Rihanna teaches grabby fan a lesson

20 June 2013, 07:25

Birmingham – You shouldn’t mess with Rihanna! The Diamonds singer was walking in front of the crowd while singing We Found Love when an adoring fan just couldn’t let go of his star.

Getting annoyed while she was trying to walk away, Rihanna pre-empted her body gaurd by hitting the fan with her microphone.

The incident would probably have been unreported, if not for the fact that another fan had the whole incident on video, which in one day has already gotten over 39 000 views on YouTube.

Rihanna was crowned on Tuesday by Billboard as the new YouTube Queen, beating out Justin Bieber by two million views and 3.7 million channel subscribers.

The Diamonds World Tour still has many stops to go, the next Sunderland and Dublin, where conservative locals covered up naked posters of Rihanna. Hopefully us South Africans will show better decorum when Rihanna's tour makes a round in South Africa in October.
