Last week Rihanna fans were left disappointed after a sudden case of bronchitis forced the last minute cancelation of her planned Grammy performance [click here if you missed that].
Was the bronchitis excuse really a Jedi mind trick..?
Insiders tell Page Six the real reason Rihanna backed out just 30 minutes before showtime is because she got cold feet after watching Kendrick Lamar's rehearsal.
The backstage source claims,
“[Rihanna] felt like her performance couldn’t compare [to some of the other artists’], and she was trying to avoid the embarrassment because she knew it wasn’t the right comeback performance. She said, ‘I’m not doing this.’”Rihanna was scheduled to perform the slow ballad 'Kiss It Better.'
