Kathy Griffin - Kathy Griffin Rocks Troops Concert In Bikini

KATHY GRIFFIN, the American comedienne and television personality, hosted last night's (5th December 2010) 'VH1 Divas: Salute the Troops' concert, wearing only a camouflage bikini, reports the UK's Sun newspaper. During the star-studded event that also featured the likes of KERI HILSON, KATY PERRY, and JENNIFER NETTLES, Griffin paid tribute to America's serving soldiers, and opened the show with a dig at the one of America's most popular reality families, saying, "I came in on a missile. Now I know what it feels like to be a Kardashian. I mean the one that married Lamar Odom".
Before appearing live on stage, 50-year-old Griffin had appeared in a pre-taped segment with US troops. The clip saw the comedienne joking with soldiers, revealing that she was a 'decorated officer', and speaking about how BRANDY was 'robbed' on DANCING WITH THE STARS. The troops in the audience were also treated to performances from the likes of controversial rapper NICKI MINAJ, and rockers PARAMORE.
A spokesman for the event said, "The holidays are especially tough for our men and women in uniform and their families, and having the opportunity to touch so many troops stationed around the world at a time of year that matters most lets them know that America still cares about their welfare".
