Evolution of The Bad Girl
Now well into the millennium, the face of the image of the bad girl has evolved and Rihanna has taken the cake. Images of her drug use, videos, nude photos and hyper-sexual lyrics have completely washed away the good girl image that the Caribbean beauty once displayed in “Pon De Replay.” Her success only proves the being bad leads to #1 hits, breaking of records, millions of fans, movie deals, endorsement deals and countless awards.
While right or wrong, being bad never looked so good. Looking back at past female music legends proves that women in music have relied on being “bad” just as much as their vocals and talent.
