*A series of Instagram photos posted by Rihanna have wafted into the headlines.
On Tuesday, the day before Rihanna’s birthday, she posted pics of her blunt-filled Hawaiian getaway.
“#whobad @badgalriri #smokeitupsmokeitup,” her assistant and best friend Melissa Forde wrote as the caption for one pic of Rihanna from behind in a cloud of smoke. In another photo of the birthday girl exhaling, Forde wrote, “B*tch I got that flame.”
Rihanna also continued her Chris Brown high during the Hawaiian birthday holiday.
Also on Tuesday, Rihanna posted a behind-the-scenes video from the debut of her critically-panned launch for her clothing line River Island during London Fashion Week. In it, Rihanna can be seen going over last-minute details on the pieces, as well as the models’ hair and makeup.
“Part in the middle, straight … blunt,” she tells an assistant after inspecting one model’s hair.
In another scene, she and the models pose together for photos before the big show last Saturday. And later, as each girl struts down the runway in her creations, Rihanna is seen dancing backstage while watching on a monitor. “That’s so sexy,” she yells over her own blaring music.
Although her first fashion line was mostly panned by critics – The Daily Beast called it “a horror show. The clothes were hideous and without an ounce of panache or style between them.” – Rihanna didn’t seem to mind. On Tuesday, she posted a screengrab of Vogue’s website on Instagram with the caption, “Anna Wintour thank you for covering my show!!!”
