You would think that if you’re in the presence of Queen Bey and Bad Gal RiRi, Pokémon Go would be the last thing on your mind.
Nope! This trend has officially taken over and the star power of Rihanna nor Beyoncé is strong enough to keep the virtual reality game at bay…or so we thought.
On the European leg of the Formation World Tour, a member of the Beyhive is seen scolding a premium seat concert attendee for catching Pokémon instead of focusing on the live vocals of the LEMONADE international superstar. (Be cautious, language is NSFW):
Rihanna must have caught wind of the blasphemy and made it crystal clear that she wants your undivided attention during the Anti World Tour:
Rihanna warned fans at her concert in France to not to catch Pokemon or text during her show.https://t.co/oLQZc8N7be
