IMAGINE JOHN GILES was a 26-year-old Caribbean songstress who enjoyed a tweet now and then. Throw in Eamon Dunpny’s potty mouth and you’ve basically got Rihanna.
The superstar Good Girl Gone Bad has easily dominated the in-game Twittersphere during this year’s World Cup.
No wonder, because some of her insights and analysis were ‘disrespectfully’ good.
Here’s a quick (‘Pon de) replay of Brazil 2014; Rihanna’s World Cup.
RiRi missed the opening ceremony, but the less said about Pitbull the better
By the first Sunday she was all over it – babysitting or no babysitting
For some incidents she reacted the same as the rest of us normal people
For others she was in a minority
‘Doe’, as right
England v Uruguay was probably the peak of her analytical powers
Even Rihanna couldn’t see Costa Rica’s win over Italy coming
Thoughts on Leo Messi?
You heard the superstar, Germany!
Harsh on Neuer
But she can’t stay mad at Germany for long
The Barbadian must have a thing for Group G, because it was World Cup silence from her until Portugal faced Ghana
Five whole World Cup days without a mention from Rihanna. Torture.
On to the knockout stages then, but that Brazil-Chile shoot-out was too tense for more than single word reactions
The star of the show finally caught her eye later that night
A baby capable of MURDAAAHHH!
As the tournament rolls on, it seems like the Dutch have her unwavering support
Though she’s also rowed in behind Brazil, Belgium and Belgium’s last 16 opposition
We all shed a tear for James, RiRi. We all did.
