R&B singer Rihanna has insisted that all umbrellas be confiscated from fans, in case they injure themselves trying to copy the dance routine to her hit song âUmbrella.â Andy McDonald, a security guard at the Aberdeen Exhibition Centre, where Rihanna performed on Monday Feb. 3, said: “We were taking precautions over a potential accident. We were told Rihanna’s song features dancing with umbrellas on stage. We didn’t want the crowd following her actions and someone getting their eye poked out.” The decision follows reports of several injuries caused by umbrella-related incidents during Rihanna’s recent European dates. One fan due to attend one of the singer’s upcoming shows said: “I was really looking forward to whipping out my umbrella during the song. I have been practicing the routine for weeks but it has all been for nothing.” Rihanna will perform at the Liverpool Echo Arena tonight Today Feb. 5 before moving on to Bournemouth’s Windsor Hall tomorrow Feb. 6. Her final UK date will be at London’s O2 arena on Friday Feb. 7.
