We all know RIHANNA isn’t one to turn down a nicely rolled joint or two, as evidenced by photos of her in Hawaii with blunt in hand that surfaced yesterday. But is RIHANNA’s fondness of mary jane a way to unwind, or a desperate cry for help?
There’s clearly a double standard when it comes to celebs and their recreational use of alcohol and weed. Take SNOOP DOGG, LIL WAYNE, WIZ KHALIFA for instance – they all have had run-ins with the law because of their puff puff pass lifestyle. It’s even been widely accepted as part of their image.
So why is it that when a cute Bajan pop singer is caught red handed “chiefing,” she’s ridiculed and suspected of being an addict?
Truth is, there is much reason to suspect RIHANNA is stressed, especially after being put on health watch for overexerting herself. The 23-year old singer cranked up her “good girl gone bad” image about five notches after her widely publicized and violent break-up with ex-boyfriend CHRIS BROWN, and now rumor has RI-Ri might be a little upset about his new love interest KARREUCHE TRAN.
Let’s not be mistaken -Rihanna has had some rebounds of her own. But after brief romances with DRAKE, and baseball player MATT KEMP, and British model Dudley O’Shaughnessy Single Rih Rih seems to be finding comfort with mind altering substances. After all, taking shots of tequila during performances and running off stage to vomit isn’t exactly model behavior.
RIHANNA knows the paparazzi are snapping flicks every times she lights one up, and she’s clearly giving them the show they bargained for.
So the real question becomes, is RIh Rih just having fun or is she using the ganga as a quick fix to get over um, CHRIS? Whatever the case, Rih Rih should spend more time perfecting her craft rather than her rolling skills.
