The fighting words were initially provoked by Sheen, who criticized the Pop Goddess in a TwitLonger post this morning. According to reports, Sheen was dining at a Santa Monica restaurant with his porn star fiancé last night when he noticed that Rihanna was enjoying dinner with a friend in the same restaurant.
Believing that other celebrities are subject to obey his every request, Sheen reportedly “sent a request to Rihanna’s table,” inviting her to an impromptu meet-and-greet at his table because it was his fiancé’s birthday.
Rihanna reportedly declined because the restaurant was not a suitable meeting place due to the number of paparazzi hanging around outside, and also probably because Charlie Sheen is awful and it’s not Rihanna’s responsibility to kneel at his feet.
“Nice impression you left behind, Bday or not,” Sheen writes. “Sorry we’re not KOOL enough to warrant a blessing from the Princess. (or in this case the Village idiot)”. The letter begins with an admission that he “couldn’t pick [Rihanna] out of a line-up at gunpoint” and classified meeting her as an opportune time to “chug Draino [sic]” and think “please kill me now.”
you see THIS is the reason that I ALWAYS take the time. THIS is why I’m in this thing 31 awesome years. Good will and common courtesy, carefully established over time to exist radically in concert with a code of gratitude!
Oh yeah, look how far that got you, Charlie!
oh and Riahnna, Halloween isn’t for a while. but good on you for testing out your costume in public. it’s close; a more muted pink might be the answer, as in: none.
See ya on the way down, (we always do) and actually, it was a pleasure NOT meeting you. clearly we have NOTHING in common when it comes to respect for those who’ve gone before you. I’m guessing you needed those precious 84 seconds to situate that bad wig before you left the restaurant.
Rihanna can obviously not be bothered by this nonsense. She responded with two brilliant tweets this afternoon:
The Queen reigns.
