Rihanna Builds Shrine to Bob Marley

Monday, November 8, 2010

RihannaRIHANNA has built a shrine to Bob Marley.

The Only Girl In The World hitmaker has filled a huge room in her new Los Angeles mansion with memorabilia, a giant painting of the legendary Jamaican singer, gun-shaped chandeliers and a bar where she can go and relax.

“The Bob Marley room is my loungey room, so there’s incense burning, there’s a painting on the wall of Bob Marley in black and white, which I love,” Rihanna said.

“The rest of the room goes from green into yellow into red, like the Jamaican flag.

“There’s a little coffee table and these seats that are like big pillows on the floor, so it’s not formal at all. There are lots of Bob Marley books, lyric books. He’s one of my favourite artists of all time – he really paved the way for every other artist out of the Caribbean.”

The 22-year-old beauty also admitted she always listens to her own opinions, regardless of what other people think and refuses to let anyone tell her what to do.

“I think people are afraid to have fun, they’re afraid of what people think of them, that fear hinders them from being who they really are and expressing themselves the way they really want to,” she said.

“Not everyone is going to love your hair red, but if you want to dye your hair red just do it because you want to, you can do whatever you want. You are a rock star.

“At the end of the day, who the f**k am I living for? It’s me, 30 years from now I want to look back and say I really enjoyed it, and lived it to the fullest of my expectations, not like a puppet.”

      Thank you – no wonder some people have an aversion to others/outsiders representing their culture because they will massacre the history as if they have an authority – this could not be a slip of the tongue because our small island is huge within all countries of the world.

    Jamaican flag huh? Sorry sista you are missing the whole point of the colors. Red gold and green are the colors of the flag of Ethiopia. The holy land to Rastafari.

      Silly Reading is fundamental – she said the Jamaican Flag – there was no fib or slip of the tongue – if you are going to represent Jamaica as an outsider – you must know at least that – the colors of our flag is green, gold and black – that was not a slip of her tongue – or maybe – did you hear her say anything about Ethiopia – NO – she said Jamaica and she was representing the Caribbean and the country where Bob Marley came from – stop drinking her Kool Aid and realize when she makes an error and to blast her for it. This was a lousy interview and it’s obvious the reporter was trying to embarrass her by putting the information up like that as she said it.

      First of all – she is not a Jamaican – she is from Barbados – get it right next time. If she was from Jamaica – she would have known that the Jamaican flag color is green, gold and black.
