Rihanna Hair: New Blonde Do for ELLE
Courtesy Rihanna; PictureGroup

We all know Rihanna can Talk That Talk, but who knew she was a Gossip Girl too?

When the singer debuted a sneak peek at her new platinum do (which she’ll sport on an upcoming cover of ELLE), we couldn’t help but think of another towheaded trouble maker: Taylor Momsen.

With that chunky fringe and stained pout (not to mention that major ‘tude!), Rihanna is the spitting image of a good Upper East Sider gone bad.

But while the look may not be permanent (as we all know, she’s quite the quick change artist), it’s not exactly temporary either: “bleach + weave” she Tweeted a curious fan. Tell us: Who looks better with a platinum fringe?

I think it’s ridiculous to gaerrd pop stars as role models. Rihanna has developed her own style and a unique reputation for herself. We must remember that what she does is still to sell records, and she is in no way obligated to be the one people look up to, and frankly, she has done nothing to deserve that tag. Being in the eye of the public doesn’t automatically make you perfect, or likeable as a person, and being a public figure shouldn’t limit how she lives. Her sole demographic is not preteens and teenagers, and she doesn’t have to cater for them. If you think that she is a bad role-model, then just don’t take any notice of what she does. Contrary to popular belief, it’s quite easy.
