Rihanna Claims She Hates Whoring Out Her Videos With Product Placement

- By Bossip Staff

We never thought we’d see Rihanna take a stance against whoring of any kind, but in the new issue of British magazine NME the “Rude Boy” singer rails against commercialism. Pop the hood for more.

The Def Jam star, who is scheduled to perform her #1 single “Rude Boy” on “American Idol tonight, takes a tough stance on “selling out” in her latest profile, telling the magazine:

“I don’t like things to be so commercial. I hate product placement in my videos. Videos should just tell the story of the song. With product placement, it becomes this big ad campaign. I just don’t like that. Sometimes we have to (use products in music videos), for whatever political reason, but it’s never my first choice.”

Uh huh, so we’re to believe the label is just twisting her arm to take those corporate dollars they’re waving in front of her face?

Gotta love the little parrot on her shoulder — birds of a feather right?
