Rihanna has hit back at Daily Mail columnist Liz Jones after her latest article branded the singer a "toxic role model for her army of young fans".
Liz also accused the Grammy Award-winning artist of dressing in a way that "surely invites rape at worst, disrespect at least".
'Diamonds' star Rihanna is known for doing and saying exactly what she wants, and it looks like Liz may have picked the wrong star to chastise this time.
Defending herself via Instagram, Rihanna posted what looks like a photoshopped image of Liz along with the frank and feisty message below:
"LOL!!!! My money got a bad habit of pissing people off!! If you sincerely wanna help little girls more than their own parents do, here's a toxic tip: don't be amateur with your articles, you sound bitter! What's all this about hair and nails and costumes and tattoos?? ....That shit ain't clever!!! That shit ain't journalism! That's a sad sloppy menopausal mess!!! Nobody over here acts like they're perfect! I don't pretend that I'm like you, i just live... My life!! And I don't know why y'all still act so surprised by any of it!! "Role Model" is not a position or title that I have ever campaigned for, so chill wit dat! I got my own fucked up shit to work on, I'll never portray that as perfect, but for right now it's ME!! Call it what ya want!! Toxic was cute, Poisonous Pop Princess had a nice ring to it, just a lil wordy! And P.S. my first American Vogue cover was in 2011...APRIL!!! #ElizabethAnnJones"

In her Daily Mail article Liz slams Rihanna for taking back her "abusive boyfriend, Chris Brown" and accuses her of promoting drug-taking and drinking.
She signs off her column, which came after Rihanna posted a photo of herself smoking two giant spliffs on Twitter, by writing "this poisonous pop princess should come with a government health warning".
