Rihanna’s ‘Russian Roulette’ Sparks Tiffany Evans Twitter Slam
Yesterday (October 21), Evans let loose a Twitter rant, blasting the new song, which hit the ‘net a day earlier. In the tweet, she started off by pointing out that the bold track might have a negative effect on the public, declaring: “Russian Roulette = Suicidal Rate gon sky rocket!”
The 17-year old singer went on to point out that artists have a responsibility to be aware of the messages they’re promoting in their music.
“You gotta watch what u say. Because there are a lot of weak people in the world. They are susceptible to anything so anything you say or do some people actually do listen,” Evans said. “So make sure its nothing bad. Its okay to be deep, but not murder deep.”Evans might have made a valid point early on, but as the tweets went on, things got a little convoluted when she linked the music industry and celebrities to devil worshipers. “Some of your favorite people pretend to worship God but they only do that to save face. Or seem innocent. Satan was head of music in heaven. He uses influential people … to help influence the world,” Evans wrote. Hmmm. OK.
Unfortunately — or fortunately — Evans’ diatribe may have been an unnecessary use of multiple 140 character blasts, since Ne-Yo penned the bold, and now controversial track, not RiRi.
