Rihanna Gets Fab For Her Afterparty, Clarifies Her New Tattoo

​ ​ ​ ​

Rihanna performed in NYC at Madison Square Garden last night for her "Last Girl on Earth" tour.  Then she stepped out looking fab for her big afterparty at Greenhouse. 

 

More pics of Rihanna out on the town and a few concert stills, plus she clears up the meaning of her new tattoo when you read on...

Rihanna stepped out of her hotel looking interesting in a black sheer and lace dress, with a gold chain and her fave pair of basic black Louboutin pumps.

Rih stops to talk to a fan.  Isn't that the same little girl who tried to stop Usher and Chris Paul earlier this week?  Funny.

She's looking pretty cute strolling down the streets of NYC.

And here are some pics from her concert with Ke$ha:

Wonder how it sounded...

In other Rihanna news, her tattoo has caused quite a stir. 

 

Her tattoo reads "Rebelle Fleur" which many people have said is incorrect phrasing because the adjective comes before the noun in the French language.  However, Ms. Fenty cleared that up in a text sent to her tattoo artist Keith "Bang Bang" McCurdy.

She wrote:

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.

Looks like Rihanna may be more well versed in French than people think...

If that is what her tatoo

If that is what her tatoo means to her then let her be. She got an imprint first so she had time to check for grammar. Obviously there is a meaning behind all this, maybe it is a play on the phrase "Belle Fleur". Either way yall care too much. I just wnat her too stop wit the tatoos, she is too pretty.

Two words. GOOGLE TRANSLATE.

Two words. GOOGLE TRANSLATE. Two more words. SHE'S WRONG. French people from FRANCE say she's wrong, Google Translate says she's wrong... I don't know who else but Jesus can put a period on this.

She's trying to use what

She's trying to use what linguists call a noun adjunct, where a noun becomes an adjective — kind of like if she wrote "peace flower" or "Valentine's Day flower." "Valentine's Day" and "peace" are nouns, but in English, just about any singular noun may act as an adjective when put in front of another noun. The confusion about the tattoo is magnified by the fact that "rebelle," like many adjectives in French, is also a noun. Unfortunately for her, the French do not just stick adjuncts in front of their nouns, so she's wrong even if she plugs it into Google Translate and gets something that makes sense to her.

That is the same little girl!

That is the same little girl! Isn't it past her bedtime? I don't see the big deal about the tattoo. Two nouns can follow each other. Besides if she had reversed the two words, it still wouldn't say rebel flower, which is what she wanted. She would still have to use rebelle fleur. Fleur rebelle could never translate to rebel flower. It's not a big deal.

He's dead wrong on this

He's dead wrong on this translation. It's Fleur Rebelle, whether she means "rebel flower" or "rebellious flower". The way she has it on her neck reads "Flower Rebel" which makes no sense. It's all backwards.

Who gives a shit what it

Who gives a shit what it means. She wants to call herself a Rebel Flower then who gives a shit, maybe thats what she wanted? Maybe she is the only one that has to wear it? I mean give her a break. As much as Black Americans fuck up the English Language? LMBO WHO ARE YOU TO TALK?

Do you mean "fuck up the English language" like you just did with numerous errors in punctuation, a run-on (the first question) and capitalizing "language" when it doesn't require it? Who are YOU to talk?
n_satiable's picture

you can't have two nouns

you can't have two nouns together all willy nilly. unless they are proper nouns. so if her new name or nickname is rebel flower then it's cool. if it's just to words stuck together then it doesn't make sense with them functioning as nouns. one of them has to function as an adjective if it is not a proper noun in order for it to makesense in english. french people have already spoken and said the ish was wrong. seems like her and her tattoo artist could have taken 5 seconds to research this before they did it. now she is stuck with this. oh well she can put another @ss backwards "never a failure always a lesson" tat right under this one.

@Anonymous 11:47 am Aug 13th,

@Anonymous 11:47 am Aug 13th, *10 -- Who cares 'bout the translation of "a black SKIRT ...!!" That wasn't the point of Cat P's post, Tasha's post, nor mine: THE TATOO IS W-R-O-N-G ...!!! But you ALREADY knew this, you even made-said mention. So, you've NOW "revealed yourself," to be little-more-than, a Rihanna fan/supporter who is very-much embarrassed for her! And even NOW, Rihanna doesn't have enough respect for the French people, to make an apology and correct the tattoo! The French are SERIOUS 'bout THEIR culture! ... No, she arrogantly announces some lame-azz explanation, and continues her "sorry-azz excuse, of a career": lying, using, deceiving; all-in-the-name of furthering that "farce and charade" known as 'Brand-Rihanna' ..!! X,Y,"and Z" -- OUT ...!!!

I don't care ANYTHING AT ALL about Rihanna, the girl is definitely not a great singer, but that Cat P person is a complete idiot, calling people dumb when she can't write 3 French words herself without making 2 mistakes in them + not knowing what they mean, yet claiming she is fluent... Pathetic...

Don't u mean ''une jupe

Don't u mean ''une jupe noire'' since ''jupe' is a feminine noun the adjective ''noir' will have an extra ''e'' french for u lol and it will be translated as '' black skirt' not dress black. People really should stop sweating over this maybe the way she wrote it means something to her and she's the only person wearing that tattoo. Rebel in french as a noun can be spell rebel for male and rebelle for female

I think she made it clear

I think she made it clear that it is not rebellious and that is is REBEL. Therefore your argument is invalid.

@ CAT P Why are you so

@ CAT P Why are you so worried about Rihanna and HER Tattoo. Please take your attitude and comment elsewhere we are not interested in your views. Rihanna is giving the meaning of her Tattoo. It's personal to HER. This is not English Class. We are fully aware that adjectives usually follow the noun in French. This is a different case as Rihanna is explaining. Now move along and worry about something that is important now what Tattoo Rihanna has. Do you hear yourself?????
FURIOUS STYLES's picture

Are we reading the same

Are we reading the same post????Unless I am mistaken she is stating that Rebelle Fluer translation is rebel flower NOT rebellious flower and since these two words are nouns then there is no reason to place the fleur at the beginning of the phrasing. Congrats though on your ability to speak more than one language that's admirable.

STFU! You are such a dumbass!

STFU! You are such a dumbass! Damn, just admit that she is stupid and so are you for thinking she isn't trying to defend her! Even if it is rebel (a noun) instead of rebellious, fleur still proceeds rebelle to mean rebel flower! It is NOT a proper noun therefore it does not mean the same thing, you fucking idiot!

i love rihanna but that still

i love rihanna but that still doesn't make sense . and rebelle fleur actually makes some sense , that's not how you would usually say it , because in French and for that particuliar case you would put the adjective before the noun . yes you can say une rebelle ( a rebel) and une fleur (a flower) but together , rebelle becomes an adjective

So what would you have

So what would you have tattoed on YOUR neck."Rebellious flower" or "Rebel flower". We can all put words together, we only communicate something when they are put together in a way that makes sense. Tattoos especially are suppose to convey a message in as little words as possible...right now, her tattoo says NOTHING. Im not hating, im just speaking the truth
