By TONY DANSTEIN | 05.07.2014 | 12:25 ISTA few years ago, Rihanna was a pretty well-known superstar in India.
She had her own fashion line, the popular ROH label.
Her father, the late B.B. King, had been a big influence on her early life.
The brand was hugely popular, and she was seen as the “Queen of Indian Fashion”.
But, like so many famous Indian stars before her, she began to feel a little disaffected.
She was still on the road, making music and appearing in movies.
She became pregnant, but was unable to deliver the baby, due to complications.
In November 2013, her fans started to show up in droves, protesting outside the venue where she was due to perform, demanding she go back to the drawing board.
This, it turned out, was no mere protest.
It was the culmination of a decade of intense lobbying by the pop star.
It was not just the public who were feeling their pain.
For a time, even her critics had doubts about her decision to quit ROH, and the fact that she was pregnant.
This was a very unusual situation for a female artist.
The public outcry, however, was nothing compared to what happened when Rihanna performed at the Golden Gate Park on 20 December 2013.
In the course of the evening, she had her first public performance in more than 20 years.
The event drew over 12,000 fans, and was the biggest in the history of the park.
The crowd booed loudly, with some even chanting “she is pregnant” and “she was born on the wrong day”.
“I thought, ‘she has been born on an incorrect day’,” said Rishi Kulkarni, a resident of the district who was among the thousands who gathered to watch the event.
“But it was such a beautiful sight that I couldn’t stop thinking about it, so I continued to watch.”
After the performance, Kulkarns mother, B.K. Rani, took to social media to tell the world about Rihanna’s new-found fame.
She was also keen to tell her son that he was not the only one who had felt a sense of loss.
“The public was so hurt that they couldn’t come out to the park,” Rani told The Times.
“She has been a celebrity for so many years.
There are so many people who had a hard time understanding that, and there were so many who were happy for her.”
She continued: “She made me feel that she’s a big star and she has so much support.
I feel like she’s made me a big part of her family.”
A few weeks later, Rani was able to take a look back at some of the photos that had been taken that day and found them to be incredibly emotional.
The images were taken in the same place, just a few days before Rihanna delivered her baby.
The photographs were taken at a time when many of the celebrities were also experiencing a major crisis.
In early October 2013, Rohan Shah was forced to cancel the opening ceremony of his concert in Hyderabad because of the death of his wife, who was diagnosed with cancer.
Shah was also forced to leave the country due to a viral illness.
A year later, the popstar’s father, Bishnoi, was forced out of the country over allegations of corruption.
This also impacted the lives of many of his children, including Rihanna.
Rihanna’s fans and fans of other celebrities who had been critical of her were not happy with the public outcry.
They also wanted to know why the singer had chosen to leave ROH.
“Rihana is the greatest artist of the 21st century, and her fans are the most loyal,” Rishi said.
“People should know that the world is so divided, and it is because of her that we are so proud of her.”
When asked why Rihanna chose to not give birth, Krikarni said: “People have always been asking her why she left ROH.”
The question was then put to her: why were the public so angry?
“Rohanna chose not to give birth,” Rania Kulkarki, an actress and one of Rihannas most ardent fans, told The Associated Press in a recent interview.
“It’s because she’s proud.
She feels that she is the best.
I think she felt that the public was not happy about her leaving.”
The reaction from the public to Rihanna leaving ROH was mixed.
Some were supportive, while others, like Kulkarna, were very critical.
Some were outraged by her decision, while some were disappointed.
But even among those who were most upset, there was some agreement.
Ri had always been a very vocal and outspoken critic of the way the world sees her and her brand, and this time, her
