Rihanna furiously hits back at columnist

ANGRY: Rihanna lashed out on social media

RIHANNA HAS hit back at a columnist who branded her a “poisonous pop princess.”

Writing for the Daily Mail online, Liz Jones slammed Rihanna for not being an appropriate role model for her impressionable young fans.

She included a series of photos the star had posted on her Instagram and Twitter account, the most recent one of the singer in Amsterdam with two giant spliffs in her mouth.

Jones went onto further attack the Grammy award winning artist for the way she dresses, saying it “surely invites rape”.

The columnist added: “I wish she'd stop infecting our high streets with her gun tattoos, her false nails and fake hair, her bogus bad-ass shenanigans that try to portray her as 'real', as 'street', as her own person, as strong and single-minded.’

She went onto say the star should come with a government health warning.

The Diamond singer, notorious for doing and saying what she wants, defended herself by insisting criticism was unfounded because she does not aim to set an example to girls.

In typical Rihanna style she fired shots back at Jones via social network Instagram posting an unflattering image of her critic, accompanied with a lengthy message.

The singer wrote: "If you sincerely wanna help little girls more than their own parents do, here's a toxic tip: don't be amateur with your articles, you sound bitter!

“I don't pretend that I'm like you, i just live... My life!! And I don't know why y'all still act so surprised by any of it!!

“‘Role Model’ is not a position or title that I have ever campaigned for, so chill wit dat!”

Apart from getting personal about Jones’ appearance and her writing ability, a clearly infuriated Rihanna added: “I got my own f****ed up s**t to work on, I'll never portray that as perfect, but for right now it's ME!! Call it what ya want!! Toxic was cute, Poisonous Pop Princess had a nice ring to it, just a lil wordy! And P.S. my first American Vogue cover was in 2011...APRIL!!! #ElizabethAnnJones”.
