You'll Never Trust Rihanna Again After This Latest Star Wars-themed Incident

Oh Ri, things were going so well.
Something truly terrible has happened and it involves Rihanna, a skirt and the force.
It's universally accepted that Rihanna has unfaltering taste when it comes to, well, everything. Everything from her tattoos, her outfits, her vacations locations, her music, her videos and her art direction drips style, elegance and an eye that knows what 'pops'.
Like many people, I began to doubt Rihanna when it took three years (!) for the singer to release her latest album ANTi. And, like a lot of people. I was pleasantly surprised when the album was actually very, very good. Yes it was a departure from the club bangers and radio bops of yesteryear, but there are some seriously good songs on there (we're particularly fond of "Kiss It Better" and "Never Ending", wbu?).
I was ready to forgive Rihanna for everything. I was, in fact, rallying Rihanna. That was until I saw this picture...
Of course Rihanna looks FLAWLESS here, as she always does. Her new hair is on point, that jacket and t-shirt combo are serving casual realness and let's also take a minute to look at her amaze lipstick. Just wonderful. I'd go as far to say that this outfit is almost perfect. I'd nearly say that, in this outfit, I trust Rihanna. I'd let her into my home to watch Netflix. Maybe I'd even make her some pasta.
Yet these are nearlys and almosts, because there's one fundamental problem with this outfit and it involves Rihanna's skirt. Let's take a closer look, shall we?
Rihanna is wearing a skirt with the poster for Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace on it and that is just NOT OK.
Firstly, Rihanna's skirt depicts one of the biggest crimes in modern cinema history, an attempt to destroy one of the best loved franchises of all time.
Secondly, JAR JAR BINKS IS ON THIS SKIRT. Jar Jar is not only the worst character ever written into anything ever, but he and the 'Gungans' definitely err on the side of problematic.
Seriously, RiRi, what are you thinking?
Now, we know that people make mistakes, especially when it comes to terrible science fiction prequels. So here's an idea: why don't you come over and we'll watch the the 'machete' edition of the prequels, the original and The Force Awakens when it comes out on DVD. We can school you on the ways of the force.
