Rihanna‘s new video for “Diamonds” just dropped a few minutes ago and it seems as if the world has one burning question. No, it’s not whether or not you can get high from smoking diamonds, but rather this: Is that Chris Brown‘s tattooed arm making a cameo? What follows is special VH1 Tuner investigation!
So, first things first, let’s get a good look at that tattoo:
Thanks to the telltale appearance and placement of that thumb, this appears to be the RIGHT arm of a heavily tattooed male. But is it Chris Brown’s arm? We don’t have enough evidence yet. What does his right arm look like? Here’s a picture of him appearing SLEEVELESS on the Today Show back in June.
Let’s take a closer look at that arm, shall we?
Now, let’s compare the arms side-by-side!
Okay, here’s where the rubber meets the road. When you compare the arm from “Diamonds” (on the left) with Chris Brown’s arm (on the right), it appears we have two different arms at play. We don’t recognize any of the identifying characteristics on the arm on the right —the Mickey Mouse style hands, that weird helmet thingie— with the heretofore anonymous arm on the left. Don’t believe us? LOOK CLOSER.
Now, we wouldn’t put it past Chris Brown to get an entirely new tatt sleeve over the last four months or so, but we have not been able to find any pictures of this specific angle of his inner right arm more recent than these. So, we cannot say WITH 100% CERTAINTY that this is definitively NOT Chris Brown. However, ladies and gentlemen of the jury, we have provided you with the evidence, so we leave this in your capable hands. WHAT SAY YOU? Let us know in the comments!
Oh, and if you haven’t already, you really should watch Rihanna’s video for “Diamonds”!
