Rihanna's Continental Irony

3/14/2008 3:43 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

RihannaDuring a recent radio interview in Stockholm, urban diva Rihanna made it clear why she sticks to singing and not commenting on foreign policy -- and an umbrella doesn't cover up this one!

According to a Nordic TMZ source, the sultry songstress claims to love South American** and Thai food, but "doesn't like Mexican or Asian food."

Clearly Rihanna- anna- anna thrived more in her music classes than geography. Shut up and eat!

**Clearly we are aware that Mexico is not in South America.

Her turds probably smell horrificly bad. Just by looking at her you can tell she is one of those girls who poops and farts a lot.

Wake Up    

Hey TMZ......I see you have added the asterisk with your "clearly" statement, but we're not buying it. When choosing what to include in the Rihanna quote, if you were so aware that Mexico was not part of South America, you wouldn't have included that part of the statement in what you quoted. You would have simply printed that she said she "loves...Thai food" but "doesn't like...Asian food."

And to the idiot who said we all need a grammar lesson........you must work for TMZ as you are the only person so far to put forth that opinion, and it doesn't have anything to do with grammar anyway.

Ok, yes the Thai/Asian thing was stupid, but TMZ, YOU wrote that she likes South American but not Mexican, therefore drawing a parallel between the two as you did with Asia, then you add on after the fact that you KNOW that Mexico is not part of South America . . . well then Einsteins why did you make a link between the other two with YOUR article. Kind of a silly, non necessary post if you ask me. OR you are just doing a lot of back peddling because on of your paps who got promoted to writer didn't know and now you are trying to make your readers look silly and save face.

Just a trash story that ended up making you guys kinda look silly.

Thai food is one type of Asian food and it is fairly unique. So it isn't too far fetched that she was generalizing about not liking most Asian foods and excepting Thai food. As for Mexican food, see above comment.

22. Hey, LindsayC -- maybe you'll do better when you reach third grade! (Second grade is SO hard, huh?) Mexico is NOT part of North America, genius.. It's Central America. So Rihanna is correct is implying that Mexican is not South American. As for the Thai comment...well...not so smart there...

When did Central America become a continent?

The United States of America, was originially drawn by a French Map Maker named (Americanas), and named it as such. During the attempt to convert the English system to Metric, the Military designated the Area of Mexico, to Panama as Central, or Middle America, to simplify it for ease of clarity and Maps were remade around that premise. It has since been (as the metric system) faded away. Some People are influenced by this and find it Personal, or make them Feel more At Ease. It is part of History. Both are correct, but at different periods of time. I don't expect anyone to change their beliefs. Thank you for Understanding.

Someone to school you    

First of all, If she's referring to South American food, there is NOTHING wrong with her saying she does not like Mexican food. Mexico is NOT in South America. If TMZ did their homework, they would know that in South America there are OTHER Hispanic countries which DO NOT include Mexico. As far as her saying "Asian" food is not Thai food. Well............ You can't have beauty and brains! Again, I'm from Argentina and we do NOT like to be compared to the LOW CLASS that we call Mexicans!

Thanks!
