Rihanna was slated to sing “Kiss It Better” at tonight’s Grammy Awards, but it looks like we’ll all have to wait until her Anti tour kicks off to hear the song’s live debut.
Rihanna has canceled her Grammys performance, according to TMZ. RiRi is reportedly battling bronchitis and per her on-site doctor’s orders, she’s backed out of tonight’s performance in hopes of resting her vocal chords.
“[Rihanna] 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.”
On Friday of last week, RiRi appeared at New York Fashion Week to show her collaborative line with Puma. Her Anti tour is set to start later this month. Here’s hoping she gives those vocal chords some rest until then.
