Rihanna vents at story-selling dad

Filed under:

RihannaPA

Now we're on record at Eleven Towers for thinking that Rihanna is an utterly delightful creature, but still we wouldn't want to be on the wrong side of her when she was angry.

But that's exactly where her father Ronald Fenty has found himself after selling stories about his offspring to the press.
Venting her anger in an interview with Vogue, 22-year-old Rihanna said it was "really strange" that her dad had sold stories and photos to the media for money.

She said: "You grow up with your father, you know him, you are part of him, for goodness sake! And then he does something so bizarre that I can't begin to wrap my mind around it.

"You hear these horror stories about people going behind people's backs and doing strange things, but you always think, 'Not my family. My father would never do that to me.'"

And Ri-Ri (real name Robyn Fenty) said she was particularly disappointed with her dad's reaction to Chris Brown's horrific assault on her.

She said: "My dad went to the press and just told them a bunch of lies, because he hadn't talked to me after... that whole thing.

"He never called to find out how I was doing, if I was alive, nothing. He just never called. He went straight to the press and got a cheque."

Doesn't sound like he'll be getting a Christmas card this year then.

At least she had a laugh last week when that saucy pic of Chris Brown got leaked.

What do you reckon? Is he a bad dad? Comment below if you wish...

Google Face-Offs, Spring 2011

Why these two?
They're the two hottest pop stars on the planet right now, albeit with dramatically different fanbases.

So who wins?
Looking back over the last month or so, Gaga only really manages to eclipse Bieber fever when she arrived at the Grammys in a perspex egg.

Google Face-Offs, Spring 2011

Why these two?
To be honest we feel a bit churlish for piutting these two delightful young ladies against one another - but the world needs to know which English rose actress rules supreme.

So who wins?
Emma is tracking constantly above Keira, with a peak when she won that Elle Style Icon award. But that's probably the way that shy-and-retiring Keira likes it.

Google Face-Offs, Spring 2011

Why these two?
One is the all-kickin', all-punchin' star of The Karate Kid and the other is his musical hair-whippin' sister. Let's not be naive and pretend they're not competitive themselves!

So who wins?
Jaden had an early lead when his movie came out, but WIllow made up for lost time as she shot to tween-pop stardom. interestingly they may have settled down to the same level now. In other words, it ain't over by a long chalk.

Google Face-Offs, Spring 2011

Why these two?
They're both new on the scene, they both have low, low firnges and they both dress like "urban" panto dames. Isn't that enough reason to make them face-off?

So who wins?
English lass Jessie is the surprise winner, considering that American Nicky has been around a bit longer and built up a bit of a following among urban music fans. Maybe she needs more Autotune like Jessie?

Google Face-Offs, Spring 2011

Why these two?
They're not traditional adversaries we'll grant you, and they don't have any history of beef - but by chance they happened to unveil their new haircuts on the same day.

So who wins?
Jennifer might have the most iconic hair of the 1990s, but Bieber leaves her standing when it comes to Google searches in 2011.

Google Face-Offs, Spring 2011

Why these two?
They're long-time enemies and Kerry has made a bit of a comeback lately, so let's see if she's gained much ground on the artist formerly known as Jordan.

So who wins?
Katie of course. But the interesting thing is that they seem to have peaks of interest at roughly the same time - and we know there haven't been stories about them both. Weird!

Google Face-Offs, Spring 2011

Why these two?
Unless you've been living in a cave, you'll know they've both been the subject of a lot of media interest over the last month - Charlie because of his massive drugs-and-porn-stars benders and Li-Lo for an alleged theft.

So who wins?
It's six of one and half a dozen of the other. We reckon Lindsay's the better long-term bet - but we wouldn't rule out something spectacular (or perhaps tragic) from Charlie. Let's just hope they never get together for a night out!

Google Face-Offs, Spring 2011

Why these two?
As Katie Price attempts to rid herself of her second husband, we thought it'd be interesting to see how he compares in the Google stakes to ex-hubby Pete.

So who wins?
Pete is comfortably ahead, apart from a brief peak for Alex back in October last year. Perhaps Alex will take heart from the result though as it might mean there's (celeb) life after KP for him too!

Google Face-Offs, Spring 2011

Why these two?
Because they never tire of bickering with each other on Twitter, despite the greater world's almost complete indifference towards their faux feud.

So who wins?
Piers has well and truly pwned his lordship - thanks no doubt to his high-profile new job presenting a chat show on US channel CNN.

Google Face-Offs, Spring 2011

Why these two?
They're supposed to be pals, but we keep reading of supposed snubs to each other - so we thought we'd let Google Trends settle things between the two pop hotties.

So who wins?
Katy's stepped things up over the past year, with the help of hubby Russ, but Rihanna's definitely got the edge.
