Rihanna tweeted a photo of herself hooked up to an IV drip during her hospital visit. She didn't give any reasons on Twitter why she was in the hospital, but a source told Entertainment Tonight the singer "had a fever and flu since last week and needed an IV but is fine now."

On the Met Gala red carpet outside the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the "You Da One" singer looked stunning -- and skinnier than ever. She wore a black Tom Ford crocodile embossed dress and showed it off for photographers.

But the chart-topper has been feeling under the weather for several days. Although she performed on Saturday Night Live over the weekend, she had to skip the Friday rehearsal due to fatigue and illness. She pulled through for the live show Saturday night and performed "Talk That Talk."

On Sunday, Rihanna tweeted, "---k bein sick!"

In November of last year, Rihanna had to cancel two shows in Stockholm, Sweden due to fatigue. "She was so ill," a source told Us Weekly of the star. "She could barely stand up. She was pushing herself to do the show, but she couldn't do it in the end."

Rihanna tweeted a similar photo to her fans during that illness of herself hooked up to an IV drip.
