I recently saw this picture of Rihanna at some event out in Paris for Fashion Week and something became very apparent to me.  Instead of coming off like the victim in her ordeal with Chris Brown, she seems to be taking the role of a temptress that manipulated the whole situation.  She reminds me of Sharon Stone in that movie Basic Instinct – sexy, conniving and a little deceitful.  People are allowed to have different reactions to traumatic situations, but I’ve seen her go from being semi-provocative to being half-naked most of the time.  It’s like those naked pictures gave her the excuse to “2 Live Crew” it (be As Nasty as She Wants To Be).  The scary thing is that she’s not even 21 yet – it’s only downhill from here. Rumor is that Def Jam is pressuring her to release an album this quarter; maybe because they want to get what they can before she cracks from the pressure.  Forgive me for thinking this, but I think Jay-Z is referring to her in the last verse of “Empire State Of Mind”.  I must admit, she is the epitome of fashionable right now and that allows her to get away with her wearing certain things, but something about this pic above screams out a desperate cry for attention to me.

I think she needs an older mentor that can show her how to be herself minus the self-destruction.  NOT Beyonce, but maybe like a Halle Berry or even Whitney Houston - someone who is beautiful that had their fair share of bad relationships and came out stronger in the end. If not I think she may be headed down the path of one of those jaded starlets that has to disappear from the limelight to get her life back together.  Hopefully someone or something will intervene and she can continue to have a successful career.

Tell me what do you think?
