A behind-the-scenes clip from the daytime talk show, which was released online on Friday, features a glimpse of what goes on when the cameras aren’t rolling. In this case, Rihanna and DeGeneres decided to belt out a Bon Jovi classic to entertain the audience during the show’s downtime.
But DeGeneres got tired about halfway through the song, and told Rihanna, “It’s all you.” The singer took over by herself, until a female staffer came out on stage to readjust the microphone pack clipped onto the back of Rihanna’ miniskirt. “This is my partner,” Rihanna joked as she put the microphone in front of the crew member’s face and had her sing a verse.
As Gossip Cop reported, Rihanna’s “Ellen” appearance aired on Thursday and during the singer’s segment, she played a revealing game of “Never Have I Ever” alongside fellow guest George Clooney. During the game, Rihanna admitted to having texted nude selfies in the past, as well as getting drunk before noon.
