Among the flurry of Twitter pictures posted from Rihanna at the Coachella music festival last weekend, several in particular are causing quite a stir in the blogosphere.
The 24-year-old posted snapshots of herself sitting on top of a bodyguard’s shoulders, rolling a cigar leaf full of marijuana piled on the man’s head. A lot of web sites speculated that the substance, which looked powdery and white in the tinted Instagram shots, might have been cocaine.
One follower commented: “Chick looks like a druggie.”
Another person even compared her to Whitney Houston, writing: ”I love her music, not her lifestyle. Hope she gets this under control before we have her funeral on TV like Whitney Houston.”
A parent of one of her younger followers added: ”I have a ten-year-old daughter who loves her, and I wouldn’t want my child seeing this.”
