UPDATE: Rihanna’s pal Katy Perry was not at the strip club. Katy’s publicist told us the following via email: “Katy was in Los Angeles Saturday night then Cancun promoting Smurfs Sun-Tues so that story is wrong.” Minutes ago, Perry herself tweeted, “Ermm… I was in LA Saturday night… Should I be proud or offended I wasn’t invited.” So RiRi was riding solo.
Rihanna is surely nightmares for parents of young girls. Who knows, maybe she emphasizes her womanhood and sexuality as some sort of post-feminism feminist thing. Or maybe she doesn’t give a shit about that and does what she does because sex sells. We’re not here to get into the motivations and deeper social Meaning of her persona, because, look at that headline, we’re guilty of the “sex sells” thing, after all. So yes, Rihanna and Katy Perry went to the strip club this weekend. Of course they did. We can’t believe they haven’t done this sooner. According to TMZ, Rihanna visited King of Diamonds strip club in Miami Sunday (April 21) and made it rain to the tune of $8,000 over a span of two-and-a-half hours. Apparently it started as a scouting trip to see how the ladies dance to her music. Katy Perry reportedly joined the festivities later in the night. News!
Anyway, head below to watch RiRi make it rain on a stripper’s booty. (If this depresses you, Grimes just posted a Tumblr manifesto on sexism in music, so there’s your palate cleanser.)
