People Are Convinced Eminem Brought Out Rihanna At Coachella & They’re Losing It
24 April 2018, 11:08
Eminem wrapped up the second weekend of Coachella with an explosive star-studded set, but not before leaving a wave of confusion in his wake.
During his hour-and-a-half show, Shady performed a killer combination of old classics, fan favourites and new bangers. As in his Weekend One performance, he was also joined by Dr. Dre and 50 Cent.
However, as he kicked off a performance of 'Love The Way You Lie', his 2010 chart-topping collaboration with Rihanna, online chaos ensued.
Because after seeing a female figure walk on stage to join the rapper, people at the festival were convinced the woman in person was RiRi herself.

As rumours swirled, Coachella attendees and Twitter users alike scrambled to find video footage of the pair together as people claimed to have "heard Rihanna's voice".
This was, however, not the case. Mirroring his performance last weekend, Eminem actually brought out frequent collaborator Skylar Grey to sing Rihanna's part in place of the Bajan singer.
As previously mentioned, Eminem and 50 Cent drove the crowd wild with Fif's hit 'In Da Club', before linking up with Dr. Dre to perform 'California Love' among a few other tracks.
Last week, the 'Revival' star surprised crowds by appearing to admit he's no longer good at rapping during his hotly anticipated set.
Meanwhile, Eminem celebrated ten years of sobriety over the weekend, commemorating the milestone with an Instagram post.
