Fans throw food at Rihanna during gig

19 July 2013, 09:43

Los Angeles - Rihanna was pelted with food at a UK concert this week.

The singer was forced to stop her performance at the M.E.N Arena in Manchester on Tuesday when fans began hurling crisps at her on stage in protest of her arriving an hour late.

The 25-year-old star looked furious and interrupted a rendition of Rude Boy to give the crowd a piece of her mind.

She ranted: "This is next level, there is a good crazy and there is a bad crazy, but when you throw shit up here, that's an epic fail. I swear to God, cut that shit out. Really? Chips? Chips, though - it's that important?"

Temper has got her in trouble

Despite animosity from some of the concertgoers, the Bajan beauty was quick to put the incident behind her.

She shouted: "OK Manchester, for those of you who want to [get] jiggy and have a good fucking time, say my name!"

Her foul-mouthed rant - which was caught on camera - comes after weeks of the singer turning up late to her concerts and fans complaining of lacklustre performances during the European leg of her Diamonds world tour.

The star's temper has got her in trouble in the past, notably when she knocked a female concertgoer over the head with a microphone in June because she got too close.
