You’re probably thinking…‘what now?’
Well let’s just say if you intend on crossing the Bajan songstress, be prepared for the ramifications.
Elisabeth Jones; a journalist for the Mail Online yesterday posted an article which illustrated Ms Fenty as being a ‘toxic… poisonous princess..’ who ‘glorified guns…tattoos and sleaze’.
Jones then went further to divulge into her relationship with Chris Brown; stating her opinion (as everyone does) about how badly that was handled.
We’re sure that Rihanna is not to everyone’s liking however reading the full article here at NL PR Fashion; we felt the article was more the ramblings of a disgruntled parent. The execution of her argument was far from the writings of professional journalist.
With this we feel that simply she should have known better!
“I wish she’d stop infecting our High Streets with her gun tattoos, her false nails and fake hair, her bogus bad-ass shenanigans that try to portray her as ‘real’, as ‘street’, as her own person, as strong and single-minded”.
Whether you feel she is fake or not this isn't constructive journalism however everyone is entitled to their opinion…we guess?
Well of course you know Bad Gal Ri RI was not going to take this lying down.
Rihanna swayed over to Instagram to launch a mini assault back at Jones.
LOL!!!! 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-cked 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
Rihanna has made it very apparent that she does not deem herself a role model and has never put herself in that category (that in self another topic) and that she is simply living her life.
Whilst we understand this to an extent, regardless of wanting to be in that category or not, as a FEMALE celebrity, little girls will watch and admire and somewhat imitate.
Jones had valid points but the structure and emphasis seemed to be completely left on Rhianna 'To know better’.
We believe she should but we also believe that parents should instil such morals into their children to know the difference and to know how to conduct themselves.
