Quote of the Day

"When I'm on tour or performing, I'm sucked and plucked and squeezed and teased. So I want to do the opposite of that when I'm just me and living my life."

Kanye cameos at Rihanna New York concert

"I know ya'll are pretty gangster down here," Rihanna told 15,000 screaming fans at Uniondale, New York's Nassau Coliseum Tuesday night.

The Barbadian beauty was seated on the edge of the stage, trying to prepare her guests for the unpreparable: a surprise cameo by Kanye West that included performances of "All of the Lights" and "Run This Town."

"I want to give a big shout-out to my mom and my grandma in the house tonight," Riri added nonchalantly.

"I like to say I'm a bad bitch, but they're badder bitches than me. I'm scurred of them."

The NIVEA-sponsored tour exhibited Rihanna's factory of hits with no shortage of costumes: "Disturbia" in a sequined bikini, "Unfaithful" in a flowy canary number, "S&M" as part of a metallic pillow fight, "Rude Boy" and "What's My Name" in an oversized floppy headband, and "Hard" in a cape that made this blogger consider storming the dressing room.

J. Cole fittingly served as the opening artist, reminiscing a freakier Chris Brown ("God bless the homegirl that drove us home/no strings attached like a cordless phone," he sang during "In the Morning"), while NIVEA hooked superfans up with temporary tattoos and bloggers with mac-and-cheese-stocked skyboxes.

Check out some of our favorite moments of the night, below.

At the Cirque Du Soleil Zarkana premiere

It's a great night to be a New Yorker!

Cirque Du Soleil invaded Manhattan's Radio City Music Hall for the premiere of their latest show Zarkana, an operatic, dark, height-defying production not for the faint of heart!

Joining Cirque for the fun were (from top) Selita Ebanks, Gayle King, Adrienne Bailon, Judah Friedlander, Jill Zarin and Kelly Bensimon.

We also caught Regis Philbin marveling inside with wife Joy!

Following the show, guests headed to Roseland Ballroom for a churrascaria and cotton candy-coated after-party, where the childlike spirit of Cirque rang transparent.

Zarkana will be playing at Radio City Music Hall until October 8.
