New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning has found a “Saturday Night Live” teammate in pop diva Rihanna. MTV News says the singer will be the musical guest during “SNL’s” May 5th episode, which Manning will host. Next month’s appearance will be Rihanna’s third visit to “SNL.” Along with taking the stage, Rihanna has also popped up in a few sketches over the years. Her digital short with Andy Samberg, “Shy Ronnie,” picked up an Emmy nomination in 2010.
Rihanna’s upcoming “SNL” appearance will fall on her ex Chris Brown’s 23rd birthday. MTV points out that fans can probably expect a lot of speculation about Brown stopping by the show for a surprise appearance, especially since his new album, “Fortune,” drops on May 8th.
