Former Spice Girl Mel C is NOT pleased with RiRi!
During a recent interview, Sporty Spice spoke out against Rihanna for being too sexual "in her videos and on stage for her young fans."
Here's what she had to say about it:
"People have to take some responsibility because we've got to a point where the over-sexualisation of young children has gone too far. I think music is a big part of that. Women in music are extremely sexual and they have young fans. It is inappropriate."
"Rihanna has a responsibility and although culture's always changing, it's changed too much. It needs to be dealt with. It's reached saturation point, we owe it to our kids to protect them."
"I love Rihanna, I think she's a f***ing brilliant artist, with great songs, a great record and she looks fantastic…but she's not a mum. Maybe if she becomes one she'll feel different. I hope so anyway."
And here's Mel C on whether or not she thinks the Spice Girls were too sexual back in the day:
"It's a long time ago since the Spice Girls were first together and we were criticised for being sexual. Yes we wore crop tops, look how much has changed, but we always sat down as a group and if somebody felt something was inappropriate for our young fans, we did something about it. I think that's something young people in the music industry today, like Rihanna, should do now."
What do U think about these attacks on RiRi? Do U agree with what Mel C is saying here?
