Rihanna gets booed after arriving late to concert


Rihanna left fans infuriated after she arrived late to a concert in Australia on Thursday.

The singer kept fans in Adelaide waiting for over 90 minutes after her scheduled start time and was met with boos from the crowd when she finally appeared onstage, according to The Australian Press.

Addressing the audience, she said, "Adelaide, what the [expletive], I'm finally here. And I now remember how crazy my Australian fans are."

Many fans took to Twitter to vent their anger and frustration towards the pop star, with one devotee writing, "Not impressed with Rihanna at all. Left concert without seeing her and she was over an hour and a half late."

Another tweeted, "Thanks for a disappointing show last night... as if Adelaide doesn't suck enough already.... late."

 However, Rihanna appeared oblivious to concert-goers' outbursts - after her performance, she took to her Twitter blog to write, "ADELAIDE Thank you so much!!!"

The late start time in Adelaide came just two days after the singer was accused of showing up 40 minutes behind schedule in Perth on Tuesday for the opening show of her Australian tour, while she was also slammed by critics for appearing to slur her words.

She'd better stop pulling that diva stuff.  She has already been boo'd by fans here in the states a number of times, for failing to show for more than two hours, in one case.  Get a grip, Rihanna.  You may be good at what you do, but showing up that late is a sign of disrespect.  You are telling the world that you think you are more important than the fans who have paid to see you.  That's narcissism, and it will overshadow talent anytime.
