Rihanna Promotes Upcoming 'Monster' Tour With Infamous 'Teen Mom 2' Clip
The 25 year-old singer remastered a viral video of 'Teen Mom' star Jenelle Evans to promote upcoming tour.
Clip Rihanna is trying a unique way to plug her upcoming 'Monster' tour.
The 25 year-old singer is heading on the road for a three-date run this coming summer with rap superstar Eminem, and has used a well-known clip from 'Teen Mom 2' for promotional purposes.
The clip is of Jenelle Evans from 2012 when she tells her lawyer she cannot fulfil a prison sentence due to it clashing with a Kesha concert she had bought tickets for.
"I really can't miss that concert," she says in the video. "That's why I got all these feathers in my hair. I bought clothes for the concert. I set up hotel rooms for the concert."
Rihanna, who posts her version on Instagram, only changes the clip slightly, when Jenelle says "It's not just a concert," a graphic of RiRi's name appears with a powerful voice over shouting it.
Rihanna captioned the clip, "The. monstER. tour. #NEWYORK #LOSANGELES #THEDETROIT be like......... @eminem."
Although it seems like the clip is mocking Jenelle, as soon as she discovered the 'Umbrella' singer had used it, the 'Teen Mom' star tweeted, "badgalriri's video--dude Rihanna actually noticed me lol."
She also posted a link to the video along with the tweet.
The dates and venues for the three-city, co-headlining summer tour have been announced on Eminem's official website.
Rihanna will first join Eminem on August 7th at the Rose Bowl in Los Angeles, then head to East Rutherfood, New Jersey, on August 16th to play at the MetLife Stadium. And finally, the tour will wrap things up on August 22nd at Eminem's hometown in Detroit's Comerica Park.
All these venues are outdoor stadiums, which means the musical stars must be anticipating huge sell-out crowds.
