Rihanna cancels second concert due to illness

After being hit with a double whammy of the flu and laryngitis, Rihanna's pulled out of her second concert this week.

The 25-year-old was supposed to perform in Baltimore on March 12, but the show's since been postponed. On Sunday, the "Diamonds" singer also had to cancel her Boston show because of her illness.

"#BOSTON this is the hardest thing for me to deal with! I feel like we've been waiting on this day forever, and I'm hurt that I let you down," Rihanna tweeted March 10. "I hate disappointing people that never ever let me down!! I'm so embarrassed about this! Thank you for your prayers and well wishes!"

Her Twitter account has been quiet since, and according to a statement, she's still trying to recuperate. She plans to next take the stage on March 14 in Philadelphia.

If you bought tickets for either her Boston or Baltimore show, you should hold on to them pending more information about rescheduling her dates.

    • Dr. Rosen

      Some individuals suffer from a latent genetic defect that causes gigantism later in life, often post-adolesence or in the early to mid twenties. A large forehead, elongated limbs and appendages are the most visible signs of this malady. There is currently no treatment known to medical science that will reverse the effects of gigantism after its onset, but certain medications can minimize further growth or mutation.

      There have been several depictions of gigantism in popular culture, most notably: http://i2.listal.com/image/1292426/600full-frankenstein-conquers-the-world-screenshot.jpg

      To trivialize or mock someone suffering from this disorder is shameful, and downright mean.

    We can only hope the laryngitis spreads to Gaga, Mariah, Madonna, etc. So they will have to STFU for a while.

    She should try inhaling some stink nuggets. They will cure laryngitis and get her puking the flu out of her quickly.

      I had diarrhea yesterday. Whew, somebody light a match! Been eating a lot of hummus lately, with diced onions and Frank’s Red Hot sauce to give it some flavor. I wonder if that’s the culprit? I also tend to get the sh!ts when I mix beer, ice cream and Frank’s sauce. Maybe I should change my diet.

      Know what else gives me the runs? Pepto Bismol and Alka Seltzer with a Seven-Up/Castor Oil chaser after a long, hard night of drinking. I pretty much camp out on the toilet with a stack of magazines until my legs go numb and bunghole burns like the depths of hades.
