Rihanna, she of cold-blooded “B—- Better Have My Money” fame, shed tears during her performance in Dublin last night (June 21). It had fans concerned because, according to Ireland’s RTE, Rihanna was not only 30 minutes late for her show but her tears started during only the second song of the night.

When Rihanna began singing “Love the Way You Lie,” her 2010 hit with Eminem, she became visibly moved and had to stop singing to wipe away tears. In the first of two 30-second videos a fan captured, Rihanna’s voice quavers as she begins singing the song. The crowd’s voices almost overwhelm hers, singing along with every word. She dips her head, backs away from the microphone and returns with tears brimming in her eyes.

Rihanna never fully addressed what had brought on the emotional outpouring, but she did tell the gathered crowd, “I only have ever in my life heard an audience of people scream so loud that they sound like one voice and that only happens in Ireland, in Dublin. Thank you so much.”
