Take a gander at these snaps of ‘Fading‘ star Rihanna smoking what appears to be a blunt of marijuana in Hawaii yesterday.
Dressed casually and seemingly unbothered by being photographed in the act, the shot- which will undoubtedly ruffle a few a ‘child conscious’ feathers – arrives after the Island belle was snapped on her way to state via LAX airport surfaced here yesterday morning.
Taking to her Twitter account in alleged reference to the snaps, she insinuated:
“Kush rolled, glass full…I prefer the better things!”
If this is indeed marijuana that Ms. Fenty is puffing on, this is just one more bad habit she will have to overcome if she ever hopes to improve the instrument that is her voice.
For, as any good vocal coach would tell her (if only she picks up their call), smoking has and will always affect the intonation, stamina and vocal coordination of any act that has taken up the habit. A fact which explains the oft heckled and exhaustion-ridden noises she stays making during her live sets.
Of course, as is the case with every adult, Rihanna can and will do just as she pleases, with no moral obligation to raise the children of – what will certainly be – many an angry parent.
However, if not for the sake of her public image, we hope the inevitable criticism from this will force her to analyze just how beneficial her alleged habit is to a voice which already has several odds stacked against and on it.
