I’ve always been kind of indifferent about Rihanna. I never really liked her voice but somehow her music always grew on me.
Unfortunately, I’ve lost respect for Rihanna over the last couple months she’s been out. Like all other young female musicians before her, she has gotten to know her slutty side and to be honest, it’s just too much.
Her video for her latest single “Shut Up and Drive” is a classic example of in-your-face sexuality that seems more staged than real. I understand that it’s not driving that she wants to do here but do you really need to rub up against every car in your “Let’s not wear clothes” repair shop to get people to understand that?
Not to mention the fact that it seems like she forgot to wear a shirt without holes in it and shorts that look more like painted on underwear than a piece of clothing.
As a female, this is not something I wish too see. When a female is reduced to the same value as the car she is groping on, we have some problems. Now, I’m all for celebrating the fact that your hot but in Rihanna’s case, I just want to say that the jig is up. We get it. You’re hot. Now can you please put some clothes on!
I hope that Rihanna understands that you don’t have to wear leather booty shorts and a leather jacket that looks like it would fit my 5-year-old cousin to be taken seriously.
The girl has some talent but it’s hard to see that when she is treated more as an object than an actual person. I just think that it would be refreshing and kind of nice to see a young female musician I can respect rather than be disappointed by.
