Rihanna Man Down Video Controversy

Rihanna released the video for her single “Man Down” off her latest album LOUD.  In the video Rihanna was sexually assaulted by a man in which she gunned down in the video.  The Parent’s Television Council is outraged by the video stating it is a “cold, calculated execution of murder”

Rihanna reponds to the critics via Twitter:

I’m a 23-year-old rock star 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! Cuz we all know how difficult/embarrassing it is to communicate touchy subject matters to anyone especially our parents!  And this is why!Cuz we turn the other cheek! U can’t hide your kids from society,or they’ll never learn how to adapt!This is the REAL WORLD!  The music industry isn’t exactly Parents R Us! We have the freedom to make art, LET US! Its your job to make sure they dont turn out like US.”
