Rihanna Showed Up To A Concert So Late That The Audience Threw Food At Her

Rihanna in Manchester UK on Diamonds tour July 2013Listen guys, you can feel free to go to as many Rihanna concerts as you want, just bear in mind that any number of odd things could happen to you, as an audience member. And kind of crazy things, too. Not the well-meaning life advice you get in the front row of a Beyonce concert. At a Rihanna concert, you’re opening yourself up to a spectrum that starts on the low end with getting hit in the face by the singer herself and extends all the way into lap dance territory, with RiRi pulling you up onstage and gyrating on your manjunk. It’s really a crapshoot out there.

One of her new favorite hobbies is showing up incredibly late for her own show, which is a really fun way to punish her most loyal fans for supporting her. Like, I enjoy Rihanna music, but I’m not a big enough fan to ever shell out actual money for a ticket to her concert. And I’m rewarded for that apathy by not being forced to stand around waiting in an overheated stadium while Rihanna takes fifteen more shots, gets a new tattoo on the way to the venue, and finally pours herself out of the car and onto the stage. It’s a nice system she’s set up where she loses herself fans at an impressive rate.

But anyway, she’s been showing up later and later, and at one of her most recent shows, she was so late that the audience actually lashed out at her while she was still onstage. She went on for her Manchester, UK show late, as usual, and during her lackluster performance of ‘Rude Boy’ (fitting), an audience member threw a bag of potato chips up onstage at her, prompting this reaction:

In case you can’t understand, Rihanna finishes the song and says to the audience:

“There’s a good crazy and there’s a bad crazy. When you throw sh*t up here, that’s an epic fail…I swear to god, cut that sh*t out. Really, chips? Chips though?!”

I understand her frustration at stuff being thrown at her while she’s performing, but she should definitely be a little more proactive about getting to the shows as well. Those people have paid good money to see you, and it’s not fair to keep them waiting, no matter how much fun you’re having partying. What I don’t understand, though, is why she’s so specifically upset that they threw potato chips. And what she thinks the difference is between good crazy and bad crazy. I’d love to see an op-ed piece on that, RiRi. Get right on it. Ideally on Twitter, 140 characters at a time.

Also Rihanna, you’re in the UK, baby, so it’s not chips, it’s CRISPS. Get it right.

    i was there on the night and she arrived 15 minutes late so really thats an improvement. But seriously this article is exaggerating how late she was and the aggression f the audience

      I’m glad she was only fifteen minutes late! Sounds like you got lucky! I just know there have been a lot of reports all summer that she’s been over an hour late on several occasions.

    I detected notes of the author having a real personal problem with Rhianna — not that I’m a fan or even care about the singer, but when I noticed she also wrote yet another article slamming (and as Jake said, over-exaggerating, which was my impression too) Rhianna and praising Beyonce, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of the author’s writing is to… I don’t know, promote her favorite over the two (Beyonce & Rhianna.) Either way, Crushable, I’d be publishing (or just re-hiring!) some better work. Errors, personal issues… Not cute.

      So cute!

    when you buy a concert ticket or a ticket of any kind you enter into an agreement, if this agreement is broken as in being so late to a concert you have to leave or has spoilt your night, you are entitled to sue

    • Alexis Rhiannon

      Suing is when you throw your potato chips at the cause of your suffering, right?
