Rihanna reportedly freaked out during her rehearsal before Monday’s Grammy Awards, which could have become the reason why she canceled her Grammys performance, as reported by Hollywood Life.
And now, after Rihanna canceled her Grammys performance at the last minute because she was struggling with bronchitis and was on meds, fans suspect that there might be more going on than just bronchitis.
Explaining Rihanna’s decision to pull out, a representative for the singer told media outlets that she took antibiotics for three days before the show, but they didn’t have the desired effect.
On Monday, just hours before the awards ceremony, Rihanna was examined by a doctor, who made a decision to put her on vocal rest for 48 hours because there was a risk of her vocal cords getting damaged.
According to a new report by Hollywood Life, Rihanna had a major freak out episode over how everything was happening during rehearsals for the Grammys. The 27-year-old Rihanna showed up at rehearsals for the show and was reportedly complaining loudly that everything was not going the way she wanted.
So was her decision to pull out from the awards show a result of being tense and upset at rehearsals or did Rihanna really cancel her performance at the very last minute for medical reasons?

A source then told Hollywood Life that the reports claiming that Rihanna had a major freak out episode at rehearsals, were “false information.”
However, if the source says the truth, it still doesn’t explain the fact why Rihanna, who was struggling with her vocal cords this week, sounded perfectly fine when singing at rehearsals, as it was noted by her fans.
Just two days before the rehearsals, Rihanna had a perfectly normal voice when singing at a pre-Grammys event.
The illness – or whatever the reason why Rihanna cancelled her Grammys performance – didn’t get in the way of the singer presenting a teaser for her Fenty Puma line on Tuesday, according to the Daily Mail.
The black and white teaser (it has only one brief moment in full color) that lasts 15 seconds) features Rihanna making a stunning appearance in front of the camera, wearing a choker and her black bob. The teaser also features some of the clothes from Rihanna’s new line.

At New York Fashion Week on Friday, Rihanna presented her new fall/winter Fenty Puma by Rihanna collection, which features lots of silhouettes inspired by the Japanese culture. While most of the looks in the collection were black and white, the NYFW guests still expressed their admiration for Rihanna’s new collection.
Rihanna appeared at the event with supermodel sisters Gigi Hadid and her younger sibling Bella, who helped her make the presentation of the collection even more stunning. The “Russian Roulette” singer even made an appearance on the catwalk herself in a graphic hoodie one-piece.

Rihanna was selected Puma’s creative director last year and since then she introduced into fashion her signature style of wearing elegant pieces with sports clothing.
Last month, Rihanna released her eighth album, Anti. Even though the “Diamonds” singer used to release one album per year, she worked four long years on this one. As predicted by Ryan O’Connell, a blogger for Uproxx, Rihanna can expect a prosperous career over the next ten years as there are a number of options available for her.
In particular, it is noted that Rihanna is expected to make a number of big collaborations with such music stars as Kanye West, Drake, Jay Z and Travis Scott.
