You would think that concertgoers paying to see some of the world biggest divas would want to soak up that opportunity, but it would seem that these fans spent their money before their lives were changed forever by Pokémon Go. Billboard found a video from an enraged ticket-holder who saw somebody in the front row of a Beyoncé show playing the game and not bowing at the feet of Queen Bey (see below), and Rihanna put The Go firmly on The No List. In a video posted by Pitchfork, the singer gives the instructions to her audience, “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 bitch.” You tell them, Rhianna. After all, if you want to catch 'em all in the presence of a pop star, you should just go to Central Park with Justin Bieber.
