Rihanna to Nicole Richie — YOU MAKE ME WANNA PUKE (and That’s a Good Thing)

Hows this for flattery — Rihanna just tweeted a pic of Nicole Richie with a caption that reads, “This bitch makes me throw up” … and she meant it AS A COMPLIMENT!

RiRi was commenting on a recent pic of Richie sporting a short grey hairdo (see below) — taken at the Met Gala, where the theme was “punk.”

So how does the vomit comment translate to a compliment Turns out, Rihanna meant the outfit was “sick” — in a good way — and she even included the hashtag, “#bestdressed.”

So there ya have it … next time someone says you make them feel queasy — just say “thanks.”
