Rihanna’s once mighty “Last Girl On Earth” tour seems to have run into a few snags over the last couple of weeks. Since embarking upon the North American leg of her tour, Rihanna has had to cancel six shows and those shows that haven’t been canceled are not completely sold out. The singer’s reps denied the cancellation were due to poor sales, instead blaming a scheduling conflict for shows being scrapped in Colorado, Indiana and California.
If poor sales are the root of the problem, Rihanna can add her name to a whole list of mighty artists who have had to scale back their summer concert plans. Limp Bizkit and Christina Aguilera scrapped summer tour plans altogether and instead plan to start touring in the fall. Other acts like the Jonas Brothers, Lilith Fair and American Idols Live- have also had to either cancel or reschedule shows.
In a bit of related Rihanna news- the singer is covering the August edition of Seventeen Magazine. There has also been talk [rumors] on fashion forums of the singer covering the September edition of Vogue magazine, which had previously been associated with Halle Berry. If this turns out to be true I think it is a fantastic move on the part of Anna Wintour. Halle is great and all, but she is also a safe choice. Rihanna however is hot at the moment and a true fashion diva. You can never go wrong putting her face on the cover of a magazine.
