RIHANNA has now announced some additional dates for her upcoming Loud tour, which is kicking off June 4th in Baltimore, Maryland.  So far, Rihanna has 17 confirmed dates, and she's also just announced that CEE-LO GREEN will be joining her as the opening act on the tour.

In a statement, Rihanna said that she's been "a huge fan" of Cee-Lo since the days when he was a member of the rap collective GOODIE MOB, and adds, "He's a musical genius, continually reinventing himself, and I'm thrilled to have him join me."  As for Cee-Lo, he says of Rihanna, "Don't tell her I have a crush on her, don't wanna mess everything up.  But honestly, it's an honor and a blessing to be able to go out with a talent such as hers."

I hope he wears the Red Feather Suit on the concert.  He always has new and interesting stage shows.  DP
