Rihanna got roughed up by a fan in May 2011 as she performed on the streets of New York for the kickoff of the “Today” show’s summer concert series. As the pop star launched into a rendition of “S&M,” a male fan reached out, caught her and yanked her up against a metal barricade. Rihanna pulled herself free and security pounced on the fan, and the show went on. —Jeff Royer
