Rihanna has a special message for the Navy members attending her ANTI Tour: Lay off the Pokémon Go.
It seems like a no-brainer request. These people shelled out major bucks to see their queen, so you’d think they’ll give her their full attention during the concert. But alas, here we are. The lure of Pikachu is so strong, Rihanna has to remind her own damn fans to put down their phones during her concert.

“I don’t ’wanna see you texting your boyfriends and your girlfriends,” she said during her concert as a warning. “I don’t want to see you catching any Pokémons up in this b–ch.”
So, will her fans honor her request? We’re skeptical. Even a member of the Beyhive–the most rabid fan base–couldn’t resist playing the game while sitting front row at the Formation World Tour. If Beyoncé can’t get people to stop snatching up Charizards, there is no hope for the rest of our faves.
RiRi, if you can’t beat ’em. Join ’em. You’d make an excellent Pokémaster.
