BadGal RiRi Gets Teary-Eyed in Dublin


It’s not often you catch a tear rolling down Rihanna’s face. We’ve seen her emotions expressed through gritty lyricism and intense dramatic performances, but she’s a rebel and the grungy attitude she carries brings more intrigue to her persona.

So, what happened in Dublin that caused BadGal RiRi to overflow with emotion and breakdown in tears?

The Star Tribune quoted the “Love On The Brain” singer as being in awe of the love shown from her #RihannaNavy fan base.

Before belting out the first lyric to the temperamental song, “Love The Way You Lie,” Rihanna’s eyes were already sparkling with tear drops. As the concertgoers sung every lyric, she had to briefly step away from the mic to regain composure as the tears welled up.

“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 Sun quoted RiRi as saying. “Thank you so much.”

Tears and all, she never lost her BadGal swag.
