Rihanna Uses ‘Teen Mom 2′ Clip of Jenelle Evans To Promote Monster TourBy: Meaghan Ellis - March 24, 2014
Rihanna wants all of her fans to know that she’s prepping for the Monster Tour with Eminem.
The 26-year-old Barbadian singer is making gratuitous strides to promote the six-city tour. She’s even added her own personal touch to a particular Teen Mom 2 clip.
Although the “Love the Way You Lie” singer publicly confirmed the tour on March 19, she decided to take an extra step to raise awareness with her fans.
Three days later on Saturday, Mar. 22, the Unapologetic singer shared a revised version of the clip via Instagram. The original clip featured Jenelle Evans explaining to her lawyer that she couldn’t fulfill her jail sentence because she had tickets to a Kesha concert.
“I really can’t miss that concert,” Evans said in the 2012 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.”
However, the revised version is a bit different. The 15-second Instagram clip is all about Bad Girl RiRi. Right after Evans says, “It’s not just a concert,” the clip abruptly shifts to an image of Rihanna’s tour signage, with a voice boldly declaring, “Its Rihanna!” The caption for the video read, “The. monstER. tour. #NEWYORK #LOSANGELES#THEDETROIT be like…@Eminem.”
The video quickly became a fan favorite and now has more than 200,000 likes. As the video began circulating on social media sites, it didn’t take long for Evans to find out about it. She was actually quite shocked about the clip. The reality TV star took to Twitter to share her elation with fans. She tweeted, “badgalriri’s video – dude Rihanna actually noticed me lol.”
Rihanna also posted a series of tweets about the highly anticipated tour.
Rihanna and Eminem are scheduled to kick off the week-long Monster Tour on Aug. 7 in Pasadena, CA.
