Rihanna Moving Into House with 12 Bedrooms

For most of us in our early 20s, being single means living in crappy apartments with roommates and feeling lucky if your bedroom has windows. For Rihanna, who is only 23, it means moving into an enormous 12-bedroom house “high above the hills of L.A.” It’s easy to get judgmental and think: Isn’t that kind of out there, for a person living alone? Even 3 or 4 bedrooms would be a little much. But who knows what we would really do with Rihanna’s money! Rich people tend to lose their minds. I would probably have a room just for my shoes, if I was Rihanna.

As she told Vogue, whose April cover she is gracing, “It is all white. There is a gun chandelier in the middle of the living room. In one room, I have this huge black-and-white painting of Bob Marley, and the wallpaper is green, yellow, and red, the African-flag colors.” The gun chandelier sounds cool and Gaga-esque — not sure how I feel about the green, yellow and red wallpaper, especially if the rest of the house is all white.

Maybe I’m wrong, but I feel like even a year ago, celebrities were sort of shying away from super-ostentatious displays of wealth in keeping with the tone of the recession. It was a move away from Cribs-style excess and towards a slightly more Mark Zuckerbergian version of how to be famous (despite his extreme wealth, he lives in a modest house and still dresses like a nerdy college sophomore). None of them really changed, but it became less cool to talk about all the awesome things you could do with your money.

Now, it seems as though they’re just giving up on the whole humility charade. Oh well. Hopefully Cribs will do an episode on Ri-Ri’s mansion soon so we can see what she’s doing with all those bedrooms.
