Sometimes it all gets a bit too much! Rihanna broke down in tears live on stage on Tuesday, June 21, overwhelmed by her fans’ ability to sing every word of her hit songs. Watch the video above to see the Grammy winner’s emotional moment!
Struggling to overcome her sobs in order to start singing “Love the Way You Lie,” the Barbadian beauty hung her head and fought to regain composure as her Irish fans screamed out the words to the tune at the city’s Aviva Stadium.
The 28-year-old singer offered no explanation as to why she was struggling so much with her emotions, although she did say the Irish reaction to her performance was always special for her.
“I only have ever in my life heard an audience of people scream so loud that they sound like one voice and that only happens in Ireland, in Dublin,” the emotional singer told her audience, via RTE. “Thank you so much.”
In addition to breaking down on stage, RiRi was also half an hour late for her Anti World Tour performance, leaving some fans to wonder if there was something other than an overzealous fan reaction leading her to feel emotional.
“Rihanna crying in Dublin today has broken my heart 🙁 I hope bby is ok! <3,” one fan wrote via Twitter.
