Well, Rihanna made a special guest appearance at the N.E.R.D. show at UMKC Saturday night.Pharrell Williams
, the lead singer of the group, brought her out to show the crowd how to dance to "Soldier."
Unfortunately, she didn't sing. But she also didn’t look crazy, depressed or wild. In fact, she looked like a regular, shy but happy 21-year-old. The song choice couldn't be more fitting. Say what you want about the pop diva. Rihanna is a soldier, baby.
