Birthday Girl Rihanna's NBA All-Star Game Performance
Spending her 23rd birthday tending to center spotlight performing duties, Rihanna offered up a sizzling halftime show during the 2011 NBA All-Star Game at Staples Center in Los Angeles on Sunday (February 20).
The Barbadian beauty took the stage as she kicked things off with a rendition of her career-launching single "Umbrella" before transitioning into her hot new hit "Only Girl In the World".
Also delivering an energetic rendition of "Rude Boy," RiRi was then joined onstage by Canadian rapper Drake for their chart-topping duet "What's My Name?" - during which Drake changed up the lyrics to offer up birthday wishes to Rihanna.
Closing things out to the delight of the packed crowd, Kanye West
emerged for the final song of the evening as he and Rihanna performed "All of the Lights" - which just saw in the release of its music video directed by Hype Williams the previous day.
Once finished up with the show, Rihanna changed into something more comfortable and grabbed up a seat alongside Justin Bieber as the pair watched the Western Conference team beat the Eastern Conference squad by a score of 148-143. Kobe Bryant was named MVP.
