Rihanna prepped for tonight’s performance on “SNL” with food from her mentor Jay-Z’s restaurant, 40/40. She was rehearsing at NBC on Thursday night when sources say she called in six orders each of “signature” wings and seasoned fries. The “We Found Love” singer, we’re told, rehearsed until 11 p.m. She’ll appear on tonight’s show with New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning, who is hosting. Manning this week said he had turned down the gig in 2008 because his brother, Peyton Manning, had “done so well” hosting the previous year. “I didn’t want to have [to go] up against a great, a tough competition and the great job that he performed,” Eli said.
