Rihanna seems hell bent on doing stupid shit every day, killing all her remaining brain cells with copious amounts of weed, drinking heavily, never sleeping, staying in f-cked up relationships… the list goes on and on. After being stuck with laryngitis earlier this month and forced to cancel two dates on her Diamonds world tour, it seems RiRi’s doctor has given her a pretty serious wake-up call, revealing that if Chris Brown doesn’t kill her, her hard partying lifestyle probably will.
From Heat (via 4Music):
Medical experts have now reportedly warned the songstress to slow down her hectic schedule.
“Rihanna’s illness was so severe that doctors warned it could take months for her to fully recover – there were worries that she’d have to cancel her entire tour,” a source told Heat. “They’ve told her that she needs to make some serious lifestyle changes, or risk this happening again.
“This has given her a scare. But Rihanna knows it’s partly self-inflicted. She loves to smoke, drink and stay up late. Her body was bound to need a break at some point. She’s now on a mission to start looking after herself.”
Yeah, oooookay. The day Rihanna starts “looking after herself” is the day her career is over, since she’s built so much of it on this highly sexualised, pseudo-gangster nonsense that means nothing but ultimately sells records, apparently. I say that as a Rihanna fan, as well – I eat that bullshit up with a spoon. Doesn’t mean I don’t realise how silly – and ultimately harmful – it all is.
