Rihanna Hits Back at Criticizing Journalist Who Called Her a Terrible Role Model
Rihanna has hit back at a British journalist who branded her a terrible role model for kids. The journalist in question, Liz Jones, wrote that Riri has the kind of style that “invites rape.” While she also goes on to say: “I wish she’d stop infecting our High Streets with her gun tattoos, her false nails and fake hair, her bogus bad-ass shenanigans.”
Liz has one thing correct: Rihanna does blatantly smoke weed and shows off her joints on Instagram, dresses however she wants and her behavior is extremely out in the open – but, why shouldn’t she? Does Liz want Rihanna to censor her own life just because kids love her music? Why should Rihanna have to conceal her own personality for the sake of the public? She is simply herself and being that freely. The singer, keen to get this point across, wrote back to Liz with the following rant:
LOL!!!! My money got a bad habit of p-ssing people off!! If you sincerely wanna help little girls more than their own parents do, here’s a toxic tip: don’t be amateur with your articles, you sound bitter! What’s all this about hair and nails and costumes and tattoos?? …. That sh-t ain’t clever!!! That sh-t ain’t journalism! That’s a sad sloppy menopausal mess!!! Nobody over here acts like they’re perfect! I don’t pretend that I’m like you, i just live… My life!! And I don’t know why y’all still act so surprised by any of it!! “Role Model” is not a position or title that I have ever campaigned for, so chill wit dat! I got my own f—ed up sh-t to work on, I’ll never portray that as perfect, but for right now it’s ME!! Call it what ya want!! Toxic was cute, Poisonous Pop Princess had a nice ring to it, just a lil wordy! And P.S. my first American Vogue cover was in 2011…APRIL!!! #ElizabethAnnJones
Make no apologies, this girl knows how to be herself – that is one positive thing kids can learn from her, even if not everything she does it kiddie appropriate or sensible.
