Rihanna Vs. Miley Cyrus - Who Is The REAL Bad Girl Of Pop?
They're two of the baddest gals in the pop world, having left their sweet and innocent images FAR behind them… but who is the BADDEST girl in pop? We put Miley Cyrus and Rihanna head to head to find out.
Miley’s been known to be on both sides of the tattoo needle – even holding tattoo parties for her and her pals to get inked. She’s got tribute tats to her dead pets and even a random alien head inked into her skin for life. Rihanna is also a collector of body art, but she went about ten steps further when she got a traditional Polynesian tattoo in 2013 – etched into her skin using a hammer and CHISEL. If that’s not hardcore, we don’t know what is! Picture: PA/Getty
2. Sexy Music Videos
It’s hard to decide who takes this crown with so many extreme videos to choose from, from the two baddest girls in pop… Rihanna turned stripper in her explicit video for ‘Pour It Up’ while Miley LITERALLY stripped off and swung about on a ‘Wrecking Ball’. We reckon Miley's JUST edged the win in this one.
3. Red Carpet Fashion
These two ladies are definitely not afraid to flash the flesh – and when you have bods this flawless, it would be rude not to! Miley went for a daring bandage style gown for the AmfAR Gala, while Rih literally got it all out in a sheer floor length frock for the CFDA Awards. Due to the sheer revealingness of her gown, Rihanna HAS to win this one.
4. Banned Instagram Shots
Miley Cyrus chose to #FreeTheNipple on Insta – before the site took her raunchy topless snap down, but Rihanna is the queen of angering the Instagram gods – and even got thrown off the site twice for posting pictures of her naked bum.
5. Explicit Lyrics
Neither of these ladies are known for mincing their words in their songs, with Miley even titling one of her songs 'FU'. However, anyone that's given the likes of Rhi's 'Cockiness' a listen knows the Bajan star is DEFINITELY the ruder of the two!
6. Controversial Moments
Miley shocked fans when she appeared to light a dodgy looking cigarette on stage during a performance – that’s not going to do your singing voice any favours, Ms Cyrus! Rihanna stunned her #Navy by going back to her bad boy ex Chris Brown, though she has thankfully seen sense since and ditched him for good, so we think Miley's got the crown for the most outrageous moments.
7. Image Transformations
Rihanna’s one of the lucky few that can rock pretty much any hair colour, length or style and pull it off with her badass attitude. We’ve seen several striking looks from Ms Fenty over the years, but none can be compared to the moment when Miley Cyrus lopped off her long locks. With the new pixie crop came a newfound badgirl attitude as Miley left her Hannah Montana days FAR behind her, and transitioned from bubblegum princess to bad gal.
8. Shocking Performances
RiRi got her twerk on in her raunchy Diamonds tour shows, but Miley caused the entire world to do a massive gasp in unison when she got on stage at the 2013 MTV VMAs and twerked the life out of Robin Thicke who was, at this point, a married man. Awk. Therefore, we judge that Ms Cyrus definitely beats Rihanna on this count!
9. Naked Shoots
Rihanna’s no stranger to a nudey shoot or ten, but Miley has recently been going the extra mile with her extreme Terry Richardson shoots and full-frontal shots which are enough to make you blush. There’s literally not an inch of Miley Cyrus we have yet to see… Bubble beard optional!
