Bad role model? Rihanna lights up for photo shoot



The shots, which were taken for the 23-year-old's new single, Talk That Talk, show RiRi posing provocatively while puffing on cigarettes and leaking smoke from her mouth.

It's not the first time the singer has smoked in front of the camera. In fact, RiRi came under fire earlier this week for smoking in the music video for her single, We Found Love.

The Ulster Cancer Foundation of Ireland, where the clip was filmed, slammed the singer for glamorising smoking in the vid, labelling her an irresponsible teen role model.

"Three-quarters of adult smokers start the habit as teenagers, which is why it is so irresponsible of Rihanna to influence her young fan base in this way," said a Foundation spokesperson.

"We are very concerned that young people watching the video will see smoking as glamorous and want to copy her behaviour."

We reckon more than a few parents would agree.

What do you think? Is RiRi a bad role model for teens? .
