About Rockstar 101

"Rockstar 101" is a song by Barbadian singer Rihanna from her fourth studio album, Rated R (2009). The song features the British-American guitarist Slash of the rock group Guns N' Roses. It was released on May 18, 2010, as the fifth single from the album. Rihanna wrote the song in collaboration with the producers The-Dream and Christopher "Tricky" Stewart; vocal production was carried out by Makeba Riddick. The album version is a grunge-crunk and hip hop song, while the remix EP's consist of dance, dubstep and electronic music adaptations, some of which were remixed by Dave Audé and Mark Picchiotti. Critical response to "Rockstar 101" was mixed; some critics praised Rihanna's "bravado" while others criticized the "aggressive" tone. The song charted at number 64 on the United States' Billboard Hot 100 chart, and number two on the Dance Club Songs chart. To promote the song, Rihanna performed on American Idol in April 2010. It has been included on the set lists of her Last Girl on Earth (2010–11) and Diamonds World Tour (2013). Melina Matsoukas directed the song's music video, which portrays Rihanna impersonating Slash. She wears custom made jewelry designed by Fannie Schiavoni in some parts of the video, while Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker makes a cameo appearance.

Got up in the club
Posted in the back
Feeling so good
Looking so bad

Rocking this skirt
Rocking this club
Got my middle finger up
I don't really give a f*ck

Rocking these diamonds
I'm rocking this chain
Make sure you get a picture
I'm rocking my fame

To be what you is
You gotta be what you are
The only thing I'm missing
Is a black guitar

I'm a rockstar
Hey baby
I'm a rockstar
Hey baby

Big city
Bright lights
Sleep all day
Up all night

Hey baby
I'm a rockstar
Hey baby
I'm a rockstar

Sleep all day
Up all nights

Hey, hey, hey

Six inch walker
Big shit talker
I never play the victim
Id rather be a stalker

So baby take me in
I'll disobey the law
Make sure you frisk me good
Check my panties and my bra

Wild 'n' out
A crazy house
With my white jacket on
Won't you come
And sign me out

To be what you is
You gotta be what you are
The only thing I'm missing
Is a black guitar

I'm a rockstar
Hey baby
I'm a rockstar
Hey baby

Big city
Bright lights
Sleep all day
Up all night

Hey baby

Cause I cant wait till tomorrow
I'm a live my whole life

Why wait till tomorrow

In the night
