So what was the doctor's diagnosis? Too much partying!!
Ok, so it actually turns out that RiRi has laryngitis, and this isn't the first time the sickness led to her canceling gigs. The singer took to Instagram to express her disappointment, saying:
"I was sick since San Diego! I kept working because I thought two days off after the Vegas show would be enough time to recover and I f*cked up, those were two days off from hell and today is not different! I’m sad and disappointed about it! I had all kinds of plans for Houston!"
We definitely hope she makes a speedy recovery and gets back on her Diamonds tour, but apparently the whole thing could have been avoided if she just eased back on all of the partying!
According to a source, the singer got a stern talking to from doctors and knew she was partly to blame for the sickness:
"They've told her that she needs to make some serious lifestyle changes, or risk this happening again. This has given her a scare. But Rihanna knows it's partly self-inflicted. She loves to smoke, drink and stay up late. Her body was bound to need a break at some point. She's now on a mission to start looking after herself."
Ick! Smoking is already SO SO bad for you, especially when your voice is your livelihood. And combining that with late nights and drinking is NOT a good idea when you're on a rigorous touring schedule!
Luckily, fans have been reassured that the cancelled shows will all be rescheduled, but hopefully this helps Rihanna realize that she need's to take better care of herself when she's traveling!
In the meantime, get some rest RiRi! You need it!
