Rihanna shocks and delights her fans with her often scandalous and always sexy Instagrams, but there’s one woman who’s definitely not feeling it: Her mother! Rihanna revealed that her mom Monica had some strong parental words after seeing a racy photo of her daughter lounging by a fireplace sans pants.
“I’m not afraid of any person other than my mother, but I’m terrified of her,” Riri admitted to Elle. “She called me two days ago and reeled me in about two pictures Melissa put up on Instagram, a sneak peek from a photo book she’s making about me.” The Melissa in question is Rihanna’s best friend Melissa Forde, who’s often seen in Rihanna’s vacation snaps and twitpics. But despite their friendship, it looks like she may owe Ri an apology after the tongue-lashing she got from her mother! “She went crazy on me. I was embarrassed. I felt like I got my ass whipped in front of my class at school. She humbled the f—out of me.” We have assembled 45 more of Rihanna’s Instagrams that also are probably not mother-approved…Check out the gallery above!
It sounds like Rihanna can use some TLC from her mom these days, however. The pop star was forced to cancel last night’s second stop of the Diamonds World Tour in Boston in order to recover from laryngitis. “#BOSTON this is the hardest thing for me to deal with! I feel like we’ve been waiting on this day forever, and I’m hurt that I let you down,” she told her fans on Twitter. “I hate disappointing people that never ever let me down!! I’m so embarrassed about this! Thank you for your prayers and well wishes!”
