#Rihanna accused of lip-synching while being "high" on stage in #Singapore

Er, hello...? Where am I again?
If you're going to large it up backstage, Rihanna, make sure you do it after you've finished your performance, eh?

Because the singer has been accused of not only lip-synching at a recent performance in Singapore, but also of being intoxicated on either alcohol or drugs.

Fans that were at the concert after the F1 Grand Prix slammed RiRi for a "disappointing" show, blasted her for being "high on weed" and one eagle-eyed man even spotted that her microphone wasn't even on.

Steve Lai, newsreader for Channel NewsAsia, took to his Twitter page and wrote: "SPOILER ALERT: Rihanna is lip-synching. From the ex-soundman next to me. Plus red light isn't on on her mike. She walks like Rihanna though."

R&B superstar Rihanna gave a magnificent show, which went on for over an hour, at the Padang to a massive crowd of 65,000 people soon after the F1 race winner Sebastian Vettel won on Sunday night.
He added: "Am sure Rihanna just forgot the words and mouthed "sorry". At least she's singing. Dipping in and out of a backing track at least."

But while Steve made jokes about the star's show, most fans weren't as forgiving and one, Dan Ogunshakin wrote: "Rihanna has been utter garbage. She looks off her chops... miming and miming badly."

Another wrote: "@Rihanna Yo mullet! Singapore is too classy for your s**t. Go lip-sync somewhere else!"

One even joked that she'd done the right thing and tweeted: "LOL @ people complaining about Rihanna lip-synching during her concert... she's doing you a favour!"

RIhanna's slating comes off the back of a controversial week for the star who got into trouble in Thailand after she posted a selfie of her and a slow loris, a protected primate, before live tweeting from an X-rated sex show.

And it's not the first time the 25-year-old has been accused of miming on stage.

Last summer, after she played the T In The Park festival in Scotland, organisers were forced to defend her after it was revealed she relied on a backing track during her performance.

However - one person who didn't seem to notice her alleged lip-synching in Singapore was Justin Bieber who was there in the crowd and tweeted: "Watched my girl Rihanna kill it last night in Singapore."

Maybe he'd been partying backstage with her? Allegedly...
