Rashida Jones Calls Out Nicki Minaj For Raunchy Image


Earlier this year, Rashida Jones made headlines in October when she told the women of the industry “to stop acting like whores” (as indicated in her viral hashtag) and step up their standards. Greeted by a ton of backlash in response to her rant, Rashida now takes to Glamour Magazine to further explain her message.

Read an excerpt of her letter below:

And then there’s this: What else ties these pop stars together besides, perhaps, their entangled G-strings? Their millions of teen-girl fans. Even if adult Miley and Nicki have ownership of their bodies, do the girls imitating them have the same agency? Where do we draw the line between teaching them freedom of sexual expression and pride in who they are on the inside? Are we even allowed to draw a line?

Some people think not. Sinéad O’Connor got blowback after writing an open letter to Miley Cyrus, warning her of the dangers of her constant sexual imagery: “The music business…will prostitute you for all you are worth…and when you wind up in rehab… ‘they’ will be sunning themselves on their yachts in Antigua, which they bought by selling your body, and you will find yourself very alone.” Miley responded by basically calling her crazy.
