Rihanna Cancels GRAMMYs PerformanceFebruary 15, 2016
The singer has bronchitis.
The ANTi era strikes again.
The GRAMMYs are currently underway, and though Rihanna announced she’d perform, TMZ reports it’s cancelled. Word on the street was Rihanna showed up for rehearsals, but doctors ordered she not perform due to the singer coming down with a case of bronchitis.
Sources connected to the production tell us, Rihanna has been struggling with bronchitis and is on meds. We’re told a doctor on site recommended that she pull the plug on the performance because it could permanently damage her vocal cords. Our sources say Rihanna wanted to perform but reluctantly decided she had to listen to her doctors. She left Staple’s and is going home.
She was planning on singing “Kiss It Better.”
Update: RiRi has since tweeted an apology to her fans:
#NAVY so sorry I couldn't be there ….. Thanks Grammys and CBS for your support tonight.
