Oh Rihanna…please try harder.
Scheduled to make an appearance in Chicago’s Barrington High School, the singer made 2000 kids wait for more than three hours for her to appear.
And when she did arrive, she only stayed for 12 minutes. Blaming the traffic for her tardiness, Rih tweeted, “This Chicago traffic is not working,” along with a picture of cars in front of her.
The singer was to congratulate the winners of the Shine Like a Diamond contest, in which schools and students submitted videos and were recognized for giving back to their communities, their creativity and school spirit.
But despite Rihanna’s short stay, she DID send a series of tweets honouring the school.
This is a nice gesture, but being late is never cute. At least she made an appearance instead of bailing on the kids.
