Rihanna’s Poor Performance Due To Death Of Her Beloved Grandmother
Rihanna’s Poor Performance Due To Death Of Her Beloved Grandmother

Having Rihanna headline at the annual Peace & Love Festival was seen as a huge honor for Sweden, but the audience at the music gathering were unimpressed when the We Found Love singer appeared on stage 45 minutes late on Saturday.

However, Rhianna may have been hiding some considerable distress as it emerged this morning that her grandmother Dolly had died from cancer.

Rihanna also seemed to forget where she was, and dedicated her Redemption Song to Norway. Some fans took to Twitter to condemn the singer as a result - not realising her loved ‘Gran Gran Dolly’ had died.

Although it is not clear when Dolly died, Rhianna took to Twitter this morning to mourn her relative.

Her Grandmother, who her family affectionately called Gran Gran Dolly, died yesterday following a battle with cancer. She had been hospitalised at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Hospital in New York.

The festival organisers were clearly excited to have the pop star attend, with the website for the event reading: ‘Now it’s finally done. This summer Rihanna will play an exclusive Sweden concert as the main act at Peace & Love.

Rihanna has become one of the world’s most famous and successful artists. She has achieved great success with songs like Umbrella, Only Girl (In The World), Disturbia, What’s My Name, Man down and We Found Love to name a few.

‘We are extremely proud to announce Rihanna for Peace & Love 2012!’

Rihanna Not Happy About Chris Brown And Drake Fight

Chris Brown has been left with a bloodied face after an alleged bust-up with rival star Drake and his entourage.

British newspaper The Sun reported that the incident took place in a New York nightclub, sparked by the pair’s rivalry over pop singer Rihanna. According to the tabloid, Chris posted a photo of his injury - which they have published - on his Twitter site, but he later deleted it, along with several comments about Drake and his friends.

The incident happened in a New York club and was apparently started when Chris sent a bottle of champagne to Drake’s table. Drake then allegedly returned the bottle with a note saying “I’m f****** the love of your life, deal with it.”

This sent Chris - whose violent outbursts are hardly a secret - into a rage, and he walked over to Drake’s table to confront him. The brawl that happened as a result had to be broken up by the club’s security and unconfirmed reports suggest that Chris was hit in the face with a bottle during the fight.

Chris later tweeted a message saying: “How u party wit rich n**** that hate? Lol… Throwing bottles like girls? shameonya!”

He later deleted that post, as well as one that reportedly read: “N****s in the bathroom b**ch a** n****s.”

Chris split with We Found Love singer Rihanna in 2009 after a violent row left her with a bruised and bloodied face. Relations between Chris and Rihanna are thought to be improving, though the feud between Chris and Drake has been a long-running one.

Rihanna was apparently furious when she heard about the fight, saying: “You’ve got to be f**king kidding me” - a source told Hollywood Life.

The source continued: “She clearly doesn’t want anyone fighting and especially not over her. She saw the pic Chris tweeted and her face turned upside down. She’s a little distraught over this and hopes both of them are all right.”

Today, it has been alleged that Chris is speaking to police over the fight, which also left his bodyguard and an innocent female bystander with serious head injuries. TMZ reported that neither Chris or Drake are being treated as suspects by police, but rather as “a witness and a victim.”

Rihanna has revealed that she is missing something – she wants her curvy bum back!

All of the hard work Rihanna has done recently, together with the hard partying and drinking, has resulted in undesired weight loss, according to Rihanna. The singer has admitted that she has lost too much weight recently and that she’s eager to get back to her previous curvier shape.

“I’m a size 0 – and not happy about it!” the star tells Us Weekly. “I went way too far. I prefer myself a bit chunkier. I want my old butt back!”

With her busy schedule it’s no wonder that her hectic lifestyle is starting to take its toll on her body, but she’s showing no sign of slowing down. The 24-year-old singer wants to further her acting career - after a successful film debut earlier this year in Battleship – and go off on tour again.

Rihanna's partying has also concerned Jay-Z, who has ordered her to get to rehab: “Rihanna has been out of control for months. She was supposed to catch a flight back to the UK last week, but she ended up missing it, which was the final straw for management,” a source told Closer Magazine.

“Jay-Z hit the roof when he found out, and told Rihanna, ‘Go to rehab now or I’ll drop you from the label.’ She’s not happy, but she now feels she has no choice.”

Those closest to Umbrella singer Rihanna have been worrying about her out of control partying for months now, but it seems that the star missing a flight back to the US after a night out in London was the final straw for mentor Jay-Z, who has ordered the singer to get to rehab.

The 24 year-old hardly seems to miss a night out partying at the moment, and has been frequently spotted clubbing and drinking around the globe, visiting strip clubs and even being hospitalised for exhaustion. But now Jay-Z has warned the ‘Rude Boy’ star that he will drop her if she doesn’t get help.

Rihanna has been out of control for months. She was supposed to catch a flight back to the UK last week, but she ended up missing it, which was the final straw for management,” a source told Closer Magazine.

“Jay-Z hit the roof when he found out, and told Rihanna, ‘Go to rehab now or I’ll drop you from the label.’ She’s not happy, but she now feels she has no choice.”

At the time the star tweeted that Jay-Z had given her the day off to recover, but sources reveal she needs much more than just a day to get back on her feet.

“She’s reached breaking point. Rihanna says she’s physically and mentally exhausted and feeling lost. I think she desperately needs help and some time off - not just from work but from all the other stresses in her life too,” the source added.

The stress and upset over her Grandmother’s cancer battle is also said to be putting a strain on the young singer. She recently flew to New York just to spend a few hours with her beloved relative.

Rihanna was recently spotted partying in the same club as her ex boyfriend, singer Chris Brown. Chris reportedly sent some champagne over the the stars table, despite having a girlfriend.

Chris Brown's girlfriend won't be happy after he was spotted sending champagne to his ex, Rihanna, when they partied in the same nightclub at the weekend.

The former couple - who split in 2009 after the ‘Yeah 3x’ singer assaulted his then-girlfriend - sat at different tables at New York’s SL on Saturday, but onlookers say they were very aware of one another inside the club.

A source told the New York Post newspaper: ”After Chris made his way into SL with a group of friends, Rihanna pulled up with her own group of friends. The infamous exes sat far enough from each other to not be able to talk, but close enough to keep an eye on one another.”

The source continued: ”Chris sent Rihanna two bottles of Ace of Spades Champagne. DJ Sinatra had both Rihanna and Chris dancing at their tables.”

The meeting comes a few weeks after Rihanna came face-to-face with Chris and his current girlfriend, Karreueche Tran, at Los Angeles club Greystone Manor, but things were not so friendly.

A source said at the time: ”Chris and Rihanna sat a few tables away from each other and shot dirty looks at each other all night. No one saw them actually interact. Rihanna was escorted to the bathroom multiple times and walked by Chris’ table each time, not even batting an eyelash.”

Rihanna and Chris recently worked together on two tracks, ‘Turn Up the Music’ and ‘Birthday Cake’ and Rihanna recently admitted she was surprised about the backlash over the collaboration.

She said: ”I thought people were gonna be surprised that we finally did a record together, but I didn’t see how people could think it was a bad thing. In my mind, it was just music. I mean, if I went back to him [as a girlfriend], then that’s a whole different discussion. And if I ever do, then that’s something that y’all have to talk to me about when - if - that ever happens. Until then, look at it for what it is.”

Is Rihanna trying to hint at a reunion?

Rihanna poses topless for Where Have You Been shoot
Rihanna poses topless for Where Have You Been shoot

She put on her most energetic and theatrical-costumed performance to date in the music video for her new single Where Have You Been? when it was released at the end of last month, and now Rihanna has revealed just how she achieved her animalistic look for the film shot to accompany her latest track.

The 24-year-old star posted snaps of herself getting geared up for her several different appearances on her Facebook page yesterday, with many of the shots featuring the star baring plenty of flesh. Never one to shy away from baring ample flesh, Rihanna can be seen topless as she gets crocodile scales painted on her chest and spine by make-up artists.

The professionals did a good job of covering up her nipple piercing which she has flaunted while out on the event circuit on occasion. When she did not have the illusion of an animal exterior protecting her modesty, she concealed most of her chest using her hands and arms.

As well as photographs of her donning a leopard print robe and zebra skin ensemble, she also shared an image of her rehearsing for dance routine in the studio. She recently said: ‘Because my schedule has always been so busy, it never allowed for us to spend time rehearsing and making up dance moves. I was never going to shoot this video if I couldn’t do choreography. Because it would be pretty pointless. It would be disappointing.’

We recently revealed how Rihanna is considering a $1 million offer to pose naked for playboy. We can’t help thinking the star will accept this offer!

Rihanna sparks concern for her health, but is feeling ‘fine’ now

The ‘We Found Love’ singer raised concerns after posting a picture of herself with an IV drip on Twitter earlier this week.

However, Rihanna is now reportedly feeling “fine” and recovering from a recent bout of flu which sparked some concern amongst fans this week after the singer posted a picture of an arm connected to an IV drip on her Twitter page.

There has been no official statement that the singer was hospitalised, although a source close to the singer confirmed to People magazine that she had been taken ill: “She had a fever and flu since last week and needed an IV, but is fine now,” they told the publication.

The ‘Talk That Talk’ star had posted several messages on her Twitter account before the photo was revealed admitting she was feeling under the weather. However, shortly after the picture was posted, Rihanna also uploaded a shot at an airport as she headed from New York to Los Angeles, where she seemed healthy and fit.

Meanwhile, Rihanna has recently unveiled the official music video to her latest single ‘Where Have You Been’ which she will be performing on the final of American Idol later this month, on the same night that Jason Derulo makes his live return following his neck injury.
