blink-182 drummer (and plane crash survivor) Travis Barker can now add "musical educator" to his resume. The heavily inked skinsman is currently tutoring pop diva Rihanna, giving her private music lessons. Apparently, she's a great student, too.
Earlier this week, Barker tweeted, "Teaching Rihanna some things on drums." He also posted a a photo of the pair at a rehearsal space in L.A, saying, "She jams. Watch out for her!" Is Barker getting paid per tweet?
Sources say that Rihanna, who appears behind the kit in the video for her single "Rude Boy," wanted to learn how to play so she can perform live on her upcoming European and U.K. tours. How noble of her!
Should pop stars stick to singing and dancing and leaving the instrument playing to a trained and seasoned professional? Does this up Ri's cred?
