Rihanna Soldiers On!

| Filed under: Rihanna

mx0077452.jpg

Despite recently injuring her foot, Rihanna knows that the show must go on!

It would have been easy for the Umbrella singer to use her crutches as a crutch and cancel a recent appearance, but NO. There she was Friday night at a radio concert, putting on a great show. She's a trooper and it's no surprise she's having the most incredibly successful summer of her life.

PerezHilton.com reader Colleen was lucky enough to be at the gig, and this is what she has to report back to us:

"Perez,

I just got home from attending a KISS FM sponsored concert in Dallas. Rhianna was scheduled to perform, but after reading your news about her recent injury I was worried that she would back out and cancel. However, she did just the opposite. Rhianna ended up making her entrance on crutches, and did the entire set from a chair set up in the middle of the stage. For her last song "Umbrella", she put on her boot so that she was able to stand. Rhianna was such a trooper about the entire thing, not to mention she looked great and sounded excellent. The crowd was really supportive and cheered during her slower-than-usual entrance and exit from the stage. Just goes to show that some people wont let a minor setback get in the way of their show and/or fans. Just thought you might like to know!"

You go RiRi!

    she was @ Best Buy Burbank a month ago and I must have been the ONLY one who knew who she was ( thanks to that annoying Umbrella song that is permanently stuck in my head! )…nobody came up to her, despite her desperate cry for attention with her GIANT gold chain around her neck….lol!

    I doubt she "sounded excellent". Rihanna has a weak annoying voice that sings bad pop songs, BUT I do give her credit for still performing very few people would do that.

    Maybe Amy Winehouse should take a page out of her book and stop being such a bitch canceling on people.

    Yeeeah she seemed to have pulled out of a calgary concert show opening for black eyed peas cuz she was sick. Yet they still sold ALL her merchandice before hand. Poor little girls who bought the shirts and alot of ppl were there to see her. She got a good booing though. AND did you catch her on PUNK'D.. RIGHT bitch!!

  39. JarJar says – reply to this

    Somehow I see this escalating into a battle between Rhianna and Beyonce…who can have the worst injury and still do their concert "for the fans"?
    Oh yes. This will end with a Battle Royale Steel Cage match with Chainsaws. Tasty.

    This is pretty amazing if you consider the fact that Britney Spears canceled her tour due to her "broken leg" a few years back. Rihanna, you rock!

    yo, primo, cubano…perez??? is homegirl paying your rent homie? rihanna or whatever her name is…is one of the least talented, empirical sellouts i have ever seen in my life. that biotch is wack, stop taking her checks my man. you are a minority with the white mans ear in your hand, use it for good not to promote some empire bitch who couldnt sing her way into actual respect from real music people….

    I remember seeing Rihanna arrive at the red carpet at the Much Music awards in Toronto in 2006. She had her camera out and took pictures of the crowd. That showed me that she was really grateful of her success.

  55. Eye Opener says – reply to this


    55

    That's what you get when you laugh at Beyonce! Better watch it Perez…maybe one day your arms will be placed in a cast too! Boy that would suck for you…how ya gonna type. And Rihanna, how ya gonna dance?

    Beyonce girl, that incident at your concert only re-evaluated what it means to be a true entertainment performer…who STOPS THE MUSIC because of a scratch!!

    serves that bitch right i love rihana but i was at her show and i regret buying a ticket bitch can't sing

  57. Angie From Chicago says – reply to this


    57

    What's really sad is that everyone is so selfish and self absorbed about what they want and think they are owed that a person's injury that rendered them on crutches would be frowned upon as a reason to back out. Instead of saying I hope she takes it easy and gets better and plans to come back later its we're worried she's going to back out and cancel. I mean damn, she's not responsible for what everyone else does to blow off their concerts but since none of us have jobs where we have to sing and dance every or every other night of the week, practice in between, and spend all our time mobile moving from city to city exhausting ourselves, how would we know what a toll it takes on anyones body. jerks.
