My feelings on Rihanna are well-documented (or were, on the old incarnation of this blog), so I'm sure you can imagine the serious WTF?? face I had when I saw this poster. 'Ye? Check! N*E*R*D? I thought ya'll were broken up, but sure! Lupe? SHHHYEAAAAAHHHH! (Did I mention I'm going to see him tomorrow night? I'm so effin' excited, you guys!!!) But... Rihanna? How does she fit in? Maybe they really needed a chick who was hot right now and Beyonce's tour rider was longer than everyone else's put together? And, well, Mariah is crazy. That's about all I can think of. Rih's music is slightly weird, so I can see how she fits in that way, but come on! {haterism}Unlike everyone else on that poster, she doesn't actually have a talent, and that just doesn't feel right.{/haterism} Oh well, assuming the bottom is in chronological order, I'm pretty sure I'll be going to this show... kinda late. *Note: I'm loving this poster. Very Return of the Jedi.

I had the same reaction when I saw Rihanna on there. It's probably the Def Jam connection. Definitely a good look for Lupe. And the Star Wars lettering is cool.

YO!! That poster is the hottest ish out there!! i want it, I want to go, I want to hang it on my wall AFTER the concert!

and as for ri-ri, all your points are very valid. i mean, her pleather get-ups fit in with the daft punk and n.e.r.d. sound... i guess... sure... we'll go with that.

Jam- we're so ::here:: lol

Yellow Rebel- Welcome to my blog! I agree with this being a good look for Lu... he deserves the attention this tour is going to give him. He's worked so hard, and is SO GOOD at what he does.

Stace- girl, me too! I'm going to have to cop this poster, and put it up on my wall like I'm 12 again. Also? LMAO at the "pleather." Seriously, the chick looks like a discount dominatrix these days.

Rhi rhi has grown on me, but moreso in an oh-that-catchy-and-well-produced-and-arranged kinda way. I def had the same reaction to her involvement. Err?

yeah, I might need to hit this one up. I'm with you on Rihanna, but I'll put up with her to see the rest of the acts.

@ Wife and Joy - Ummm, once tour dates are released, I say we pick a place in the middle and GO!

@ Rashan - You're far more tolerant than I!
