Rihanna Favors Male Friends

R&B star Rihanna surrounds herself with male friends because she believes men are more loyal than women. The single Umbrella singer, who has two brothers, enjoys talking through her dating problems with men.

She says, "I have three girlfriends and about 20 guy friends. I love listening to guy talk because I learn a lot. Here's the key - you can't lower your standards for a guy because he won't respect you and he'll tell his friends. You always have to stick up for yourself and speak your mind."


I really hate women who say that guy friends are better than women friends. Sure many are great, but saying women are not loyal or you have to change yourself when talking to women seems so immature and childish.

edit: bbs I don't have a problem with guy friends. I have a problem with women saying guys are better because women are catty, not loyal, you have to change when you are with them. That is what I find immature and childish. If you feel that way about women, then there is either a problem of where you are finding them or the problem lies within yourself.

I agree with your comment.
fortytwostars 19th-Feb-2008 04:59 pm (UTC)

I was that way when I was younger.
Then I grew up.

i agree 100% with what you are saying.
men are from mars woman are from venus. they cannot comprehend our fabulousness
mmacctt 19th-Feb-2008 05:36 pm (UTC)
gay men are in a different catagory though
cassielush 19th-Feb-2008 08:26 pm (UTC)
ah yes. same here..
pinathebear 19th-Feb-2008 08:56 pm (UTC)
thats not it. there are lots of women i find completely boring to be friends with because all they want to do is talk about the different between men and women and how their men don't understand them and how they are cooler than other women and this and that. men on the other hand are usually pretty content to sit and talk about movies, music, videogames, and cheap travel deals. (here come the comments that say 'thats all i love talking about' well let me tell you, not many women do. the ones i find ive kept as friends'). i have a great group of girlfriends but i think the only reason for that is because i try to make friends with older female friends. they are usually over the bitchy stage (or atleast your chances of find that in them are greater). you are pretty ignorant if you don't think women are catty and bitchy to other women. either that, or really lucky. men are really supportive and listen more. i don't think men and women are from different planets as media would have you think. perhaps its because im a student of gender studies and my education has changed my mind on this stuff. that said, i still think rihanna is a big cunt and probably doesn't have female friends because she prances around their boyfriends in her skimpy underwear..i mean outfits.
odella 20th-Feb-2008 12:49 am (UTC)
blah blah blah

Let me tell you something. I have both male and female friends and while I see differences in gender, men aren't automatically better friends than women. The guy-friends I have are just as catty and backstabbing as the girl-friends. They might not bitch about it out loud when there are girls present, but they do. That's just my opinion, I guess.
xxxjoannxxx 20th-Feb-2008 03:48 am (UTC)
seriously. guys can be just as, if not more catty than girls. what stops a guy from talking about you behind your back just like a woman?
bingashay 20th-Feb-2008 04:36 pm (UTC)
Me too. I get so tired of hearing women say this. This is the exact kind of woman who we wouldn't want as a friend.
xmest_upx 19th-Feb-2008 04:48 pm (UTC)
Rihanna is a ho.

Fo sho.
chaquitalicia04 19th-Feb-2008 04:49 pm (UTC)
She was a ho. For sho.
pumblechook 19th-Feb-2008 05:07 pm (UTC)
it's kinda true. she totes just likes having so many guy friends because she knows they all want to get with her.
britty_stitches 19th-Feb-2008 04:48 pm (UTC)
What she said makes no sense to me.
indulgence_ 19th-Feb-2008 04:48 pm (UTC)
i agree tho.
i have so many fake girlfriends.
& its sad because they pretend to be all lovey dovey around me
& then they talk about me behind my back.

guys have way less drama

___lastlight 19th-Feb-2008 04:54 pm (UTC)
Well I think that has nothing to do with women in general-you clearly need better taste in friends.
indulgence_ 19th-Feb-2008 05:02 pm (UTC)
nope. i have a fine taste in friends.
some girls are just bitches and are envious and jealous
all that drama does not happen with guys
misstwirly 19th-Feb-2008 05:23 pm (UTC)
ia. I have plenty of guy and girl friends and none of them cause drama.
gl0rybox 19th-Feb-2008 04:57 pm (UTC)
Iawtc. I have the same thing with girls talking shit behind my back but acting all nice and sweet when I'm around. Because of that I pick my friends carefully now and people will really have to prove themselves in order to become one. I'm just sick and tired of thinking I have a real friend until they turn their back on me when I need them the most and are just two-faced bitches.

Guys are more straight-forward on that matter, less drama like you said.
anster5 19th-Feb-2008 05:36 pm (UTC)
I agree 100%
ghost_chick_13 19th-Feb-2008 05:39 pm (UTC)
I agree.
musicluvr325 19th-Feb-2008 06:45 pm (UTC)
God, I know two people that really hate each other, but act all best friends to each other. Makes me sick.
demented_21 19th-Feb-2008 06:57 pm (UTC)
Guys have less drama mostly because they're dumb.
hardcoresince3 19th-Feb-2008 08:35 pm (UTC)
if you have friends like that, then you shouldn't be friends with them.
it's just that simple

why surround yourself with fake people?
love_dior22 20th-Feb-2008 01:37 am (UTC)
IA. I have a few close girlfriends who are genuine and lovely, but damn there are so fucked up friends in my circle.
bingashay 20th-Feb-2008 04:36 pm (UTC)
the guys are fake too.. Trust me, they just want in your pants!
janelleandheart 19th-Feb-2008 04:48 pm (UTC)
She had to listen to guy talk to learn that?
sharemygrief 19th-Feb-2008 04:49 pm (UTC)
chaquitalicia04 Rihanna Favors Male Friends19th-Feb-2008 04:48 pm (UTC)
So do I. I have a few close girlfriends, but for the most part, I hang out with guys. Two of my best friends are guys.
chapel_noir Re: Rihanna Favors Male Friends19th-Feb-2008 05:09 pm (UTC)
Nothing wrong with that and I do have some close guy friends as well. I just don't like her generalization of women being unloyal.
chaquitalicia04 Re: Rihanna Favors Male Friends19th-Feb-2008 05:41 pm (UTC)
No, I don't think that at all. My absolute best friend is a girl. Yes, there is always drama with girlfriends, but not every girl.
Good job with the icon, btw... lol.
theromanticists Re: Rihanna Favors Male Friends19th-Feb-2008 07:04 pm (UTC)
my best friend is a guy.
but my girlfriends are awesome but i can't say i prefer guys over girls or girls over guys as friends.
green__desire 19th-Feb-2008 04:49 pm (UTC)
Whatever mom hair, no one has 20 'real' friends anyways. Stop trying to make yourself sound interesting and appealing because YOUR A GUYS GIRL. ONE OF THE GUYS. NO ONE CARES.
mixman001 19th-Feb-2008 05:00 pm (UTC)
lol i def have more than 20 real friends
demented_21 19th-Feb-2008 06:59 pm (UTC)
So when something happens, good or bad, you pick up the phone and call 20 people?
green__desire 19th-Feb-2008 08:39 pm (UTC)
ok so you are close to 20 people, hang out with 20 people regularly? No one gets priority over the other? thats bullshit.
cleojones 19th-Feb-2008 05:02 pm (UTC)
For real.

More like 20 guys hoping she has a weak moment, when they can get in and fuck.
pinathebear 19th-Feb-2008 09:01 pm (UTC)
its women like you that make women like her gravitate towards men. i don't think she was trying to call herself anything because shes a guys girl. she's probably just surrounded by catty females who say stuff like that to her all the time because they can't get a handle on their irrational emotions and are jealous that guys dont want to hang out with him. just sayin. learn to control your craziness and stop giving all women a bad name!
pinathebear 19th-Feb-2008 09:03 pm (UTC)
ps. learn to spell. YOUR is "shall we go to YOUR house". YOU'RE is "stop thinking YOU'RE so great because YOU'RE a guys girl."
aimskeet 19th-Feb-2008 04:49 pm (UTC)
word riri!
i completely agree with her
i have far more closer male friends than female
girls will stab a betch in the back no problem and they will cut you up without even thinking about it
cutdacheese 19th-Feb-2008 04:49 pm (UTC)
I'm sure that there are good women friends out there but I have found in my past that most of my women friends have been disloyal to me and I usually had to find out the hard way. It may be a cliche to say but it's true, my best friends are my gay friends who may be bitchy but they always tell me the truth and always have my back.
lisa7773 19th-Feb-2008 04:49 pm (UTC)
yeah allroyt hooker
mmacctt 19th-Feb-2008 05:37 pm (UTC)
lol @ icon ♥
jeffreyuno_1 19th-Feb-2008 04:49 pm (UTC)
It's probably hard for her to find good girlfriends now. That happens when you're younger and those friendships usually last for a long time...so it makes sense why she has more guy friends.
la_geni 19th-Feb-2008 04:50 pm (UTC)
I dunno. I always think that girls that have ALL guy friends are the slutty/bitchy kind for some reason.
chiss 19th-Feb-2008 06:39 pm (UTC)
Because they usually think they're better than other women/are inherently more competitive for male attention.
pinathebear 19th-Feb-2008 09:05 pm (UTC)
no its because they are not the alpha female and probably spent a lot of time being attacked by bitchy women who were jealous so they just reverted into the men's corner where they could find some non bitchy conversation.
one_fierce_bish 19th-Feb-2008 04:50 pm (UTC)
I really hate women who say that guy friends are better than women friends. Sure many are great, but saying women are not loyal or you have to change yourself when talking to women seems so immature and childish.

I'm sorry but I agree with her..I was a tom boy growing up and I just bond better with guys..girls are just so two faced and dramatic..I don't have time for all that shit

The girlfriend that I have now are girls just like me who aren't into all the fake shit
chapel_noir 19th-Feb-2008 04:55 pm (UTC)
I grew up a tomboy as well and always had guy friends. But to say that you have to lower yourself when you are with girls makes no sense. Either you can conform and be like your friends, or be yourself 24/7 with or find better friends where you can be yourself.
one_fierce_bish 19th-Feb-2008 04:58 pm (UTC)
Yea I kinda don't get that...maybe she means that you have to change to be friends with women as opposed to men will take ya as you come..idk idk idk

pinathebear 19th-Feb-2008 09:10 pm (UTC)
in theory, true, but in my case, my best friend married an emotionally unstable psychotic (and i dont use the word lightly) failed actress hopped up on acutane. i can't exactly not be around them, so i have to make sure everytime i visit them, i wear baggy tees and no makeup and look as disheveled as possible because everytime someone has complimented me on my outfit, or the way i look, she has spent all night sulking and then will send me an email the next day saying that i must be really insecure if i have to dress up to go places. now all this coming from an overly madeup chick. now you tell me whats someone to do in such a situation? i told my friend to put his bitch on a leash but he's pussy whipped so he just said not to try to outdo her because shes really a jealous type. they've moved so its not a big deal anymore but still. what a catty psycho.
sporkier 19th-Feb-2008 04:50 pm (UTC)
She's right. I have very few girl friends because they always find some way to annoy me.

I went to LA and SF with one of them and she did nothing but complain about wanting to go home and she never wanted to do anything but sleep in the hotel.

And I went to New York with another girl and we always had to stop to rest her feet and she complained about everything.

And I went to Vancouver this past weekend with a guy friend, and it was amazing and we actually got to do stuff.
chaquitalicia04 19th-Feb-2008 04:59 pm (UTC)
I am going on a road trip with my best friend this summer. We are so stoked. We are in San Diego, and we are going all the way to CT to see his mom.
sporkier 19th-Feb-2008 05:02 pm (UTC)
Shut up :( I've ALWAYS wanted to do a road trip like that. Though the road trip to LA was painful because that bitch seriously did not want to stop to do ANYTHING, and when we go there she was moody and if I said, "... when are we going to start doing something?" she'd bitch me out.

The guy I'm seeing is flying to Virginia next month and driving back here to Seattle :/ I'm super jealous.
miloseven 19th-Feb-2008 07:21 pm (UTC)
Comments like that seem more disloyal to women.
hardcoresince3 19th-Feb-2008 08:38 pm (UTC)
bb you just had crappy girl friends
when I went to NY over the summer with my girl friend, we did soooo much walking and we never complained.. actually, I lost a few lbs because all the walking we did haha
jubella 19th-Feb-2008 04:50 pm (UTC)
you can't lower your standards for a guy because he won't respect you and he'll tell his friends. You always have to stick up for yourself and speak your mind."


Idc that she has more guy friends, but her explanation made no sense. Either way, gtfo Rihanna.
