Some say Riri is a bad role model for promoting sex, booze and partying, others see her as a style icon and then, for some of us, she’s an inspirational, modern day bag lady.
Do you know what a ‘bag lady’ is? Well, basically it is a noun that is used to identify a homeless woman who carries her possessions in shopping bags, you know, like the lady that Macaulay Culkin meets in Home Alone 2.
I bet you’re thinking how and why does this apply to the multi-award winning, record breaking Barbadian artist, Rihanna?
Well, think about it. We all know that she is one hell of a busy woman and, since she stepped on to the scene, never has a week passed without the words ‘Rihanna’s new single’ being uttered. And, if we are to base her whereabouts by looking using the social media platforms directly linked to the star, it would be safe to say that this one woman pop machine appears to be on more then 3 continents at anyone time. And if she is able to be on more than 3 continents at once, not only is she a force to be reckoned with but it would almost seem like she is homeless.
Yes, Rihanna is always on the move. Let’s take her epic 7-night tour that she recently embarked on as an example; Her feet barely touched the ground in between the shows. As soon as she left one venue, it was on to the next.
This is just one of the many pieces of evidence that would suggest that she is homeless… which would mean she needs lots of bags containing her possessions… A.K.A… a bag lady.
But this isn’t just your average bag lady we’re talking about here, no, no (as if there is ‘your average’ bag lady). This is your upmarket kind, whose bags are less shopping and more designer. Take her obsession with the Dolce Bag by Dolce&Gabbana, Rihanna is rarely seen without it slung over her arm, even when she’s looking lost in a park, she’s clutching on to her Dolce Bag. I mean, who could blame her, seeing as she is always on the road, Rihanna must have all sorts of personal items in it.
So there you go, the evidence that points towards why some us regard Rihanna as a modern day bag lady. Okay… next.
