Rihanna Four Hours Late For High School Event, Blames Traffic

We know Rihanna love the kids, but some of them may be a little agitated at her. According to reports, the R&B/Pop superstar was FOUR hours late for a high school event, which left a gymnasium of 2,500 kids waiting impatiently.

The event was held at Chicago's Barrington High School after the school won Rihanna's charity competition, which also included an appearance from the "Pour It Up" singer. According to The Chicago Tribune, Rihanna arrived after 5:00 PM to the event that started at 1:00 PM.

On her way to the gig she tweeted, "This Chicago traffic is not working." She reportedly stayed at the event for 15 minutes and thanked the kids, insisting "Thank you guys for coming and waiting." No other explanation was provided.
