Rihanna cancels concert due to flu

Rihanna's fans in Sweden unfortunately didn't get to see the pop star perform on Monday night, as she came down with what sounds like a wicked case of the flu.

RiRi - who was not hospitalized, although a tweet she sent out may have made you think otherwise - apologized to fans in a statement on Monday.

"I am sorry to everyone who was coming out to my show in Malmo Sweden," the "We Found Love" singer said. "I was so excited to perform for you all. It would have been a great time…so much better than being sick with the flu, ugh! I'm really disappointed I couldn't be there."

Website RihannaDaily.com added that Rihanna's "Loud" tour promoter, Live Nation, hopes to reschedule the event for a later date.

Tickets to Monday's show will still be valid at the rescheduled concert, but refunds are also available at the original point of purchase.

The singer's next album, "Talk That Talk," will arrive November 21.

    Not me. My favorite butts are boston butt roast. If you fix one in a baking bag with onions, potatos, and carrots, you will be a mighty happy camper.
