What Was Rihanna Smoking At Coachella???

| Filed under: RihannaDrugsCoachella

Rihanna coachella powder

Ummm…what are you rolling on your bodyguards head, dear?

Rihanna has been uploading increasingly racy pictures lately, including an accidental nip slip, but this may be her most scandalous BY FAR!

The singer tweeted this Instagram photo from Coachella on Tuesday night (which has since been removed) of herself perched on top of a bodyguard's shoulders and rolling some kind of smokeable substance. She accompanied the photo with the text, "Memories don't live like people do #coachella".

Over 1000 fans proceeded to comment on the photo while it was up to discuss what they thought the substance could be. We have no idea, but is there any chance that it is NOT a drug?

She's not afraid to show off her wild side and wanted to make that clear when she later tweeted:

"I'm crazy, and I don't pretend to be anything else".

We understand she's having a bit of fun and is maybe just trying to get a reaction out of the world, but we wouldn't recommend that ANYBODY posts photos of drug use on the internet — ESPECIALLY celebrities!

Think about your young fans, gurl! Is this the example you want to set for them?

    mmmh.. HELLO?
    she obviously doesn't give a F%*K..
    what part of the phrase "I'm crazy, and I don't pretend to be anything else" you don't understand?

  2. 2

    She just gets classier and classier.

    Its just marijuana… Shes in California where is it basically legal to smoke. Noone has EVER died from marijuana , on the contrary it has MANY medical benefits. I do not smoke marijuana myself anymore , but I am so proud and greatful i have something natural to resource to should I ever have the need for medical use. I take marijuana over anything medically engineered ( not natural at all) !!!!

    She can do what she wants. Little girls stopped looking up to her when she went back to the man that beat her!!!

  5. 5

    She has a lot of very young fans. Whether she likes it or not, that makes her a role model, and with that comes a responsibility to set a good example. She can do whatever she wants in private, but in public she should at least pretend to show some discretion.
    Re: GuidetteInItaly – You are right, she doesn't give a f**k - hopefully her fame will quickly fade and no-one will give a f**k about her either.

  6. 6

    I think it's very clear ( has been for a long time) that Rihanna smokes weed like so many other celebrities. Is this news? Everybody knows this right? You would be shocked if you knew how little celebrities do not smoke weed

  7. 7

    shes lost

  8. 8

    This is the part where the famous artist who has everything screws it up by not giving a %@&* about herself or her fans. A year or two from now, she'll be well on her way down Lilo lane and risks losing everything.

  9. 9

    She's so trashy but she loves being that way. :p

  10. ladylay says – reply to this


    How is that marijuana? It looks like wet baby powder. That is a powder not green plant. Sorry.

  11. 11

    Wow, she blazes. Like the majority of the adult population. Next.

  12. 12

    Perez, please fuck off with your self righteous bullshit. Who the fuck are you to comment on what a role model is after the way you've acted all these years with your bullying and cattiness. It's just a freaking joint, so shut the hell up, build a fucking bridge and get the fuck over it.

  13. 13

    I love the ganja but she's going through something right now….she really doesn't need to be so out about it, yea rappers take pictures of them smoking but they don't have 7 year olds singing their songs and wanting to be them. It's just a bad look, like someone said…she's lost

  14. 14

    She obviously does drugs sometimes, look at her face nowadays she looks glazed half the time she's doing anything. Whether it's pot or cocaine doesn't matter she's changed a lot over the last couple of years and you can see it. Im usually not somebody to comment on these things, but just watch.

  15. 15

    marijuana is NOT a drug! Let's just legalize it, i would rather see this than her getting drunk!

  16. Marr says – reply to this


    This is ridiculous. I highly doubt with the lyrics she's been spitting that the audience she's targeting is little girls, and that's been apparent for the past year or two. Perez, don't you realize that weed is basically legal in California? She's at coachella, what do you expect? I'm not a fan of the girl but who gives a shit?

  17. Chastos says – reply to this


    nice rocks

  18. 18

    Yeah Rihanna…Im tired of this PC crap.

    If a kid starts doing drugs just because a celebrity is doing it…then thats a major parental fail right there.

    People do drugs. Period. And they will always do drugs. We have to educate our kids so they know the difference between right and wrong…and make their own choices.

    And Perez…stop the condescending tone. Your sounding more and more like a Republican housewife from the midwest.

  19. 19

    Weed is not a drug.

  20. 20

    Re: Meggie246524 – Agreed!! It's like she#s in a competition with herself.

  21. 21

    I love Rihanna and I love how she was in the middle of crowd having a good time like a normal person. BUT yes posting pix like that is a NO NO :/

  22. 22

    Re: Meggie246524 – well.. she IS wearing a Chanel.. ;D

  24. teriyaki13 says – reply to this


    I don't know how ppl are saying this is weed. It is apparent that it is white powder. Unless weed has changed it's look this certainly is not it.

  25. 25

    Um since when did weed turn into a white powder?!?! It looks like she has a pountain of blow on her bodyguards head, not weed. YAY She's a cokehead … shocking.

  26. Temarisand says – reply to this


    I smoked weed before…and that ny dear friends is not weed……………….that is crack or something else…..

  27. 27

    And hilarious by the way that she calls herself 'crazy' and doesnt pretend to be anything else. She's such a wanna be. Being an overly manufactured, promiscuous, drug using celebrity these days isnt exactly crazy.. they are a dime a dozen.

  28. 28

    Set Example! Are u fucking kidding me! Cant she live her life how ever she wants?? She didnt sign up for "Set an Example" fuck off!!! Go have fun and show off them perky tits and live you life.
    Setting an example from a guy holding up a little girl up with your shirt up on the red carpet!!!! A homo that used to dress like a flaming homo, finally took it down a notch…

  29. mh says – reply to this


    doesn't even look like bud unless they used a grinder. either way.. who cares. everyone smokes. next.

  30. 30

    If it was coke, lucky bodyguard!! Got to fuck the crap out of that hole!! Yeehaa!!
    Wish I could have partied with here!! She is having a good time! Fuck you all!!

  31. 31

    1) It's not weed. It is white and a powder so something stronger. 2) Weed is an illegal drug in California. 3)Legalized marajuana is for medical purpose, not for a bunch of idiots to smoke. 4) Yes, most celebrities do smoke weed, most of them dropped out of high school too, so they are not very smart. So they are drugged up and stupid and then they go on television to tell us who we should vote for. Rhianna is doing this for shock value. She use to be a good singer and performer. She did a performance when she first started with Chris Brown on an award show. She had something on that showed a little skin and she kept trying to make sure that she was covered up. Now, she dresses like a whore, and lets men beat on her. Do you think it could be the drugs??/

  32. random says – reply to this


    looks like DMT

  33. 33

    Re: perezisadumbass – thank you for being intelligent, because that is something lacking here. You are absolutely right about the sock value factor, I completely agree. She's getting desperate to keep herself relevant so she's turning to the trashy path.

  34. 34

    Re: Yenkme – You are gross. I feel bad for you that you carry yourself in such a low self-degrading manner. You fit right in with the Rihanna's of the world.

  35. Starlashia says – reply to this


    Ummm PPL Yes It Is Marijuanna. It's Called Kush!!! Once it is broken up it is very fine, not like reg. weed, almost powdery than leafy. The colors can vary depending on the strain. I have seen white, purple, gold looking, to neon green. So no it's not a white powder substance. Looks like she's rolling a blunt of Kush 2 me!!!

  36. Starlashia says – reply to this


    Yep, in comparison to the WHITE letters on her shirt, the "substance" looks a light green in color.

  37. 37

    Does it really make a difference whether or not its marijuana or something else? I mean I think we all know that drug use among celebrities is pretty common. The problem in my opinion is not the drug use itsself, or which drug off the list of drugs Rihanna does this happens to be. The problem is that she herself chose to post this picture and advertise the fact that she uses drugs, no matter what kind they are. That is irresponsible. I don't care what any body says. For somebody to have full knowledge that their fan base consists girls ages 15 and under and still post pictures like this is incredibly irresponsible, and almost a slap in the face to all the girls that look up to her. It's sad.

  38. 38

    shes been a drug addict what an example for her fans. sad shes like this i never since an artist like this in years it would make her fans do the same this world is upside down.

  39. 39

    What else would a CRACK-WHORE SMOKE……CRACK, BITCHES!

  40. 40

    Just when you think Rihanna could not get anymore SKANKIER…..SHE DOES!

  41. 41

    Looks like bath salts. If it is, she'll be talking to people that aren't there in no time. That stuff makes you psycho in no time. She's well on her way to shaving her head and beating cars with umbrellas. Hot mess.

  42. 42

    First, it looks like feta cheese, which does make her crazy. Second, of course it is some kind of drug. Just look at her bodyguards face, aduhhhhh. At that rate, I can see him protecting her in s-l-o-w motion. Losers.

  43. holly69 says – reply to this


    Rihanna is a good role model! she shows people that being your self is ok! Don't be fake!!! it's clear that it's Marijuana it dosen't hurt you!!! so let's all light one up and shut the F*&^# up!!

  44. 44

    LMAO! People it's marijuana, it's just been broken down probaly by a grinder. The thing in her fingers is a Blunt wrap, just a broken down tobacco blunt that she's obviously going to put weed into. WEED is not a damn drug, it has many medical benefits and can help with anxiety and depression. Now with that said she should've kept this out of the press and she should've kept it a little more hush hush. Everyone does drugs, apparantly she must be going through something if she's choosing to lash out at the media with her ”Don't give a fuck" attitude. But i say FUCK the haters LEGALIZE POT!

  45. 45

    It's KUSH bitches! Light up a blunt and smoke one too hoes!

  46. 46

    Re: NayNayBby – Thank you!

  47. 47

    love her!!

  48. 48

    what a fucking piglet

  49. 49

    Re: cami – un, last bale i bought wasn't white.

  50. 50

    you and the other it's just "POT" commenters are really too stupid for words. never have i bought ANY white crumbly pot.

  51. 51

    Lord, I hate her. She is aware that 8 year old kids look up to her, right? If she wants to act like a fucking trainwreck, she should start targeting older people with her music.

  52. 52

    Re: rosebud99 – No, thats the idiotic media and stupid people in general. This girl sits on a stage and sings, most in which are wrote by talented song writes. Actors look pretty and pretend to be someone else. Athletes run and catch a ball. ITS NOT THEIR FAULT SOCIETY is fucking stupid and people put them on pedestals while setting unrealistic high standards on them. They don't have to be a role model for shit. If I were famous i'd do what the hell I wanted to do, and if the media or parents flipped their shit I'd tell them "You're a shitty parent, children shouldn't be looking up to someone that does nothing special. They should be looking up to astronauts and scientist that are trying to cure cancer."

    Fuck off with that "role model" bullshit.

  53. 53

    Lots of idiocy in this thread. A) It's 2012. People are calling her a bad role model for smoking a little bit of weed. Stop raising your idiotic kids to think weed is bad, while drinking a winecooler or beer in front of them because its not. B) It's weed. Once again you have ignorant morons judging people on something they know little or nothing about. Some strains are very very light green. Almost like a neon green tint. When you take that light colored weed and flash it with a camera it will appear way light. You're not going to roll a fucking joint with straight up coke. Thats enough weed to roll a blunt. shes holding a blunt wrap. Go figure.

    Re: perezisadumbass – I dropped out of high school, went and got a GED, went to community college, then went to a regular college and now make 120,000 a year..Just sayin. Don't make idiotic generalizations like that. In fact anyone with a high school diploma is an idiot. Simply because they wasted four years of their life learning shit they'll end up not using and ultimately forgetting. I've met people with more degrees than a thermometer and most were stupid. It doesn't matter how many degrees from a college or any Ivy league school you have if you're an idiot that lacks common sense or the ability to think logically or rationally. Something 90% of the population can't do.

  54. 54

    Weed, Crack, or whatever it is… hopefully it improves her voice cause her singing sounds worse than a dying elephant. And I suppose its too much to wish that it also improves her looks also so that she doesnt look like a gremlin anymore.

  55. 55

    She is such a talentless attention whore!

  56. Regus says – reply to this


    Are you potheads retarded?! Did you all forget what marijuana looks like or were you all so desperate to defend your hobby that you didn't even bother to look at the picture? When weed is a white clumpy powder please let me know

  57. 57

    Re: Regus – LMFAO This is most likely not your typical weed, it looks more like a hydroponic grade marijuana which can come in various colors. So before you start putting us 'potheads' down how about you do your research? :) This is some good ass Kush! Not any other type of drug, AND what the fuck else would you roll into a blunt wrap? Think about it you don't roll crack, coke, etc. into a blunt wrap.

  58. 58

    Plus people it could be what we call white 'hairs' on the pot. Most likey a stronger form of marijuana such as Hydroponics. People that don't smoke pot really shouldn't state opinions on what the substance is. It's clear to me that this is some strong shit, AND good for her! Always roll the blunt, fuck a pipe!

  59. 59

    Crackhead…she's acting out because Chris Brown doesnt want her druggie self anymore. He's on the positive train focusing on his MUSIC and this girl is getting high all in the name of having"fun". Will it be fun when she's in rehab or even worse–a coffin? Pray for her, SMH

    first of all entertainers should not be role models they are here to entertain thats thier job secound they're human they shouldnt monitor they life they should be able to live and not worry about stepping on egg shells third yeah she went back to a man that beat she forgave him i dobout she forgot

  66. Miss J-Roc Rocker says – reply to this


    Its Weed why would anyone be rolling coke in blunt paper and if you look closely you can see it and people who smoke weed arent all high school dropouts step out into the really world and take a look around before assuming things

  67. 67

    Re: NayNayBby – Growing hydroponically has nothing to do with the color. Thats just a different faster way of growing it that yields better. The light color is based on its strain as well as how dried out it was and how cured it was. Definitely properly cured and not overly dry. In fact that could of been a bit too under dried. Probably had a bitch keeping it lit.

  68. RubyM says – reply to this


    No one likes her anymore. She's too skanky and can't sing for shyt.

  69. 69

    Re: WittyinMI – You're an idiot…and clearly a burnout loser…..just like her. What a terrible role model this piece of garbage is! Whe is way worse than Madonna or Britney ever were. Think she needs another beat down!

  70. Bee says – reply to this


    It's not weed, it's cocaine. People that do that, roll it in a blunt with their weed and smoke it. That way they don't have to snort it and go through all of the side effects that come with snorting, ie constant sniffing, randomly runny nose, deviated septum, etc. Which gives them benefit of being able to deny they do it. However, they still get the same high. The weed also masks the smell of the cocaine burning. How do I know? I dated a guy for 2 1/2 years before I realized he had a cocaine problem because he laced his blunts with it. I walked in on him rolling it and that's how I found out. The weed was bad enough (as I don't smoke or drink), but this was just too much. Needless to say, he had to go.

    You people are so stupid. I've been smoking weed for 10 years and lived in Colorado for 4. I've seen every type of weed imaginable. Nothin looks like a white powder when grinded up. Who would even grind up weed onto someones head? It'd get lost in the hair. Even though the same would happen with the drugs that are probably what you see being a white powder proves it not weed. It is either molli, pure E know as MDMA. It coould also be K, Ketamine. Both those things while not often smoked can be and would be a good way to hid doing it rather than blowing lines. More unlikely it is crack which would be stupid to smoke outta anything but a pipe. If it was mixed in with weed it can be smoked in a joint but as I said there is no weed present. Also it could be heroin, which comes in white powder. I doubt its heroin though cause I doubt she's a junkie.

  73. 73

    Re: perezisadumbass – very true. it's sad that girls' role models are slutty dropouts. beyonce, rihanna, britney and angelina all didn't even go to college. lame

    Rihanna, if smoking pot makes you "crazy" than California must be made up of some pretty insane people.

  75. NikkiCO says – reply to this


    i don't care for Rihanna smoking weed. The numbers of people doing it now is no big deal. It's the fact she uploaded a photo as if this makes her 'badass' or 'edgy'. When in reality it just makes her look like she's trying too hard. If a normal person who wasn't famous did that, everyone would think they are a prick, and i see no reason why Rihanna is any different.

    my roomate's sister-in-law made $20218 past week. she is making cash on the computer and got a $366900 condo. All she did was get lucky and put into work the guide exposed on this web site LazyCash19. Com

    Re: MalhzOrK – are you blind?! Because you smoke weed make you know everything about it? that is clearly marijuana, and a wrap in her hand. People like you are the reason RUMORS circulate and people think the worst!! If she did that much of any other substance she would be dead!

  82. 82

    Re: ladylay – Your an idiot. It is obviously weed.

  83. 83

    Re: WellBerry – Because she smokes weed???? really??? Shes from the Island I am pretty she has been smoking weed her whole life. I am pretty sure she has been high many times in public.

  84. 84

    Re: perezisadumbass – Its really easy to get approved for a licsence for medical marijuana; especially if your celebrity. She has been like this for a long time just because everyone was too oblivous watching her on CoverGirl commercials and not listening to her lyrics. She isn't a role model, she is an artist. And artist are all self absorbed and fucked up and thats why they are good at what they do (well at least not for little girls. I look up to her) TONS OF PEOPLE SMOKE WEED EVERY DAY!!!!

  85. 85

    Re: NayNayBby – wow you really should just shut up, i've been smoking for a really long time and all the bull you're saying don't even make sense…you're embarrassing yourself and sound like you started smoking literally 2 weeks ago, stop.

  86. 86

    And you guys relax….it IS weed, instagram tends to make things change colors when the filters are added to the picture…i lmaoed so hard at people saying it's heroin, crack, and even super K…like wtf shes surrounded by people she wouldn't be that stupid AND she was hanging out with snoop literally a little while before so it doesn't really a genius to put 2 + 2 together…jeez
