Rihanna Declares Brollie Amnesty

It's bad enough she came out with the daftest song I'd heard in a long time, she had to get all pissy about it.  Rihanna's head is obviously getting water-logged as she showers herself with delusions of grandeur.

Or maybe, to be her fan you must have the IQ of a dribbling moron. 

Apparently, the questionably-talented warbler has banned brollies from her concerts.  Citing "security fears" of people accidentally stabbing themselves or others by imitating her dance moves in her ridiculously asinine music video, they've taken to confiscating brollies from concert goers who obviously have impaired hearing and dubious taste.

It's blooming Scotland, mates.  It rains there.  A lot.  Even if you didn't have a naft song about it, people actually carry the things for practical reasons.

Daft gits.

Rihanna bans umbrellas from gigs 



Rihanna has banned fans from bringing umbrellas to her gigs in a move based on security fears.

According to the 
Daily Star's Playlist, fans attending the star’s gig on Monday (March 3) had their brollies confiscated by security guards before they got into the Aberdeen Exhibition Centre for the show.

Security guard 
Andy McDonald told the newspaper: “We don’t normally ask people to leave an umbrella outside. But we were taking precautions over a potential accident.

“We were told that 
Rihanna’s song features dancing with umbrellas on stage. We didn’t want the crowd following her actions and someone getting their eye poked out.”

Shonagh Henderson was quoted as saying: “I couldn’t believe it when I had mine taken off me. I always carry an umbrella as the weather is dodgy and snow was predicted to fall.”

To add insult to injury, there were actually merchandise stalls outside selling brollies with signs declaring that they would only be sold after the concert ... for the safety of everyone concerned.

Fancy a shish kebabed Rihanna, anyone?
