Does Rihanna Need to Learn From Whitney Houston's Life Choices?

Rihanna CoachellaRihanna, your mom must be thrilled. Over the weekend, the sultry singer posted a photo from her adventures at Coachella, one in which she's cutting up what appeared to be white powder sprinkled on the bald head of a guy whose shoulders she was sitting on. Obviously, this touched off a lot of speculation about what substance this white powder could be. Let’s assume, for the sake of argument, that it’s not dandruff.

As we all know, Whitney Houston’s death was attributed to a combination of longtime drug usage and heart disease. There was white powder found in Houston’s hotel room at the time of her death. And it definitely wasn't dandruff.


Also, Rihanna has been photographed smoking marijuana. And Whitney Houston went on record when she was alive saying that she regularly smoked pot with her then-husband, Bobby Brown. She was even arrested for it. Similarities are piling up, no?

Speaking of Bobby Brown, he wasn't exactly the epitome of a good husband. Houston accused him of not only cheating on her repeatedly but, you know, abusing her. Abusing her, Rihanna. Punching her. Ring a bell?

But there's more. Bobby Brown. Chris Brown. Hello? Same last name.

Now, I'm not saying that RiRi is going to end up like Whitney Houston. RiRi loves to play up her bad girl image and, if you ask me, the duet with the guy who beat her, former boyfriend Chris Brown, as well as the recent Coachella photos were probably nothing more than an attempt to continue to hone that baaaaad gurl image. In fact, after the white powder photo surfaced, Riri Tweeted, "I'm crazy, and I don't pretend to be anything else."

Houston, on the other hand, was known as a "good girl," though she chafed at the idea and always claimed it wasn't really her, but simply a public relations mirage.

Still, let's be on the safe side, shall we? RiRi, take a good look in the mirror and ask yourself, Do I really want to go here?

Think Rihanna's latest pics are something to worry about?
