Rihanna Says That She’s Dating a Lady; Shocker?
Rihanna may know how to belt out a tune, but the songstress is better at making headlines. In today’s example, the singer demonstrated how to stir the gossip pot by dating (and tweeting about) the same sex.
RadarOnline reports that the 24-year-old is now interested in the female of the species (despite recently being linked to her ex Chris Brown and Two and a Half Men star Ashton Kutcher).
Late Thursday night the attention-hungry star tweeted, “I’m on my first date in almost 2 yearz,” before revealing that her special guest for the evening was another female. (Insert cheesy umbrella related joke here.)
So, where did RiRi take her special date? One of her favourite hot spots. The pop star and her lady-friend were spotted holding hands outside of Malibu’s Giorgio Baldi restaurant (the same place the singer had dinner before she was photographed dropping in on Kutcher at midnight last month).
As per usual, Rihanna kept Twitter followers — and media outlets — busy by tweeting updates throughout the evening, implying that she and her date, Melissa Forde, were anything but platonic. The singer wrote, “Beautiful is great, submissive is even better. Bawse b***h who’s submissive yet the captain of the ship n HONEST…#priceless #marryME,” she wrote, adding, “But she bad… So maybe she won’t…. But s**t, then again maybe she will.” (Thanks there, Lil Wayne.)
The party didn’t end there, however. The pair was later spotted at Hollywood hot spot the Roxbury nightclub. She tweeted pictures of her table full of booze and a picture of her and her date captioned, “#datenight my lover for the night.”
Rihanna may not have a problem sharing a little TMI with her followers, but when it comes to the mainstream media, she’s had enough. According to Us Weekly, the songstress battled MTV after the channel’s website tweeted a link to a story about how her “marijuana photos from Coachella sparked controversy.”
Within 12 minutes, RiRi slammed the site saying, “Yikes. . . I ran out of f-cks to give.” MTV deleted the original tweet, but responded back, “Well played.”
This isn’t the first time the singer has battled the media. Late last year she told British Vogue, “People — especially white people — they want me to be a role model just because of the life I lead.
“The things I say in my songs, they expect it of me and [being a role model] became more of my job than I wanted it to be.”
