Rihanna Proves She’s All Woman (of the Year)

Nov 10th, 2009 // 11 Comments

Rihanna was honored as one of Glamour Magazine’s Women of the Year last night, beginning her speech by crying and admitting “I’m PMSed, sorry.” So this is the new face of PMS? A gorgeous, exotic pop star? I guess now guys can stop complaining when their girlfriends get bitchy once a month in the hopes that they turn into Rihanna.

Video of her speech after the jump:


Says Rihanna in her speech:

“I didn’t even know I had to speak; I didn’t know what kind of event it was, I didn’t know anything until a few hours ago. I have to say, Maya Angelou, I love you, but you made this terribly more difficult for me.”

Way to go, Angelou. Hasn’t this poor girl been through enough? Too soon. Too soon.

  1. So I was kind of avoiding getting in on the shitstorm in the comment threads here — I’m assuming that the new writers are by whatever good sense they do have aren’t responding here, or are being told not to — but I mean…you really thought that this was appropriate, let alone funny?

    “I guess now guys can stop complaining when their girlfriends get bitchy once a month in the hopes that they turn into Rihanna.”

    I’m likely not going to read this site anymore either (haha, remember when comments were closed off, so now the only people who comment are people who have a history with the site and won’t fall for any ol’ linkbait, thus ensuring a particularly awkward transition for the new team?) but if y’all start channeling La Roux just to increase your hit count I will actively crusade against anyone ever coming here, as opposed to benignly ignoring it.

    Dear Buzznet, you might want to think about opening up the comments to the general public again — it will be fun to distinguish between the google-bait comments and the content!

  2. @dabug: For what it’s worth, I would much, much rather read Elly Jackson’s thoughts, however warped they are, than whatever the hell this is.

  3. Yeah, at least Elly can manage a decent #slatepitches.

  4. Hey, let’s not get so bogged down in the drab sexism of a PMS joke that we miss how offensive it is to call Rihanna “exotic.” Gross.
