Just one day after such outspoken groups as the Parents Television Council, Enough Is Enough and Industry Ears took issue with the video--in particular, a scene that shows the singer shooting a man who had assaulted her--Ri-Ri has snapped back at 'em via Twitter...
"I'm a 23 year old rockstar with NO KIDS!" she tweeted earlier today. "What's up with everybody wantin me to be a parent? I'm just a girl, I can only be your/our voice!"
But she didn't stop there.
"Cuz we all know how difficult/embarrassing it is to communicate touchy subject matters to anyone especially your parents!" Rihanna added. "And this is why! Cuz we turn the other cheek! U can't hide your kids from society, or they'll never learn how to adapt! This is the REAL WORLD!"
The pop star capped it off with: "The music industry isn't exactly Parents R Us! We have the freedom to make art, LET US! Its your job to make sure they dont turn out like US."
Whose side are you on, Ri-Ri's or the critics'?
