OK, there have been several stories regarding why Rihanna canceled her Grammys performance. Her team said it was bronchitis, but some “sources” said she had a meltdown over Beyoncé attending the show, while others said it was a seating dispute that cause the Bajan beauty to bail.
Well, here’s a new story to add to the list — according to PageSix, Rih Rih chucked the deuces due to a case of cold feet. Yep, that’s right, sources say that after rehearsing “Kiss It Better” from her new album Anti, she realized her performance could not compare to others like Kendrick Lamar. In all fairness Rih, NO ONE could compare with King Kendrick on Grammy night!
“She felt like her performance couldn’t compare [to some of the other artists’], and she was trying to avoid the embarrassment because she knew it wasn’t the right comeback performance,” said an insider. “She said, ‘I’m not doing this.’”
Apparently, the performance was supposed to be a throwback to an ’80s talk show. “James Corden was going to introduce her, and she was supposed to walk over, talk to him, then gyrate on the mike,” a snitch revealed.
Whatever the reason is, it sounds like it was for the best that she didn’t perform. Bottom line, it sounds like she just wasn’t ready. But you can catch her and Drake perform “Work” at the BRIT Awards tonight (Wednesday).
