Rihanna beats Tweet retreat

Pop star Rihanna is more known for provocative attire than politics. But she stumbled into hot water this week after a tweet went out from her official site which read #freepalestine.

A source denied this revealed the singer's Mid-East sympathies and said she had accidentally sent out the hashtag after reading about the latest conflict. The tweet was removed shortly after its appearance.
