A Woman Got Herpes From Rihanna’s Lipstick

A 28-year old woman from Harlem is reportedly suing MAC Cosmetics because she claims that she contracted herpes from using a sample tube of RiRi Woo lipstick at Rihanna's show at the Barclays Center in New York City earlier this month. Because Rihanna endorses the lipstick, promotional booths were set up for her fans at the shows, and Starkeema Greenridge claims that the rep working the booth that she visited knowingly gave her a tube of lipstick that had already been used and that's how she got herpes.

Greenridge is suing MAC for an unspecified amount for "mental anguish and emotional distress", according to the New York Daily News, as she claims she couldn't work for two weeks because of the oral disease. And she'll probably win her lawsuit and then blow all of the money on something stupid, because she's the kind of person who buys lipstick from a booth at a concert.
