After telling Elle UK all about her mother’s wrath over nude Instagram pics posted last December by best friend/personal assistant Melissa Forde, Rihanna has dropped the “Look ma, no pants!” act for double-stacked jeans.
The look was debuted at the launch of her River Island clothing line in London. Reminds me of the time Britney Spears wore a thong on the outside of her clothes in the “I’m A Slave 4 U” video. A few too many steps ahead of pulling your underwear up until you smell smoke from the friction fire in your genitals. It was a trend about as likely to spread as dark on light denim. She sort of makes it work. But who else could?
Here’s the story about why Rihanna tried the whole “more is more” thing:
“I’m not afraid of any person in this world, but my mother, I’m terrified of her. She called me two days ago and reeled me in about two naked pictures Melissa put up on Instagram — a sneak peek from a photo book she’s making about me.”
“She went crazy on me. I was, like, embarrassed. I felt like I got my ass whipped in front of my class at school. She humbled the f*ck out of me.”
