Hate all you want, but girl can sing ... yes, Rihanna. It's funny, because in this day and age of pop stars who flash into being, shoot across the sky, then fade from view, it's usually the ones with legitimate talent who survive. There will be paparazzi stuff and other business, then Rihanna comes out with a record, and everybody says, "Oh, yeah. That's why we care." The voice is real, leaping and soaring, wrapping around a pop tune like she owns it.
Why go: The power of a pop diva in the wild should be witnessed.
Reconsider: You've had your fill of glitz and drama.
7:30 p.m. Friday, United Center, 1901 W. Madison St. $35-$150; ticketmaster.com
