Ryan Seacrest and Rihanna

Pop singer Rihanna paid a visit to KIIS FM’s “On Air with Ryan Seacrest” yesterday morning to promote her latest album Rated R and here are a few photos of her making her way to the Hollywood studio for the live radio interview.

In an earlier interview with popular New York City radio station Hot 97, Rihanna talked about how “humiliating” and “embarassing” it was for her when she found her her naked body had made its way onto the internet.

“It was the worst thing that could possibly ever happen to me. I just felt like my whole privacy was taken before that [with the other photo leak] and then, when that came out, I thought, ‘Oh great, so now there’s nothing they don’t know about me and my private life,’ ” she said. “It was humiliating and it was embarrassing – especially my mom having to see that.”

Nervous about her mother’s reaction to the second photo scandal, Rihanna sent flowers before calling to break the news, just two days before Mother’s Day. “I was nervous [but] when the world is against me she’s always there supporting,” said the singer.


Rihanna reportedly shot the music video for “Hard,” the third single from Rated R, yesterday and will finish the shoot today. Rapper Young Jeezy is scheduled to make a cameo in the video as he is featured on the track itself, which is (in our opinion) the hottest song on the album! And according to JustJared.com, the music video will be directed by Melina Moutsoukas, who also directed Ciara’s “Work,” Whitney Houston’s “Million Dollar Bill,” Robin Thicke’s “Sex Therapy” and several other videos.
