Reporters should know by now that Rihanna isn’t into personal questions about her dating life. I understand why she’d want to keep that part of her life private, however, many of the rumours start with her very public tweets.
Rihanna spoke to Sunrise’s Natalie Barr about her upcoming movie “Battleship.” She wasn’t feeling well that day but agreed to sit down for the interview anyway. Among questions about her movie and singing career, Barr asked her how frustrating it is to be asked questions about her personal life. It wasn’t a question that went into specific details, but it was enough for Rihanna’s publicists to cut the interview short.
Personally, I think our fixation with Rihanna’s personal life is unreasonable and I never understood the argument that we’re entitled to pry because celebrities trade in their private life for fame. When it comes down to it, being a commercial actor or singer is a job. Granted, it’s occasionally a very privileged career if you’re successful, but it’s not worth selling your soul for. Still, Barr has a job to do and is only asking questions that interest viewers most.
Do you think reporters focus too much on her personal life?
