NEW YORK, United States, Wednesday March 22, 2017 – Fans not only saw pop star Rihanna as she made her debut on US TV series Bates Motel this week, but they got to watch her watching it too.
During the airing of the fifth episode of the show, in its fifth and final season, Rihanna filmed herself and her friends on Instagram Live watching her performance as Marion Crane.
“Eww, I can’t bear the sound of that kiss, it’s disgusting,” Rihanna, who smooched costar Austin Nichols said at one point as she watched the episode. “It’s weirding me out.”
She and her pals also played a drinking game, taking a shot any time the names “Norman” or “Sam” were mentioned, although Rihanna did warn, “Don’t try this at home, kids.”
The 29-year-old superstar’s live stream had upwards of 50,000 views, with fans from all over the world sending Instagram “likes” and commenting on how much they enjoyed seeing her live while watching the show.
Rihanna will feature again in next week’s episode of Bates Motel which airs on A&E.
