Rihanna Smacks Fan With Mic, Is Not Great at Conflict Resolution

+

It must be tough to be so loved that people literally cannot be around you without reaching out to get a hold of something: your hand, your hair, your beautiful lips, your adorable little eyes, your resplendent trachea, etc. But Rihanna took the whole violation of boundaries thing veeeeeery seriously at a concert in England when one of her fans got a little too grabby as she was strolling the front row of the audience, briefly locking hands with all the mortals who’d paid to see her. Rather than relying on one of her hulking security guards to separate fan from fantasy, she decided to give him or her a righteous smacking across the head with her microphone, as this video shows. We can’t see if she made contact, but the people around the smackee certainly look shocked. Will he or she continue to blast “Umbrella” while undulating in silence under the glow of a single lightbulb while gently fondling oneself? Was Rihanna out of line by taking justice into her own hands? Who knows, but the smoking gun might be this Youtube comment: “You know what’s really funny? The audio never stopped when she took the mic away, CAUGHT LIP SINGING!” Lip singing indeed.
