Some girls need to slow down. The singer Rihanna was rushed to the hospital on the evening of May 8th, 2012, after a night of heavy partying, sources are reporting. Rihanna is dehydrated and exhausted with an IV in her arm for intravenous fluids. She tweeted the photo below from her hospital bed in New York, which you can blow up in the picture gallery.
The incident occurred after the Met Gala in New York City after a reported long night of “hard partying.” Rihanna felt exhausted and collapsed on the floor. She was rushed to the hospital from the party and hooked up to an IV machine. We understand that Rihanna was later released from the hospital and is on her way back to her Los Angeles home.
I hope that we are not looking at the next actress to crash and burn from too much excessive drugs and alcohol. We just went through the saga of Whitney Houston, who never could get her life in line. Such a wasted talent. Is Rihanna on drugs? How many times will she be hospitalized before we learn what is going on?
Now we see the signs from Rihanna, little whispers here and there. It was just Saturday night that she annoyed the cast of Saturday Night Live by skipping their dress rehearsal, which is the important last event before the show goes on air. She reported said that she was too sick to attend, but staff said she looked fine shortly after.
If Rihanna is exhausted, she needs to scale back on her work. But if she is into drugs or booze, she needs to get help. Those will dehydrate a girl as we all know. And it is not the first time she has been hospitalized under similar circumstances. Rihanna was rushed to the hospital in Sweden for exhaustion and flu last year, a story you can read about here, but you can watch the video below and learn that she was warned to stop partying so much.
At least she is out of the hospital, a story you can read about here. Rihanna is worrying me, though. Your thoughts?
