BLOGGER LABELS RIHANNA “PLUS SIZE” IN BODY-SHAMING HEADLINE

RIHANNA

Singer, actress, clothing and shoe designer, perfumer and humanitarian Rihanna Fenty has now been labeled plus-size for whatever reason. The past few months it seems people have felt the need to body shame her. Most notably blogger Sandra Rose is the latest to stamp Rihanna with the label of plus-size.

During her latest promotional tour stop for her upcoming film “Valerian and The City of a Thousand Planets” in Los Angeles the star wore a Giambatista Valli Couture gown.

Sandra Rose a blogger notorious for using salacious content/titles to drive traffic to her site, labeled the recap of the movie premiere  ‘Plus Size Singer Rihanna Stuns at ‘Valerian’ Premiere’.

The Rihanna Navy didn’t take to kindly to the post and dear old Sandra’s mentions were in shambles (po lil tink tink). to which she quickly followed up with another post to address the controversy.

In her post ‘fanMAIL: Rihanna is Not Plus-Size – You are BIGGER Than Her’ Sandra uses the bs “fashion industry” standard approach to justify her comments.

“If Rihanna is not plus-size, what is she? Let’s examine the fashion industry standard for plus-size models. According to PLUS Model magazine, plus size is defined as sizes 10-14; super-size is sizes 16 and up.

At 5-ft-9 and about 160 pounds, Rihanna fits the category of plus-size. She’s still a beautiful young lady, but as Sir Mix-a-Lot would say, “Red beans and rice didn’t miss her.”

A bit harsh and ignorant to say the least. As a plus size woman I’m sure we can agree that Rihanna is not Plus Size. She has however, gained a few pounds. So when did she become fat, or even over weight & if she was, what is the big damn deal???

Whoa! LOL Jilly from Philly wastes no time… In a recent interview with Essence Magazine Jill explains that she only dates men for 6 months! Hey, I can understand that… I mean she has been married once, then engaged and now she’s currently single. At this point I’m sure she knows exactly what she wants!

With her most recent role in the Lifetime Movie “With This Ring” which I might add was really a good movie. It had me thinking about my relationships and what I really want out of them as well. On the subject of her role Jill Scott says…

“The movie made us all think about what we’re doing. For Regina and I, the two single girls, we really thought about what it is we want,”

Now what does she want? Jill’s character in the movie feels pressured to “complete” their lives by getting married within a year. She says she usually knows when she’s met someone special after about six months of dating.

“I’m older now so I see a little bit better than I did before. My longest relationships now are about nine months,” she said. “Actually, now it’s grown to six months. There’s no need for me to waste my time or anybody else’s. I know by then. If you make it over the six month hump, you have done something. I must really like you.”

Scott says that in order for a relationship to work, in addition to really liking the man in her life, she has to really like herself.

“You have to be who you are and you have to genuinely love who you love in order to have a lasting marriage,” she advises. “Getting married is one thing; staying married is something else.”

Great Advice…
