Hip-Hop Rumors: Russell Simmons Defends Rihanna’s Right To Sleep With As Many “Rockstars” As She Wants


In a new blog, former Def Jam head and music mogul Russell Simmons has come out swinging and is defending Rihanna’s right to sleep with whomever she wants without it ended up in a rap song. Last week, both Chris Brown and Drake allegedly dissed Rihanna in two separate tracks, and basically called her out as an industry jumpoff. Uncle Russell did not appreciate that very much and says these rappers need to stop being the pot calling the kettle black.

Read the full letter below:

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*ckin’ the rockstars of her dreams and you out there fuckin’ 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…

Remember, I was a manager once and I have seen these types of young men on the road. I was with Run-DMC, the Beastie Boys, LL Cool J, Public Enemy, Whoodini and saw all of the girls after the show line up outside the dressing rooms. I mean, Whoodini even wrote a song about, “I Am A H*e” and went on to rap, “I rock three different girls after every show.” So, I know how this shit works. You all got 10 times as many girls as Rihanna has men, and you know that. I love you guys, and this certainly ain’t a diss, but I gotta keep it real.

    Well, its something most men dont like to analize. Thats her choice really and truly. doesnt matter far or un fair when women sleep with man men they are looked at very badly. Then again, based on what I see and hear so many men loves hoes. I hear it the songs, in the videos girls dressed like street workers and I guess its cool.  I know so of my friends in there 30’s who still put there item in any girl. To me thats sick, but for most guys its cool to just lay with anyone.

    • immackulate

      MEN and ANALIZE (llamf) dont belong in the same sentence but i ANALYZE and overstand what you meant

  • immackulate

    Hustle Simmons came at this the wrong damn way.  Dont he have 2 daughters his mf self.  TRUE MF INDEED – drake and chris brown both look like scorned women for mentioning that shyt in music form … but Hustle should have got on them niggahs for being HYPROCRITES but the underlying theme should have been SAFE SEX, ABSTINANCE etc…

    he prolly just putting his bid so he can hit too LOL

  • Romia Blue

    I feel what Russell saying but unfortunately that’s the double standard women are trapped to adhere to. We can’t do what dudes do point-blank-period. And since black women are the fastest growing number in new HIV/AIDS cases, AND she just ended up in the hospital about a week ago, I just need chick to slow down before she ends up on a reality show trying to kick more than her weed habit. #IJS

    • immackulate

      it is a double standard of sorts BUT its also USE to be the Law Of The Land and it’s been going on since Day1w/ Lamech in Genesis – even Solomon had 1000 total concubines/wives (with no formal engagement, ceremony, no nothing) and was considered to be one of the Greatest Kings then look at Mary Magdalene and how she was treated … “niggahs” was literally laying with her then pulling they pants up to run to Jesus/Yeshua/The Messiah to go snitch on her and her hellish ways lol – GOD once told DAVID that if his wives and concubines were not enough than he would give him more.
      Then Jesus came with his teachings and condemned (lol) man to one woman in marriage and the rest is MONOGAMOUS HISTORY

      women are born virtuous and men are born as conquerors…

      • mike malarkey

        yes they did lol thats what use to make the day go by

  • H. U. S.

    Here’s the problem with this particular situation, Ri-ri has a lot of young women that look up to her…Unfortunately it’s like Romia Blue said, it’s a ”double standard” taking place here!

    I know women may disagree, but this is the truth on the situation. A good friend of mine once said:

    ”A man is like a master key, if you put it in different locks(no matter the quantity); and turn it to open the lock, then it’s done its job as a master key.

    If you have a lock that’s opened by any/many keys, then it’s a shytty lock!”

    • Romia Blue

      ROTFL…this lock and key metaphor has taken a completely different turn in my brain.
      she gonna strip her tumblers lmao!

    •  Hahahahahaha man I GOTTA use this shit sometime……

  • Guest

    Russell got mad model hoes that are built like Rihanna…he just wants his turn

  • mrgibson

    The letter is the truth (to people with brains).  Dudes act all hurt and childish when they found out females (usually one they’re trying to get at/with) are getting it in like they are or with people besides them.  That’s one of the signs that a dude is bitch made at heart.

  • junj03

    let rihanna live. i mean i would bang her as well so….

  • johnblacksad

    Uncle Russ wants a piece

  • Nemesis_Enforcer

    He has a point though. She getting plugged by stars while they plugging ZERO’s lol

    • immackulate

      plugged by stars and plugged by zero’s … hell both of’em carry and transmit DISEASES

      dont take what RUSSELL says as law

  • TruthHurtsDontIt

    Russell needs to enjoy counting his bread and waking up to blondes in bed because he has a tendency to just jump into things he needs to just stfu in regards to.

    I remember his old azz was out tryna draw up support for the Ground Zero mosque,,, the fukk part of the game is that for a retired mogul??

  • ccwaterbound32

    mane ain’t nobody judging that brizzle! but a h#e is a h#e! i swear to god! if you tell somebody about themselves they all upset and angry want to fight, because they lil way of life is considered normal among the majority of people who actually live they lives in that fashion unfortunately in american society and culture hyper sexuality is force fed unto young girls and boys through television internet, movies and video games hell even f**kin comic books got cartoons with cleavage and fat azzes! maybe im just old fashioned, but i aint fixin to get all mad at her either! i mean if she think being a h@e is cool than that’s her business. See if I was to meet that broad today in real life i wouldn’t give her ANY KIND OF RESPECT id give her a simple hi and bye! why? because i was raised that if a woman carries herself respectful than she is to be appreciated and taken seriously but if she carries herself loosely than you shouldn’t pay her any mind. and ladies if you really want a man’s attention than try not to reveal so much if you give a man something to imagine he’ll come at you even more that man will do everything he can to have you for himself.now if you think love is as simple as dividing your legs to keep that man around BETTER THINK AGAIN!

    I ditto Russells sentiment. The world has changed and woman have progressed beyond the emotionally fragile creatures we as men have known them to be. Woman are far more independent than what we as men assume, and in ways we do not consider. We as men tend to believe that casual sex speaks primarily to a mans ability to lay a woman or get her into bed with all the accomplishment credit going to us, men. What I mean is we think its always our rap of persuasion that seals the deal. When many woman today often see past the physical act even before it happens. We as men believe we have the woman where we want her, on beckon call, wrapped around our fingers for the moment after sex commences. Yeah she’s just waiting for the next time she can give us some ass. This is NOT true. Woman today also chuck it up (the sex act) as simply getting it in, doing her for the moment.

    Not as often today will you find an adult woman who is in touch with their simple power of pleasuring a man (one of many female powers) caring about being emotionally attached unless they choose to. I won’t say this state of existence is all good, but as men and particularly black men, we have to realize black woman have gone through some developmental transitions that go back to the rearing of black woman in the last 30 yrs. These woman of today seek to see the the non-involved simple side of sexual interaction. This has left black men a bit perplexed. No longer do many black woman involve themselves in catering to the male perception of the “GOOD GIRL”. The place we think all woman should remain in order to be respected by men when it comes to sexuality.

    Now in the case of Rihanna, Chris Brown & Drake who have been intimately linked to Rihanna have both chosen to enlist sarcasm and opinion about Rihanna’s viewed promiscuity. Well my question is: When did Rihanna become a hoe? It is my estimate that feelings are caught after we engage in casual sex (maybe, and for some). So Chris Brown who has history with Rihanna can’t accept that though he may be special to Rihanna in her heart, her body perhaps knows another side of sexual craving that he can’t accept. Drake it seems, is single and making his rounds, so I’d assume that not even a committed or married woman is off limits in his world. Funny a woman finds sexual  time for you (the man) and it’s all good, you don’t care who is claiming her and we don’t know who she sleeps with prior to making herself available to us. All you know is you want to hit it and that’s all you care about.

    Now when your sex is chucked up to being a good time as she sees fit and moves on to the next, the woman (Rihanna) is a hoe? Yeah. I see room for lots of male mental growth and acceptance. Not all black woman are waiting to have your babies, collect taxes, welfare and child support. With the obvious break down of the black family i.e. baby momma, baby daddy a primary and common existence of black people in America. What’s left for the strong ambitious black female who in many cases have grown up with poor or no example of emotionally, and sexually committed black men. Our strong woman: She’s working , she’s finished college, she owns a home, oh did I mention she’s raising her kids in many case by herself. Can black women in this example afford to live down to men’s foolish assumptions of sexual naivety and weakness? Black men, you will reap what you sow. Your woman, mother, sister, aunt, cousin is a reflection of you.

      good stuff brother……i feel and acually agree with 75% of whut your saying…..however…your average BLACK women or better yet women in genaral dosen’t have a following of millions gulliable young girls who are watching this slore every move and some times are even imiataing not just her dance moves and musical performance..but whut she does in her social hours….and granted no one really knws whut she does in her spared time….but if you follow the bloggers it appears she jumps from a-list celobos beds to the strip joint then to any club dat is popping then back to another celeb bedroom…..now being a man with a daughter who sings shot a man down word to word..even the ram-pa-pa-pums part….i say is it ok dat she willingly feed these young soon to be ladies this notion its ok to be a whore….granted my child has me in her life to tell her whats right or wrong or acceptable or not….but like you said in your post above not every litttle girl is as privelage as mine to have a dad in there life….so is it ok dat ri-ri helps establish the next generation of mothers to be a series of whores….my baby moms is reading over my shoulder whut i’m typing….she has informed me that a adolecent girl is gonna do whut they want to do anyways so it’s not really ri-ri’s fault….there was whores before her and there will be long after she’s gone…….baby moms is tripping…..she is completley on your side….all i’m saying is granted it’s our fault as men i would think a person with such an influence over many youg girls would at least try to hide it….do whut you do behind closed doors…but boasting how whips and s&m shit excites you i think is going to far….shorty needs to cool it down on the new edition tip……gotta go argue wit baby moms now..1 love

  • KingsCountyCrooklyn

    when you have to make a song about someone that means you hurt they ain’t with you and mad that others are tearing up the pum tang. like kanye going at amber & wiz. these cats got money to get just about any chic they want so why write a song about one?

    • Negro Peligro

      I’m sorry but Chris Brown got a right to feel a certain way. Its like Jay Z when he flowed on Radio with R Kelly.  It ain’t really about her but yeah you gone feel a certain way if your girl that you really loved getting it in.

    Maybe things would be better if everyone got some class and stopped sleeping with so many people. That goes for both men and women. Have some self control and uncle russy won’t write blogs about male or female h#$

  • nastinupe

    Russ… sorry, but I disagree with you.  Women ain’t men.  Biologically speaking, women weren’t built to sleep with multiple sexual partners.  It serves no biological purpose and increases their chance of catching sexually transmitted diseases.  The difference between men sleeping with multiple women and women sleeping with multiple men is easily explained.  Women are attracted to status and power because females desire to mate the with Alpha male.  This practice ensures that our offspring from the next generation get the best possible genes out of the group.  Those stars that you named are doing this world a favor.  Imagine this.  If Obama and Martian Luther King were Osama Bin Laden and had 50 wives and over 100 children each.  We’d have over 200 MLK III’s running around now, with a lot of them even brighter than MLK Jr himself, ditto for Obama.  Whereas, if a woman sleeps around with a bunch of men, she is doing nothing for her offspring.  She can only get pregnant once and that pregnancy lasts for 9 months.  All she is doing is increasing her chance of infection and causing harm to her unborn child.  So as a clinical scientist, I see holes in your statement.  Socially speaking, I see it as no better.  There is no way that you win on this Mr. Simmons.  No way at all.  

    •  That made no sense what you said

    • jamaicanbornanbreed

      ur wrong johnny….women are built biologically speaking more equipped for sex than men…have you ever had sex with a women?….they have mulitiple orgasam….plus women are the only creatures to have a organ with just one primary use….da clitoris: da sexual organ dat is of one use only and dats pleasure…..you ever had a chick grinding on you and even though you stop her before you bust…you still nut a little….well with woman if you hitting it real hard and you stop before she cums…ur assed out…you have to get back in real quick and build up speed for shorty to get dat nut…..meaning a women stresshold for sex is much longer…and intense as well….it makes sense….women are really the ones to procreate so evoulotion and nature made it very fun….now i’m a mere mortal and i proably shouldn’t be going against a clinical scientists…but i disagree with ur opening statement…however the rest is kind of spot on

  • hahahaha THis is soo funny. Anytime news of this nature hits this site everyone is quick to diss Sydney saying this is Gossip and you hate the site etc. Now topic is about the sex life of a good looking woman and BAM everyone has an opinion.

    There is no difference between the issue of who or how many people riri sleeps with and the color of her shoes..

    Syd, I dont know you but in poker this article would be referred to as – The High Hand.. hahahha

    Russell Simmons likes boys.

    Or so I have heard.

  • You know Russell is right. While some of you guys are busy being misogynistic, the truth of the matter is that Rihanna would destroy you and your love life. She’s a real-life Siren, and most of you guys would give up your left nut for her.

    Yeah but Brad Pitt can go into a club and fail to get laid, whereas the ugliest chick in the world can go into a club and get laid.  Girls get no respect for just opening their legs and guys get respect for opening the girls legs.  It’s like comparing apples and oranges. When Rhianna  fu@@s all these dudes she becomes a groupie, as usual Mr Simmons is outta touch.  If you gonna speak on this slam all of them for sleeping around, but don’t try back one, condone her actions and slam the others for being hypocrites
