"Rihanna just don’t give a f**k."

Social media users have expressed their dismay at Rihanna’s performance at Anant Ambani and Radhika Merchant’s pre-wedding.

The extravagant three-day affair has been a star-studded one.

As the event prepares to reach its end, one of the biggest moments was Rihanna’s performance.

Reportedly, she was paid over £5 million for a 90-minute performance.

But as footage of her performance became widely available online, social media users accused Rihanna of not putting in much effort.

In one clip that had been viewed more than 2.5 million times, one said:

“Rihanna just don’t give a f**k.”

Another wrote: “People acting like Rihanna hasn’t always performed like this… I LOVE Rihanna but I always tell people her concerts have been some of the most boring I’ve been to.”

One person joked: “Never has [cared] lol, that check must have cleared before the performance. She said at least I showed tf up.”

One netizen claimed that since becoming a mother, Rihanna has lost interest in being a performer, writing:

“She pretty much has lost any interest in being a performer. Which is good for her because she’s now a mother but bad for us.”

A clip of the performance also made its way to Reddit, where fans were not much kinder.

One said: “Me and my cousins when we were 12 putting on a ‘talent show’ in the living room for the fam went harder.”

A user commented:

“Should’ve flown Tom Holland in and do his umbrella routine. 1.000.000x more energy.”

Claiming she is average, one said:

“I used to think that Rihanna just didn’t care about her performances but then I realised she’s just bad at it and she has a big enough ego while being insulated by yes people that she doesn’t see that she’s below average in this area.”

One criticised: “Ri is the laziest performer ever! Even Taylor Swift brings more energy.”

Some defended the music superstar, pointing to the rumour that she and her rapper boyfriend A$AP Rocky are expecting their third child.

Meanwhile, Rihanna paid tribute to the soon-to-be-married couple, saying:

“I’m here tonight in honour of Anant and Radhika. Thank you for having me here.

“God bless your union. I wish you all the best. Congratulations.”

After her performance, Rihanna prepared to leave India.

At the airport, she teased a return to India, saying:

“I’ll be back.”
