Celebrity news reports that RIHANNA angered the “Saturday Night Live” producers after missing the dress rehearsals, even if she had a pretty valid excuse.

Rihanna bails at the last minute for the dress rehearsals for “Saturday Night Live” last night, pissing off at least one of the producers of the show, Lorne Michaels, who takes live pre-performances seriously.

The “We Found Love” singer’s place was filled in by the choreographer for the final rehearsal, but she showed up later looking like she never got sick, upsetting the staff and the producers even more.

TMZ explains:

“Sources close to Rihanna tell TMZ she went through every rehearsal except the dress rehearsal (which she was in the building for) because she just felt too ill to do it. We’re told RiRi had a doctor come to her dressing room before the show and administer a shot of penicillin before she went on.”

According to the site, the singer’s rep still claims:

Rihanna was sick and needed to save her voice for the live show.”

Pulling a Lindsay Lohan, are we?

Let’s hope they all thought Rihanna‘s performance was stellar enough so they can all (hopefully) forget about the mishap.
