Was Rihanna mocking Chris Brown’s 1/2 Asian gf with a rice cakes pic?

If I were a PR person, I would lay down strict rules for all celebrity clients, not just the young impulsive ones, to never tweet or post photos unsupervised. I would have people making sure that every single tweet and photo was pre-approved. It’s just a surefire way to earn negative coverage and bad publicity. One dumbass drunken tweet, a political rant, some racy photos, they can all undo months and even years of a celebrity’s carefully constructed image. You can’t erase anything either, because it spreads all over within minutes.

I’m just getting philosophical here because I don’t want to even discuss the f*ckery that Rihanna is engaged in on Twitter. She really needs to step away from the computer. Anyway Rihanna did this a few days ago, and we’re just getting to it now because Chris Brown’s girlfriend reportedly responded, but I don’t think that’s actually her. First some background. Rihanna is probably screwing Chris Brown again, and he’s also got a girlfriend, a singer named Karrueche Tran. Reports claim that Karrueche and Chris have an “open relationship.” Karrueche is half Vietnamese. This is an actual photo and message that Rihanna tweeted. [via Bossip]

Maybe Rihanna just likes cinnamon ricecakes and stuck some earrings and sunglasses on some because she thought it would be cute. Yeah, doubtful.

Meanwhile, Bossip is claiming that Karrueche responded and that she compared herself to Angelina Jolie being with Brad, but that’s not accurate. This is from Karrueche’s alleged Facebook page, and one of her friends made the Brangelina comment, not her. Also, Karrueche tweeted that she doesn’t have Facebook.

So all we have to go on are the cinnamon ricecakes with earrings and sunglasses on them. Were they a reference to Chris’ girlfriend? What the hell else could Rihanna have meant by tweeting that?

Update: Truthteller lets us know that one of the lyrics to Rihanna’s birthday cake, a remix of which featured Chris Brown, is “Come and get it. Sweeter than a rice cake, cake worth sipping.” So maybe she just is referencing sweet rice cakes, since rice cakes are known for being sweet? The photo could mean something other than what Bossip is guessing, but I don’t see how exactly.

Second Update: The “I’m Angelina, You Brad” line is from Nicki Minaj’s Stupid Hoe. Thanks to all of you who mentioned that!

    All parties involved are so mature and excellent spellers. I’m impressed!

    • gg says:

      That stands out doesn’t it? Intelligence abounds …

      Also: rice cakes are not usually sweet, they come in all flavors, including cheese.

  2. Zelda says:

    Wow. She sure knows how to waste public sympathy…
    I can’t really see what else she could have meant by that.

    • Maguita says:

      Would someone please answer me this though:

      Why are these, or any for that matter, women fighting over a Chris Brown!!! Please answer me this!!! I beg of you!
      He’s not a good dancer. All he can is imitate Michael Jackson, and very badly at that. His songs are Karaoke. They’re never playing on my radio, and I listen to hip hop.

      If not artistically inclined, than what about his physique?

      He is not pretty. Even when not talking. He is not pretty, actually quite sub-standard for a star. He has a very tacky sense of style. Very NKOTB circa 1997. He doesn’t know how to write, his spelling is atrocious. His rhymes… just don’t. Rhyme that is.

      And how about his personality. He’s not funny. He’s homophobic. He’s misogynist. A violent misogynist. A convicted violent misogynist. He is quite hateful in his tweets. That his mommy made him erase them all btw.

      So maybe he tickles your funny bone? Although, quite obviously he doesn’t have one, and had made no attempts at self-deprecation. Rather many attempts at self-defecation. But then again, we all shit on you Shit Brown.

  3. me says:

    ugggh …really…over that sociopath?

  4. Mimi says:

    I’ll never understand why people want to publicly air their dirty laundry. Look at me, look at me, I’m trashy!

    • Kara Ann says:

      Yes, yes, and yes!!
      What moves a person to do this? It just shouts that you have no dignity. Amazingly, these kind of people then expect others to agree with how they are handling things. I don’t know how many times I’ve told people (usually, young ones) that you are inviting drama/trouble with this type of public social interaction. Argh, they continue it but, hey, don’t come crying’ to me about he said/she said/they said when you should be smart enough to stay out of trashy situations like that!!!

  5. TruthTella says:

    In her “Birthday Cake” remix with Chris she also says she’s “Sweeter than a rice cake”.

    • Celebitchy says:

      Thanks Truthteller, I’ll update with that as it could explain it.

      • TruthTella says:

        No worries, Even though i only listened to the remix once i remember that and even at the time i thought it was a diss towards Chris’s “girlfriend”…
        Is she even his girlfriend or just the equivelant of Cassie to Diddi AKA just the mistress??? “Open relationship” in this instance just sounds like Chris gets to screw Rihanna (sorry to be blunt) and this girl takes that and all the gifts Chris can throw at her…

    • JJ says:

      shady as hell. so she’s pretty much saying that karucha is dry and boring. shade.

      • gg says:

        Team Karrueche on all this. I hope she escapes without contracting numerous STDs. I can totally picture Rihanna intentionally picking up some STD just to give it to Chris who would then pass it on to her rival.

  6. truthSF says:

    Chris’s girlfriend is very pretty, but what the hell does she see in that douchville. Him and slutty Riri deserve each other.

    And FYI Riri, the girl is blacker than you, you green eyed trash. (this is not an intended as an insult to anyone with green eyes, just Rihanna).

    • Lithe says:

      Oh good, because I love my green eyes :)

      Seriously though, all 3 are to be pitied for being dumber than a box of rocks.

    • Blah says:

      “the girl is blacker than you, you green eyed trash.”

      Much resent and hate, no ?

      Sad but pretty common toward mixed race /lighter people within the black community, though.
      The girl may be stupid but is not responsable for her genes.

  7. silken_floss says:

    These two silly birds fighting over a woman beater *smh*

  8. Lucy2 says:

    Is anyone surprised? Riganna isn’t exactly the epitome of class and brains.
    Someone should tell Karrueche that “getting” an angry, abusive man-child isn’t exactly a win. How stupid must she be?

  9. Aiobhan says:

    I think they are all a bunch of tools with too much time on their hands. I don’t personally get the reference. They are no where near Brangelina/Aniston territory. I don’t want to get in the usual war that ensues when the triangle from Hell has a post creates but if I think comparing Rihanna to Jennifer has got to be the worst insult that has ever been lobbed at her (Jennifer). Karreuche is no where near my girl Angie. And Brad is a lot of things but slime ball, douchelord, woman beater he will NEVER be. Please just stop the madness!!!

    • truthSF says:

      ^THIS!!! And stopping the madness…it’s 2012, the madness has only just begun. :)

    • Riana says:

      I feel like most people won’t get the reference (or maybe they do) Nicki Minaj said “I’m Angelina…” line in one of her raps. It had no reference to anyone or anything but just being a general pop culture related insult.

      One of Kar’s friends just picked it up to flip off Rihanna since they felt she was insulting her.

      Honestly I think in some bizarre sick way Kar is doing generally better since as far as the public is concerned even if Chris and Ri are boning she’s still the ‘faithful girlfriend’ whereas Rihanna is the ‘jealous psycho missing the man who gave her two black eyes’.

      Ugh…deciphering idiots makes me stomach hurt.

    • Photo lab says:

      For what it’s worth, the friend that brought up Jen/Brangelina was quoting a Nikki Minaj song (which Ms. Tran was referencing in her “Nikki voice).

  10. lisa says:

    She is blatantly mocking the other girl.
    I don’t get people who still stand up for her and try make excuses for her when she continually shows her true colors.

    • Day says:

      THIS!!!! Over the pass couple of months, she has been showing people who she really is. This is why I love celebrities having twitter. You see less of the careful, constructed image their PR team puts out and MORE of the real them. Rihanna is a stupid, petty, immature little girl w/issues. No self respecting woman would date CB. They are fighting over a dude that would physically fight them both. Doesn’t get any dumber than that.

  11. P says:

    This girl should go away, she has the mentality of a 5 year old trying to get attention. I mean, how old is she anyway to get engaged in a twitter fight? Pathetic.

  12. gee says:

    Rihanna’s comment is racist. Pathetic.

  13. Kittypants says:

    Well, doesn’t this whole situation reek of class and intelligence. All parties involved are numbskulls. I am Jack’s complete lack of surprise.

  14. flan says:

    A month ago Rihanna was still the pop princess who got beaten and got all the sympathy for it. CB was courting her forgiveness since it made him look good.

    Now she’s the idiot who is competing with another woman over that same CB. It boggles the mind how she managed it, but she found a way to make him feel like he stands above her again.

    I’m not surprised Jay-Z is promoting other stars. She’s too idiotic and unpleasant to retain even a fraction of all she had going for her. (And by that I don’t mean talent in the voice department, but a whole team of songwriters, musicians, pr people etc and a big amount of public sympathy).

    • Riana says:

      Rita Oro seems to be the girl that is slowly coming into the limelight under Jay Z’s control. I imagine he sees Rihanna for the ticking time bomb she is and wants to be as far away from her as possible when the sh-t hits the fan…and then the wall…the other wall…the door…and the carpet.

      • Day says:

        Jay is a business man first and foremost. It is actually smart on his part to cut his losses now. I see Rihanna going DOWN in 2012. Everybody can see it but her(b/c she is so arrogant and truly believes she can’t be touched) and her delusional fans who sit on twitter all day filling her empty head w/a bunch of nonsense.

      • Flan says:

        You two are totally right.

        Lots of people have become weary of her now that would first have been amongst her supporters. These include:
        -mothers of young kids
        -young women who used to look up to her, but don’t like abuse and can’t understand her going after him
        -guys who thought she was hot, but now an idiot and move on to the next piece

        Jay Z knows all this and goes with a safer bet; someone who doesn’t act this immature.

  15. K-MAC says:

    howling! seriously cannot stop laughing….these three are perfect for each other, which makes me think that Jen/Ang/Brad triangle is accurate and those three deserve each other.

    Oh, EVERYONE needs to continue to post such things because it is so making my day

  16. dahlia noir says:

    Both girls are stupid, Rihanna is a joke, let’s move on on better things.

  17. Riana says:

    Trying to figure out what is in the minds of immature teenager is like trying to decipher an alien language.

    It could be an insult or it could be Rihanna thinking this was funny/cute with no reference to Kar (ugh, name) at all.

    We’ve all seen Rihanna’s tweets, there’s no real logic to the whirlwind going on in that chick’s brain.

  18. Dawn says:

    Yet another reason to unlike this nutso girl.

  19. Embee says:

    Rihanna shops at Safeway? Interesting. The rest? Not so much.

  20. chloew says:

    this girl is a first-class piece of TRASH!

    go away riri, or whatever your name is

  21. Eve says:

    I don’t even know what to say anymore except that…if she loves him so much and going back to him makes her happy, so be it.

    I officially don’t care anymore.

  22. Riana says:

    Oh PS. Celebitchy not sure if you know but the “I’m Angelina…” line that Kar’s friend posted on Facebook is actually a line from Nicki Minaj’s ‘Stupid Hoe’. Nicki’s rap has no reference to anyone, just a general pop culture insult but apparently…these morons think they’re anywhere close to Angie, Jen, and Brad.

  23. atorontogal says:

    The child has gun tatoos! Nuff said.

  24. Leticia says:

    Yes, she was mocking her. I’m starting to think that R and C are a good match for each other. And it will keep the rest of us safe.

  25. spinner says:

    She’s a ‘looser.’

    (yes, this was deliberate)

  26. Jackie says:

    i’m sure this tran girl will ‘forget’ to take her pills soon.

  27. Elizabeth says:

    Amazing how it becomes a fight between the women. Rihanna doesn’t want to address what Chris really is, so she aims her hostility at the GF. Its not about the GF, RiRi – its about you and how you got beat up. Silly girl.

  28. Amanda says:

    Uggh Rihanna’s so stupid and trashy. I like her music but she’s such a moron, I just went to my facebook page and “unliked” her.

    • Flan says:

      I used to like her too and he music as well.

      Was I wrong. The thing, like some others said here, is that with Twitter we get to know the real celebrity.

      And Rihanna is one of the worst personalities Twitter has introduced to us.

  29. Dominique says:

    She says “sweeter THAN a rice cake” not “sweet AS a rice cake”, being as rice cakes really aren’t that sweet, and rather dry. SHADE.

  30. dena says:

    Rihanna is an opportunistic, sympathy-grubbing sociopath. I think she and Chris probably deserve each other. And I believe she probably was an active participant in an abusive relationship and therefore deserved to have her face punched in.

    • Kim says:

      She is immature & makes bad decisions and im sure wasnt totally innocent in her & Chris relationship but ill never say a woman deserves her face punched in. Wait i take that back – if its Casey Anthony then sign me up.

  31. NM6804 says:

    Rihanna also attacked a fan of hers for tweeting her disappointment on her collaboration with CB and her behaviour (and she has attacked fans before). This girl is really vile and ungrateful too but I still defend her on the CB-beating though. Rihanna is not well in general, I wonder if the Rita Ora is getting to her since Jay-Z is cutting her loose, or so it seems.

    • orly says:

      She didn’t attack the fan. The fan tweeted Rihanna directly with her opinion. Rihanna responded. Then the fan went nuts with tweet after tweet, that’s when Rihanna tweeted that she was being bullied.

      Sadly, I watched this go down in real time. Ha.

      Fans can express their opinions, but just because someone is a celebrity doesn’t mean they shouldn’t respond.
      By putting the @ in that tweet, the fan wanted the interaction. Too bad she ended up being bullied by 1000s.

  32. gg says:

    Sad and embarrassing. I don’t like either Rh or CB but I cringe for them – they have no idea how stupid they look conducting these spats on ThA IntrWebZ with their brainiac followers.

  33. NinaG says:

    Do Asians even eat rice cakes? Well if she was saying it to be racist she’s an idiot but maybe it’s relative to the song who knows or cares. But for people acting like it’s shocking that a black person can say racist scrap is annoying. All cultures and races have racist people in it. But I think all of us are prejudice. But judging by her character I believe it was a racial dig at his girlfriend.

    • Flan says:

      I read that it’s a slur for Vietnames people specifically, and that CB’s girlfriend is half-Vietnamese.

  34. Kinda says:

    I don’t buy it. Sweeter than a rice cake but u decide to put sunglasses and earrings that people have pap’d CB gf in? Not coincidence. She generally does not care what we think and thinks she’s popular enough to survive it. She doesn’t care what her fans thinks if she’s throwing away support from loving fans, until u don’t buy her album and the $$ goes down. But that hasn’t happened. So Riri is in her own world, Jay will probably drop her.

  35. skuddles says:

    Two women fighting over Brown?? Excuse me while I vomit.

  36. Meanchick says:

    Fighting on Twitter over Chirs Brown? That’s all I have to say.

  37. Connie says:

    Additionally, “rice cake” is a derogatory term for asians, akin to “cracker” “wet back” etc…
    So, with the inclusion of shades and hoops, yes, jab at the GF

  38. Cerulean says:

    Rihanna is a pathetic mess. She is basically destroying her career for a violent sociopath. I hope the sex was worth it.

    Kar needs to get it together and move on. CB can’t do anything but hurt your chances at a success.

  39. LucyOriginal says:


    I am not going to laugh at the spelling as I always write snickers when I want to say sneakers (lol). But these young women fighting over CB? publicly? really? really? Using Nicki minaj’s song? Comparing their “triangle” to Angie-Brad-Jen? laughable!

  40. Skinnybetch says:

    Rihanna is such a bitter immature bitch. Fame and money have made her miserable.

  41. Kim says:

    Wow what a racist, loser Rhianna is. This is obviously making fun of Chris’ girlfrind being Asian. Ive never seen a young star destroy their career so fast with their hideous actions (dating a beater, posting racist pics, Twitter wars). She is REALLY immature.

  42. Adrien says:

    OMG! Karrueche is a beautiful woman. She deserves better.

  43. Cal27 says:

    On the subject of Chris Brown, Can I bring up the Twitter fight between him and WWE champion CM Punk?

    If you’ve not heard about it, I suggest you check it out, because Punk wants to beat down Brown the same way Brown beat down Rihanna.

    Douchebag deserves it.

    Check it out: http://prince.org/msg/8/376527

    • LucyOriginal says:

      I saw it! The wrstler gave an interview to TMZ and talked about the priceless video he made to CB. Ha!

  44. dahlia1947 says:

    I just witnessed a dumb twitter fight between three 6th graders. They’re all idiots. No, ACTUALLY these chicks are MORE idiotic to be fighting over his pathetic a$#!

    Hhhhmmm, low self esteem much? There, any respect for Rhinna that I had is completely gone. Thanks. NEXT!

  45. hummm says:

    Both are a pair of losers. Fighting for Chris Brown? Seriously?

  46. FeverDream says:

    Rihanna is so out of pocket its not even funny. This was mad racist and wrong.

    They need to put her in rehab because she is acting like a fool.

  47. ZenB!tch says:

    Well both girls are a pair of losers. Fighting over that repulsive thing.

    Celebs should have their own twitters where they can say what they REALLY think and some PR twitter.

    If I was a celeb, I would constantly be in immaculately spelled trouble.

    • madame spellcheck says:

      excuse me, last time I checked, losers was spelled “loosers.” accordingly, your post should say. “well both girls are a pair of loosers.” ; )

  48. MizzVJJ says:

    I dont understand how that is a racist pic.

    • madame spellcheck says:

      excuse me, last time I checked, losers was spelled “loosers.” accordingly, your post should say. “well both girls are a pair of loosers.” ; )n

  49. Bliss! says:

    i got this from this bloghttp://lindaikeji.blogspot.com/2012/03/rihanna-vs-karrueche-tran-battle-for.html ….. sorry the tweets aren’t showing

    It is widely believed that Rihanna was talking about Karrueche when she said ‘I’m sweeter than the rice cake’ on her Birthday cake remix with Chris Brown. And it’s also widely believed that Karrueche was responding to Rihanna when she Tweeted she was ‘Ray Charles’ to the bullshit shortly after the remix dropped.


    Rihanna has taken the battle to another level. Hehehehehe. Continue reading…

    Last night, Rihanna Tweeted the ‘I’mma make you my bitch’ line from the Birthday Cake remix, accompanied by a photo of a bag of rice cakes wearing Ray Charles sunglasses

    Then she commented on how the cakes were dry. Ouch! This Rihanna sef…lol

  50. jen says:

    I’m confused by your use of the word ‘Asian’. Every time someone uses it, it seems they invariably mean ‘Mongoloid Asian’, that is, someone with the features of the mongols. Yet everyone is afraid to call it what it is. It seems most people feel those features are inferior to other features and are terrified to reveal any bias they have on the issue. They get around it by calling all Mongoloid Asians just ‘Asians’.
    Asia is the largest continent and has the widest variety of human features. India and Russia are in Asia and their indigenous people look completely different from the Mongoloid Asians.

    • MizzVJJ says:

      No, you’re not confused. You are just being a pain in the butt. You know what kind of ‘Asian’ this story is referring too. I think people are aware that it can refer to all types from the Asian continent. But who the hell is gonna refer to it as ‘Mongoloid Asian’??

  51. Lady_Luck says:

    This is an obvious racial slur against vietnamese/oriental people. The bigger question here is why is Rhianna seemingly immune to the general war-cry/witch-hunts that erupts whenever a high profile white person utters a racial comment??

    Shouldn’t by 2012 we be wanting to weed out such double standards??

  52. Lmao says:

    the rice cake picture kinda looks like rihanna (first picture)

  53. cannonball says:

    According to Ri’s song,(s) she likes it just the way Chris gave it to her!. So why did she prosecute her boyfriend?. Did she forget the secret password?

  54. Bella says:

    If you turn the photo upside down, it does look Asian.

  55. ry says:

    This kind of behavior only makes us black women and light-skinned women look worse. Because you know how (racist and colorist) people will see one person doing these things and assume the whole group does it.
