Eminem and Rihanna Wrap Up Monster Tour with ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

Saturday night, Eminem and Rihanna wrapped up their Monster tour by doing the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge in front of a live audience of 45,000 fans! Talk about a grand finale! They were walking offstage after their final show at Detroit’s Comerica Park when Denaun Porter, Eminem’s hype man, reminded the rapper of his nomination by his friend and mentor Dr. Dre to raise awareness for ALS. Rihanna did the honors, and in turn was nominated herself after Eminem finished the task. At first the singer was reluctant to doing the challenge, saying Detroit, what you think? Should I do it? I’m from the islands; I don’t do this ice sh-t! This ice sh-t doesn’t work for me. However, after the audience cheered and encouraged her to do it, she complied. Eminem and Rihanna are the latest celebs to do the ice bucket challenge. As fun as it is to watch and do, the viral video challenge is in fact raising awareness for the disease, with donations going up to $42 million thus far. Stars ranging from Kendrick Lamar to Ellen Degeneres, Selena Gomez, Oprah Winfrey, Behati Prinsloo and Justin Timberlake are just some of the celebs that have taken the challenge.
