Rihanna Responds To S&M Video Controversy
Watch the racy new vid that's got everyone talking, including Katy Perry…
Perez is unsurprised by the furore, saying that the video was made to gain attention and was reminiscent of controversial stars such as Madonna.
He told MTV US:
'My takeaway from this video was that it was very strategically made to get attention and make a point...
"It reminded me of Madonna during the Erotica phase and the Hollywood/American Life phase, both of which were controversial.'
RiRi's buddy Katy Perry joined the debate in typical tongue-in-cheek style, directing a series of hashtag insults at Rihanna, writing: '#slutty #skank #ho #whore #yesyesyes.
Rihanna then acted shocked herself, jokingly tweeting in reply:
"ur a role model, u can't use those words!! #appalled lol!!"
