Award winning singer Rihanna, has created cause for concern from fans and family following recent photographs released to the media.
Ronald Fenty, father of one of the biggest selling female artist’s of modern times, Rihanna, has spoken out in a recent interview with The Sun newspaper about his concerns for his songstress daughter. After recent photo’s released on the singer’s Twitter page, and other news outlets showing her smoking what appears to be Marijuana. There are other snaps of her cutting up a mysterious white powder, causing concern about her bahaviour. Rihanna sparked controversy at the beginning of 2012 after being photographed in Hawaii smoking a hand rolled cigerette, that some people have suspected is marjuana. Later on that same day she took to her Twitter, writing: “Kush rolled, glass fill…I prefer the better things!” Lyrics she quoted from Rapper Drake‘s hit single “Up All Night.”
The 24-year-old first showed signs that the ‘Good girl has possibly gone Bad’ in October of last year, when she stopped off at Amsterdam’s notorious Bulldog Cafe, one of the first venues in Holland to legally sell Marijuana after it was decriminalised in the 1970s. She was photographed walking out of the cafe with her entourage, wearing sunglasses and a fur hat. But it is the photo’s taken at the 2012 Coachella festival in California, in which she is sat upon the shoulders of a male security guard appearing to cut up a mysterious white powder. Ronald Fenty, has told the press that his daughter’s wild behaviour could be a bad road for the young pop star. He went on to talk about Rihanna‘s love for the late Whitney Houston. Fenty revealed in the interview with The Sun newspaper, Rihanna was obsessed with Houston as a kid: “She used to love Whitney. Robyn [Rihanna's birth name] would always sing along to ‘I Will Always Love You.’” He added, “She admired Whitney because of her range, her voice, her appearance, her personality, everything. She loved Whitney so much she would be honoured to play her in a movie. I think she would accept in a heartbeat.”
Fenty, who battled drug and alcohol addiction himself throughout his daughters younger days also sounded off on Rihanna’s likelihood of following Houston’s downward spiral: “I hope she will be smart enough not to go down that path. I think she is smart enough not to.” Rihanna is quoted by one UK news paper as saying: “My first song that I remember falling in love with was a Whitney Houston song— ’I Will Always Love You.’ All of her music actually was always played in my house.” When asked about possibly playing Houston in any future movie about the star and her life, she went on to say: “That would be something that I would have to give my entire life to do because I would want to really pull it off. That’s a huge, huge role and whoever does it has to do a good job.”
In response to MTV, who first published the controversial story about her Coachella antics, Rihanna took to Twitter yet again simply saying: “Pathetic C*****.”
Let’s hope this apparent episode in her life is momentary and short-lived. Or could it all be a way of gaining more media attention? Either way, Sataloma News would like to wish Rihanna all the best and express the world is not ready to watch another young talented female fall victim to the strains and pressure money, fame and success can bring.
