Eminem & Rihanna “Stan” Lollapalooza
How could Eminem top bringing Bruno Mars out in 2011 at Lollapalooza? How about with his future tourmate: Rihanna?
Eminem headlined Day 1 of Lollapalooza here in Chicago and we were on hand to witness the two mega-stars perform their #1 singles “Love The Way You Lie” and “The Monster” (also below) — only to be followed up with Rihanna crooning the Dido chorus to “Stan”. This was more of the surprise to me than Rihanna appearing herself (as I correctly predicted earlier this week *sunglasses emoji*) and it was refreshing to hear Ri-Ri’s rendition of the iconic, chilling chorus. Chilling is how it felt live, and it was one of many goosebumps moments that I’ll recap more later today after a full night’s rest (note the time!)
BONUS: One of our top 3 all-time Eminem songs is “The Way I Am”… and it may just have vaulted to #1 for sentimental reasons seen at around the 20 second mark (!)
