RiRi calls the criticizing article 'a sad sloppy menopausal mess,' adding, ' 'Role Model' is not a position or title that I have ever campaigned for, so chill wit dat!'
Rihanna is furious at Daily Mail reporter Liz Jones after she was branded a "toxic role model" in an editorial piece. The Bajan songstress retaliated in an Instagram post, "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!"
RiRi was called a "pop's poisonous princess" for "glorying in drugs, guns and sleaze." She was also criticized for "going back to her abusive boyfriend, Chris Brown," showing "the sort of fashion sense on stage that surely invites rape at worst, disrespect at least," and "infecting our High Streets with her gun tattoos, her false nails and fake hair."
"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!!!" she added. "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 shit 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."
