Katy Perry celebrates Rihanna's birthday: Hear her covers of Rihanna, Jay-Z, Willow Smith
Distance didn't stop Perry from celebrating her bestie, though. At Sunday's show she performed an acoustic version of Rihanna's "Only Girl (In The World)" and giving Rihanna a birthday shout-out. She segued easily into Jay-Z's classic "Big Pimpin'," for which she broke out her sparkly recorder. Yes, recorder. Next up came a cover of Willow Smith's "Whip My Hair," with surprisingly zero hair-whipping.
Perry also left Rihanna a Twitter message: "Happy birthday boo. Wish I could b there to blackout! Luv U!" she wrote.
What do you think of her covers of some of our fave songs, Zappers?
