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!
