Rihanna has taken umbrage to a critical article by Daily Mail columnist Liz Jones, and she has labelled the columnist a “sad sloppy menopausal mess” after she called the singer a poor role model.
Rihanna decided to post an image of Jones to her Instagram page on Tuesday afternoon before embarking on a lengthy tirade against Jones.
She wrote in the caption, “LOL!!!! My money got a bad habit of p****** 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 s*** ain’t clever! That s*** ain’t journalism! That’s a sad sloppy menopausal mess!”
The singer then went on to add, “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***** up s*** to work on, I’ll never portray that as perfect, but for right now it’s ME!! Call it what ya want!!”
Rihanna decided to take aim at Jones after she wrote in the Daily Mail earlier in the day that the singer was a bad role model to her younger fans. She accused her of promoting, “drug-taking, drinking and the sort of fashion sense on stage that surely invites rape at worst, disrespect at least.”
Jones then went on to say that Rihanna “should come with a government health warning,” whilst she is also a “poisonous pop princess.”
What do you think of Rihanna’s comments? Should she have responded to Jones’ harsh words?
