"The man whose lips Rihanna ruthlessly mocked on the Internet — in front of nearly 12 million people — doesn't think it's racist..."

"... in fact, he's HAPPY she compared his mouth to a leather couch."

He's a rapper.
That has to be an over-saturated market.

There's no such thing as bad publicity.

I wouldn't complain if she mocked my lips as long as she had some personal experience with them first.

She's Black and female...of course her statement wasn't racist....and you're racist and sexist for even attempting to judge her statement.

In defense of Rihanna, "pillowy" is a very common adjective in flattering descriptions of lips.

TMZ is my favorite source for news.

Ann,

I think I mentioned this to you before, but I started my illustrating career working for a guy who demanded everyone in his fliers had lips like that.

I have a VHS recording of, I think, an old Clive James broadcast ("Fame in the 20th Century"?) where he describes Mick Jagger as "looking as though he could pay lip service to locomotive."
