Rihanna Defends (Man Down) Video: 'I’m a Rock Star With No Kids'

Rihanna will not let people knock her new “Man Down” video. The 23-year-old singer shows female empowerment in her latest music video by gunning down a rapist — however, not everyone sees it that way.

The Parents Television Council has taken a stance against the video, blasting the singer for a “cold, calculated execution of murder,” via TMZ.

They also maintain that shooting a rapist in a crowded train station isn’t exactly justice.

Industry Ears, another watchgroup, also took offense to RiRi’s new clip, indicating, “If Chris Brown shot a woman in his new video and BET premiered it, the world would stop. Rihanna should not get a pass… ”

But Rihanna has taken a strong stance on her latest work, defending the video and its artistic interpretation.

“I’m a 23 year old rockstar with NO KIDS! What’s up with everybody wantin me to be a parent? I’m just a girl, I can only be your/our voice!” she said on Twitter.

And the singer didn’t stop there. She followed up her strong opinion with a series of Tweets defending the music video and the industry:

• “Cuz we all know how difficult/embarrassing it is to communicate touchy subject matters to anyone especially our parents!”

• “And this is why!Cuz we turn the other cheek! U can’t hide your kids from society,or they’ll never learn how to adapt!This is the REAL WORLD!”

• “WeLOVEManDown”

• “The music industry isn’t exactly Parents R Us! We have the freedom to make art, LET US! Its your job to make sure they dont turn out like US”
