A feud between dysfunctional exes Chris Brown and Rihanna erupted last week after Brown supposedly dissed Rihanna in a recent “Theraflu” remix. And, now, Rihanna’s Def Jam mentor, Russell Simmons, has allegedly joined in on the fight and thrown a subliminal diss Brown’s way.
Simmons recently took to his Global Grind website to write a piece about Rihanna titled, ahem, “Get Off Rihanna’s D—.”
In the piece, Simmons discusses the double standard between men and women in the industry (and really in general) when displaying or indulging in their sexuality, and he uses Rihanna and her high-profile relationships and sexual trysts as an example.
“There have been a lot of artists recently talking about ‘good girl gone bad,’ Rihanna. As far as I’m concerned, I don’t see why everyone has their panties up in a bunch. It’s just that she is out there allegedly f—kin’ the rockstars of her dreams and you out there f—kin’ groupies. You can’t be mad that she was seen walking out of Ashton Kutcher’s house late one night, cause you know if you were seen walking out of Adriana Lima’s house late one night, you would be in the studio the next day rapping about it. I mean, you all got like 50 girls in your videos drooling over you and you dissing Rihanna? I can’t blame a girl for being independent, having fun and living her life the way she wants to. I am certainly not condoning indiscriminate sex, but don’t get mad cause the girl…” wrote Simmons.
Simmons goes on to recall the numerous female fans that artists like Run-DMC, the Beastie Boys, LL Cool J, Public Enemy had sex with on a regular bases and claims that Rihanna’s trysts pale in comparison to theirs.
Simmons ends his article by saying, “I love you guys, and this certainly ain’t a diss, but I gotta keep it real.”
However, Simmons’ piece comes fresh off the heels of Brown’s alleged diss towards Rihanna, in which he raps, “Don’t f— with my old b—– it’s like a bad fur/ Every industry n—- done had her/ Trick or treat like a pumpkin just to smash her/ B—— breaking codes, but I’m the password.”
Though Brown denied the diss was about Rihanna, the “Birthday Cake” singer went on to unfollow him on Twitter.
