Rihanna cancelled her Grammy performance, according to TMZ.
She attempted to still perform, showing up at Staples Center, but she was not seen on the red carpet. TMZ is reporting that she attended 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 Staple’s 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.
It’s never good to see a performer have to cancel, especially because of health reasons. Rihanna would have been a great show at the Grammys.
