It’s too bad we already crowned our Song of the Summer, as Rihanna is just now offering what could have been a highly viable contender. The VMA nominee mentioned via Twitter that her next single will be “Cheers (Drink To That)”, which samples Avril Lavigne’s 2002 single “I’m With You”. We can definitely raise our glass of Vita Coco for RiRi’s sixth (sixth!) Loud single. And, not surprising at all, the “Man Down” singer can’t drop a single without just a teeny bit of controversy.
“Uhm, RiRi. Just heard #Cheers on the radio (yay!), but they made inaudible the word ‘bastards’,” wrote Hilton. “Since when is that offensive? Grrr!”
RiRi’s reply: “WtF???? Ugh, hate that!”
We hate that, too. We can’t remember anything being censored when Fat Bastard was a main character in the child-friendly Austin Powers franchise. Anyway, Rihanna, don’t let those bastards get you down!
