Rihanna Reacts To “Man Down” Video Criticism

A day after the release of her new video, “Man Down“, Ri Ri drew criticism from the Parents Television Council which claims the clip encourages violence. It didn’t take long before she responded to the hoopla via her Twitter account.

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.

Cuz we all know how difficult/embarrassing it is to communicate touchy subject matters to anyone especially our parents! And this is why! Cuz we turn the other cheek! U can’t hide your kids from society,or they’ll never learn how to adapt! This is the REAL WORLD!

The music industry isn’t exactly Parents R Us! We have the freedom to make art, LET US! Its your job to make sure they dont turn out like US.

    and she’s also saying she’s a bad role model.

  • G

    Which makes sense because no parent should want their kid talking to someone who assaulted them.

  • Word

    My dream is for Rihanna to one day knock on my door and offer to suck my dick.

  • Donn

    Damn RiRi, thats some real shit!!!

    If you ain’t Jesus Christ, dont preach about right from wrong. I’m not justifying doing anything negative but its not the Music Industry’s job to raise your kids. I recall Rihanna being invited to Nickelodeon to sing “Rude Boy” and all the kids knew the words. I wonder how they knew the words??? Hmmmmm

    Y’ALL SPEND LIKE 20 COMMENTS INSULTING EACH OTHER. TROLLS ARE THE WORSE

    I just saw the video, and read that she wrote the Treatment. Thats freakin’ awesome mann. I liked the video. Aren’t their movies showing ppl killing each other and murdering ppl and their complaining about her video?? WTF?? Why don’t u just censor the world. Parents be going over board. I let my sister listen to Game, Lil Wayne, Eminem but she knows not to use the words and language. Kids know what they doin’, cut the ambilical chord

  • Jimmy, The Creator

    @Donn get a Job bitch ass nigga lmfao… Cole World

  • http://www.myflightlessons.com Flight Lessons

    damn.. rihanna your so fuckin sexy!

  • Toya

    I agree that lazy parents want to sanitize everything so they don’t have to do any real parenting. If these parents were really confident in their role, and the intelligence of their child, they won’t freak over something small like this.

  • Jimmy, The Creator

    @toya bitch you also need a father figure. You proly get fuck by every guy insight so you can be a rebel and get back at your parents lmfao… how many months pregnant did you say were?… Cole World

  • Braniak

    LOL @ G

    Foe real…what makes her think she’s a “Rockstar”
    Shut Up bitch and swallow.

  • ireland

    lollllllllllllllll that girl is simple

  • Based

    I agree that these artists should be allowed to express themselves how they feel and it is the parents job to keep kids away from it. But I also agree with the Parents TV Council about the double standard there. If Chris Brown made a video like that or any other male artist for that matter, the world would crucify them. Why does Rihanna get a pass?

  • phraynkhp

    preach!!!!! never heard the song it prolly sucks ass but i agree with her 100% on this
