Rihanna's Pajamas Make Her Look Crazy


rihannaI don't know what sort of bedtime trauma I endured as a kid, but there's something about pajamas that I can't stand. Well, it's more that seeing people in their pajamas is what I have a problem with. It just makes them look so vulnerable! And a little bit insane. Because anyone who wears PJs outside of the privacy of their own bedroom has got to be a smidge unhinged. I know I might be alone on this point, but when I saw the photos of Rihanna greeting her fans in her pajamas, I cringed. She's lost it, no?

Rihanna's style has taken a left turn recently and this PJ fiasco perfectly shows that she's kinda lost that fashion feeling. And maybe a little bit more.

Clearly when anyone stands on their balcony in a Rio de Janeiro hotel room while thousands of fans scream below, one realizes that they're going to be seen. Rihanna doesn't seem to care as deeply as I do about going out in public wearing, you know, clothes, but what's her objective?

Is she going full-blown exhibitionist? That's certainly a way to get publicity, but Ri Ri doesn't need it -- she's talented and beautiful. Pants wouldn't do her career any harm. Is she just trying to be weird like Lady Gaga? That's not cool, either. There's only one gaGA, there isn't room for two (or three, if you count Nicki Minaj).

Rihanna's been wearing less and less clothing over the past few months and I think she's on some sort of "mental break," as my therapist calls it. And the pajama thing really solidifies that for me. It just shows that she doesn't care. There's good and bad when it comes to not caring ... take Britney Spears for example. She stopped caring and started wearing bikini tops, cut-off shorts, bare feet, and a shaved head.

That's what I dislike most about the PJ "lewk," if you will. It just makes Rihanna look like she's given up. What do you see bums wearing on the street? PJs. What do you see chronically sick people wearing? PJs. What do you see babies wearing at airports when parents have just completely given up on life? PJs.

Who's with me? Clothes don't only express a sense of style but also a sense of sanity. Rihanna's got too much to lose with these bizarre and alienating fashion choices she's making. I mean, how hard is it to put on some jeans?

What do you think about wearing pajamas in public?

In this case, I totally agree.  I HATE the pajama pants trend.  Pajama pants are NOT going outside clothes.

I absolutely cringe when I see mothers in jammie pants dropping their kids off at school.  Last week a mom dropped off her son in dirty, had my period in these pants and didn't get them cleaned well, stained John Deere pajama pants.  I felt so sorry for that poor kid.  I don't dress up with the makeup, the perfectly fixed up hair and so on, but I make sure that I at least look presentable.

I don't know that I would consider stepping out onto a hotel balcony the same as wearing pajamas in public.   Whenever I'm lucky enough to have a hotel room with a balcony, you can bet your butt that my butt will be out there in pajamas having coffee in the morning.

However, I can't stand to see people out shopping (or whatever) in pajamas.  Even if it's early or late, even if they're just getting coffee, and even if the pajamas are cute.  Grow up. If you have to leave your yard and your destination is somewhere other that a doctor or hospital, put some street clothes on.

It's not like she's at the grocery store. She's on the balcony of her hotel ROOM. Maybe she just woke from a nap? I think she looks cute.

Stacey. Stacey.

how do you qualify a plain gray tank top and shorts as pajamas? Its not like she's wearing fuzzy pants w/ silly cartoon characters on them. If I were her, I'd be more worried about how I actully looked (ex. my hair and face) than what clothes i had on. Clothes you can change LOL

You know what's the best part about Rhianna ? Even with crazy morning hair, no makeup, and in her PJ's, she's a beautiful person inside and out . There's no sign of a 'style breakdown' to me . It's just casual and relaxed . Not everyone can be glam 24/7, nor should they be . And it's not like she's going out or anything . She did a nice thing, greeting her fans on her personal time from her hotel balcony . She works hard and she can dress comfy if she'd like .

This article is stupid and Lindsay Mannering wishes she looks as good in pj's as Rhianna . Not everything in life is about trying to impress people with your looks ...

C'mon, this article reeks of jealousy and envy.  I'm all for looking good in public, but she was on the balcony of her hotel room.  So what?  Was she supposed to get up and get dressed to the 9s just to go on the balcony?  This article is stupid.  You're always writing about female celebrities and how they're dressed, usually with a mean word or two, but yet your own CM profile picture leaves much to be desired.

I think she looks fine. Cute, Comfortable, And loungy. Did you really expect her to do her hair and makeup, Change clothes for a hotel balcony? It's not like she is naked, or at some Black Tie event. Obviously I also have giving up because I walked in my front yard this morning with a wife beater and booty shorts on because I just got out of bed and had to get my dog back inside. Now when the girl starts beating people with umbrellas... Then you can so she is having a mental break.

Are you crazy? Your therapist should tell you to stop being such a judgy bitch. Rihanna is a normal person. Why wouldn't she wear pajamas? So stuiped.

Clearly you're the one with the problem if you have to see a therapist. Not Rihanna.

She's on her hotel balcony waving to her fans...She probably JUST woke up (obviously). Her fans don't care what she's wearing as long as she acknowledges them like a gracious pop star should. And who writes an "article" that long about pajamas? It's clear that you are perhaps a little envious and jealous of Rihanna. Sometimes a girl just wants to have a break from constantly being pretty and dressed. This shows that she's real and doesn't have insecurities some have like Kim Kardashian or Lady Gaga who are always dressed to the nines and in full make-up. RiRi keeps it real and doesn't give a f***....she's a gangsta.
