The Barbadian pop-superstar Rihanna was put a 24-hour health watch by her concerned handlers, who were scared that their golden-skinned goose would not lay anymore profitable concert eggs around the world.
Mercury Records execs grounded the 23-year-old singer after she apparently had an episode and almost cancelled a tour date in Dublin, Ireland.
Basically, since Ri Ri has been on tour all year to supplement the lackluster sales of her latest project — which is not an indictment of her album but of the record industry in general — her investors wanted to give their prized filly a day off. How thoughtful!
The execs clearly want a large return on their money irrespective of “baby girl’s” health.
According to Jezebel, Rihanna needs to fulfill her obligations, which includes writing music for her peers and filming a concert DVD later this month.
Part of this “health watch” includes trying to hire Mariah Carey’s trainer Patricia Gay to get her into better shape. Hmm, intense workouts aren’t the most obvious cure for a case of extreme exhaustion, but maybe Mercury knows something we don’t. In any case, let’s hope RiRi can take care of herself and get some rest.
Either touring is not that that taxing on the body or Rihanna is putting a bonus workout DVD because there is no reason for a person who is suffering from exhaustion to keep working out while touring. In the real world, most of the time, the cure calls for rest and relaxation.
Oh well, hopefully, everyone can tell when it comes to fame and fortune, there is more than meets the eye.
