Watch Rihanna watch herself on Bates Motel
If you’ve ever dreamed of tuning into your favorite show with live commentary from the star, Rihanna is here to make your wishes come true.
During Monday night’s episode of Bates Motel, the Grammy-winning singer used Instagram’s live feature to share her ongoing reactions to her much-anticipated debut on the A&E psychological drama.
Rihanna, who checked into Bates Motel as Marion Crane — the character made famous by Janet Leigh in Alfred Hitchcock’s 1960 thriller Psycho — initially seems embarrassed by her performance on the show, covering her face and making comments such as, “Ew, I can’t bare the sound of that kiss, it’s disgusting,” and “it’s weirding me out.” However, she soon begins to find the whole experience hilarious, dissolving into hysterical laughter alongside a couple of friends.
Other highlights of the episode-long live video include a drinking game, Ri pausing to send a text, the star encouraging Norman Bates (Freddie Highmore) with a “Yes, Norman!” and cheering on her own dramatic driving-in-the-rain scene.
At the end of the recording, the singer tells her fans: “It was such a pleasure watching this with you guys,” before admitting, “I only got to read like eight comments to be completely honest… I’ll try to better next time.”
Bates Motel airs Mondays at 10 p.m. ET on A&E. You can watch all 45 minutes of the footage above.
