Rihanna, Taylor Swift lead big TV weekend for pop music
Posted November 15, 2012
The stars are coming out on television this weekend -- pop stars, that is. As a prelude, tonight will see live performances by the rock bands Divine Fits and Boys Like Girls, respectively on CBS' Late Show With David Letterman and ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live, or you can check out Christina Perri on NBC's Tonight Show With Jay Leno.
Then the names get really big: Rihanna, whose new album, Unapologetic, is out Thanksgiving week, will perform on an episode of NBC's Saturday Night Live hosted by Anne Hathaway. The R&B diva is apparently looking for fan input: She recently tweeted, "What should be my second song on SNL?" (The album's lead single, Diamonds, will presumably be the first.)
On Sunday, another superstar with an album to promote, Taylor Swift, will appear on VH1 Storytellers. Swift, whose Red was released last month, taped the concert in front of students from Harvey Mudd College, who won a national contest to host her in concert.
