I’ve seen many ‘good girls go bad,’ but I specifically remember when Rihanna named her fourth album after the trope, effectively putting the industry on notice: We were about to encounter an entirely new woman... Being a young woman is complex. We’re told, in some capacity, that our silence protects us. We are encouraged not to ‘grow up so quickly,’ whatever that may mean. No one ever considers that we may want what’s on the other side, or that we’re ready to make a few mistakes. I’m sure many of my favorite stars were told behind closed doors and in hushed voices to ‘tone it down.’ I’m glad they didn’t. I wonder who I would be if they had.
