Rihanna Live-Streamed Herself Ripping Shots While Watching Her Big TV Debut


Nothing is more #goals than Rihanna live-streaming herself drinking while watching herself on TV.

On Monday, March 20, the 29-year-old singer and actress appeared for the first time on A&E's "Bates Motel," a television prequel and remake of Alfred Hitchcock's 1960 thriller classic, "Psycho."

Though so far the entire show has taken place before the events of the original film, this fifth and final season is taking on the plot of the well-known story, and Rihanna is taking on the role of none other than Marion Crane — you know, the woman who gets killed by Norman Bates in the famous shower scene.

It's unclear whether or not Rihanna's version of Marion will survive or not.

But how did Rihanna celebrate her debut in this iconic cinematic role? By recording all of her reactions on Instagram live stream, and yes, drinking a little bit. It was pretty amazing.

If you didn't catch the live stream on RiRi's Insta, don't worry — some hero put it on YouTube for all of us.

Of course, you might not have time to watch 45 minutes of Rihanna watching herself on TV, in which case, allow Twitter to sum up the general vibe for you.


Bless. Only Rihanna could get away with laughing and drinking at her own TV show.

This is almost as good as the time she took shots from a flask at the Grammys.

As for her role in the actual episode, we got intimate with her character Marion in her very first scene.

Marion and Sam Loomis (Austin Nichols) getting were physical in the bedroom at the Bates Motel.

Unfortunately for Marion, it turns out Sam is already married, which is presumably why he brought her to the world's creepiest motel to have sex.

Like the film, Marion steals a bunch of money ($400 k). She drives for a while and then calls Sam to ask him to come meet her at said creepy motel. (Why people, why?)

And — oh good — creepy-ass Norman Bates (Freddie Highmore) is already there, and he's having visions of his dead mom telling him to be a killer.

So overall, it's not looking great for Rihanna.

In the promo for next week's episode, "Marion," it looks like Rihanna and Norman are going to get to know each other a little better.

Here's to hoping Rihanna will live stream that episode while smoking a joint!
