Singer Rihanna leaves the Bud Hotel in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on July 11, 2014

*Rihanna briefly jumped into the current Middle East conflict by tweeting, “#FreePalestine,” reports TMZ.

NBA star Dwight Howard was denounced by a pro-Israeli group after he tweeted the same thing three days ago. He eventually deleted the hashtag, and Rihanna removed hers 8 minutes after she posted it, shortly after the proposed Middle East cease fire fell apart.

It’s unclear why Rihanna had the change of heart.

Howard later apologized for getting involved in international politics.
