Rihanna’s love life has been the talk of the town for months now, with numerous reports tying her to Chris Brown and Ashton Kutcher. But the Barbadian singer has denied every claim and that may be because her eye isn’t on a guy… but rather a girl.
On April 19, Rihanna tweeted that she was on a date with her female friend, Melissa Forde. “I’m on my first date in almost 2 yearz,” she tweeted, adding that she was spending “#datenight” with “my lover for the night @mforde11” and even posting a picture of the herself and Forde together.
Photos of the two ladies holding hands as they left dinner at Malibu’s Giorgio Baldi and hit up Hollywood’s famed Roxbury nightclub for a night of dancing. “Pre game after dinner, before the clurrb,” she wrote and added, “2night is gon’ be a good one, I could feel it! #1LOVE #420 #MARLEY.”
Though Rihanna’s tweets seemed pretty tame at first, by the early morning, the Barbadian singer seemed smitten by her new date. “Beautiful is great, submissive is even better. Bawse bitch who’s submissive yet the captain of the ship n HONEST…#priceless #marryME,” she tweeted at nearly 6 a.m, adding, “But she bad… So maybe she won’t…. But s—t, then again maybe she will.”
Apparently, there’s been rumors of a romance between the two for some time and the ladies even share matching tattoos that read, “never a failure, always a lesson.” And Rihanna has been the subject of bisexual rumors since 2009, when photos of her fondling a woman’s breasts surfaced. However, the touchy-feely singer shrugged off the rumor, saying she just appreciates the female form.
Well, clearly Rihanna appreciates Forde and perhaps she will be the one to give Rihanna a master lesson in love. If that is indeed the case, we say go for it, because regardless of gender, love is still love. Plus, they make a pretty hot couple.
Rihanna isn’t the only female star who’s expressed an interest in women.
