"Based on Rihanna's examination, after Grammy rehearsal today, Rihanna's doctor put her on vocal rest for 48 hours because she was at risk of hemorrhaging her vocal chords," a statement from the singer read. "The antibiotics she has been on for three days did not kill the infection adequately, therefore she cannot perform safely."
