Lena Dunham Isn't a Member of the Rihanna Fan Club
The 'Girls' actress disapproves of RiRi's lifestyle -- and that guy she may or may not be dating again.
Let it be known: Lena Dunham isn't on Team Rihanna.
Dunham portrays a reckless 20-something unsure about love on Girls, but when it comes to the topic of real-life romance and role models, the actress has a strong choice of words regarding Rihanna's wild behavior and reconciliation with Chris Brown.
"[Being a role model] is amazing. It's an amazing thing and it's, like, it's a platform that you have to take seriously," she told Alec Baldwin in an interview on his WNYC podcast Here's the Thing. "Which is why sometimes it's like I used to be really into Rihanna, that pop star, and then it's like again, I don't want to ever throw stones from my glass house, but I follow her on Instagram and I just think about how many little girls beyond what I could even comprehend are obsessed with Rihanna. Like you know, she left Barbados, she's had this amazing career, she's won a Grammy."
And just like many others, the Golden Globe winner gave her two cents on RiRi and Brown's eyebrow-raising reunion.
"She's talented. And then she gets back together with Chris Brown and posts a million pictures of them smoking marijuana together on a bed," Dunham continued. "And it cracks my heart in half in a way that makes me feel like I'm 95 years old."
salacious photos to cuddling courtside at Los Angeles Lakers games, the on-again, off-again couple has raised eyebrows since their infamous domestic violence drama in 2009.
While they've shut down speculation of a rekindled romance, RiRi recently ignited the rumor mill once more with the release of the cover of her latest single "Stay," which features a mystery man who bears an uncanny resemblance to Brown.
Despite outsiders' opinions, Brown remains dedicated to making things work with Rihanna.
"Me and her have history, and me and her are definitely always going to be best of friends,” he said during an interview with Los Angeles’ Power 106 radio station. “We’re working on our friendship now."
