'How can you be so f*****g bad' Rihanna's furious fans turn on her after shambolic performance at Swedish festival
01:14 GMT, 1 July 2012
It was billed as a coup for Sweden, having Rihanna headline the annual Peace & Love Festival.
However, the revellers at the music
gathering were unimpressed when the We Found Love hitmaker appeared on
stage 45 minutes late on Saturday.
As if that wasn’t bad enough, furious fans took to Twitter to claim that she appeared intoxicated and wasn’t singing live.
Shambolic: Fans in Sweden claim Rihanna, seen here performing in Norway, arrived on stage 45 minutes late and was under the influence
One disgruntled fan wrote ‘Really don’t
feel like watching Rihanna under the influence gig. Who the f*** allowed
her on stage in this state #pal12’.
Some fans questioned whether Rihanna was
under the influence of drugs as her performance was so bad, with one
person calling her ‘disgusting and shameful’.
The Twitter user wrote ‘Rihanna is
blatantly under the influence of drugs and is allowed to perform in
front of children and young people. It is disgusting and shameful.
Another added ‘Crowd walk-out from #Rihanna concert at #peaceandlove #pal12 #Sweden claiming she's too high to sing properly.’
Although the crowd waited 45 minutes for Rihanna to arrive, many left soon after she started singing because of her poor performance
‘Playback and being high as a kite is not rocking P&L #Rihanna #pal12’ another wrote.
Walking out of the gig wasn’t enough for
one person who added ‘Rihanna is dead in my eyes… How can you be so
f****** bad #pal2012 #pal12.’
As if her shambolic performance wasn’t
enough of an insult to the people of Sweden, Rihanna then dedicated Redemption Song to Norway after getting the countries mixed up.
Rihanna was referring to right wing extremist Anders Behring Breivik, who killed 77 people in twin attacks in Norway last year.
A concertgoer tweeted ‘Note to Rihanna.
Borlnge isnt't Oslo and no people weren't killed by Breivik here… But
thanks for coming #pal12.’
Rihanna had played at the Kollen Festival in Oslo on Friday and had clearly confused the two countries.
Rihanna further upset the Swedish crowd by confusing them with Norway where she performed the night before
It is a far cry from the excitement which greeted the announcement that Rihanna would perform at the festival.
The website for the event said ‘Now it's
finally done. This summer Rihanna will play an exclusive Sweden concert
as the main act at Peace & Love.
‘Rihanna has become one of the world's
most famous and successful artists. She has achieved great success with
songs like Umbrella, Only Girl (In The World), Disturbia, What's My
Name, Man down and We Found Love to name a few.
‘We are extremely proud to announce Rihanna for Peace & Love 2012!’
A spokesperson for the singer was not available for comment.
Exhausted Rihanna has been on a punishing touring schedule which could be blamed for her late arrival and poor performance
