Rihanna makes a bold statement after being criticized for her “lackluster” show

Rihanna made a smashing comeback to the stage when she came out of semi-retirement to perform at an Indian wedding reception earlier this week. She reportedly received a whopping fee of $6.3 million for her exclusive show at the pre-wedding celebrations of the son of Asia's richest man. One would expect this to be a moment of thunderous applause, considering the diva has made her anticipated return to musical roots for the first time since her 2023 Super Bowl halftime show. On the contrary, her performance was met with severe criticism as fans were disappointed with the exhibition. She suffered a setback in particular because she had been paid a high fee for the appearance, which ultimately made her appear in a “lazy” light despite her superstar status.
