Watch Patti Smith Cover Rihanna's "Stay"

Here's something cool that was lost in the year-end abyss of late December: Patti Smith paid tribute to Rihanna by performing "Stay", the subdued ballad (and duet with Mikky Ekko) from last year's Unapologetic, during her show at New York's Webster Hall on December 30. She stumbled a little bit—"I'm sorry, I'm just nervous," she said—which made it even more perfect. This should earn her a lifelong honorary membership in the Rihanna Navy.
