Rihanna pulled a Justin Bieber this week, showing up more than an hour late for her own concert.

Rih reportedly arrived 80 minutes after she was scheduled to appear in Australia, prompting fans to boo her when she finally did hit the stage.

The 25-year-old singer acknowledged her tardiness, reportedly telling the crowd, "I’m finally here. It takes me forever to get back to Australia every time... I now remember how crazy my Australian fans are."

The reaction did not seem to bother Rihanna, who thanked the fans on Twitter, and hyped her next performance.

Rihanna is currently on the last stretch of her Diamonds World Tour, hitting cities in New Zealand, South Africa, and Puerto Rico, before wrapping in New Orleans on Nov. 15.
