Barrington High School in Chicago won a contest in which students had to produce and send a video about the volunteer and community service work they do. The prize was a visit from RIHANNA.
It was supposed to go down on Friday, and it did . . . but several hours late. According to varying media reports, Rihanna was somewhere between three and a half to five hours late. About 2,500 students were left waiting for her in the school gym. And when she got there, she only stayed for 16 minutes before jetting to get ready for a concert nearby.
At one point before she showed up, Rihanna Tweeted, quote, “This Chicago traffic is not working.” That would be the closest thing to an excuse that she offered.
Although she did tell the kids when she got there, quote, “Thank you guys for coming and waiting.”
