Rihanna’s health concerns force the cancellation of an annual music festival… details in your Daily Scoop.

Rihanna has pulled out of her appearance as a headliner at the 2016 Lollapalooza Colombia Festival due to concerns over the Zika virus.  The entire festival, which was set to take place in September, has been canceled as the organizers have not been able to find a sufficient replacement.  A statement on the events website says, “The organizers wish to express their deep appreciation to all the fans who supported the festival since day one, as well as the sponsors and the media partners.”

Emily Blunt and John Krasinski have welcomed their second child.  John took to twitter to make the announcement saying “What better way to celebrate the 4th… than to announce our 4th family member!!! 2 weeks ago we met our beautiful daughter Violet #Happy4th”

The signature ruffled shirt and black-and-white blazer worn by late rock star Prince in the film ‘Purple Rain’ have been sold at auction for US$96,000 each to unnamed buyers.  The items were part of a showcase in the recent ‘Profiles in History’ auction that took place from June 29 to July 1, which organizers say was in the works before Prince died in April.
