about.”

After that, he unfollowed her on twitter as well.
