In light of the recent rib injury that Rihanna suffered … that I didn’t even hear about — she’s spoken out to her UK fans, telling them that she has no intention of cancelling shows because of the minor problem.
Reps for Rihanna confirm that the singer did, indeed, suffer a rib injury during a recent tour stop in Switzerland, but she’s recovering nicely and will not deviate from her jam-packed tour schedule. Rihanna spoke to the London-based Evening Standard newspaper regarding her injury:
“Eventually, I had to have it checked out. My ribs are still hurting, but I will be raring to go by London … I’ve had a few injuries, and one thing made another worse.”
Well, good on her. Unless, you know, her injury entailed being, like, pinched on her side by a fan or something, rib injuries are no fucking joke. I had a bruised rib once and it was one of the most painful experiences of my life. I’d rather go through childbirth twice over than have any rib-damage. On the real.
Congrats to Rihanna for not succumbing to the minor ailments that other touring performers sometimes do. You’ve proved it before and this only perpetuates the idea — you’re one strong lady!
Speedy recoveries, girl!
