Rihanna Battles Journalist Online

It all began when journalist Liz Jones took Rihanna to task in the Daily Mail for being a “toxic role model,” admonishing the multiplatinum singer for, in Jones’ opinion, regularly promoting sex– and drug-laden imagery, publicly continuing her relationship with abusive beau Chris Brown (just charged in a hit-and-run), and flaunting “the sort of fashion sense on stage that surely invites rape at worst.” Rihanna did not take kindly to the paper’s criticisms; the singer resorted to Instagram to issue a written response to the author: ‘”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 s— to work on, I’ll never portray that as perfect, but for right now it’s ME!! Call it what ya want!!’ Well, no one ever said Rihanna was a good debater.
