Elizabeth Ann Jones, Daily Mail Editor wrote this about Rihanna:The first time I met Rihanna the pop Princess was seated next to vogue editor Anna Wintour, wearing a demure dress with her hair as ringlets for all the world as thoough she was Shelly Temple. She sipped at he flute of champagne throughout dinner and clearl had one thing in mind appearing on the cover of American Vogue ( she got it, too, in November last year) and possibly a high-end fashion advertising of the kind that Ms Wintour can facilitate.
The second encounter I had with Her was during London Fashion Week last February Rihanna came down the catwalk at the end of her presentation of her first collection for teen label River Island, for which she was reportedly paid $800,000.
She looked pretty, she wasn't exposing any under-boob, she certainly was pretending to ram a jewelled microphone into her nether regions as she has been doing on stage of late.
Her teenage fans queued around the block that night to catch a glimpse of their idol who has soled more than 100 million records around the world
Her collections - while undoubtedly racy enough to race a few parental eyebrows with hot pants and cropped tops - just about erred on the side of decency
Yet those same parents will have been horrified by the pictures which emerged this week of the 25-year-old Barbadian born-star. Photographed with two giant, phallic spliffs in her red lip-lipsticked mouth. Rihanna posted the picture on Twitter for her 30million followers to enjoy.
Most of these followers are of course young girls. Those same girl's some as young as eight or nine have been packing out her concerts at Twinkenham this month as part of her sell-out UK tour.
they writhe and pout along to her suggestive lyrics in a mimicry of adult sexuality
is it fair that we berate female stars for being bad when we don't berate the men in the same way? Yes, it is fair because, young women are far more impressionable than young men.
They want to be Rihanna, have her lifestyle, her clothes, her men, her habits. I wish she'd stop infecting our High Streets with her gun tatoos, 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.
While Rihanna knows when to tone it down in order to pull in advertisement deals and keep her record label sweet - so much so that she has enough dollar bills to as carpet and so many diamonds she can pretend to smoke in a spliff, both things she's been pictured doing - the message she is sending to her young fans through her explicit lyrics, vile dance moves and pictures on Twitter is utterly toxic.
Rihanna Replied. Trust her to even include the journalists photo hehehehe. Read it below:
"LOL!!!! My money got the bad habit of pissing people of!! If you sincerely wanna help little girls more than their own parents do, here's a toxic tip: don't be amateur with your with your articles! what's all these about hair and nails and costumes and tatoos??...That shit ain't clever!!! That shit ain't journalism! That's a sad, sloppy menopausal mess!! Nobody over here acts like they are 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 that! I got my own fucked up shit to work on, I'll never portray that as perfect, but for right now its ME! Call it what you want!! Toxic was cute, Poisonous Pop Princess had a nice ring to it, just a lil wordy! And PS, my first American Vogue cover was 2011...APRIL # EilizabethAnnJones"
