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 â€œI donâ€™t want to see you texting your boyfriends or girlfriends. I donâ€™t want to see you catching any PokÃ©mons up in this bitch.â€
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 heâ€™s â€œnever showering againâ€ and also that the woman playing Pokemon Go was â€œlucky Solange never saw her.â€
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.
