Rihanna Rocks MTV’s ‘The Seven’ in Times Square (PHOTOS)

By: / November 16, 2010

When your new album is named Loud, why not celebrate its release by shutting down Times Square and inviting fans to a hopping, high-energy concert on MTV’s The Seven? That’s precisely what Rihanna did on Monday in New York City!

The eternally fierce pop star sported long red hair and a funky tribal jacket for her two-set live concert on The Seven, performing “Only Girl (In the World”) and “Say My Name.” True to the title of her new album, her fans got as loud as they could.

“This album was my way of expressing myself to the fans. That’s why I called it Loud,” she told The Seven. “It’s really attention-grabbing. It’s in your face.”

After the show, Celebuzz caught up with The Seven hosts Julie Alexandria and Kevin Manno at MTV studios, where they had high praise for Rihanna’s concert, the first live one on their new show.

“She has a style, a sound, a look that’s so unique,” Julie told us. “She is who she is.”

As for Kevin’s dream guest, he’s keeping his fingers crossed for megastar Justin Bieber.

As Kevin puts it: “When Bieber’s in there and everyone’s applauding him, in my head, that’s for me!”
