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. 

THANK YOU.

We recently wrapped up the crowdfunding campaign for our ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project, and it was a smashing success. About 10,364 readers pitched in with donations averaging $45, and together they contributed about $467,374 toward our $500,000 goal.

That's amazing. We still have donations from letters we sent in the mail coming back to us, so we're on pace to hit—if not exceed—that goal. Thank you so much. We'll keep you posted here as the project ramps up, and you can join the hundreds of readers who have alerted us to corruption to dig into.
