Suspected Illuminati puppet Rihanna is in the news again”¦she’s making business moves to spread her brand and messages to the greater public by launching a men’s fragrance called ‘Rogue’ in September 2013. It’s just one way the singer has a strong influence on the public. The concepts, lifestyle choices, and behavior that today’s celebrities portray or support has a profound effect on the society ”“ especially on the today’s youth. And, Rihanna has certainly built a popular persona ”“ one that happens to promote violence and chaotic behavior.
Today, Rihanna is one of the most popular female musicians with a knack for staying relevant in the media. She is definitely considered one of the ‘role models’ for today’s generation of young girls in America (and across the world).
From choosing to have a gun tattoo done after a turbulent bump in the road with her relationship to singer Chris Brown to constantly pumping out songs that reference guns and revenge, Rihanna has a reputation for supporting violent themes both inside and outside of her music. For example, her song ‘Man Down’ speaks of shooting and killing a man in an act of revenge.
To make matters worse, the singer incorporates chaotic and risky behavior into her music videos, which send a strong message to young females of today. While some call her a strong, positive role model for women, others aren’t so sure she’s having such a positive effect on younger listeners or adults.
Rihanna is a popular vehicle that the entertainment industry can use to influence the greater public. Chances are, if Rihanna shows up on the cover of a magazine with a new hairstyle or appears in a movie ”“ haircuts and colors will be duplicated, and the film will garner attention.
One of the business ventures that Rihanna has successfully entered includes generating and marketing fragrances, as well as other cosmetics, and she’s pretty good at it. Her own line of lipsticks called ‘RiRi Woo’ (made in collaboration with MAC Cosmetics) completely sold out within three hours of being released. As for her fragrances, she’s done well in this department too, and has plans for a new release, ‘Rogue,’ which includes a scent made for a man.
The Naming of Rihanna’s Line of Fragrances
Just as subtle as the name chosen for a fragrance, celebrities can promote hidden agendas and fuel chaotic-inducing behaviors. In the past, the names of Rihanna’s other popular fragrances are quite telling in the messages that they send. The simplicity of just one word can have an impact on young girls, as the escalating trend of desensitizing today’s youth to immoral and reckless lifestyle habits and behavior ”“ gains more steam with the backing of their favorite celebrities.
The first fragrance that Rihanna released in 2011 was called ‘Reb’l Fleur,’ and has been described as ‘daring, sexy and truly memorable.’ It’s an interesting name choice since ‘to rebel’ means ‘to go against something ”“ an idea, notion or the law.’ In the spring of 2012, Rihanna’s second fragrance was named ‘Rebelle’ (once again using the theme of ‘rebellion’), and was meant to capture the scents associated with her homeland of Barbados.
In November 2012, Rihanna released ‘Nude’ as her third fragrance, which was made to initiate and create “intimacy and a feeling of bare skin and nakedness.” The name of her latest fragrance, ‘Rogue,’ translates into a ‘scoundrel or mischievous person.’ ‘Going rogue’ also means to stand out from the rest or ‘rebel’ against authority.
