Rihanna Has No Manner-annas Because She Made High School Kids Wait Forever
Barrington High school in Chicago won a concert with princess Rihanna after they produced a video set to her “Diamonds” song showcasing their charitable work. As you can imagine, the high school auditorium was filled with gleeful students all excited to see Rhianna perform. As they waited they ate snacks and giggled amongst themselves. They waited some more. They ate more snacks and braided each other’s hair. They waited some more. They watched images of Rihanna projected on a giant screen and listened to her DJ spin songs. They waited some more. And then they all turned into blood thirsty savages and cannibalized each other because they were sick of waiting, the end. Actually, according to The Chicago Tribune:
Rihanna was originally supposed to start her visit at 1 p.m.; on Thursday evening, the school announced that had been pushed back to 2 p.m. As of 5 p.m., she still wasn’t at the school.
â€œThank you guys for coming and waiting,â€ the Barbadian signer said, before paying tribute to the schoolâ€™s charitable works.
And then Rihanna performed for 16 minutes and left. The end. Actually, she gave some of Â the students tickets to her concert at the United Center. My favorite part of this is how she was manners-shamed by some of the more vocal teens in attendance:
“It’s one thing to be fashionably late. This is just rude. Our lives don’t revolve around a pop star,” said junior Patricia Halle, who nicknamed the afternoon “the survive Rihanna event.”
“Our school worked hard to win this. She should be more respectful,” Halle said.
Her friend Cassie Mullay said she was thinking about leaving, having waited since 1 p.m. “It’s so rude.”
Seventh-grader Jaki Mora said: “Rihanna is pathetic. She shouldn’t be making us wait for her.”
Rihanna you were schooled by a bunch of teenagers, serves you right! I would be so annoyed, having to wait that long for a 16 minute performance and a half-assed apology
The video that won is a wonderful example of the philanthropic endeavors of the students:
And if I do say so myself, like a gazillion percent better than any Rihanna song out there. Zing.
