Rihanna Gets a Gun


Two of them actually. Tattoos. Click here to see them. Wonder what that means?

I hope she’s staying silent just because she refuses to play the game and not because she’s either ashamed or…who knows what’s she’s feeling.

But guns….? I hope it’s a warning to any other man who ever puts his hands on her. But only Rihanna knows for sure. Maybe she meant it for people like me who won’t get out of her business. Regardless, I’m impressed by her silence. I hope I’m right. I hope she’s all right.

BTW, I spoke with some high school girls this weekend and yup, they blame Rihanna. Not for “making” him hit her but for taking him back. If she really has. They also introduced me to this.

 Ah youth.
