Rashida Jones recently penned an article for Glamour Magazine where she took on Rihanna, Miley Cyrus, and Nicki Minaj for being too sexual.
Her explanation comes after she tweeted out the hashtag “#stopactinglikewh-res” blasting celebrities.
This is what she said:
“If 1994 was the Year of O.J.’s White Bronco, 2013 was the Year of the Very Visible Vagina,” the 37-year-old actress wrote, criticizing “the Miley Cyrus cross-continental twerk-athon and Nick Minaj’s Halloween pasties. With the addition of Rihanna writhing on a pole in her ‘Pour it Up’ video and Lady Gaga’s butt-crack cover art or the song that goes ‘Do what you want with my body,’ I was just done. I’d had enough.”
“Let me say up front: I am not a prude. I love sex; I am comfortable with my sexuality,” Jones continued, but protested that “every star interprets ‘sexy’ the same way: lots of skin, lots of licking of teeth, lots of bending over. I find this oddly…boring. Can’t I just like a song without having to take an ultrasound of some pop star’s privates?”
“The fact that I was accused of ‘slut-shaming,’ being anti-woman, and judging women’s sex lives crushed me. I consider myself a feminist,” Jones wrote. “But I will look at women with influence-millionaire women who use their ‘sexiness’ to make money-and ask some questions. There is a difference, a key one, between ‘shaming’ and ‘holding someone accountable.’”
