The American Airlines Center had to be evacuated, which didn't sit well with fans since RiRi was reportedly an hour late going on. Adding to the disappointment, Rihanna's 2010 concert in Dallas was canceled as well, for unspecified reasons. 

Rihanna tweeted about the incident afterward, vowing to return to Dallas in the future.

She does sound uneducated and sure she speaks just as ill. It wouldn't hurt Rihanna to learn how to speak and write.

Havin' and wit' are one thing but fyah? Why don't you just find a way to kill kids brain cells with a raygun or something. Somebody needs to remake Revenge of the Nerds. This era of dumb being cool has got to end. America's downfall isn't gonna be the economy or pollution or gay marriage. It's gonna be stupidity.

"Fyah" is patois (Jamaican Dialect) for fire, just thought I would put that out there. I agree with debschira, when she started out I remember reading an article where she stated that she would never pose or appear fully or half nude; guess that Rihanna disappeared as the dollars came rolling in.

Bottom line is someone needs to refund the ticket holders. First, Cee Lo does not show and is replaced with an inferior artist. Second, Rihanna was an hour plus late. Third, the show was cut in half thanks to a fire that could have been quickly handled (no fire extinguisher was close to the pyrotechnics). Fourth and finally, the facility and event staff had no idea what was going on as some ushers were telling people to stay and others saying get out. As for the language and Twittering, its sad, especially given what she makes and that she probably hires someone to send that out that garbage for her. Live Nation, AAC, and Rihanna should be embarrassed with the whole event/night.

I was a huge rihanna fan! Bought everything rihanna! I went to the Dallas concert. I don't understand y there's isn't more outrage because we r not getting a partial refund, another concert or even a sorry from her! I am so sad to hear that the concert I have been waiting for is just OVER..that's it.. I paid $230 for a half ass concert. I mean the first half was awesome, perfect even, but I expected her to make it right at the end of the day..n..it's not right!
