Screen Shot 2015-07-03 at 07.51.13

Earlier in the week the hashtag: #BeingFemaleInNigeria trended worlwide. The trending topic which which caught the attention of news outlets like CNN, BBC, Huffington Post & BBC sought to highlight the everyday experiences of gender discrimination against women in Nigeria.

According to BBC, it started at a  small book club meeting in Abuja on Sunday. Its members were discussing Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s “We Should All Be Feminists” and then started to describe their own challenges and experiences. They discussed taking the discussion to a larger group and on Monday, a member of the book club Florence Warmate started tweeting her thoughts with the hashtag #BeingFemaleinNigeria, and soon it became a worldide trending topic on all media platforms not just Twitter.

But one thing I noticed from the tweets was that men seemed to take a lot of offence to it. When I set out my own tweets using the hashtag, the negative responses were all from men. So it comes as no surprise that the guys have responded with theirs: #BeingMaleInNigeria…

Rihanna-Bitch-Better-Have-My-Money

So this morning while revelling in the awesomeness that is Rihanna’s Bitch Better Have My Money video [Watch HERE], a friend brought it to my attention that this video and possibly single were directed at her accountant. Back in 2009/2010 there were stories floating around the internet that one of the biggest pop stars in the world was nearly flat broke! I didn’t believe the story until last year when it was reported on NY Daily News, that Rihanna was suing her accountant firm Berdon LLP.

Rihanna Is A Stone Cold Murderer, Nekkid & Covered In Blood In Brand New “B*tch Better Have My Money” Video

Rihanna is a sexy, stone cold murderer in the highly anticipated visuals for her “B**tch Better Have My Money” single. The 7 minute video which is more like a short film, dropped less than 30 minutes ago.

And it is scary! The video which the Bajan pop princess directed herself has nudity, violence, weapons and of course swear words…and  it all ends with a stark nekkid Rihanna covered in the blood of the people she’s just killed! To be fair they did owe her a lot of money.

Many are going to say she is glorifying violence in this video & to be fair she does. Because she makes being a stone cold murderer look so sexy and glamourous.

Watch the explicit, Not safe for work video after the jump…
