Rihanna to PTC: I'm a Rock Star, Not a Role Model!!

by at . Comments

Rihanna is no role model, and she'll readily admit that - while hitting back at the PTC for criticizing the message of her new music video this week.

The Parents Television Council condemned Rihanna's "Man Down" video for depicting a premeditated murder and glorifying the revenge aspect.

Outraged at the video's violent content, the group also implied a double standard, saying Chris Brown would be condemned for a similar video.

Rihanna Tweeted today in response:

"I'm a 23 year old rockstar with NO KIDS! What's up with everybody wantin me to be a parent? I'm just a girl, I can only be your/our voice!"

"We have the freedom to make art, LET US! Its your job to make sure they dont turn out like US. U can't hide kids from society or they'll never learn how to adapt!"

"This is the REAL WORLD."

While the content of her video pushes the envelope farther than most, she makes a reasonable point. It is a parent's responsibility, is it not?

Thoughts?

Who is Rihanna kidding? Her success as a pop-artist depends on young people mimicking her behaviour and 'art'. It's part of the business model. When her fans scream "I love you, Rihanna" she'll answer "I love you too" even though she clearly doesn't care about the welfare of other people's children. She knows that her country has foolishly appointed her as their ambassador. She needs to look up the meaning of the word and it's job description. Of course, parents are responsible for their children's upbringing, but she has to live with her choice to expose children without consulting parents to her harmful behaviour. I'm soo tired of artists portraying negativity publicly and out of context, and then thinking they can clean up their image by throwing their blood money at random causes. To whom much is given, much is required.

Rockstar? LMAO! The people sticking up for her are just as moronic as her. So your opinion does not matter to me.
To the people with some sense read her rant again. She CONTRADICTS herself : )
She says she's not a role model, but then says I can only be your/our voice. Even her rambling about you can't hide your kids from the real world, e.t.c. e.t.c sounds like a parent! And she already said she's not a parent (thank the heavens)!
Don't you love it?! You gotta love it!!!!!! Keep digging that hole Rih Rih!

Now look! Parents need to stop trying to have these celebs raise their kids. I do understand where the parents is coming from. But, parents do have the rights to change their own channel on the tv. Parents should be their on kids rolemodel, not the celebs. Im not a big fan of rihanna, but like she said postly; she is an artist, not a parent. And im sure damn well dont know where she get rock star from either. Personally, i dont like the song. But, thats my opinion and im sticking to it. Cause to me; riri do thing for attention and that is a cry out for help. Rihanna did say that she havent been the same since her and chris brown fallout. The girl is heartbroken, sad, and confuse about her love for chris. I think riri know's what really happen between her and chris two yrs ago. She is not being 100% real about the situation between her and chris. So for some reason she feel bad about it. Is im the only one who notice that?

What is the problem with parents these days. Okay yes i understand that some parents do not expose there children to sexual and violent content but you people must realize that what you keep from your kids will find them all kids are exposed to this type of content in life. So what ever you think is wrong wit this video is only part of what kids and teens will do. I mean most kids now a days drink smoke and what ever else they can get a hold of. Now i am not saying its okay though. Let Rhianna do her thing

Am I the only that's bothered that she called herself a rock star? Because last time I checked, you actually have to sing rock music. Just face is sweetie, you're a pop star with a little edge.

i agree with Rihanna. If parents dont want their kids exposed to sex drugs & rock n roll then they can live like The Duggar family.

i'm not a really high moral preachy person but her performance on the BB awards was a disgrace if she wants to make pornos do so but again that performance was crazy i wish i had some children i mean having your ass in the air does not take away from her terrible singing. She should have tweeted i can't sing i'm TALENTLESS

Nikki, how can you keep all of that away from children? In today's times? You just admitted it's bad for kids so if we as adults, parentless or not, care about children then maybe some restriction on certain things is needed. This isn't art and if she's that talented why can't she sing or dress like a nice young woman? She probably doesn't know how. I am just glad I grew up when I did when the media and adults actually cared about protecting the youth.

She is not a ROCKSTAR! These POPstars are all T&A, Barnum and Bailey Freak show. She knows what she's doing, it's too bad the sheep that follow her don't.

Sometimes you just need your privacy. But it comes with the territory. There's no privacy when you are out in the public.
