Singer turned actress Rihanna has been heavily criticised by Scottish singer Annie Lennox, for not speaking out against domestic abuse. Annie claims that Rhianna could become a great spokesperson for such a serious subject and should help to highlight the issue via her fame.
Lennox explained, "Here is a young woman who has been through domestic violence and she could become a tremendous spokesperson for that issue but the choice is hers. It's not up to anybody else to do that.”
She added, "Of course if she did choose to do that it would be so f**king powerful but it's her personal right to choose it or not. We all have our issues and we have to deal with them in our own way."
Rihanna has recently been criticised for doing a collaboration with her ex boyfriend Chris Brown, who was charged for assaulting Rihanna back in 2009. People have claimed that, by doing the collaboration, she is making it seem ok for domestic violence to take place.
What do you think of Rihanna’s behaviour? Should she speak up more about domestic violence or is she right to move on with her life?
