Los Angeles, June 26: An "amateur" article calling Rihanna as "Pop's poisonous princess" and a "toxic role model for her army of young fans” by a scribe has left the singer fuming.
The write-up appeared June 25 accusing the “Umbrella” star of setting a bad example with her saucy dress sense and racy dance routines.
The 25-year-old expressed her anger over it on online photo-sharing, video-sharing and social networking service Instagram, reports dailystar.co.uk.
"If you sincerely want to help little girls more than their own parents do, here's a toxic tip: don't be amateur with your articles, you sound bitter! That's a sad sloppy menopausal mess," posted Rihanna.
"Nobody over here acts like they're perfect. I don't pretend that I'm like you, I just live my life. And I don't know why you all still act so surprised by any of it,” she added.
The singer insists that she has never tried to be a role model for young girls.
"Role model is not a position or title that I have ever campaigned for, so chill with that. I got my own f**ked up s**t to work on, I'll never portray that as perfect, but for right now it's me. Call it what you want. Toxic was cute, poisonous pop princess had a nice ring to it, just a little wordy,” she added.
