Last night, Rihanna and Jennifer Lopez waved their freak flags high during their respective New Year’s Eve performances.

As one of  the headliners on “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve” hosted by Ryan Seacrest, La Lopez took extreme measures to make sure she was the center of attention.  She accomplished that mission in s sparkly body suit initially covered by what looked like a monkey hair coat left over from “The Wiz.”

For her second number, “Waiting for Tonight” (love that song), J. Lo took off the tacky jacket and pranced around in the nude-looking leotard.  The whole look felt so vintage Cher or Britney circa 2000.

Meanwhile, RiRi was her usual, young-and-edgy bad girl self.  Her idea of keeping warm during the frigid New York City temps was wearing a cropped, white fur jacket over a black bustier.  She finished the kooky look with a top hat with a veil and a pair of baggy trousers she kept grabbing her crotch in.  I did, however, love her long leather gloves and spiky pearl choker.

What do you think?  Do either J. Lo or Rihanna look Hot?  Or were their outfits big New Year’s Eve flops?

Was Rihanna's crotch-grab a tribute to Michael Jackson?
