Sure, we're used to seeing eccentric singer Rihanna dress like she's the, um, only girl in the world, but a bathrobe, gold headpiece, and intense face paint? With leopard heels? On the streets of New York City? We're confused.

It turns out the Barbadian star wasn't just raiding Cleopatra's closet. Instead, she was heading to perform at the Jacob Javits Center in NYC yesterday (May 14). Aww, man, we were hoping for a juicier explanation for this one.

Either way, after Rihanna's reported "dehydration" last week, we hope the wild star wrapped up last night's performance with a hearty dinner and some much needed R&R!
