Rihanna has been in the news lately and none of it has been good. Womp. First, on Saturday during a concert in Portugal, Rihanna’s health struggles came to a head. It’s been no secret that she’s been battling everything from exhaustion to the flu during this tour. If it was me, I’d take this as a clue that my schedule needs to slow down. Not everyone can have a hectic tour run and perform top notch every night. But, despite doctor’s warnings, Rihanna kept pushing through shows.
Then, after way through performing her song What’s My Name, RiRi had to rush off stage…to throw up. Yeah. She even went on to Twitter later on, to explain what happened.
“yep! i ran off stage to throw up, halfway thru Whats My Name…made it back juuuust in time for RudeBoy” she tweeted to a fan following the show.
Poor thing. Check out the footage where she runs off stage here. And if that didn’t make her feel bad, the people over at Jackie magazine made her feel even worse. While the Dutch magazine was trying to praise her style and give readers tips on how to pull off her look in the cold of winter, they used a “colorful” title. How they didn’t know it was offensive, I’ll never know. But check out the “slang” and see their apology, after the jump…
So yesterday, I was giving the side eye to VH1 for the headlining lineup. And I was really hoping that it wouldn’t be as bad as I was thinking it would be…and…*sigh* Gone are the days when VH1 Divas was something to really get excited about. In small increments, the show was successful. For instance, The Roots did an outstanding job as the band for all the performers. Which I didn’t doubt at all. Jill Scott pulled the thug tears out of everyone far and wide with her performance of Hear My Call.
But there was just something, that didn’t curl all the way over, for the show as a whole. I mean, when you have ?uestlove of The Roots already tweeting in attempts to control the slander? Chile…but, it was necessary. Check out a clip of the Amy Winehouse tribute, featuring Wanda Jackson and Florence Welch and see why ?uest quickly jumped tried to diffuse the tweets, after the jump…
