    Rihanna goes cheeky in this image saying: "Here's my party spot!!"

A fan uploaded a YouTube video that shows Rihanna hitting another fan with her dazzling golden mic. The video went viral with 39,134 views in less than 24 hours and many re-uploads. The footage shows RiRi singing to her fans off stage, initially ignoring the many hands that reach out to her till she suddenly stops mid-way, turns around and hits a fan in the audience.

However, it seemed unclear as to what the provocation for Rihanna's reaction may have been and how badly hurt the fan was. The unperturbed RiRi nonchalantly resumed her singing and walked on anyway.

The 25-year-old singer was in Birmingham for her Diamonds World Tour with the alleged incident happened, reports Daily Mail.



Fan reaction
Fans seem divided in their opinion over the incident. @iamlouisc tweeted, "Dear Rihanna, if you really care about your fans, you will never hit a fan with a microphone on head :/" and @iremsubasii responded to the video with, "Rihanna hit a fan but she deserved it. Everybody knows it's a concert and you're here for fun but she tried to pull her in. I'd do the same."

Most fans seem amused over the incident but larger questions loom. Are celebs too secure about their space? Should such an incident be taken as a joke?
Or do fans often cross their boundaries?
