As glamorous as it may seem to be famous, it is definitely hard work. The lack of privacy, hectic schedules and pressure to be perfect can be overwhelming and downright scary to have on your plate all at once. The following ladies on our list have all been subject to the pressures of fame but have (for the most part) held their composure and developed a tough skin–almost too tough. In the wake of Kanye’s recent rants in Europe (and in general), Vixen has complied a list of composed ladies that we wish would put their image aside for a second and tell us the real deal. — Christopher Lowery
If you have seen or heard an interview with Ciara, you know how eloquent she is. She has always managed to maintain a clean image and generally saved any racy material for her art. But what if CiCi were to give us a little bit of that on-stage fire and tell us what’s really going on in her mind? I mean, we’d have a lot to vent about if our music career was waning.
As bold as her antics are these days, Rihanna still finds a way to keep her ice princess demeanor. If her Twitter spats are any indication, the girl indeed has a mouth on her. A rant from Rihanna would not only be edifying, it would be entertaining with quotables for days. #Phuckyorant.
Not the biggest fan-favorite at the moment, Keri Hilson never quite addressed the public’s obvious displeasure with her about, well, everything. She threw shots at Beyoncé and Ciara indirectly on the remix to “Turning Me On” then avoided the topic whenever it was brought up, blaming it on a producer who wasn’t supposed to leak that version. All this makes one wonder why is Keri really mad? We know there is something bothering you, girl. Let it out.
There is no mistaking Keyshia for some soft-spoken, timid girl. So instead of taking cheap shots at Michelle Williams after her performance at this year’s Super Bowl, maybe she can be the woman she claims to be in her music and sound off about everything. Heck, make another reality show about it…or let us know the real reason you and Jeezy broke up?
Nicki Minaj is the reigning empress of female rappers at the moment. She went from rapping on steps to judging American Idol in less than three years. A transition that fast has got to take its toll on you, and we know things aren’t all happy and colorful as her persona makes it seem (see: Mariah Carey beef). Could you imagine a rant from Nicki featuring all of her many personalities? That’s popcorn-worthy.
