Illness, cancellations and a delayed tour: WHAT is up with Rihanna?


Rihanna should be on top of the world right now. 

Despite production delays, she has just released her brand new album ANTI which is being well received by fans around the globe. 

As is usual with a new release from the hard-working singer, we expect to see her everywhere from making appearances at any televised she can get on to new videos being released a mile a minute. 

But Rihanna has been noticeably quiet. 

The star reportedly cancelled her performance at the Grammys at the very last minute citing bronchitis as the reason for her failure to turn up. 

However, reports swiftly followed that the 27-year-old had a meltdown during rehearsals for the performance and stormed out. 

Today, we are receiving news that the singer is now delaying her upcoming ANTI tour. 

According to Billboard, the tour is being postponed due to production delays. 

The hotly anticipated concert, which are due to start at soon as the end of this month, will now reportedly begin in mid-March. 

The new album was also flooded with production issues as reports circulated that Rihanna was desperately looking for more songs worryingly close to the release date. 

Having changed record labels since her last release and as we still wait for a music video for new single Work featuring Drake, we hope all is actually okay over in the Rihanna camp. 

Someone needs to be able to give Queen Bey a run for her money.
