The charts aren’t the only thing lighting up around Rihanna. The buildings she’s sleeping in are too.
The “We Found Love” hitmaker fled from a smoking hotel in London on Wednesday morning along with the rest of the guests. A motor in the hotel’s service elevator burnt out causing a smoke leak.
According to CapitalFM, the incident was not serious and people were evacuated as a safety precaution.
“At approximately 6:30 a.m., one of the service elevator motors at Corinthia Hotel London burnt out," a rep for the hotel told the source. “There was a slight discharge of smoke and because of our robust fire management policy, the alarms were activated and a full evacuation of the building was carried out.”
Rihanna took to Instagram, sharing a series of pics with followers, to paint a picture of the incident.
In the first image, a fire truck was parked in front of the hotel lobby. Along with the image the singer joked, “Fire in the Telly #evacuationlife.”
Nothing like waking up to the smell of smoke and burning plastic instead of coffee and waffles…
Still, RiRi seemed to remain chipper about the turn of events. She tweeted a picture of her waiting patiently – though, looking somewhat annoyed – in her car as the fire department peeps took care of business.
“Roamin da streets since 6am! Fyah in da telly,” she said.
Isn't Rihanna normally still partying at that time anyway?
The hotel’s rep went on that the responding fire brigade administered a full safety check. All hotel guests were accounted for and were allowed back inside just after 7:00 a.m.
The last fire that started on Rihanna’s behalf was the recent Drake-Chris Brown inferno, which erupted in NYC club W.i.P.
Drake and Brown’s scuff caused the club’s liquor license to be suspended, threatened Tony Parker’s ability to appear at the London games, and spawned an idea for a celebrity-boxing match[http://www.hollyscoop.com/chris-brown/drake-and-chris-brown-offered-mill....
That’s one fire that won’t be going out anytime soon.
