What’s the world coming to when a gal can’t even wave her butt on stage without getting a whole load of shit dumped on her by a fellow artist?
Former Spice Girl Mel C (she’s the frumpy-looking one in case you can’t remember) reckons that Rihanna is far to sexy to be seen by kids. Mel, 40, has banned her five-year-old daughter Scarlet from watching Rih Rih – and says it’s a shame that a singer so talented is overtly sexual.
Mel C tells the Radio Times: “My five year old daughter loves Rihanna, but she has no idea what her idol looks like, because there is little footage of Rihanna that I’m happy for her to see.
“It’s a shame that a talented, successful woman expresses herself in an overtly sexual way … We need to have a bigger conversation about society’s obsession with celebrity. It’s vulgar and narcissistic and it affects young girls.
“There are some great artists out there, but sometimes we could just do with a bit more dignity.”
Here at Ginger Clam we’d choose vulgarity over dignity every time – but hey what do we know? Meanwhile, we look forward to seeing how Rih Rih reacts to this truly terrifying onslaught.
