Rihanna Performs at the Essence Music Festival

July 6th, 2008 // 5 Comments

The “Umbrella” singer hit up the Essence Music Festival in New Orleans, along with her boo, Chris Brown. The couple celebrated the recent holiday on stage, performing on July 4 at the Louisiana Superdome.

Recently, the singer faced a run-in with two groups of individuals obsessed with catching a glimpse of her. She had just finished a photo shoot at Highbar in NYC and was preparing to leave, but found that both of her exit options were blockaded. One was full of paparazzi, and the other with screaming fans. When faced with her choices, she opted to push her way through the paps.

You just know that for at least a brief moment, she hated how much her fans loved her…boy.
