I am a fan of Rihanna’s and I admire her work ethic, but I think she is really pushing herself too hard. She is on a 10 month 101 date tour and the exhaustion is starting to show. I’ve documented on this websites some situations that would call into question her health, such as her hospitalization in Sweden which led to cancellation of two shows, her late start to concertsetc. Rihanna has put out three albums back to back, worked on a movie, posed for numerous photo shoots and crisscrossed the globe, even flying to a funeral in Barbados and went right back to tour for crying out loud.
Over the weekend the Bajan popstar headlined Capital FM’s 2011 Jingle Ball in London and I gotta admit, this was not a stellar performance. She started off strong with her performance of “Only Girl In The World”, she followed with S&M which to me was not all that bad (I mean I am not expecting Leona Lewis or Melanie Amaro type singing when I look at a Rihanna performance) but by the time she sang “What’s My Name?” the decline in her vocals started to show. I mean the backup and audience sang most of the song. Then came the ballad “California King Bed” which she struggled through, then “Umbrella” and the closing song “We Found Love” from her recently released Talk That Talk album.
I have posted all songs in order of performance. Is this a case of Rihanna just tired from jumping around onstage (to be fair its not easy to sing and dance) or are the rigors of a intense tour schedule showing through this set?
What your take? Should she go chill on a beach some where and just free up herself???
