Recipe Box: Rihanna’s Guacamole of a Life

23 Mar

Perez Hilton reports: Rihanna’s concert in Winnipeg was delayed over 90 minutes because of an inspection conducted by border patrol. Her buses were pulled over and kept for further examination. It is believed that border patrol is to be blamed for making her fans wait…

Image           But this isn’t Rihanna’s first tardy performance. Last week she bummed out tons of fans when she appeared 4 hours late to a school charity performance. Was border patrol really to blame for this late arrival? Or is it something else? …Bad Gal RiRi has had a lot of stresses lately. She has been the talk of the town ever since she returned to the tatted arms of Chris Brown. And then she released her album, Unapologetic. Not to mention the hodge podge of touring events, photoshoots, and press interviews that she has had lately. You mix all those ingredients together and you get something beautiful… Rihanna’s Guacamole of a Life. (VIEW DETAILED RECIPE BELOW)

Image           Rihanna’s Guacamole of a Life: This recipe was inspired one late night after ransacking my fridge for a midnight snack. I thought to myself “…hmmm garlic sounds good with avocados, why not add garlic powder as well.” I just poured, chopped and mixed. As I dunked my blue corn tortilla chips into the melting pot of ingredients I used to make guacamole, I thought the stresses in my life. And as I usually do, I began to compare my life to my current celebrity crush Rihanna. I thought if I felt stressed, I could only imagine what she was going through. I thought about how much she had changed in the last few years. What she had been through… how much she had grown… What her daily schedule is like now. And I came to the conclusion that everyone has something to say about some aspect of her life (i.e. her relationship, her body, her music, her instagram) but rarely do people look Rihanna’s life as a whole. All in all, it’s a pretty amazing life! She has won numerous awards, makes great pop music, and is able to live out the love life she always wanted… There are so many different flavors in her life, sour moments, creamy moments, and the moments that leave you with a bite! As I scraped my bowl for the last remnants of guacamole I knew a recipe was born. I created a guacamole recipe that took a little bit of everything I could find & combined them to create one amazing recipe of Rihanna’s Guacamole of a Life.
