Performer from Barbados Under Siege {PG 13: Language, Sexual Scenarios} Much Ado about S&Mutting/Tempest in a “B” Cup: Rihanna has Banned Video and seeks mercy on Ex, is Barbados expecting too much?

Feels so good being bad (Oh oh oh oh oh)
There’s no way I’m turning back (Oh oh oh oh oh)
Now the pain is my pleasure cause nothing could measure (Oh oh oh oh oh)

Love is great, love is fine (Oh oh oh oh oh)
Out the box, outta line (Oh oh oh oh oh)
The affliction of the feeling leaves me wanting more (Oh oh oh oh oh)

Cause I may be bad, but I’m perfectly good at it
Sex in the air, I don’t care, I love the smell of it
Sticks and stones may break my bones
But chains and whips excite me

Cause I may be bad, but I’m perfectly good at it
Sex in the air, I don’t care, I love the smell of it
Sticks and stones may break my bones
But chains and whips excite me

Na na na na
Come on, come on, come on
I like it-like it
Come on, come on, come on
I like it-like it
Come on, come on, come on
I like it-like it (Na na na)
Come on, come on, come on
I like it-like it

Love is great, love is fine (Oh oh oh oh oh)
Out the box, outta line (Oh oh oh oh oh)
The affliction of the feeling leaves me wanting more (Oh oh oh oh oh)

  • Part of lyrics for Rihanna’sS&M– this is the same girl who gets a congratulatory Ad from the Barbados Tourism Authority for #1 tunes 5 years in a row, oops! Guess they didn’t check the latest hit, eh?

Long since after I gave up hope for Barbadians to reconsider Rihanna‘s diplomatic status based on her never-ending shenanigans bordering on the publicly pornographic, they only now take up fire-rage as it is known in other islands… Ironically is over a video which for me, is actually tame – even by Rihanna’s standards or lack thereof!

Apparently, people are freaking over how the words “SLUT” and “WHORE” are in close proximity to ‘Barbados‘ in the video, so having actually taken the time to watch “S&M” (now banned by the BBC much to Rihanna’s displeasure) it seems to me she is laughing at the Media in general and if you look closely at the dress, it is made to look like newspapers…

This to me speaks of how Blogs, Social Media and the Dead Tree aficionados have equated her previous antics to that of a prostitute… Why not? Prancing with a midget Dominatrix, pasties over nipples in a UK nightclub, apparently using illegal substances while visiting her homeland (so it is claimed, does not seem that surprising when you consider the case history, really) among many other niceties which eventually caused many to wonder how she kept her Diplomatic Status? Now she makes fun of that in this video!

The worst part in it for me is Perez Hilton pretending to do a canine urination at a fire hydrant while enleashed by Rihanna, however, when you consider in the current day how Lady GaGa almost makes Ri-Ri look nearly as beatific as Mother Teresa then we can only wonder where our standards are? Not satisfied in slamming the video for visual or audio contet, there are also claims of photographic plagiarism, and they do appear to have a valid claim should the older version decide to litigate.

Always knew Perez Hilton was a B*TCH, LBAS!

But let’s go back further, can you recall Millie Jackson? How her raunchiness was put after hours because of tracks like “SLOW TONGUE“?? Then there’s Madonna who had “Justify My Love” in 1989 which had her French Kissing a woman and almost everyone banned it immediately, yet what happened almost 11 years later? Didn’t she do the same thing with Britney Spears on US Television during the American Music Awards? Yet this was acceptable…

Poor Adam Lambert, he did not fare as well when he tried to strike a blow (no pun intended) for Gay Rights when he did the same thing on the same show a few years later, he really took Man to Man and put it in a new light. So it’s ok for gals to sing the joys of Sappho, but if guys wanna be Romeo & Tybalt, forget it! As for Janet Jackson, her wardrobe must always be intact! There was talk of a half-million dollar fine for her Super Bowl “mishap” (C’mon – was it? It didn’t bother me! If she was not to expose that part of her body then why did she have that Shuriken-like object over her nipple?), but who pays it? The Network in question, Janet, or the costume designer?

Who has done worse than Rihanna? How about Rick James‘ “Super Freak“? When he pruriently rolls his tongue over his teeth and ponders about “tasting her” what do you REALLY think he meant? Have you ever seen Grace Jones in full flight? Let’s turn to the 50’s when Elvis Presley was shown only from the waist up, lest Teenagers get the wrong idea about sex?

Look at how the reporters in Rihanna’s video are muzzled in the S&M way, don’t you think this is what she’d love to do with everyone writing about her? This attitude is not limited to Politicians, y’know! To be brutally honest, does the 4th Estate get it right all the time?

Which is Memorex and which is Silicon? You decide!

There are accusations that Rihanna might have had a lesbian affair, even if she did – so what? Rihanna has shown time and again she does not care once she is satisfied, however, there should be benefit of the doubt – some gay model claims a Barbadian singer gave her oral sex… Bajans being the how they are, assume Rihanna is the “guilty” party – but hey, guess what? There’s more than one Barbadian female entertainer out there now… Vita Chambers, Shontelle, Livvi Franc (really from UK, but that’s what she says) among an increasing number of female Bajan talent of whatever persuasion, so how do we know WHICH Bajan gal pumped fur?

Gays & Lesbians in Barbados still has a connotation out here, although not as lethal as St Lucia, Bahamas or Jamaica so while a person may have the right to be what they are, us malicious Bajans not only wanna know if you does bull (male) or wick (female) but we wanna spread it faster than Broadband too! My even daring to speak in defense will be sure to earn quite a few back room and behind my back comments as is the way of Barbados!

After the abuse she got from Chris Brown, anything is possible with Rihanna’s dating habits from thereafter! Why she chooses to forgive him is really her own business… If you recall Dickens’ “Christmas Carol,” the erstwhile partner of Ebenezer and possibly Bob’s great-grandpa? Jacob Marley, he advised if one forgave  transgressions then one is less likely to have chains, metal boxes and other paraphernalia weighing you down! So she has chosen to consider relaxing the order against the boy who made her face look like Play Doh and Silly Putty thrown at each other with great force.

World. War. Hulk... Oy! Can anyone say PROZAC??

What he did was inexcusable even now, but when can we realise that many women out there egg on a guy to the point where he can turn into something he has never really been in his own worst nightmares… Ladies? You need to learn to shut up, when a guy says to back off and you keep nagging? You just may be changing Clark Kent into World War Hulk? Honestly, is it worth it to aggravate a man to the point where he makes Satan look like Captain America?

It has happened and still happens – do not get me wrong, a guy breaking down and lashing a woman is WRONG, even if she is Kerosene on Nitro-glycerine but walk out the house if you can, or just smash a porcelain object away from all humans or animals in lieu of physical brutality! Because if she calls the Police, then all she can say is you cut your own foot trying to restrain your temper…
