It looks like we arenât the only ones who are fed up with Chris Brown and Rihanna, Girls star/creator, Lena Dunham, has spoken out about the Rihanna/Brown drama and she isnât holding back!
The star slammed Rihanna during an interview on Alec Baldwinâs Hereâs the Thing podcast on Jan 21, 2013. According to Us Weekly, the rising starlet said, â[Fame is] an amazing thing and itâs a platform that you have to take seriously. Which is why sometimes, itâs like â¦ I used to be really into Rihanna, that pop star, and then itâs like â again, I donât want to ever throw stones from my glass house â 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.â
She added: âLike, you know, she left Barbados, sheâs had this amazing career, sheâs won a Grammy. . . Sheâs talented. 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 Iâm 95 years old,â reports Us Weekly.
To prove Dunhamâs point even more, the singer recently posted pictures to her Instagram account while taking a break from rehearsals for her world-wide tour, which showed the singer smoking on a suspicious (yet very obvious) hand-rolled âcigaretteâ. Rihanna captioned the picture ââYou a real n****, then p**ck wit me! #GOLD,â reports the Daily Mail UK.
The star empathized with the singer and said that she âhad 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.â
Dunham has openly expressed her distain for the couple in the past. When Rihanna and brown first released their (very) sexually explicit collaborations (you know, when they were âjust friendsâ). Dunham took to Twitter to express her distaste for the direction of their relationship. She wrote, âRihanna and Chris Brownâs new duets make me want to go hide under Gloria Steinemâs bed for 72 hours.â
Dunham: 2. Rihanna: 0.
