Liz Jones

What Was Said: In June 2013, Liz Jones, a journalist for the Daily Mail, wrote a scathing op-ed on Rihanna, calling her "pop's poisonous princess," saying that she was a poor influence for promoting "drug-taking and drinking," and claiming that her revealing sense of style "invites rape." She also slammed the singer for having gun tattoos, false nails, and fake hair.

How Ri Responded: Rihanna shot back at Liz directly, posting an unflattering photo of the writer on Instagram and writing, "My money got a bad habit of pissing people off! If you sincerely wanna help little girls more than their own parents do, here’s a toxic tip: don’t be amateur with your articles, you sound bitter!" Rihanna also added that she has got her own "f*ck*d up sh*t to work on" and that she never portrays herself as "perfect."
