Rihanna is apparently anti-Pokemon after demanding her fans stay in the moment during her concert on Saturday night.
The Sledgehammer sheet music star brought her Anti World Tour to Lille, France, where she encouraged the thousands inside audience to really enjoy the experience with the live gig rather than watching her show through the screens with their mobile devices.
During her concert, she gave an address about being in the instant, and called out any people that use popular Pokemon Go app, an augmented reality game where users ‘catch’ the digital creatures.
In videos posted on Twitter, Rihanna is noted telling her fans, “I shouldn’t see you texting your boyfriends or maybe your girlfriends. I do not want to see you catching any Pokemons up in this particular b**ch.”
The R&B star is not the only celebrity to criticise the app, and the type of who notice the same way is Zachary Quinto, who discussed the action while promoting Star Trek Beyond, a motion picture which features a brand new theme song called Sledgehammer by Rihanna.
Speaking of Pokemon mania, Zachary told Entertainment Tonight: “I think it’s good that people are engaging with each other, but I seem like the ultimate goal for people is to be able to perform that without they in our hands.
“And I realise that technology has evolved plus there is a lot of good that comes from that, and I do not have judgement in people who are involved with it, but I sense that, how should we facilitate the conversation about connecting without the unit between us?”
