The scary reason Rihanna cancelled her Grammys performance

RIHANNA

Rih-rih wasn't messing around when she said she couldn't perform at the Grammy Awards.

Don’t you just hate when you get a cold, and you have to call in sick to work?

Yeah, it's really terrible.

Well, Rihanna was put in that unfortunate situation on Monday night when she was forced to cancel her Grammys performance at the eleventh hour due to bronchitis. Her rep released a statement saying:

"Based on Rihanna‘s examination, after Grammy rehearsal today, Rihanna‘s doctor put her on vocal rest for 48-hours because she was at risk of hemorrhaging her vocal chords. 

"The antibiotics she has been on for 3-days did not kill the infection adequately therefore she cannot perform safely.”

Not only did RihRih still show up at the Awards, she even tried to rehearse before the on-site doctor told her she could risk damaging her vocal chords forever if she performed. What a trooper.
