I bet you’re wondering what Rihanna, Eminem, andÂ Teen Mom 2‘s Jenelle Evans could possibly have in common, and no, the answer does not include a sing-song round of “One Of These Things Is Not Like The Other, One Of These Things Just Doesn’t Belong”. Â Okay, yes it does. Â But theÂ other thing they have in common? Â Rihanna is actually using Jenelle Evans to promote her upcoming tour with Eminem.
Yes, that Jenelle Evans. Â Don’t lie, you totally watch her on MTV, and Jenelle and her mother Barbara are the main reason you do. Â Sure, she’s an awful mother who has most likely already irrevocably effed up her four-year-old son due to being in a haze of abusive relationships, narcotics, and the highest level of denial ever achieved in human history (second only to Justin Bieber). Â But hey, she’s entertaining! Â And pregnant again, but that’s an entirely separate issue altogether. Â So what’s the connection between her and Rihanna? Â I think this clip from badgirlriri’s Instagram can explain it better than I:
I hate myself for dying over this. Â I really do. Â But if you’ve seen the episode ofÂ Teen Mom where Jenelle is more serious than a heart attack over the fact that she couldn’t possibly serve jail time BECAUSE KE$HA AND FEATHERS, then I know I’m in good company.
While I’m not exactly a huge fan of Rihanna or Jenelle, I kind of want to get a slow clap going over the brilliant marketing campaign here. Â Apparently I’m not alone in my incredulity:
badgalriri’s video – dude Rihanna actually noticed me lol http://t.co/rVmda2RHxn
