Reports have surfaced that Beyoncé persuaded Rihanna to perform for her Dublin, Ireland fans during the UK leg of the LOUD tour.
Sources say that Rihanna was suffering a tearful meltdown before getting on stage and called up her big sister Bey for some motivation and kind words. The 30-year-old mommy-to-be persuaded the Talk That Talk singer to complete the tour and take a year off.
In case you don’t know, the tour is a 101-date stint over 10 months. To the 23-year-old, a bit exhausted is an understatement. A source told The Sun:
She’s just a young woman who just wants to have fun, but she was feeling pretty low. It’s a mix of exhaustion and stress. She’s been partying hard to take her mind off things, but there are days when she wakes up and doesn’t even know where she is because of the travelling. It’s no wonder she is feeling down.
Despite being tired, the Bajan gyal has managed to top the charts, top UK and US charts with her sixth studio album and look impeccable while altering her image.
We send kudos and well wishes, indeed.
