She pulled out of the 58th annual Grammy Awards at the last minute because of a bout of bronchitis, according to reports. But at least Rihanna was brave enough to take to Twitter and apologize to her fans and CBS! Click here for the full details!
She’s so sorry! Rihanna, 27, dropped out of the 58th Grammy Awards at the last minute on Feb.15 after reportedly suffering with bronchitis. However, she’s let us know how apologetic she is with a tweet to her fans and CBS for ducking out of her performance — just moments before the Grammys started! What a trooper she is!
RiRi was due to sing during the first hour of the show, but producers had to make a late change to line-up when she cancelled her appearance because of bronchitis, TMZ reported.
“Based on Rihanna’s examination, after Grammy rehearsal today, Rihanna’s doctor put her on vocal rest for 48-hours because she was at risk of hemorrhaging her vocal chords,” a rep for the singer told Us Weekly in an official statement. “The antibiotics she has been on for 3-days did not kill the infection adequately therefore she cannot perform safely.”
#NAVY so sorry I couldn't be there ….. Thanks Grammys and CBS for your support tonight.

Rihanna was expected to sing new song “Kiss Me Better” which features on her ANTI album, the report said. She even rehearsed the song twice, it was claimed, so she was clearly desperate not to let her fans down.
