Apparently umbrellas-ellas-ellas can be quite dangerous in the hands on Rihanna fans! After a several number of incidents including injuries, they decided to ban umbrellas on her UK tour. So now you can't bring them, but you can still buy on your way out!
Andy McDonald, a security guard at the Aberdeen Exhibition Centre, where Rihanna performed on Monday, said: "We were taking precautions over a potential accident. We were told Rihanna's song features dancing with umbrellas on stage. We didn't want the crowd following her actions and someone getting their eye poked out."

One fan due to attend one of the singer's upcoming shows said: "I was really looking forward to whipping out my umbrella during the song. I have been practicing the routine for weeks but it has all been for nothing." [SOURCE]
