Rihanna's dopey Valentine's messages

2013-02-16 22:00:22


Rihanna has never been shy when it comes to controversy but it seems some of her fans are tiring of her increasingly frequent references to marijuana.

The Bajan superstar was photographed on-stage last year wearing a top with a cannabis leaf design and has tweeted not one but two dope-themed Valentine's messages in the last few days.

The first came on Valentine's Day itself and depicts a hand holding a rolled-up cigarette with the words "Mary Jane will be my Valentine" superimposed over a cloud of smoke. Mary Jane is an old-fashioned euphemism for marijuana. Rihanna then added the message: "Love me...I'm #DOPE".

The second, tweeted on February 15, shows a large marijuana plant grown in the shape of a leaf and was accompanied by the words, "Roses are green! Somebody knows how to make me happy".

While many of the 24 year-old's fans seem unperturbed by her repeated drug references, some expressed their disapproval on Twitter. One said simply, "Don't do it riri<3:;", while another, presumably sarcastically (and with suspiciously good grammar, it must be said), wrote: "You're a great #rolemodel to your millions of young fans, #Rihanna."
