The Pokémon GO craze is in full swing and while many celebrities like Christian Slater and Wiz Khalifa are embracing it, some aren't so enthusiastic about the newly emerged need to catch 'em all. Rihanna is one of those famous individuals who may have grown up watching Pokémon but still aren't crazy about the fact that pocket monsters are now a bigger hit than their respective selves. "I don't want to see you texting your boyfriends or your girlfriends, I don't want to see you catching any Pokémons up in this b***h," said the singer on stage during her recent venue in Lille, France. Apparently, despite the fact that they've paid over a hundred dollars for the concert ticket, some Rihanna fans were still more excited about catching Pokémon than they were about hearing and seeing their favorite singer perform on stage.
Rihanna isn't the only musician whose spotlight was recently stolen by Pokémon. A recent video which appeared on Instagram shows a certain Pokémon trainer catching pocket monsters in the close proximity of Beyonce who was performing on the stage of Stade de France in Paris last Thursday. The author of the video wasn't exactly pleased with the scene, stating that "this b***h is finding Pokémon; she's finding Pokémon when Beyoncé's singing! F—ing Pokémon! Look at where she is. Look at where she is! She's next to the stage!"
While certain performers and their fans may not be too thrilled with the fact some people are trying to catch 'em all while attending concerts, there certainly are far more inappropriate places for people to try to be the very best like no one ever was. For instance, ever since Pokémon GO launched, numerous cases of trespassing were recorded all over the world, some players have recently stumbled upon a dead body in the States, and an Iowa Hawkeyes' defensive lineman has recently been surrounded by the police while playing the game because he was "acting suspiciously" and matching the description of a bank robber who has just hit a bank in the neighborhood. Given how the game will soon receive some large updates and is yet to roll out in South America, Africa, some parts of Europe, and most of Asia, it seems like we'll continue to hear about Pokémon-related incidents for quite some time. Then again, no one's said the path to becoming a Pokémon master is an easy one.
