Chris Brown, health scares, racy stripper photos, topless shots, beefs with other superstars—these are the hallmarks of Rihanna’s tweets, and here’s a rundown of some of her Twitter highlights.

Chris Brown

In May, news broke that Rihanna had un-followed Chris Brown—the ex-boyfriend who notoriously beat her up on the even of the 2009 Grammys—following a dis from Breezy in a remix of Kanye West’s “Way Too Cold.” If things are chilly now, they weren’t always that way. Rihanna has used Twitter to fan the flames of her on-again, off-again relationship with Brown, tweeting things like, “”I’ll always love u #1LOVE.” She’s also made fun of his new girlfriend Karrueche Tran, tweeting pictures of a box of rice cakes—a reference to Tran’s Vietnamese heritage?—dressed in hoop earrings and sunglasses.

Drugs and Health Scares

Rihanna has tweeted pictures of herself with IVs in her arm—once in October 2011 and again in May 2012—and in April 2012, she posted photos of herself on a bodyguard’s shoulders at the Coachella festival, smoking what appears to be marijuana. Other photos revealed a mass of white powder on the security guard’s head, leading to speculation Rihanna was using cocaine. “I’m crazy, and I don’t pretend to be anything else,” she tweeted. At least she’s honest.

Rihanna has had Twitter beef with Karrueche Tran, R&B singer Ciara, racist Dutch magazine editors, and even fans, who she’s accused of misreading her tweets and jumping to conclusions.

Some say Rihanna should do more singing, less tweeting, but it would make the world a far less interesting place.
