Rihanna had a lot of fun on last night’s episode of “The Voice” and might have provided the most entertaining guest coaching that has ever been on the show. The singer appeared as the guest mentor for this week’s episode and she had plenty of unfiltered comments for the contestants … and the judges.
On the show, Rihanna has funny moments with contestants, many of whom act completely starstruck around her. She calls Blind Joe, a contestant who is visually impaired, “so sexy” in rehearsals and then apologizes to his mother and wife for doing so.
With frontrunner Jordan Smith, Rihanna tells the mild-mannered singer “I thought I liked you, but I don’t like you no mo’.” When Jordan responds “You’re going to hurt my feelings,” Rihanna shouts at him “no you hurt mine!” She then compliments Jordan by saying to his coach, “How am I going to critique this motha …” before she avoids finishing the word.
Maybe her most effective mentoring happens with the youngest contestant on the show, 15-year old Braiden Sunshine. Braiden changes his look and seems to take a major step forward after Rihanna and his coach Gwen Stefani advise him during a rehearsal..
But Rihanna doesn’t keep her opinions restricted to the contestants. When Blake Shelton tries to flirt with her, Bad Gal Riri does not hesitate to let him know how she feels.
Rihanna will also appear on tonight’s episode of “The Voice.”
Below we have a compilation clip of Rihanna’s best moments, a video of her mentoring session with Braiden, a video of Braiden’s breakout performance and the snippet where she gives creepy Blake Shelton a pet name.
