Rihanna Slams Indiana’s New Controversial Anti-Gay “Religious Freedom Restoration Act”
Just live ya life, ayyye, Ayyyee, AYYYYYYE!
After hearing snippets of “American Oxygen” on several commercials promoting the NCAA basketball tournament, fans attending the March Madness Music Fest Saturday night finally heard the song from start to finish.
“Breathe out, breathe in / This American oxygen,” she sings in the opening moments. “Every breath I breathe / Chasing this American dream / Respect for a nickel and dime / Turn it into an empire.”
Robyn also took a moment to speak out against controversial new Indiana laws that could potentially allow businesses to ban gay folks from their premises.
Putting music aside, RiRi also took time out of her performance to unload on Indiana’s controversial Religious Freedom Restoration Act. Although the bill was recently amended, the “Live Your Life” crooner couldn’t help but share how upset she still was at the rule.
“Who’s feeling these new bulls–t laws that they’re trying to pass over here? I say f–k that s–t,” she told the crowd as captured in video footage on Facebook. “We’re just living our mother–king lives, Indiana.”
Gotta rep for the folks who make the registers ring when the album drops…
