Over the weekend, some woman who probably spent a crapload of money to stand in the pit next to the stage at a Beyoncé concert spent her time there catching Pokémon, instantly becoming the mortal enemy of the Hive and, if she’s ever identified, the possessor of social mentions resembling a war zone.
Rihanna, a woman who sees every single one of your tricks, made explicit her intent not to put up with any of them at her Anti World Tour stop Saturday evening in Lille, France, as first reported by (of course) Shady Music Facts:
“I don’t wanna see you texting your boyfriends or your girlfriends,” she said. “I don’t wanna see you catching any Pokémons up in this bitch.”
Rihanna’s been delightfully off the cuff on her Anti tour stops as far as banter goes—as opposed to most pop-star tours which have fairly rigid scripts that nearly always make sure to thank the fans and mom and Jesus—so this is no surprise. (And besides, it’s a terrific tour—if you’re playing video games that’s you’re own damn fault.) But it’s also telling how stealthily the evil Pokémon Go has infiltrated the globe, that anyone at a concert is just as likely to be catching these little shits—sidebar: WHAT is your DATA PLAN?—as FaceTiming their boo. Pathetic!
