mel c vs rihanna

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?

  1. 1

    Totally agree with Mel C.



  2. 2

    Good for her. I agree. The problem with so many of these half naked stars is that without the visual distraction, will anyone listen to them sing?



  3. 3

    Make that 3 agrees. Society is like a dirty uncle now, exposing itself to our children and nobody is doing anything about it.



  4. 4

    I completely agree w/Mel C. too.



  5. 5

    hell yeah i agree its got to the point that i cant stand rihanna for her filthy lyrics and lack of clothes, she sickens me.



  6. 6

    I totally agree with Mel. Rihanna wore really inappropriate clothing on the UK X Factor last year and it was at a time that young children would be watching. Her antics in Barbados recently grinding against other women clearly shows that she doesn't care about her young fans. Also the naked pictures which were leaked a while back doesn't send a wholesome message to fans. I remember listening to Janet Jackson "Lets Wait Awhile", and "Rhythm Nation" album - why can't we have artists who send positive messages to kids? Katy Perry is just as bad - using sex to sell records. I applaud Taylor Swift for being a real lady and someone young girls should emulate - classy, talented, and inspiring.



  7. 7

    completely agree with this..the 6 year old i babysit was singing S&M the other day and asked me what it meant…i said i didnt know :/



  8. 8

    It's called "an opinion" not an attack YOU DUMB FUCK!



  9. 9

    Attacks? Seriously can you be anymore dramatic? Mel C seemed to be maturely explaining her opinion on the situation. She explains how she feels, why she feels that way and offers a solution to fix it. There is a BIG difference between an opinion explained as such and an immature attack on someone's character or self based off of very little (such as what Kelly O did to Christina recently). If "Riri" reacts in any way other than 'While I respect your opinion I disagree' or 'You are correct, perhaps I could change a few things', than she will come off looking like a baby.

    And for the record, I completely agree with what Mel C is saying.



  10. 10

    RiRidiculous is the poster slave for musical porn.



  11. 11

    FINALLY!!! ITA with Mel. This is just getting ridiculous. Rihanna is the biggest perp and I'm over it. the music industry has become a compettition of who can be the sluttiest and when I see an artist in the competition, I simply stop listening to their music because then it becomes too generic and that's not what i'm in search of when I want to listen to NEW stuff, because that shit is OLD.

    oh c´mon- it´´s the "classical" moral shit that grannies do in years: "oh…ah.. in our times morals were higher , we were better..where is the world going now? "
    I am personally indifferent to Rihanna…but everything goes through different stages, and people will be bored even with that ( and yes, even with nakedness)…how can it be interesting forever? there´s absolutely nothing to worry about…it will pass and then there will appear smth new that all grannies ( and Mel C with them …hehe) will have their heart attacks about



  13. 13

    She's not half as bad as Lady Gaga.



  14. 14

    U agree if you are under 18 why you need to listen to that bombshell singing



  15. 15

    RiRi also talks about how she likes it rough in the bed room, after everything with chris, not a good message. She touches herself constantly through her shows, not good! If jayzs wife can act like a ladie, then why does he produce this crap?



  16. 16

    You people are all ridiculous. It isnt Rihannas responsibility to censor herself for someone else's kids. Get the fuck over yourself Sporty and parent your children. Oh, and what did 2 become 1 mean to yall??



  17. 17

    Agreed.



  18. 18

    Btw, mel is beautiful. My husband mistaken RiRi for a dude the other day. My husband has drag queen friends that are sexier than her, and hes not gay



  19. 19

    I see what Melanie is saying and as I was reading it I was like oh yea the mom factor for sure plays a big part in this, but Rihanna has changed her style since that "Umbrella" song and she's going to do whatever, as well as Katy Perry or any female or male artists nowadays. Madonna does whatever, yea for a bit during the her first does of motherhood she cleaned it up a bit but then that artistry just takes over and you do it for the art. times have changed alot and although there are artist who have kids as fans they also have adult men, women, and a thriving club scene where record labels wanna appeal more to to sell & be on top of polls, Maxim, rolling stone, and all that stuff. There's something out there for everyone and if you don't like it don't' watch it and parents/mentors can become stronger parents in the process.



  20. 20

    I agree as well. I saw her at a free concert a few weeks before the Chris Brown incident and I remember thinking, "Wow, she is really talented" but, honestly, even though I have seen her live when I think of Rhianna I don't think of her voice. I think over her oversexualization. In a time in history where there are more slaves in the world than their have ever been in history (a vast majority are female sex slaves) we should be looking to empower women and not allow them to be objectified the way that our culture loves to objectify female celebrities. You can be talented, beautiful and sexy without feeding into male sexual fantasy.



  21. 21

    Mel C is absolutely correct. The people we put on pedestals today amounts to child abuse to those parents who allow their kids to be exposed to it. Druggies are tortured artists and the like of Rihanna arnt famous because of musical genius or pushing creative boundaries, they are famous for acting like total whores and laughing all the way to the bank! Shame on todays society. Its this sort of sickness that , in a different form, fuels the riots over in the UK!



  22. 22

    Oh gosh. These spice girls where a bunch of nasty girls. Youthfulness is always a threat to us women until we in brace who we r. Rhianna is rocking. Be a good parent and don't let them see or listen to her stuff.



  23. 23

    Also look a the shirt she is wearing what ever Spice Girl.



  24. 24

    Re: Kasey19 – No it is her responsibility. Especially when someone comes out and says i saw it in a rihanna video.



  25. 25

    I agree. I don't know the specifics of her target market, but I assume the majority is young & if it is, her behavior is irresponsible.



  26. 26

    Shut up Mario.
    If that's an attack then what you say to and about celebrities every day is fucking abuse. Everyone is entitled to an opinion.
    I liked Rihanna before but to hear her on the radio during the day singing about whips and chains and getting beat up is not acceptable for a child to hear. I see where she's coming from, I'm no prude but her music and image is a step too far IMO.



  27. 27

    It's disgusting how female artists focus more on sex appeal than actual talent..



  28. 28

    I don't think there is much left to say after skimming all the comments on here…rihanna has to rely on sex cuz she can't sing or dance. She is no where near the caliber of performers such as Beyonce or artists, however indifferent I may be to them, such as Gaga. So she uses sex to sell records and compete. Its really sad, but the blame must also got to the record execs and men who rule the music industry…rihanna is packaged like a slice of cheese…the blame goes to her manufacturers and handlers as well…its not entirely her fault she's a young, mindless puppet.



  29. 29

    If Mel had said this about Miley Cyrus or Lindsay Lohan Perez would be all over it agreeing and kissing her ass, but because its about Rihanna he calls it an attack.



  30. 30

    as she said "people need to take some responsibility" yeah like the parents. my nephew has young girls and they're not allowed to listen to certain gaga, rhianna, katy perry, ect… songs. they actually monitor what they can watch and listen to. plus they are not allowed on the computer without an adult in the room.
    *
    so funny mel c. is acting so holier than thou now that she has children. i remember the spice girls saying madonna was one of their biggest idols. plus didn't that ginger spice have a bunch of nudie pictures out.



  31. 31

    Re: Kasey19 – I agree, it's not her responsibility to censor herself. If you're going to let your kid listen to a song called 'S&M' then that's your decision, Rihanna didn't come to your house and force the earbuds into your kid's ears. That's like blaming Marilyn Manson for Columbine, Dungeons and Dragons for satanism, etc. And besides, musicians have been writing songs about sex and sexual love since time began, this isn't some horrible new trend in music.

    32

    'What do U think about these attacks on RiRi?'
    It's not an attack on RiRi. It's an attack on her too sexual persona. Mel C for the win.



  33. 33

    I'm so happy artists like Mel still feel free to speak their mind.
    To be honest Melanie has so much talent no wonder she doesn't need to show her body all the time.



  34. 34

    Sure, over-sexualisation is a huge problem but saying that "women in music are extremely sexual" is just ridiculous. People like Enrique Iglesias or Chris Brown can go shirtless onstage and dry hump and make-out with women but, god forbid, a women wears something equally as sexual and dances in a way that can be provacrative!



  35. 35

    Well Rihanna said herself how she is a role model to young girls after the CB incident. So she can't really play the am not a role model card. Rihanna uses sex to sell music but it's still a parents responsibility to raise their child. Saying that artist like Rihanna don't make it easy and quite frankly I think parents are just fed up with having to monitor everything. They have other things to worry about too and no matter how much you monitor kids will find out in school anyways from other kids whose parents don't monitor them.

    36

    I agree with Mel C, 100%



  37. 37

    Re: shutittwat – Oh really? so when does accountability come into play when youre raising your child? I saw the Earl Had to Die video. Should I go out and kill an abusive ex? CAN I BLAME THE DIXIE CHICKS?? Thats the dumbest logic I have ever heard…



  38. 38

    Re: MJJ – If parents are so tired of monitoring things, they should have thought a lot more about having kids. The world is tough and not everything is going to be ok for kids to see or hear…



  39. 39

    I recall that the Spice Girls didn't wear bra's and you could see their nips. Every generation is and will always be seen as overly sexual to the younger crowd. Nothing new.



  40. 40

    Umm.. this is not an attack its the truth.



  41. 41

    Artist who rely on sex and shock value only do so because they have nothing else to bring to the table like talent and substance.



  42. 42

    You would never hear her doing an acoustic set sitting on a stool and fully clothed…she just doesn't have the talent to back it up. It's so refreshing to hear Mel C's opinion, there was a really long period of Rihanna just doing red carpet events - i.e. being marketed the hell out of, and then the whole Chris Brown thing happened - cue public sympathy. In a weird way it's the best thing that has ever happened to her career wise. It's a shame she chose to capitalise on it in the skanky way she did.



  43. 43

    i do respect what she is saying but Rihanna's videos and shows ARE NOT for kids and if parents do not want their kids to see an sexual show like that, than don't let them go. Do your homework before you get them tickets. Rihannas concerts id say are for people 18 and up. It is not rihanna's responsibility, thats the parents responsibly.



  44. 44

    While I agree that the parents are responsible for their own children, not Rihanna, it is getting ridiculous how women in mainstream music dress raunchy and gyrate their hips on stage and it passes for talent. It is possible to feel empowered and be successful and express yourself, while still acting like a lady. These women are using that as an excuse to be whores.



  45. 45

    Mel who?

    47

    YAY! Melanie!!! You're TOTALLY RIGHT! Rihanna should really listen to you.Is it all about MUSIC, BODY or SEX? Every single artist SHOULD take and assume their responsabilities. As a PUBLIC persona, they HAVE impact on people's lives. Nto many people are soo honest as Melanie C is. Super Uber talented, honest and VERY down to earth. She's in music industry A LOT LONGER than Rihanna and she has a HUGE authority to speak. Yes, Spice Girls talked about safe Sex in "2 Become 1" Btu have a look at the video… They ARE covered from TOP TO BOTTOM. ;D That is called RESPONSABILITY. Also, she DIDN'T blast Rihanna. She said she's a huge fan and respect her talent so much BUT Riri ISN'T a MOTHER yet. Maybe one day, she'll understand. Worst than that, are popstars who ARE mothers and continue to sell their bodies.. instead of their real talent.. cough.. Brit… cough.. Rihanna ISN'T the only one. Gaga is also TOOO OVER… Beyonce, Britney.. i could make a HUGE list. Meanwhile P!nk is talented and NOT sexual. She's really great! So, Melanie C ROCKS as she's talent and a REAL PERSON, not a body sold character.

    Melanie C is the one WHO opened doors for Rihanna, Britney and All the others. She's MUCH more talented, too. Rihanna should RESPECT, and LISTEN carefully. ok? Nuff said.

    Re: KarenJudeRe: Samtra – agreed best posts on here!



  50. 50

    Sensor what you think is not appropriate. Don't blame everyone else. If your kid is a fuck up that is on you. You r the parent. So Mrs. Mel C. shut up and dress your age why don't you.



  51. 51

    Totally agree with everything Mel C has to say about this situation.



  52. 52

    though these are very wise words to Ms Rhianna, i really don't believe she gives a fuck about what people think of her…..



  53. 53

    i feel as though it is not rihanna's responsibility to censor herself for younger children. she isn't a children's singer. i think it is more of the parent's responsibility to censor what their children can and can't listen to. i know kids can always get a hold of it, but a parent has a voice, and they can help guide their children to whatever they think is "right." not force them, but guide them. for example, people are saying that rihanna's concerts are too racy for children, well shouldn't parents look into what kind of artist they are before buying tickets for their children to go to their concert? if she's singing about being bad and perfectly good at it, i think any parent should know that it's going to be a sexual kind of show.



  54. 54

    I totally agree with what mel c had to say, while I really like Rihanna's songs and her persona, I think she is too sexual, such as her song SMS. She has alot of younger fans it is very inappropriate.

  55. RafaC says – reply to this


    55

    C'mon Melanie was VERY polite, mature and HONEST! She DIDN'T BASH Rihanna. Can't people be honest? People should FACE reality! Sexuality in the music industry is increasing VERY FAST! They HAVE responsabilities YES. If they think it's too much, they can decline to appear nude.



  56. 56

    Go Team Mel C!!!!



  57. 57

    I agree with all that if was said back in 1995! Sexuality has always been a part of music (going back to well, everyone). And sexualising little girls goes back before Shirley Temple made her "Baby Films" when she was all but four. It's nothing new. it's just broadcast more openly and we are realizing the dangers of it. But don;t expect it to stop. It sells.



  58. 58

    Re: tasha4 – Exactly!



  59. 59

    So do you guys think the same thing about Lady Gaga or is it because Rihanna is Black?!?!?



  60. 60

    Totally agree with Mel C!!!

  61. RafaC says – reply to this


    61

    Lady gaga is also over sexual. Not only over in terms of sexuality BUT in terms of EVERYTHING! hahaha… Britney Spears is an expert on this issue too. And Brit is worse than Riri. The majority of her fans are young teenagers.



  62. 62

    Perez, sometime your little comments at the end are so annoying! Attackig RiRi. Seriously. Mel C was pointing out an acuality. RiRi is sexual. She has young fans. But it is the parents job not to let the kids watch videos, or listen to the music. But it would be nice for sme accountability



  63. 63

    Rihanna is gorgeous! Mel C had to name drop her because the Spice Girls were never relevent (though Victoria Beckham and Mel B still are). She needs to quit hating on Rihanna! The Spice Girls looked like trashy back-alley prostitutes. Rihanna looks GLAMOROUS (especially in her recent pictorial in Glamour magazine). If she was too concerned with her children watching Rihanna, TURN THE DAMN TV/RADIO OFF! Also, what about Lady GaGa, Ke$ha, Katy Perry and Britney Spears? (Rihanna's fan base is more than teen girls/gays because she is more diverse - she talks about sexuality, pain, violence, and more people can relate to her)! People forget there is an off button! Hell, S&M was the #1 song in the U.S. earlier this year, and before that What's My Name and Only Girl! All of those songs were about sex and obviously people of all ages loved it! There is no need to tone down sex appeal, though she has an amazing voice too. Sounds like Mel C needs to step up her parenting. Wonder what she would say if she saw Justin Bieber, a CHILD, in a F*** You/Cee-lo Green shirt?

  66. 66

    Re: sugababy15 – Seriously, shut up.



  67. 67

    I am sorry but a huge amount of Rhianna's fans are young girls. Also, she is a role model for young WOMEN who think they have to be overtly sexual and mold themselves into this scantily clad, might-as-well-be-faceless, sexual object to be attractive and "sexy". Being sexy isn't always being half naked and telling a guy "you know I like it rough" after you JUST got your a** beat… COME ON! What kind of message is that sending? She may not be a role model for children but she is for the young women in this country who are still developing their sexual identities and Rhianna's persona enforces that it's ok to let a man dominate you, objectify you and, even worse, abuse you. Her team needs to re-examine where they are taking her career. Children/young adults shouldn't have to live in a box or on a compound in the middle of Nebraska in order to avoid hearing lyrics like, "it smells like sex and I like it". For the record, I am not a parent and I am in my mid-twenties and I feel this way. I don't think you have to be a parent to have some sense and want to see a talented individual take some PRIDE and have some DIGNITY.



  68. 68

    I agree.



  69. 69

    I agree with a lot of these comments about Rihanna being way OTT sexual. She calls herself a ”rockstar” which is kind of sad that she actually thinks that about herself because if she wasn't a singer, she would be classified as a hooker/whore/wannabe porn star.
    I mean I'm not just hating on her for no reason, I think a lot of Rihanna's songs are catchy but I mean jeez what is she going to do next? Start stripping off on stage?
    I agree with the people saying that it's just a distraction from her poor singing because a lot of her sales come from being so sexual, not because she can sing. I mean Beyonce doesn't need to be practically half naked on stage to sell records, she sells them and is so successful because she actually has talent and clearly respects herself too much to drop down to Rihanna's standards.

    bull shit, does she not remember what geri and mel b used to wear, come on, its not that different from Riri….i always hated mel c….

    Believe it or not TVs and radios are built with off switches, if you don't like what you see or hear please utilise it. Stop using Rihanna, Gaga, Britney etc. to excuse bad parenting.



  79. 79

    i agree



  80. 80

    I agree Rihanna tries too hard to be sexy and it's gross. Whenshe does it it's like it doesn't come naturally and it's awkward to watch when she spreads her legs and everything ugh



  81. 81

    Re: booboo1111 – you're just jealous.



  82. 82

    I agree with her!



  83. 83

    I too agree.. she can do what she wants, but theres a fine line between sexy and trashy…you can be sexy and do it with class, or completely go the toher way, which she does….to me Rihanna is someone who just got real lucky, has been given the right songs to sing, and has a pretty face. She can sing - just not very well, especially live! In this day and age, if you got the right song, reguardless whether it's about s&m, sex, whatever, it can out you in the spotlight - Rihanna isn't stupid, she wants to stay there, and will just keep singing what is given to her.
    Many people bring up Gaga, which again I agree with…but I don't even think Gaga does it to try and be sexy, I don't think she actually cares about being 'pretty' in that sense, she just wants attention full stop.



  84. 84

    Honestly what's with all the woman bashing, Mel C was just as raunchy at Rihanna's age, it is not any artists responsibility to raise any child other than their own, I think she's really talented and I applaud her style, and believe me I'm way older than her usual demographic, I just think there are way too many double standards. Male artists have been 'touching' themselves for years, a woman does it and she has to face all this vitriol, crazy!

    Re: POPSCIDICTATOR – Spice Girls were pretty much the first all female group to achieve worldwide fame on a pandemic scale. I'm sorry but Spice Girls were on a whole different level than TLC. I love me some TLC but let's be real, hardly anyone cared about TLC outside of the US. The whole world went nuts for Spice Girls.



  88. 88

    i love mel c
    she has a great voice
    her last album was good



  89. 89

    Firstly, popstars do not usually choose their audience, their audience chooses them. Secondly, it is down to parents to moderate what their kids watch and acts like Rhianna are totally unsuitable for young children. Third, Madonna was dressing in very skimpy clothes over 20 years ago without so much fuss - because parents had more control over their children's behaviour, why should modern stars like Rhianna get stick for something that has been around for a long time. Fourth, male stars use women in their videos and stage shows that wear hardly any clothes but nobody says a motherfucking word, talk about double standards! Finally, these are stage costumes and the spice girls don't have much room to talk as they did a fair bit of sexual gyrating and crotch thrusting themselves, I remember it well. Of course this diatribe has nothing to do with the fact that Mel C has new music out shortly and her use of profanity hardly backs up her supposed image as a concerned parent! Fucking hypocrite!



  90. 90

    Re: KarenJude – Rhianna was in Barbados on HOLIDAY and it has nothing to do with you, her fans or anyone else what she wears or does on her holidays, celebrities are entitled to have a personal life as well, they aren't public property!

  94. 94

    Mel C has a point, but at the same time, if you listen to Rihanna's songs, none of them are really appropriate for young children, so why the hell are parents taking their kids to her concerts in the first place? And her videos are raunchy to match the raunchy songs. And I am speaking as someone who is not even a fan of hers so I can't believe I am actually defending her. I think Perez's worship of her is just sickening considering the reason Rihanna is so raunchy is probably because she has nothing more to offer. She's not a great singer. But I don't like it when people look to entertainers to set the bar for their kids. It seems like these same people who complain about celebrities like RIhanna, are the same ones who have kids that know every word to every one of her songs. You can't parent from your seat people! Get off your keester and actually monitor your kids and take an interest in what they are doing.



  95. 95

    Re: sherybaby619 – You're right! Mel C was very nice to Rihanna and it wasn't an attack, just her opinion. I love how shit starter Perez has already dubbed this a "feud" as well. Wow!



  96. 96

    Re: Merab – You're missing the point. It's not okay for kids to see this kind of stuff and yeah, using sex to sell things is not a phase, it's not going to just pass. Would you want your kids to see this?



  97. 97

    Why are you guys focusing on S&M, its not her only song, she has Man Down, and i dont think she acted like a "whore" or a "slut" or whatever you guys prefer to call Rihanna.. I honestly think that Mel has a point here, but to think of it, I believe that we should never look at something one-sidedly, like we should find some good things too. Her ManDown video is a perfect upbringing emotional song for those people who are being abused in the world right now.. Just a piece of my opinion. Thank you.
