Better safe than sorry?
As you may have heard, Rihanna was about to make history as the headlining act for the first ever Lollapalooza festival in Colombia this September.
However, we're now hearing that RiRi has decided to pull out of the 2-day concert series over fears of the Zika virus… causing the entire music festival to get cancelled!

Apparently, Lollapalooza Colombia organizers was unable to find a worthy replacement for headliner, despite the fact that both Wiz Khalifa and Lana Del Rey were scheduled to perform.
Luckily, South American music fans will be getting full refunds for their September 17 and 18 tickets… but we don't think this is a very good sign for the upcoming Olympics in Rio de Janeiro if even our musicians are scared of going down South, let alone our health-conscious athletes!
Do U think Rihanna is right for being so Anti-viral??

Lana Del Rey is one of the most experimental musicians in pop, and her newest creation seems to prove she's perfected the science of the music video.
The 30-year-old singer just dropped the third single Freak off her third major label album Honeymoon on Tuesday, but when we say "music video," we actually mean short film.

For those who don't know, back in November a man named Zachary Self broke into the singer's Malibu home and took multiple picture's of the lavish residence. Zach also left creepy and love struck notes for Del Rey.
Self captioned one of his obsessive photos:

Once police caught up with Mr. Self in December, he admitted to becoming obsessed with L.D.R. after taking hallucinogens. The troubled man also revealed he's bi-polar.
In light of Zachary's scary behavior, a judge sentenced him to 84 days in jail and 5 years probation. Self must also attend a residential program for a year.
Hopefully Zach will finally get the help he needs.
