Rihanna Says Men Today Are Afraid to Be Men
Rihanna heads into the airport to catch a flight out of town on Tuesday (October 6) in Paris, France.
The 27-year-old singer is featured on the cover of Vanity Fair‘s new issue and she opens up about why she thinks men today are afraid to be men.
“I always see the best in people,” Rihanna said. “I hope for the best, and I always look for that little bit of good, that potential, and I wait for it to blossom. You want them to feel good being a man, but now men are afraid to be men. They think being a real man is actually being a pussy, that if you take a chair out for a lady, or you’re nice or even affectionate to your girl in front of your boys, you’re less of a man.”
“It’s so sick. They won’t be a gentleman because that makes them appear soft,” Rihanna added. “That’s what we’re dealing with now, a hundred percent, and girls are settling for that, but I won’t. I will wait forever if I have to … but that’s O.K. You have to be screwed over enough times to know, but now I’m hoping for more than these guys can actually give.”
