Pop superstar Rihanna may be unabashed about her marijuana use, but she apparently does not like being associated with harder drugs. The "We Found Love" singer faced accusations of smoking cocaine after she tweeted a picture of herself rolling a cigarette that appeared to be drug-laced at the Coachella music festival in April. Now, she is emphatically putting those rumors to rest in a new interview with Vogue magazine. “They knew what it was,” she says about the Coachella pictures. “They knew it was marijuana. It was completely clear to them.” Rihanna went on to deny ever using the hard stuff. “I don’t do cocaine. I don’t like being associated with anything that’s untrue,” she says. Even with the constant controversy surrounding the singer’s habits, her manager believes in this case, no press is bad press. “It’s the rawest form of freedom of expression, right?” says manager Jay Brown. “She has the right to express herself, and I know she’s being playful. I know when she’s being serious and when she’s just having fun.”
