Some French speakers think that RiRi’s “Rebelle Fleur” neck tattoo really read “Le Dumb Ass” because they say it is grammatically incorrect. They say that in French the adjective always shows up before the noun, so her neck tattoo should say “Fleur Rebelle” instead. But according to OK! Magazine, RiRi thinks she’s right and knew before she got the tattoo that bitches would jump on her ass for it.
RiRi allegedly wrote her tattoo artiste the following text message before she came into his shop to get tapped with a needle: “rebelle fleur translates to rebel flower, NOT rebelious flower, its 2 nouns so in that case fleur does not HAVE to be first! Fyi, cuz they will ask”.
All the French I know I learned from Pepe Le Pew, so I’m not the one to comment on whether RiRi’s shit is right or wrong. And honestly, I’m more concerned that somewhere in the world there’s a sad Emo clown with a cold head.
Here’s Flower Rebellious or Rebel Flower (or WHATEVER) struttin’ into a club in NYC last night after performing at MSG.
