I guess Rihanna didn’t want to be left out after Aerosmith’s frontman Steven Tyler took a nosedive in a hotel shower last week.
Not to be outdone, the 23 year old singer was taken to a Swedish medical institution yesterday and hooked up to an IV drip.
Rihanna is currently in the middle of her world tour and was to perform in the city of Malmo, but had to cancel. She tweeted an apology to her fans as well as a photo of her arm with an IV drip connected to it.
According to Rihanna she came down with the flu. A representative of Live Nation stated that she was “. . . not in any condition to conduct a concert.” She was expected to continue her tour as scheduled.
Rihanna’s not the only one coming down with the flu. George Michael recently had to cancel the start of his comeback tour in London’s Royal Albert Hall due to a viral infection.
Rihanna was recently named the world’s sexiest woman alive in their November 2011 issue.
