Awww, Rihanna Actually Was Sick

Last Saturday Rihanna was condemned by Lorne Michaels and SNL producers for missing dress rehearsal and being seemingly healthy in between performances during the live show. Turns out, the poor little dear really was sick.

She posted a picture of this IV in her arm after several of her followers expressed concern over her lack of timeline updates, the very same day she went to the Met Gala.

According to E! she had the flu accompanied by a fever and TMZ wrote that she was given a penicillin shot before SNL, which explains two things: why she didn’t completely collapse and the reason for the sluggishness and watery eyes.
