The REAL Reason Rihanna Fled the Grammys?


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.'

I believe this. But again, why didn't her team have the prep work done and know the order of the show, etc. They could have worked with producers to have her open the show, do something slow or a duet with Jared Leto...Something dynamic.

Lol she's just now realizing her live performances are crap? Girl the public has known for years that she's a studio artist but when it comes to delivering vocals and stage presence she was NEVER that girl.

Now THAT is a way more believable story than the original. But once again, I bet 5 dollars she's pregnant. Why else would she cancel her entire world tour? Girl bye...

This howling bird is not good live. Studio and video are her thing. She's a good hustler, having many outside investments to keep her money going strong.

That's a beautiful photo. She does not strike me as one to have a baby. She's having way too much fun, and I think she's a smart girl.

It would have to be a far more creative excuse than that to be considered 'a jedi mind trick' so to speak.
What's the point of speculating now? Hasn't the grammys been over and done with for at least a week now?

Bitch PLEASE. Since when does Rihanna give a shit about ANYONE else let alone Kendrick? This is just PR to help sell her FLOP album which was botched by Roc Nation/Tidal.

And I would GAG if Rihanna was pregnant by Jay Z. Otherwise who cares.

Then Grammys production and sound were a complete fiasco. She was smart to cancel. Just look at how they took down the great Adele. Plus Thirst Queen Beyonce was there thinking she was futuristic with her bride of frankenstein gown. Smart cancellation from this very tired show.

^^You are right! Gwen Stefani took the show with her new video on her own set.

^^^^But she performed the night before for Lionel Richie. She done huge tours, She's surpassed Michael Jackson in singles but she's not a performance artists???? She is virtually the black Madonna. Wendy Williams keeps talking that she is not a legend but Madonna is? Wendy please keep track of your cheating tranny loving husband who beats you because of your mouth. Just ask Charlamagne.

Cosign with others, this story sounds legit. She sucks at singing and performing live so she and the viewers both won by her skipping to perform.

I actually really like her album, and I enjoy the guitar playing in kiss it better...but the album would be 1000 times better if she could sing. Go youtube the 2 minute song Higher. I cringed trying to listen to the song because she sound awful. The entire album she sound like she has a sore throat smh. I hope she takes this time to train her voice. I could take the yodeling, but this new singing she's doing is atrocious.

12:05 And just thing of the Artist with stage Presence who wasn't even Invited to perform. Many been talking that sh yt for years about her performances and this and that, and she seem to prove you wrong each and every time. I love how your ball headed no life having bishes are always trashing her, and she still come out smelling like a rose. She's this and she;s that when there are many with more talent then she have sitting on their b00tys doing nothing with that talent. Its going on over ten years you trolls has been trashing her , and she's still in the game , and shes not going anyplace any time soon. You weak bishes need to pack your lunches because Rihanna is here for the long haul. And how is she going to be afraid of Kendrick when she have so many songs that is Bigger and has been some of the Biggest Sellers. She have some songs that has sold over 5-Million in the Us along , keep right on trash talking her efforts.

Kendrick Won big, and good for him. Rihanna had a song that was number one for a long time, and has a Diamond Certificate, and has got many Platinum, and has sold over Five Million in the Us along, and it was Nominated for many Grammy's, and the song did not win shyt. I wished she would have performed one of her new songs , but she didn't and shes on to the next one. She have had songs that was more than deserving of a Grammy, and they over looked her, Just like they have did so many Other Artist in the game.

How is she going to be afraid of Kendrick or anybody else performance for that matter when she is the Digital Queen of her Generation, Get for real People. It was more to it than that. She was ill are something happened bigger than Kendrick Lamar, they are using him as a scape g0at.
