During Activision's E3 kick-off event at the Staples Center in L.A. on Monday, attendees got a real treat when Rihanna
hit the stage with Eminem
for a rendition of their song "Love the Way You Lie." The rapper stayed toward the back of the stage while Rihanna, clad in ripped jean shorts, a midriff-baring top and black Louboutin pumps, came up close to the fans. At the end of their performance, the pair exchanged a brief hug and Eminem continued with his set.
