Rihanna: I Was Sick And Overworked While Making My Album

Give the woman a break!!

Rihanna's family is slamming her management for overworking RiRi until she gets sick. After hearing Rihanna explain what she went through while recording her album in October, we totally agree!

The pop star wasn't given any time to sleep, and was hooked up to an intravenous drip in to replenish fluids while she battled illness. (They put her back on the IVs earlier this week!)

RiRi recently described her struggle:

"This is the craziest schedule I've ever been on in my entire life. One morning I woke up and started f**king crying so hard. I finally just got to my bed from the IV and I was just like, 'Good I can actually get to sleep tonight' because we stayed up (all night) and I finished (the album) at 5pm the day before. So now I'm like 'One good night of rest'. I get in bed and it could not have been two hours in before my phone started going off. I was so frustrated that I kept ignoring the phone. Every time it would go off but every time I would ignore it. It would be another burden on my shoulders ’cause I know it has to get done. I know I'm sick but I'm the only person that can get it done so it was so frustrating…. I was so angry, I was so overwhelmed that I was sick it felt crazy.."

What happens when the pop star get's angry? Ri admits that instead of turning into the Hulk:

"I started crying. I cried for 10 minutes really, really hard in my pillow. If I cry it's because I'm very angry and I can't do anything about it, because I've run into a dead end, like nothing you can do about a situation, that's when the tears would come down. But this time I needed to hear it, I almost wanted to punch somebody."

But we all know she isn't the violent the kind of person that punches people. Instead, she did what, according to her, she had too do:

"(I) got up, and I showered and started to work. I wrote all my thank-yous (for the album sleeve). I thought, 'They don't have a choice. I'm the only person they can get answers from and there was nothing I could do about it'."

OMG! You need some rest guuuurl, you NEED to give yourself a break!

We love you Ri, your health comes first!

    maybe she should not go out drinking every night if she is so tired..

  2. 2

    I agree. Give this woman a break! I think she should take a few years off!

  3. 3

    Oh please! She can try and blame in on too much work, but everyone knows it is too much partying. A lot of us have times in our lives when we work hard - just ask any single mother - but we sleep when we can. We don't go to strip clubs and party all night long.

    Ho bag…. if she wasn't out boozing and sloring every night she would be able to get sleep.

    Lots of people over work and work while they are sick. People who make boatloads less than her. I'm not saying it doesn't suck for her, but when I'm too tired after working a lot I go home and sleep, not out partying with my friends. There's always stories of her clubbing, maybe skip some of that and get some R&R.

    "I was sick and overworked" translation "I was high and had the clap"

    as if her partying and drugs had nothing to do with it….perez you're just so biased it's disgusting….if it's someone you like, they can do absolutely no wrong no matter how fucked up they are…..but be it someone you dont like and you call them out for just breathing basically…..spiritual journey my ass, i watched that oprah thing with you, you sounded like a complete moron

    Sorry, but the only thing 'overworked' when making a Rihanna album is the guy that has to press the auto-tune button.

  10. 10

    That's weird, i swear on everything that i actually heard at least half of that statement word for word in a previous interview about 3 to 4 months ago…..she's in total denial and thats the most dangerous thing, look at Beyonce im sure her schedule used to get super busy, if not worse and you didn't catch her in no hospital getting IVd up, why? because she wasn't on some dudes shoulders at Coachella, rolling blunts etc etc etc. I rest my case…but still love you riri

    I don't want to belittle how hard she probably works, but she could always stop. I'm sure she has a lot of pressure from her label and everyone around her, but like she said, she's the one that has to do it. So if she says "you know what, I need a day off. Heck, I need a week off." They aren't going to drop her from the label, they can't 'fire' her.

  12. 12

    A doesn't stop her from partying and showing up at every event that wants her. She is a fame hungry diva…if she really wanted time off, she could have it.

  13. 13

    I definitely don't feel sorry for her. She wasn't too tired to forgive Chris Brown and look where that got her. Fame whore.

    Rihanna looks gorgeous and I'm glad to hear she is feeling better. I hope she is able to take an extended break soon to rest her mind and body. I do not think any of us can understand what it is like to walk a day in the life of a celebrity and it shouldn't matter what she chooses to do in her spare time because she is 24; not 14 or 34. She is single with no children and I'm almost certain many who are and was her age were partying too but were also handling important responsibilities and obligations like Rihanna is obviously doing. She is entitled to do whatever she pleases because it is HER life, her body, her career. Not ours. Get your life people and examine yourselves before you harshly criticize what she does in her personal time. God loves you Rihanna and so does your fans.

    Honey, you are seen partying/going to strip clubs/vacationing/getting high or looking high & drunk,or strolling the streets half naked to get attention almost every day. You are also rich as f*ck. Boo-f*cking-hoo! We regular people actually have real issues to cry about because bills can't be paid, or you can't afford to put food on the table for your family. You poor thing, go cry in your stacks of millions, wh0re.

  16. 16

    god poor her

    that level of exhaustion is awful i hate when people dont let me sleep

    sounds like they worked her to near death

  17. 17

    There is something that they can put in an IV to help a good hangover go away so I am thinking that is what this skank was hooked up to. She was really hung and needed to get some help quick. As one other said, please rest ri ri. We all really need the break of not seeing or hearing your ugly ass and voice for a long long long time. Give us all a rest.

    want some cheese with all that whine???bitch

    Re: KarrieBelle – the rest of her life would be fine with me.

    Re: raypearson – you sound like the trash you are claiming she is. your sad

  21. misshiroshima says – reply to this


    Re: it-is-what-it-is – how is she a whore? because YOUR sexually oppressed that makes her a whore?
    and smoking weed is not "getting high". step into the modern world lame ass. do you smoke ciggs/drink alcohol/consume aspartame or other artificial sweeteners/eat animal products? if you answered yes to ANY of those then you "get high" and/or have addictions

    Re: Lilac333Re: sstoner – are you a woman who has been beaten by a man they love? if not, please close your mouth and use your eyes and ears instead.

    most of you people leaving comments are filled with so much anger and hate. it is very very clear that your life experiences are mostly regular/boring/struggling/prejudice/laziness/being knocked-up/giving birth to blood-sucking kids/having lame relationships/not enough vacations/too much work at a dumb paper-pushing job
    just basically: boring wasted lives which makes you HATERS. rihanna is amazing to watch, read about and listen to. what would you like her to be? shes fine the way she is. you on the other hand……yawn

  24. 24

    So quite; no one would miss you.

  25. 25

    I am so sick of rich people whining. And posting tweet pics of IVs to garner whoa is me bullshit sympathy for twat followers. If this ghetto bitch is powerful enough to be listed in Forbes, she has enough power to tell her record company to back the fuck off. Rhianna, I do not feel sorry for you. Not one bit.
