Rihanna Gets Her Revenge
It's been a big week for getting naked in R&B circles. Everyone has been at it, and by 'everyone' we mean Rihanna and Cassie . The two singers have become involved in an unofficial battle to see who can get the most naked.
The media attention from the pics has caused frenzy worldwide, with more stars expected to start jumping on the bandwagon. Nude piccies of Lenny Kravitz have also popped up, although he admits to posting the photos online himself... uh kinda creepy.
Cassie got the ball rolling last week when topless photos were slathered all over the internet. The singer claims that someone had 'hacked' into her computer and stolen the photos. Others suggested it was probably her publicist who was doing all the hacking and leaking. While Cassie initially feigned outrage, she didn't seem that concerned in an twitter: “At the end of the day breasts are breasts, mine weren't the first you've seen and they won't be the last ... people need to grow up”.
A few days later the whole Cassie topless thing was pushed aside when the long-rumoured naked pictures of Rihanna emerged online. These were a little more tasteful and to be honest, were not that shocking when compared to some of Rih’s ‘sex on legs’ costumes worn on stage. But rumour has it, that it’s not a case of our ‘Good Girl Gone Bad’ posting the nudie rudies, but more like the shifty work of angry ex Chris Brown.
Brown’s reps deny him having anything to do with the leak, what a surprise!
Guilty or not, Rihanna has been quick to even the score the best way a pop star can: post a song online telling the world that he’s an ass! The song, suitably called “Silly Boy”, tells of a woman who will never go back to her ex who doesn’t know how to treat a lady. The lyrics strike a few low blows as Rih sings: “People make mistakes but I just think your ass is fake.” Ouch.
She’s not working alone either, with rapper Kanye West lending a helping hand in the smack down of Brown. Kanye was the one who originally posted Rih’s song on his website, and has stood by her side since the alleged bashing in February.
‘Silly Boy’ was posted only one day after the leakage of Rih’s pics, but hell, why not take advantage of the publicity and turn it back while also making a buck? Ahh the ultimate revenge!
Tyring not to be outdone by Rih, more pics of a VERY naked Cassie appeared online later that week. This time round we got to see, well, a whole lot more. Let’s just say her nipples aren't the only thing that's pierced. Will Cassie be able to outdo the scandal of Brown and Rih? We’re pretty doubtful.
Oh and just encase you were wondering if Rih would ever go back to Brown, um no! The lyrics “I said I’m not coming back…I don’t want you no more…she’s over you” pretty much sums it up.
