Rihanna donates $5000 to school after late appearance
Rihanna has donated $5000 to Barrington High School after showing up late for an appearance in March.
The 25-year-old singer travelled to the Chicago school after it won her Shine Bright Like A Diamond video contest - but left fans waiting for over four hours when she showed up late.
While they waited for Rihanna, students were given free tickets, CDs and signed merch.
The money that she has now donated will cover the costs of security and signs for her tardy trip, as well as benefiting students.
