Rihanna has slammed Daily Mail columnist Liz Jones for penning a piece that describes her as ‘pop’s poisonous princess’.

The Bajan singer, 25, posted a scathing rant against Liz, 54, on Instagram earlier today after reading the article, which accuses her of being a ‘toxic’ influence on young fans.

‘They want to be Rihanna, have her lifestyle, her clothes, her men, her habits,’ writes Liz on the Mail Online.

‘I wish she’d stop infecting our High Streets with her gun tattoos, her false nails and fake hair, her bogus bad-ass shenanigans that try to portray her as “real”, as “street”, as her own person, as strong and single-minded.’

Rihanna – who was snapped out yesterday wearing a T-shirt emblazoned with a picture of a cannabis leaf – is furious.

She told her Instagram followers that she was laughing before saying that her money has a ‘bad habit of p*ssing people off’ and that ‘role model’ is not a position she’s campaigned for.

Ri-Ri added that she knows she’s got some ‘f*cked up sh*t’ she needs to work on but that she doesn’t pretend to be perfect.

She snaps back at Liz: ‘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 sh*t ain’t clever!!! That sh*t ain’t journalism! That’s a sad sloppy menopausal mess!!!’
