Earlier this week, a line off Chris Brown’s freestyle over “Way Too Cold” had many believing it was about Rihanna. One person has had enough of people speaking out against the pop star's rumored dating history and personal life. Def Jam founder Russell Simmons tweeted “Everyone needs to get off Rihanna’s dick” and included a link to his pro-Rihanna statement. Read it below.
"There have been a lot of artists recently talking about "good girl gone bad," Rihanna. As far as I'm concerned, I don't see why everyone has their panties up in a bunch. It's just that she is out there allegedly fuckin' the rockstars of her dreams and you out there fuckin' groupies. You can't be mad that she was seen walking out of Ashton Kutcher's house late one night, cause you know if you were seen walking out of Adriana Lima's house late one night, you would be in the studio the next day rapping about it. I mean, you all got like 50 girls in your videos drooling over you and you dissing Rihanna? I can't blame a girl for being independent, having fun and living her life the way she wants to. I am certainly not condoning indiscriminate sex, but don't get mad cause the girl..."
"Remember, I was a manager once and I have seen these types of young men on the road. I was with Run-DMC, the Beastie Boys, LL Cool J, Public Enemy, Whoodini and saw all of the girls after the show line up outside the dressing rooms. I mean, Whoodini even wrote a song about, "I Am A Hoe" and went on to rap, "I rock three different girls after every show." So, I know how this shit works. You all got 10 times as many girls as Rihanna has men, and you know that. I love you guys, and this certainly ain't a diss, but I gotta keep it real."
Rihanna has lived up to her wild girl image as we pointed out earlier this month. She has been all about that #YOLO life, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but it's caused a lot of people to start judging. Maybe Russell's statement will get those people to mind their own business.
