Singer Rihanna is having a bad time in Australia after being booed by fans at the Adelaide Entertainment Center for showing up 80 minutes late for her concert on Thursday.

The Herald Sun reported that she also was 40 minutes late for a concert in Perth on Tuesday, on top Thursday's late appearance.


"DISGUSTING...my14 year old paid $140 for a waste of time ticket," Tracey Scholl wrote on The Advertiser's Facebook page about the concert. "She was so disappointed, Rihanna is meant to be a professional, I'm sure if she was in another line of work getting paid $140 for an hour and a half, and she rocked up that late, she would be looked down upon...Never again."

Once at the concert, Rihanna under-whelmed fans and reviewers alike, with some claiming she was drunk on stage, according to Tobias Hadke of NovaFM.com.

"When she finally arrived, it was obvious Rihanna had been enjoying a few sherbets backstage," Handke wrote. "If her glassy eyes didn’t arouse suspicions, then her constant crotch grabbing and lack of actual singing would have given the game away. Not that Rihanna didn’t give her vocal chords a good workout, but throughout the concert, particularly during the first half, she relied on a backing track and the harmonious support of her backup singers, while she concentrated on her dance moves."

RadarOnline.com noted that constant reports of partying have hampered many dates on Rihanna's Diamond World Tour. The celebrity website pointed to numerous reports about the singer being late for dates in Cologne, Germany; Sunderland, U.K.; and Antwerp, Belgium.
