Contrary to reports issued last week, Rihanna is not taking the stage to perform at Sunday’s 52nd Annual Grammy Awards.
Dismissing a rumored invitation to perform, Rihanna believes last year’s ultimate cancellation of her performance might have put a damper on any chance at redemption Sunday.
“We messed their show up pretty bad last year,” Rihanna told Carson Daly this week, referring to the unfortunate incident with Chris Brown and its effect on the Grammys. “They might be a little mad at me.”
While Rihanna will not be performing, she has plans to attend the show, where she is nominated for two awards with Jay Z and Kanye West (“Run This Town”).
As reported last year, Grammy Award organizers scrambled to replace Rihanna and ultimately brought Al Green, Justin Timberlake and Boyz II Men in for a special performance at the last minute. – Singer’s Room
