Rihanna Hospitalized after Zurich Concert
Rihanna was admitted to a hospital in Switzerland after her concert on Monday night but was immediately released and will continue with her “Last Girl on Earth” European tour, People reports. Rihanna’s rep said the singer “had an injured rib and went to have it looked at to be sure it was nothing serious, and it wasn’t.” The 22 year-old pop star was taken to a private clinic around midnight from Zurich’s Hallenstadion venue and was released around 3 am.
In fact, the injury was too minor that Rihanna was back on stage the next night. Reports said Rihanna performed to a sold-out crowd in Lyon, France, on Tuesday and she will be performing in Marseille on Wednesday. She is scheduled to open a 25-stop North American leg in Seattle this July, with Ke$ha expected to join her.
Ke$ha, who stormed the Billboard Hot 100 singles with “Tik Tok,” said she is “excited to be on the same stage as Rihanna,” adding that “she’s obviously an incredible performer, singer, woman. So that tour’s going to be so much fun.”
