Rihanna Rocks the Court
Rihanna performs at 2011 NBA All-Star game.
Rihanna goes country?!? The Barbadian beauty sexes up the next issue of RollingStone showing off some of her best assets in a white tank top and metallic looking cut-off jean shorts — giving us legs and thighs served up with a little country flavor. Whatever it is she’s selling, we’ll buy a dozen! 

It appears the transformation is more than superficial. Just in today, The Academy of Country Music announced that Rihanna has been added to their performance roster. She really is going country, y’all!

She and Jennifer Nettles of Sugarland will perform a special duet Rihanna’s new song “California King Bed” at the first-ever ACM Fan Jam.  The performance will be broadcast live from the ACM Fan Jam during the 46th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards, which will be broadcast live on Sunday, April 3. 

Riri was last seen lighting up the half-time show with a red hot performance for the NBA All-Star Game on February 20, 2011.
