Don't write anything smart about Rihanna, especially when it comes to using the words "role model."
Angered by a Daily Mail article published by Liz Jones earlier this week, Rihanna took to Instagram Wednesday, posting some harsh words about why she's not a role model, didn't ask to be one and how she has her own sh** to worry about.
"My money got a bad habit of pissing 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**ked up sh*t to work on, I’ll never portray that as perfect, but for right now it’s ME!!" Rihanna fired off.
As can be viewed on The Daily Mail, the article's title was "Pop’s poisonous princess: Glorying in drugs, guns and sleaze, Rihanna’s toxic role model for her army of young fans," a clear dig at Rihanna's "bad girl" image.
Nonetheless, Rihanna thought part of it was cute.
"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," Rihanna added.
Thoughts? Should Rihanna be as pressed as she is about "role model"?
