Lena Dunham voices her opinion on Rihanna’s Instagram pics!

“It cracks my heart in half,” reveals the Girls star...

She’s made headlines with her saucy Instagram posts time and time again, making no apologies for the provocative pics, but it appears Rihanna’s antics have become a concern for ‘Girls’ creator Lena Dunham, who says the pop star’s behaviour “cracks my heart in half.”

The Golden Globe-winning actress is worried that RiRi’s raunchy pics will have a negative impact on her young fans and are something they shouldn’t be trying to emulate.

“[Fame is] an amazing thing and it's a platform that you have to take seriously,” the 26-year-old said during an interview on Alec Baldwin’s ‘Here’s the Thing’ podcast earlier this week.

“I used to be really into Rihanna, that pop star, and then it's like again, I don't want to ever throw stones from my glass house, but I follow her on Instagram and I just think about how many little girls beyond what I could even comprehend are obsessed with Rihanna.”

“Like, you know, she left Barbados, she's had this amazing career, she's won a Grammy. . . She's talented,” Dunham continued.

“And then she gets back together with Chris Brown and posts a million pictures of them smoking marijuana together on a bed. And it cracks my heart in half in a way that makes me feel like I'm 95 years old.”

As for Lena, she says that since launching her hit TV show, she’s “had to become more conscious about what I say and what I promote, not in a way that stifles me, but just in a way where I realize now that there are 17-year-old girls who come up to me and tell me that the show means a lot to them.”

Wonder what RiRi has to say about this one!
