Rihanna Slammed By Her Fans For “Starving Herself” For Photoshoot
Rihanna’s fans have turned on the singer after she tweeted she had prepared for a photoshoot by starving herself. The singer made the comments on Twitter in reference to an upcoming appearance in men’s magazine, Esquire.
“#RihannaNavy I shot my first cover for Esquire yesterday with Russell James #rockstarshit Not much preparation for that besides wax+starve!!”
Her comment was immediately slammed by her Twitter followers, with many saying it set a bad example for her fans:
“Starve?? why?? thats a bad message to your fans ri-ri im dissapointed,” one fan wrote.
Another said: ‘@rihanna how long did you starve??? That #rockstars*** doesn’t seem fun!!’
Rihanna ignored the comments and later tweeted: ‘British Vogue here I come….#ontothenextone
Earlier this year, Rihanna condemned a former Big Brother contestant after he launched a Twitter campaign promoting “managed anorexia”.
In a recently interview with Glamour magazine, RiRi confessed that she was frustrated at having to be a role model.
She said: “I want to set the right example and, at the same time, live my life. I feel like popstars can’t be rock stars anymore because they have to be role models, and it takes the fun out of it for us, because we just want to have fun with art.”
What do you think of RiRi’s tweet?
