Photos of Rihanna in London As She Defends Her Naked Photos 2009-11-29 08:00:00

Rihanna Defends Her Leaked Naked Photos — Refreshingly Honest or TMI?

Rihanna waved to photographers as she arrived in London on Friday before her performance on The X Factor tonight. She's been on a heavy promotional tour surrounding the release of R Rated, which has included opening up about her relationship with Chris Brown.

During a recent radio interview, she confronted another difficult moment this year when some naked photos she took of herself leaked. She called the experience "humiliating and embarrassing" especially since it was right before Mother's Day, but she also defended her actions saying, "If you don't send your boyfriend naked pictures, then I feel bad for him." Some fans may disagree with Rih's opinion on this personal matter but what do you think of her statements about the nude photos — refreshingly honest or TMI?

Well, Sham, clearly people do readily "f*ck" women over, so it isn't a ridiculous assumption. As the saying goes "hope for the best, but plan for the worst."

You're right jkat, it's just so infuriating that women have to fear that the people they love and trust will SO willingly f*ck them over even if they did nothing wrong--that betrayal should be assumed, treated like a guarantee.

Sham... The reason I get upset with the girls is because they are the ones who put themselves in this position in the first place. Unlike other situations of sexual exploitation or victimization, these girls made the distinct choice to open themselves up to this type of situation. I think young women today need to learn about self-preservation and not automatically jump to the idea that they are a victim in every situation. Yes, some d*ck boy sent those pictures out, but the woman should have also had the foresight to protect herself by not giving him an opportunity to do so in the first place. In a digital world *all* people need to be taught to think 10 steps ahead about where the content they post or send may end up.On a similar note, teenagers also need to be made aware of the fact that taking or disseminating such pictures of themselves or others may (and should) have criminal repercussions because they are often child pornography. What consenting adults do is their business (although I personally think disseminating such pictures without written consent of the subject should be illegal), but I am so sick of these "adults" acting surprised and expressing their "hurt and humiliation" when these pictures end up online. The only way to prevent this is not to do it in the first place...not to blindly trust someone else with your reputation and (potentially)your livelihood.

I'm impressed by how knowledgegable all of the posters are about incredibly intimate details of her life. Considering the GIRLS are the ones that everyone flips out on and not the asshole guys that humiliate them for doing something personal, I'd get a little bit irritated too. Naughty picture gifts are not all that rare, it happens in relationships and is not in any way tied to abuse or being a role model.

I wouldn't have judged her for taking naked photos for private use - but then she just had to go and attack women who choose to keep their clothes on didn't she?Relationships can go wrong - those photos could end up on the internet, or plasted all over your school or office (it's happened before). I can't believe she's encouraging girls to do this.

I admire the honesty, but agree that it probably wasn't the smartest comment to pick in a role model for young girls' sense. Gotta pick one or the other.
