Is Jay-Z Being Too Protective of Rihanna?

This week Rihanna took over Mariah's crown as Venus Breeze “Celebrity Legs of a Goddess” and made a showing on TRL to promote her new album, Good Girl Gone Bad. Obviously she's in high demand which may explain why Jay-Z -- who discovered her, signed her and acts as her mentor -- has been screening potential suitors: "He's very protective. Jay has my best interests in mind. If it's a good guy I know Jay won't shut him down. But if he's not, Jay will be like, 'No, no, no.'" Sounds like he's just trying to protect her, but considering she is 19, is it a bit much?

I WONDER IF JAY-Z AND BEYONCE IS REALLY AN ITEM. IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN A MYSTERY. HE HAS HUNG OUT WITH HER HERE AND THERE BUT A SERIOUS RELATIONSHIP I NEVER SAW THAT. I DONT THINK JAY-Z AND RIHANNA WILL BE AN ITEM RIGHT NOW. SHE HAS SO MUCH MORE TO LEARN ABOUT THE BUSINESS AND BECOMING INTO HER OWN. THE MATTER OF FACT AT BEST I THINK IF JAY-Z TEAM ARRANGE OCCASIONALLY FOR A NICE CLEAN CUT GUY TAKE RIHANNA OUT FOR DANCING AND DINNER UNTIL SHE IS ABOUT 25YEARS, THIS MAY SERVE AS A PROTECTION BECAUSE THOSE GUYS OUT THERE CAN DO A NUMBER ON HER IF SHE START ACCEPTING DATES ON HER OWN. LOOK WHAT HAPPENED TO LAURYN HILL, THERE WAS NO ONE WHO COULD STOP HER WHEN THAT MARLYN GUY FINISHED WITH HER SHE HAD NO MIND LEFT,,, A GREAT TALENT AND VOICE GONE TO WASTE...HE RIPPED HER TO SHREDDS YOU DONT EVEN SEE IT COMIN' THE MATTER OF FACT IT MIGHT BE GOOD IF JAY MARRIED RIHANNA FOR PROTECTION LIKE CELINE DIONN HUSBAND DID HER,, HE JUST TOOK HER BECAUSE IF HE HADNT WE WOULD NOT KNOW CELINE AS WE DO TODAY. GOOD JOB JAY-Z GOOD LOOKING OUT OH AND BEYONCE?? SHE WILL BE FINE, SHE WILL FIND SOMEONE.

rihanna is really pretty and no wonder there are so many guys after her. but hes not her father, he can have is own opinion but he cant restrict her from doing waht she wants. she needs to find it out on her own.

Has no one heard that Jay cheated on Beyonce with Rihanna?? That's where Beyonce got all those angry songs from on BDay! That's old news, I heard that last summer, and I think it's true! I LOVE Jay-Z but he's a cheater.

i hope its that he thinks of her like a little sister! in that case, then i don't see much problem. when i was younger i had some older guy friends that always watched my back! i hope its not in a way that he's going to hurt beyonce.

That would make me nuts, but if she's cool with it, then whatever. It's her life. Can't stand Jay-Z though. He's so full of himself.

That's sweet but (personally) I would probably be annoyed by it.

Actually cameron diaz's has the nicest legs--not naming any models. And Beyonce should look out! Her song "ring the alarm" was how she was feeling, but didn't relate it publicly to the "jay-z and Rihanna" relastionship. Unreliable sources though hehe.When someone spends a long time with a person a bond forms which can lead to other bonds.

It would only be creepy if he didn't let her date at all.

I think it's ok, as long as Rihanna's fine with it, which she seems to be. And she does say that Jay-Z doesn't have a problem with good guys-he's just keeping her away from finding a K-Fed-esque kind of guy.

NO WAY! He's just trying to stop her from being another Brit, Lindsay or Paris. Someone definetly should look out for her and not just on the guy front!

she's got her some hips and thighs!!! maybe that's the "goddess" look they're going for...bc mariah sure has hips and thighs as well. anyhow, not a fan of rihanna per say, but it's nice to see she's going for a different look even if it might not entirely work.

i hate it when people compare beyonce to rihanna. beyonce is overrated and rihanna, as far as originality goes, is better than beyonce. i know beyonce's voice is better blah blah but her bday album flopped. and aren't they in different labels? beyonces got her dad as a manager and rihanna has jayz? and no offense but why would rihanna be attracted to JAY-Z? (i dont even know why beyonce is) anyway i like rihanna more than beyonce because ever since beyonce ditched destinys child, she got annoying

She can't sing worth crap, and Jay Z annoys me. I wonder how B feels about this. :o

...Yeah, I bet he wants to be her daddy alright. I think there's something a little fishy about this duo. Call me a conspiracy theorist, but in my 32 yrs I've learned that very few men are that "vested" without more a personal interest (and i dont mean a financial interest). But what do I know?
