Rihanna Just Cancelled her Grammy Performance
by HOT 96.9
Rihanna has just cancelled her Grammy performance.
[TMZ] The singer arrived at the Staple's Center but did not walk the red carpet. She went to rehearsals and left.
Sources connected to the production tell us, Rihanna has been struggling with bronchitis and is on meds. We're told a doctor on site recommended that she pull the plug on the performance because it could permanently damage her vocal cords.
Our sources say Rihanna wanted to perform but reluctantly decided she had to listen to her doctors. She left Staples and is going home.
She was going to sing "Kiss Me Better." She even rehearsed twice but in the end the show just could not go on.
