Rihanna brought her Diamonds World Tour to Staples Center on Monday night, offering the celebrity-studded crowd a two-hour barrage of hits and glossy, sex-driven production.

The performance, presented in six “acts,” showcased the many facets of the singer, who is currently supporting her recent seventh album Unapologetic.  Above:  “Los Angeles, what the f–k?! Y’all like that? Y’all want some more of that? I live here now. I know y’all can get ratchet. This next song is just for you!” Rihanna @ Staples Center.

Accompanied by 15 dancers, backup singers and musicians, Rihanna focused on her singles, occasionally unearthing a deeper album cut, sorting the set list into categorical song types. Rihanna herself draped in gold - and no pants (a theme that would continually reveal itself throughout the evening).  Above: “Rockstar 101”

Accompanied by taut backup dancers, the singer gyrated and strutted around the stage, quickly diving through Unapologetic standout “Phresh Out The Runway and past hits “Birthday Cake” and “Talk That Talk.”  Above: “Man Down”

The boisterous crowd, which included Elton John, Julia Roberts, Big Sean, Christina Aguilera, Tyga and several members of the Kardashian clan, was most enlivened toward the end of the performance, when Rihanna, now wearing silver sneakers and a silver dress, fast-forwarded through hit after hit.  Above:  ”Pu##y Money Weed”

“Only Girl (In The World)”

“Don’t stop the Music”

“Mother Mary”
