According to rumors, Rihanna is supposedly shocked by Chris Brown’s public video apology after he beat her to the point of needing hospitalization in February. Sources say that Rihanna wasn’t too happy about him addressing it so publicly.

An insider reportedly tells Now magazine,

“She’s in total shock. It was like he gave her another blow, albeit one of a different kind. All she knows is that it’s in the news again and that’s the one thing she didn’t want. She’s been trying to put it behind her and move on as fast as possible.”

The source continues,

“They spoke earlier last week and Chris made no mention of any public statement then. She wishes he’d given her at least a heads-up about it. But that’s Chris, always thinking of himself first and forgetting how this would impact on her.”

Furthermore, the insider says,

“In the video he says he’s apologized to Rihanna privately many times and that’s true. So we’re questioning what this video is really for. It’s clearly something he’s done for his public image. It’s convenient that he’s waited until his new album’s coming out.”

R&B star Rihanna stunned party-goers in New York on Saturday night (25July) with a surprise performance – taking to the stage at a karaoke bar.

The Umbrella hitmaker was enjoying an evening out with friends at Manhattan’s Shanghai Square when they decided to hit the venue’s ‘Karaoke Cave’.
And the crowd was delighted when the star took the mic and spent several hours belting out her favorite tunes.

An onlooker tells RadarOnline.com,

“She came with about six friends and joined about eight more friends who were already there. She didn’t want to be in a private room – she was in the main lounge with everyone else.”

“Rihanna sang along for about 10 songs. She requested Misery Business by Paramore and Bust Your Windows by Jazmine Sullivan. She also sang along with friends to Livin on a Prayer by Bon Jovi and Before He Cheats by Carrie Underwood. Anytime anyone wanted to request a Rihanna song she said no!”

“There are three mics in the lounge and Rihanna was holding one of them and singing with everyone during the songs. She was very gracious to everyone.”
