Rihanna attends Black Girls Rock! 2016 at New Jersey Performing Arts Center on April 1, 2016 in Newark, N.J. Jersey. 

It's annoying enough when the person in front of you is holding up their phone and recording the whole concert. But what if they're right up front playing freakin' Pokémon Go? It doesn't fly, especially for Rihanna. In a video first posted by Pitchfork, Rih Rih makes it very clear that people at her shows should be paying attention to her and not searching for a Tauros.

"I don't want to see you texting your boyfriends or girlfriends," she said in a video from her gig in Lille, France on Saturday night. "I don't want to see you catching any Pokémons up in this bitch." 



The scene was pretty similar at a Beyoncé show at Stade de France in Paris last week, when a fan lashed out at a woman who was Poke-hunting in the front row while Bey was doing her thing. Bottom line: it's a Poké-no at shows.
