Rihanna Talks Hospitalization: "I Had the Flu and Never Gave Myself Time to Recover"
She heals quickly!
Rihanna — who checked herself into the hospital on Monday night — was back in fighting shape last night at the L.A. premiere of her first movie, Battleship. The singer told an E! reporter her health was nothing to worry about — just a standard case of the flu.
"I'm a lot better, thank you for asking. I just had the flu and I never gave myself the chance to recover," she said. "But I took a couple days, rested. And now I'm here. I always deny myself [rest]."
Earlier this week, news broke that Rihanna had partied so hard after the Met Ball in NYC that she ended up in the ER. She Tweeted pictures of an I.V. in her arm Tuesday and complained of feeling ill over the weekend, leading some to believe all her partying had finally caught up with her.
On a lighter note, we can add another admirer to Rihanna's already very lengthy list: Liam Neeson. According to E! the actor reportedly "fell in love" with her during filming.
"I love Liam Neeson," she cooed. "I don't know if I'm going to be able to focus now that you've said this. This is incredible. This is great news."
