Rihanna's Diamonds World Tour is off to a rough start: the singer is still dealing with the flu and laryngitis and has canceled her show tonight in Baltimore. A statement from Live Nation, reported by the Associated Press, said Rihanna is "still recovering" and suggested fans hold onto their tickets "pending rescheduling show date information."

Rihanna: Crazy in Love

Rihanna kicked off her Diamonds World Tour last Friday in Buffalo, New York, but canceled her show on Sunday in Boston after falling ill. "#BOSTON this is the hardest thing for me to deal with! I feel like we've been waiting on this day forever, and I'm hurt that I let you down," she tweeted at the time. "I hate disappointing people that never ever let me down!! I'm so embarrassed about this! Thank you for your prayers and well wishes!"

“Madame George”

Van Morrison | 1968

One of the first stream-of-consciousness epics to make it onto a Van Morrison record, his drawn-out farewell to the eccentric "Madame George" lasted nearly 10 minutes, combining ingredients from folk, jazz and classical music. The character that gave the song its title provoked speculation that it was about a drag queen, though Morrison denied this in Rolling Stone. "If you see it as a male or a female or whatever, it's your trip," he remarked. "I see it as a ... a Swiss cheese sandwich. Something like that."
