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?
