No wonder Barbados Teen Sensation Rihanna has broken ankle ? she tripped over her sponsorships?

In the US, Rihanna does stuff for at&t (ex-Cingular) and has a contract with the LG chocolate mobile… Here in Barbados she does stuff for bMobile – but she sang recently in Texas at the Nokia Theatre?

Poor thing she must have tripped in all of that telecoms confusion and THAT’s how she must’ve broken her ankle, right?

She was in the Lone Star state to do a special concert for Kiss 106.1 FM with Good Charlotte and Avril Lavigne… Young Ms Fenty is a great trouper nevertheless, she sat and sang as the reviewer realises the Bajan teenager wanted to do more –

…plucky Rihanna, recently hobbled by a broken ankle, who nevertheless soldiered onstage on crutches and ran through such hits as Unfaithful, Shut Up and Drive and, of course, Umbrella.

She clearly yearned to prance about the stage, but she was confined to a stool for most of her time in the spotlight. Good Charlotte (complete with Nicole Richie‘s beau, Joel Madden) followed the Barbados native, doling out a solid 30-minute set packed with the staples (Boys and Girls, Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous) and a surprising number of songs from their new album, Good Morning Revival.
