Rihanna doesn't mess around.

After MTV tweeted a link to a story about how her "marijuana photos from Coachella sparked controversy," the 24-year-old singer took only 12 minutes to respond via the social networking site.

"Yikes. . . I ran out of f-cks to give," Rihanna wrote. Though MTV deleted its original tweet, the network sent the singer another one shortly after: "Well played."

Whether she cares or not, Rihanna's fans were surprised to see her upload Instagram photos that feature her sitting on top of a bald bodyguard's head, rolling what appears to be a cigar leaf full of marijuana.

Last October, Rihanna admitted she struggles with being in the public eye. "People -- especially white people -- they want me to be a role model just because of the life I lead," she told British Vogue. "The things I say in my songs, they expect it of me and [being a role model] became more of my job than I wanted it to be."
