Rihanna: No Pokemon Go at her concerts
'I don't want to see you catching any Pokémons up in this b----!' she told a crowd
Pokémon Go may have taken over your neighborhood, but Rihanna doesn’t want the game to interfere with her Anti world tour.
During Saturday’s show in Lille, France, Rih told the crowd not to catch Pokémon during her shows. “I don’t want to see you texting your boyfriends or your girlfriends,” she said on stage. “I don’t want to see you catching any Pokémons up in this bitch!”
Pokémon is a huge brand, so we always knew it would be really well received, but I don’t think we expected the type of reaction that we saw. It’s unreal, the excitement,” the game’s product marketing manager Archit Bhargava told EW in a recent interview.
