Rihanna Too Controversial
04 Apr 2012
Superstar Rihanna has opened up about her music videos after a number of US pressure groups have called for a ban after her 'We Found Love' video was said to endorse rape, and her video for her single 'Man Down' incited violence and murder.
Rihanna recently spoke to Radio Times and said “I never do anything to get banned, never do it for controversy. It's always just honest and at times I just go a little too far for some... "When I make a music video, it's a piece of art. It's four minutes to make a visual, for people to understand the message in the song."
The “Talk That Talk” singer has just been announced as the headliner for the BBC Radio 1 Hackney Weekend 2012, on the finale of the two day spectacular, taking place 23rd- 24th June 2012 at Victoria Park, London.
You can also catch Riri on Sunday 8th July 2012 at the Barclaycard Wireless Festival which takes place at Hyde Park, London along with pop supremo Calvin Harris, “Do It Like A Dude” star Jessie J, Rizzle Kicks, J. Cole, Pitbull, Cher Lloyd and many more popular acts.
