Good Girl Gone Wild: Rihanna’s Top 5 Craziest Moments
Rihanna knows how to keep up her shock value. Just when we think she can’t get any raunchier, crazier, or wilder, she hits us with another move that leaves us shaking our heads. We love her fun, fearlessness but sometimes we question her IDGAF attitude. The latest and greatest of Rihanna’s wildin’ out moments is her new tattoo. Last night she stopped by a tattoo parlor in LA and apparently got so caught up in being in 2 Pac’s west coast territory that she let Mark Mahoney tat “Thug Life” on her fingers in pink ink. Check out what other moments made us say, “That chic cray!”
Kadooment Day Parade
Anyone from the islands or who has at least been to Carnival or the Caribbean Day Parade in Brooklyn knows Rihanna’s celebration of Kadooment Day in Barbados is pretty typical of the festivities. But that doesn’t mean she wasn’t going hard. Drink in hand, fingers on her toes and rocking a jewel-encrusted two-piece with fishnets, Ri Ri enjoyed backing it up and grinding on anyone who came up to her float throughout the day. But as a Bajan native in her home country, we can’t say we blame her.
It’s tough to pick one crotch-grabbing moment of Rihanna’s because she does it in pretty much every performance now. But the “You Da One” video hit the over-the-top mark for most people. One crotch grab in a still shot we can take; 20 within 3 minutes and 28 seconds as she grinds in front of the camera? Not so much. Cute video otherwise, though!
Speaking of videos, let’s talk "S&M,” if you were so privileged to see it. When the video for the single first came out, 11 countries banned it and YouTube flagged it so only viewers 18 and older could see it. Ironically, the censorship she was poking fun at in the first place is out of the way now, but that hasn’t stopped us from scratching our heads at the whips, chains, latex and ball-gags. There’s no way she could’ve thought this would fly, but that was probably the point.
Life of the Party
Most people have drank too much in one night at some point in their lives, but not many of us has been one of the most popular pop artists in the world passed out right in the middle of club. That happened to Rihanna one night in London in 2010, and of course someone was there to snap pics. The singer was reportedly knocked out in that position until 4:30 in the morning, but we’re sure someone woke her up in time to pay the $30,000 tab she racked up buying out the bar for her entourage.
