You’d think by now people would have given up on offering their opinions on Rihanna and Chris Brown’s ”relationship.” Because grown people are going to do what grown people want to do. And quite possibly rub it in everyone’s faces at the same time. Rihanna has proven that she’s run out of fucks to give when it comes to people’s perception of her. And Chris Brown? He currently looks like a zombie on bath salts. He doesn’t have a care in the world. With their middle fingers pointed to the world, why should anyone else care what these two do?
But that hasn’t stopped Lena Dunham, of Girls, from expressing her opinion.
In a recent podcast interview with (of all people) Alec Baldwin, Dunham expressed her displeasure with Rihanna. Although she’s admitted to being a fan, she’s been having a change of thought lately:
Being a role model is amazing. It’s an amazing thing and it’s like, it’s a platform that you have to take seriously. Which is why sometimes it’s like I used to be really into Rihanna, that pop star, and then it’s like again, I don’t want to ever throw stones from my glass house, but I follow her on Instagram and I just think about how many little girls beyond what I could even comprehend are obsessed with Rihanna. Like you know, she left Barbados, she’s had this amazing career, she’s won a Grammy. She’s talented. And then she gets back together with Chris Brown and posts a million pictures of them smoking marijuana together on a bed. And it cracks my heart in half in a way that makes me feel like I’m 95 years old.
Oh, Lena. If you don’t like what you see on her Instagram, there’s that simple unfollow button. Do I think Rihanna is a positive role model? Not exactly. But did you realize who’s interviewing you? Alec Baldwin is the same man who had his own accusations of battering women, all allegedly of course. And on top of that, he’s even gone as far as to verbally abuse his 11-year-old daughter, which was all caught on tape. The exact words he used were:
I could be shouting shit at random people on the street, but I’m calling you. I don’t care that you’re twelve or eleven or whatever, are you pig enough to pick it up? I’m a good father, and you’re a pig. I don’t give a shit. Good father. You think this is abuse? You think this is abuse, you thoughtless pain in the ass?
Maybe the next time Lena Dunham expresses her concern about someone and their relationship, she should probably find a better choir to preach to than someone who verbally abuses their child.
I’ll sit back and count how many fucks Rihanna gives about this opinion.
