Rihanna -- I'm a Rockstar, NOT A PARENT!!!

6/2/2011 10:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Rihanna is lashing back at the people criticizing her violent new music video for "Man Down" -- scoffing at the notion she's a role model ... saying, "What's up with everybody wantin me to be a parent?"

RiRi went to her Twitter page today after the Parents Television Council condemned the "Man Down" video for depicting a premeditated murder and implying killing someone is an acceptable form of revenge.

Rihanna tweeted, "I'm a 23 year old rockstar with NO KIDS! What's up with everybody wantin me to be a parent? I'm just a girl, I can only be your/our voice!"

She continued, "We have the freedom to make art, LET US! Its your job to make sure they dont turn out like US."

  "U can't hide your kids from society, or they'll never learn how to adapt! This is the REAL WORLD."

Those who praise, worship, and agree with Rihanna's statement are either not parents or on drugs. This society is a mess. I wonder why natural disasters are intensifying? This world is going to hell in a hand basket! Mark my words!

Unbelievable how folks are supporting her "art." Wonder how people would feel if the depiction were the kkk gunning down a black person, or a klan member hanging a jewish person. Hmmmm. Unbelievable that people are passing this off as parenting.

VIOLENCE IS NOT OK. RIHANNA IS A CREEP. MAKES ME WONDER IF SHE DESERVED WHAT SHE GOT NOW AFTER ALL.

Did no one notice?: In the video she shot down the man who raped her the night before, she was clearly in shock still and was remorseful for killing him, she simply wanted him hurt. He raped her people, right or not her vengance was taken out during distress.

....I'm just a girl, ........."
Right, but an ugly one. What did Brown ever see in her? Looking at the above picture, she reminds me of those b1tches involved in streetfights.

I love the fact that she states "I can only be your/our voice" and then says she's not a role model. Personally, if someone is claiming to be my voice or anyone else's they should consider their actions as a reflection of that "voice". Personally, her video is ok, but not anything to write home about, much like her music. So not offended here by her "art".

Violence depicted in her videos & songs is strangely connected with violence in her own life. She is no parent, she is no 23 girl, she is a woman who is making bad choices for herself...as a parent she certainly is no role model for any age.

@ David....It's parents job to control what their kids should watch. I have a daughter and she barely watch any channel other than Disney or cartoon network. Though i have seen some creepy cartoons with assassination in them. She is a "musician" not your kids guardian angel. if she was a role model she wouldn't dress like a slut in first place. Role models died...for example like Princess Diana. IMHO
