Rihanna Turns Up 5 Hours Late For School Visit… And Then Stays For Just 15 Minutes

Published: Saturday 23rd Mar 2013 by Sam

Oh Rihanna.

Just like her stage performances, her charitable efforts seem unable to proceed without problem. Case, point, her recent visit to Barrington High School in Chicago.

Full story (and video) after the jump…

The tabloid darling was scheduled to make an early AM stop at the school to visit the 2500 students who took part in a project she sponsored. Titled ‘Shine Bright Like A Diamond’, the scheme saw schools across the United States submit videos highlighting their charitable work – with the winning school receiving a visit from the model herself.

And while Barrington was indeed blessed with the 25 year old’s presence, this came after a 5-hour delay (the entire school day) which the star would blame on “traffic” (this despite already being in the area for her ‘Diamonds World Tour’). Once there, she would only spend 15 minutes – briefly mingling with the still-excited teens and posing for the all-important photo opp. {Source}

Check out a clip from the visit below…

Being the fair and unbiased site we are, we feel it best to give Rih the benefit of the doubt and, above all, commend her (and her PR team) for participating in such a worthwhile cause.

  2. King B>Rihanna March 23, 2013

    maybe she should have sing that would be a nice treat for the kids.

    (wait how the f*** am I kidding0

    • XtinaaLovee March 23, 2013

      Just had to be first on a Rihanna post huh

  3. King B>Rihanna March 23, 2013

    #bow down b******.

  4. POP ROYALTY ( RUDE BOY) March 23, 2013

    at least she didn’t perform for a terrorist and then performed for the UN.

    now that was charity , right ?!!!


    • I’M NOT THROWING SHADE, BUT… March 23, 2013

      Hey @Pop…

      You know I love you, but what’s going on?

      I thought you liked Beyonce and now all of sudden – you’re shading her?

      So, have you jumped from liking Rih. to hating her and liking Bey, and now you hate Bey and are back to praising Rih.

      Im just confused Girl… 😉 xo

      • POP ROYALTY ( RUDE BOY) March 23, 2013

        don’t over-work your mind to understand it 😉

    • ENOUGH ONIKA (KMART QUEEN) March 23, 2013

      You trying to dig for something I see…

      • POP ROYALTY ( RUDE BOY) March 23, 2013

        Yup , Bey’s next #1 , but i still can’t find a one for her after 5 years.

        pray for me to find it 😆

      • ENOUGH ONIKA (KMART QUEEN) March 23, 2013

        So what does that have to do with Rihanna shitting on her high school fans??

  5. Drew March 23, 2013

    “Being the fair and unbiased site we are, we feel it best to give Rih the benefit of the doubt…” I have to disagree, I do think this site is very bisaed. I think it’s always great when an artist takes time to do charity or help out with their community, etc…but how does traffic make you 5 hours late when you’re already in Chicago for the event & tour? That does not make sense. Try driving in Los Angeles during hush hour and see how crazy traffic is but even that would only make you 2 hours late not 5.

    • Drew March 23, 2013

      *Rush* hour

  6. mezzy March 23, 2013

    Sam get off of Rihanna’s nuts.

    • Common Sense March 23, 2013

      Standing up for this classless, talentless, tactless c***? Pathetic. I suggest you take your lips off Rihanna’s ass.

      • mezzy March 24, 2013

        I suggest you get off of a Rihanna post if you don’t like her. Clearly you secretly do or you have nothing better to do with your time.

  7. ProfessorGQ March 23, 2013

    Those kids got their lives. Good for them.

    • taeys March 23, 2013

      YASSSSSS! I’m glad Rihanna did this! I’m happy the kids got to see a big starr!

  8. THE GREAT LACEFRONCE. March 23, 2013

    YES SAM!!!!!!!!! You betta stan for the QUEEN!!! How many posts can we expect for Rih today??????????? 🙂 😉

    SADLY, this STILL wont help THIEFonce land a #1 single NOR will her new FLOP album outsell Una or TTT(Which both outsold 4orgotten 😉 🙂 😉

    • Beyonce is touring to pay back $50 mil to pepsi after blowing IT! March 23, 2013

      Did you hear about the tea that was leaked about why beyonce album is being stalled – even scrapped? Well, according to snitches ( who have now been forced to remove the tea ) Producers and songwrites no longer want to give beyonce thier best work cos she steals the credit and forces them to hand over their royalties, as well proving she CAN FLOP.

      Now they are selling basic tracks and saving all the HOT stuff for singers who will not force them to sign over their publishing. LOL LOL it is all coming out now……….

      And another snitched leaked that she is touring and huntin for endorsment deals cos PEPSI are pissed and want their $ 50 mil back, so she needs to find money to recoup before the year ends.

      Then, another snitch ( all this is coming in the last week ) said that HER LP might not come out this year cos SONY hate the music she is submitting.

      HA HA HA HA HA I love it! She gets what she deserves.

      • THE GREAT LACEFRONCE. March 23, 2013

        HMMM I knew there was a reason why the H** hadn’t put out any music(besides FLOP down)& wasn’t capatilizing on the SB performance, documentary, Oprah interview, controversies. I just figured that it was another bad career move on her part since she isnt known for being the smartest. Her career has been in shambles since she began managing herself. Yet another era with MASSIVE promo and FLOP SALES. 🙂

      • POP ROYALTY ( RUDE BOY) March 23, 2013

        POUR IT UP , POUR IT UP 😆

      • truth(icki is a KMART, NO GRAMMY NOD, PFRR FLOP, SQUID EYED b****) March 23, 2013

        What snitch b****…M**?? omg girl u just lie to hear yourself talkn. Show where u got it from. And these b****** stoopid for believn yhis crap. (sits back and watch this goowrl whole BODY catch on fire…not just her pants:

    • Common Sense March 23, 2013

      How can you people defend this uppity b****? She clearly doesn’t give a s*** about any of you. All she sees in the navy is $$$. You sheep are tragic.

  9. Tash March 23, 2013

    OH BUT SHE LOVES AND RESPECTS HER FANS SOOO MUCH! *Rolls eyes* Like I have always said, actions speak louder than words.

    • taeys March 23, 2013

      But they were at school… Told a big star is coming that day! I really don’t think children who are at school would complain about Rihanna coming late! Its RIHANNA! LIKE OMG RIHANNA! Students would be genuinely excited about seeing a famous person up close etc. If any big famous person comes to a school its a really fun thing and exciting to kids period.

      • Common Sense March 23, 2013

        Ignorant fool. They weren’t in school hours when Rihanna arrived. She was supposed to arrive at 1(ONE)pm. She arrived at 5(FIVE)pm. Traffic is no excuse in between those hours. She simply doesn’t give two f**** about her fans.

  10. Beyonce is touring to pay back $50 mil to pepsi after blowing IT! March 23, 2013

    You just posted this cos the tea about beyonce us getting split left, right and centre. Anyway. THE KIDS LOVED IT. SHE WAS LATE, BUT SHE STILL CAME AND THAT IS ALL THE KIDS CARE ABOUT.


    • Common Sense March 23, 2013

      Wrong. Only the dumb sheep loved it. Others (the ones with brains) made signs saying “90% of life is showing up” and openly spoke about how rude it was for her to arrive so late.

      But keep those lips attached to her ass, I’m sure she loves having brain dead followers throwing money at her.

  11. Tash March 23, 2013

    And why do people (the Navy) always need to bring Beyonce into it to distract from Rihanna’s issue? Every post ‘but Beyonce bla bla bla’… Like shut up this aint about her!

    • KING RIH March 23, 2013

      because you trash ass h** was first to comment

      • Tash March 24, 2013

        No you do it anyway b****

  12. Angelique March 23, 2013

    I don’t see how the Navy does it. How in the world can you come on a site that continues to drag your fav? Everytime you click on her post and comment, you’re putting money in Sams’ pocket. Its like the Navy rewards Sam for bashing Rihanna. Maybe if the Navy stopped coming here altogether, that’ll stop Sam from posting so much about her?

    • POP ROYALTY ( RUDE BOY) March 23, 2013

      we love doing charity , and what’s better than givin’ them coins to a N!99a who depend on our hits/rihanna’s tag on posts to live ?

      u understand now ?

    • Common Sense March 23, 2013

      If by “drag” and “bashing” you mean writing the truth and exposing her for who she really is, then, yes why do they continue to come here?

  13. Omari March 23, 2013

    Disrespectful. Clearly taking advantage of the fact they are delusional kids. Rihanna is not the ‘heart on her sleeve’ girl people think she is.

    • Taeys March 23, 2013

      Who thinks that? Rihanna is Rihanna she’s young shady and s***! I wouldn’t like her if she was a ‘heart on her sleeve” type of girl. She’s rich and s*** as s*** and famous the world over… She aint no Britney Spears. Why would anybody assume Rihanna is a bleeding heart? When she drags struggling Ciara on a regular basis. When I think of Rihanna = Regina George (black version). Your just a hater!

  14. Tried It March 23, 2013

    What a b****.

  15. Beyonce is touring to pay back $50 mil to pepsi after blowing IT! March 23, 2013

    The school is not complaining. The kids are not complaining. The navy is not complaining. The only ones who are pressed are the UGLY bitter beyonce fans who are mad there is no single or album.

    Dont get mad us. Get mad at pepsi or Sony.

  16. Carmen (JJ Fan) March 23, 2013

    Now you KNOW if it was Beyonce that did this you Navy would go IN on her lol ijs.

  17. My Forehead Tho March 23, 2013

    Good to see where her priorities are. I bet she wouldn’t have been 5 hours late to Chris Browns court hearing tho.

    • QUEEN MINAJ March 23, 2013

      i almost died after reading this :’)

  18. My Forehead Tho March 23, 2013

    I bet she wouldn’t have been 5 hours late to meet her drug dealer tho

  19. PSA (FAF) March 23, 2013

    B****** she was not five hours late, she was almost three hours late. She uploaded a picture of the traffic yesterday why y’all b****** mad doe???


      Hold up!!!!!!

      I thought you changed your name the ‘@THEPINKPRINT’

  20. Beyonce is touring to pay back $50 mil to pepsi after blowing IT! March 23, 2013

    Back in JAN, I said that this beyonce PEPSI deal was gonna backfire in her face. I WAS RIGHT! Pepsi sponsored the Grammy’s – where was the beyonce pepsi commercial and performance? Pepsi should of gone with JT. BEYONCE completely wasted all the marketing avenue’s that PEPSI LINED UP. She was so scared of rih, that she LET PEPSI DOWN AND NOW THEY WANT THEY MONEY
    B**** better have my money! It was so weird not seeing pepsi at the superbowl commercials – like they are not know for that. And Pepsi VP said that Beyonce era will be her biggest yet? HA HA HA AH She has not even got the guts to drop a single. JT , Pink, Bruno Mars and RIH are the only ones having great ERA IN 2013.
    WHAT A F****** WASTE. LET her do the tour, pay back pepsi, then BOW OUT gracefully, cos we would not want Pepsi interns to spill some TEA. I can imagine who ever broke the deal to get beyonce on board is NOW FIRED, WHAT A SILLY MOVE!

    • ENOUGH ONIKA (KMART QUEEN) March 23, 2013

      …….Anyway, how do you feel about Rihanna throwing dust at her teenage fans??

      • beyonce is touring to pay back $50 mil to pepsi after blowing IT! March 23, 2013

        She did not. She called some of them back and they took pics and posted on Inta’

        TRY HARDER!

    • Common Sense March 23, 2013

      LOL so f****** brain dead. How do mouth breathers like you function outside of your imaginary bubble? Rihanna made these kids wait 5 hours. From 1pm to 5pm. She then arrived and spent all of 15 minutes saying a handful of words and taking pics with a few of them.
      Damn those kids must have felt like they won the f****** lottery according to you. I wouldn’t get out of bed to have some b**** be 5 hours late just to say “GOOD JOB WAITING FOR ME FOR 5 HOURS LIKE IDIOTS BYE LOL!”


    It’s funny how the hive is the first to comment. SMH

    • Little Monster March 23, 2013

      Just like the Navy get in there first a lot of the time with Beyonce Ive noticed. Both as bad as each other smh.

    • cake like lady gaga March 23, 2013

      @slayriah IKR!!! The H** secretly stans for Queen Ri.. B****** better Bow Down!!!!

    • Slayor Swift March 23, 2013

      Exactly I dont see how you can hate someone then be the first to comment

  22. Little Monster March 23, 2013

    15 minutes though? Damn girl you aint all that. I wonder if she performed for them to make up for it? Probably not cos that would’ve made matters worse. She treats her fans like lil pets that lap up everything she puts out. Glad I aint a Navy.

    • Common Sense March 23, 2013

      Of course she made up for it. By giving tickets to the f****** principal of all people LOL! Nothing says sorry like giving concert tickets to someone who doesn’t even know who you are while screwing your real fans for 5 hours.

  23. cake like lady gaga March 23, 2013

    Does FRAUDyonce even know what a high school looks like? Remember, the h** never graduated from high school, much like her H** stans..

    • POP ROYALTY ( RUDE BOY) March 23, 2013


  24. XtinaaLovee March 23, 2013

    She was 3 hours late n she let them know there was traffic calm tf down making something outta nothing…

    • Common Sense March 23, 2013

      Mariah, a real diva, is an hour late at most. Madonna, a legend, is 2 hours late at most (and due to rain). This talentless b**** has no excuse.

  25. the real xoxo March 23, 2013

    I thought she “wasnt a role model or a parent”
    I certainly wouldn’t be cool with my child being visited by her at school

    • taeys March 23, 2013

      She isn’t, But celebrities who aren’t trying to be role models can still give to charity and help communities and do public service etc. She didn’t come there to perform one of her raunchy songs. She added her celebrity to a good cause…

  26. Franzie March 23, 2013

    Booooooooooo! Well you know its OK for the Navi cos they got them low standards anyway.

  27. Slayor Swift March 23, 2013

    Beyonce fans just come rushing to a Rihanna post..

    • ENOUGH ONIKA (KMART QUEEN) March 23, 2013

      and vise versa

    • Chrissy March 23, 2013

      B**** didn’t you and the suckin ship do the same thing on Beyonce’s post…Shut your hypocritical ass up!

  28. cake like lady gaga March 23, 2013

    I haven’t seen that basic african troll @jackieyonce today. Its a Saturday, so I guess the libraries are closed in africa. The troll can’t abuse the welfare internet.. The H** stays losing though!!

    • Rosie March 23, 2013

      Losing like Gags her broken hip?

  29. ENOUGH ONIKA (KMART QUEEN) March 23, 2013

    Mm mm mm…..I think her actions speaks for itself in this case. If you think Rihanna gives two sh*ts about her “navy” unless they filling her pockets and buying her singles on iTunes, especially after this, I guess there’s no hope for the delusional state you’re suffering in….for those not suffering with mental illnesses, this is no surprise…

    • POP ROYALTY ( RUDE BOY) March 23, 2013

      the same can be applied to Bey , the difference is , Rihanna is actually acknowledge them and truly love them , hell , even onigga lover her fans and acknowledge them , but beyonce ?

      Bey won’t even meet and greet her stans who paid to see her after her concerts even though her tickets are more expensive than rihanna’s ?!!

      Lol , she doesn’t want anything to associate her with her stans.

      • cake like lady gaga March 23, 2013

        @Pop gurl u busy spilling tea here…

        But yes you are right. I have NEVER heard FRAUDyonce refer to the B*****.. She didn’t name them that. She want NOTHING to do with these lonely f******.

      • ENOUGH ONIKA (KMART QUEEN) March 23, 2013

        So because you feel Beyonce doesn’t care for her fans Rihanna gets a pass for this….why do you bring up Beyonce anytime (aka every time) Rihanna has a bad performance and/or in the tabloids for her bullish*t?? Stay on the topic of discussion. Just like your fav, taking responsibility without blaming someone or something else is difficult for you..

    • Common Sense March 23, 2013

      Thank god, people with multiple brain cells still exist on this blog.

      • ENOUGH ONIKA (KMART QUEEN) March 24, 2013

        Yes girl, it’s rare on TGJ…

    Last time Beyonce stepped in a high school was 1994

    • ENOUGH ONIKA (KMART QUEEN) March 23, 2013

      And last time Rihanna did, she showed up 5 hours late, took her PR photos and bounced….that’s caring….

    • Common Sense March 23, 2013

      As opposed to Rihanna’s fat, ugly, delusional, insane, mentally retarded stan base?

  33. Rosie March 23, 2013

    Wow @ the R****** fans in here. Like what is she supposed to teach these kids, that even if you’re an untalented STD ridden hood rat, as long as you’re pretty with 7 pounds of makeup, you’re OK? Trash. And that video of her absolutely STRUGGLING with WFL was hilarious. Go purchase the rows and rows of unsold seats of AIDShanna’s Cubic Zirconia tour and stop bringing up Beyonce. Is her sold out tour really bothering y’all that much?

    • KING RIH March 23, 2013

      why would a greatest hits theatre/arena tour bother me or my fav who is on a stadium tour to promote a number one album that has sold damn near 3 million already?

      when will your fav?

    • Common Sense March 23, 2013

      LOL DEAD at Cubic Zirconia Tour!!!

  34. TeamBreezy March 23, 2013

    Did it ever occur to you that perhaps there were other delays such as sound check (she ACTUALLY sings live) and yes TRAFFIC in chi town is hectic and nothing is close ..

    unbiased my ass

  35. I Will Adorn You March 23, 2013

    Terrible. If this was Beyonce you all would be running your mouths. 3 hours/5hours whatever, if Chris Brown was in hospital for punching a wall I bet her ass would be there immediatly. And no matter how late she was, she only gave them 15 minitues of her time. What a b****. She should have made it up with some accoustic performance like Beyonce did in the hospital that time. But then I guess Ri aint about talent speaking for itself unless its bad.

  36. Luvn_it86 March 23, 2013

    Not a rihanna stan or hater but I will give her a pass b/c barrington high scool is not in chicago its in barrington,IL which is a suburb in the chicagoland area

    Rihanna try to be early next time,anyways this is nice,i remember sometime ago when Nicki Minaj did the same thing visiting a school it,s was apart of her foundation that she sponcers, of helping kids through college,but she was the principal for the day,she was making speeches and stuff..she even gave some kids some money to help them with there college tuition.

  41. Dray March 24, 2013

    I see the Hive and Sam still mad. I would be too considering y’all fav just did a public cry for help and Rih stay stay slaying. Just a snippet for the thirsty since they stay checking for Rih, “At the tender age of 24, she’s listed by Forbes as the fourth most powerful celebrity after Jennifer Lopez, Oprah and Justin Bieber, with a net worth of $53 million and a “social rank” of No. 2 (based on social-media activity), behind only Lady Gaga,” Forbes

    Walks off singing Pout It Up. Where your fav?
