The Rihanna fire strikes again, this time in response to a story that MTV tweeted regarding her marijuana escapades at Coachella (via Us Magazine):

From MTV:

The 24-year-old singer posted snapshots of her hanging in the Coachella crowd, sitting on top of a bodyguard’s head, rolling a cigar leaf full of marijuana, but the picture didn’t go over so well with all of her fans. Plenty of sites speculated that the substance, which looked powdery and white in the tinted Instagram shot, might’ve been cocaine. We’re not rocket scientists, but it seemed like the cigar leaf clearly pointed to marijuana.

Of course, it didn’t take long for Rihanna to tweet back, saying, “Yikes. . . I ran out of f-cks to give.” MTV deleted their original tweet, but later responded to Ri with a “Well played.”

In other Rihanna news, the pop star just released a behind-the-scenes clip from her dance rehearsals for “Where Have You Been.” Judging by the footage, it looks like we can expect a video chock-full of footwork. Rihanna’s been working so hard that she hasn’t even stopped to eat.

“She was dancing with french fries in her hand,” choreographer Hi-Hat said. “You heard what she said?” Rihanna added. “I was dancing… Eating my dinner!”
