See Photos of Rihanna at a Strip Club
Rihanna as role model? Not if she can help it. More like Rihanna Gone Wild! The Bajan singer took another step to distance herself from any assertion that she is someone to look up to, by visiting a strip club and tweeting some seriously raunchy photos from the evening.
One is really NSFW, as it sees Ri tossing dollar bills at a stripper who is on her back while another exotic dancer gets provocative with her, simulating oral sex acts.
RiRi seemed to enjoy tearing down the idea that she has any sort of responsibility to the public or her fans because she is a pop star, tweeting, "#ROCstarshit. My daddy would be proud." It's as though she is mocking it in a mean way.
Remember, in her British Vogue cover last fall, she took issue with being forced into role model status, saying, "See, people — especially white people — they want me to be a role model just because of the life I lead. The things I say in my songs, they expect it of me and [being a role model] became more of my job than I wanted it to be. But no, I just want to make music. That’s it.” She wants no parts of that label.
She also tweeted about enjoying herself, posting: "Best stress reliever= $tripper$. Kill it Tip it #Cake."
She also include the hashtags "#RoleModelS---" and "#NaviS---" with the tweet that included the photo of her bumping and grinding a stripper. Ri is wearing a sweatshirt and short shorts in the photos, a tame ensemble, comparatively speaking.
Given her recent activities – rolling blunts at Coachella, getting her knuckles inked -- RiRi may be enforcing the idea that she is not a role model, but we can't help but wonder when this behavior might become damaging to her career.
