Russell Simmons is coming to Rihanna’s defence after Chris Brown called her out for her self-destructive lifestyle. He said she’s been “had” by every industry rapper (we all know what he means) in his new freestyle rap over Kanye West’s “Way Too Cold.”
Simmons took to his blog to defend the so-called “Good Girl Gone Bad.”
“As far as I’m concerned, I don’t see why everyone has their panties up in a bunch. It’s just that she is out there allegedly fuckin’ the rockstars of her dreams and you out there fuckin’ groupies. You can’t be mad that she was seen walking out of Ashton Kutcher’s house late one night, cause you know if you were seen walking out of Adriana Lima’s house late one night, you would be in the studio the next day rapping about it. I mean, you all got like 50 girls in your videos drooling over you and you dissing Rihanna? I can’t blame a girl for being independent, having fun and living her life the way she wants to. I am certainly not condoning indiscriminate sex, but don’t get mad cause the girl…”
Here here Russell. You tell ‘em.
Brown’s original lyric caused Rihanna to unfollow him on Twitter, though he said she’s making to many assumptions. He said: “Don’t f–k with my old bitch it’s like a bad fur/ Every industry n—- done had her/ Shook the tree like a pumpkin just to smash her/ Bitch is breaking codes, but I’m the password.”
I totally agree that there’s an unfair double standard in the music business. Plus, the fact that Chris Brown is the one calling her out is laughable.
Do you think the comments against Rihanna are too harsh?
