Rihanna took to Instagram on Thursday night to announce that she would not be performing. “Our thoughts are with the victims and their families,” Rihanna wrote. Although Rihanna was in Nice at the time of the attack, her representative confirmed that the singer was indeed “safe.”
The singer was scheduled to perform on Saturday, July 16 at The Nice Jazz Festival, which has also been cancelled following the incident.
