At last night's Grammy Awards, Rihanna paired her arguably unacceptable Alaïa gown with diamonds — including a ring on the fourth finger of her left hand. BuzzFeed asked: "Is Rihanna Engaged?" The Daily News wrote: "Rihanna snuggles with Chris Brown; ring sparks engagement rumors." MSN offered: "RiRi's Grammys ring might mean she's engaged — or that she likes rings." Meanwhile, tweeters sent their congratulations or utter disgust into the ether. But today, E! explains Neil Lane generously lent Rihanna $2 million worth of jewelry to complete her look, including "20-carat platinum and diamond drop earrings, a platinum and diamond serpentine bracelet, and platinum and diamond rings."

One was the purported engagement ring.

It is strange, however, that upon changing her outfit to perform, she replaced her engagement-finger ring with another engagement-finger ring.

But, for now, we concur with E!: Rihanna isn't engaged (yet). She's been catching so much flak lately for dating Chris Brown, so she's probably going to wait a few months before doing something entirely drastic — just enough time for her restock on fucks to give before everyone jumps all over her again.
