LOL, okay, Rihanna. I can respect that!
Rihanna was playing a concert in Lille, France on Saturday when she essentially told the crowd to pay attention and get off their phones. A fan posted a video on Twitter (which has since been deleted) in which Rihanna is heard saying “I don’t want to see you texting your boyfriends or girlfriends. I don’t want to see you catching any Pokémons up in this bitch.”
You may think it’s a little crazy that someone would play Pokemon Go at a concert they spent good money for…but, this is the age in which we live. An Instagram user who had incredible stageside tickets to Beyonce in Paris last week posted a video of a woman playing Pokemon Go instead of watching BEYONCE, who was A FEW FEET AWAY. Right after that Beyonce walked by the crowd and touched a bunch of people, including the fan who was filming the video and screaming wildly. He wrote that he’s “never showering again” and also that the woman playing Pokemon Go was “lucky Solange never saw her.”
I guess what we’re all trying to say (including Rihanna) is GET OFF YOUR PHONES. Unless you’re using it to take a picture of Riri’s odd tour costumes. They might as well be Pokemon go characters in and of themselves.
