The singer tweeted her apologies to fans in Malmo, Sweden, where she was forced to cancel a performance on Oct. 31. “Sorry Malmo!” she wrote, attaching a photograph of an IV drip inserted into her forearm -- the perfect Halloween accessory.  

Rihanna's rep tells The Hollywood Reporter that only one show has been cancelled, and the singer is expected to resume performances on Nov. 1 in Stockholm. The pop star released her own statement, blaming the flu for her hospital visit.

“I am so sorry to everyone who was coming out to my show in Malmo Sweden. I was so excited to perform for you all,” she wrote. “It would have been a great time… so much better than being sick with the flu, ugh! I’m really disappointed I couldn’t be there.”
