I find it suspect how she makes constant references to the Bible, is with a man who's displayed homophobia, yet has never publically supported gay rights in any manner or even commented on the gay community. I find her suspect.

It's such a shame, really. I first became aware of her when that "Good Girl Gone Bad" album was released. Vocally, she's not the best singer in the world, but she had the right amount of playfulness and enthusiasm for the music she was making - pure pop confection - and that was alright by me b/c I genuinely enjoyed "Umbrella", "Don't Stop The Music" and some others from that offering. But it wasn't until after that "darker" turn she made that I began to lose interest and enthusiasm for her. I understand that music artists need to explore themselves in order to keep creating, but I hate it when they take that to automatically mean MORE sex and MORE violence being incorporated into everything they do. So now she's pretty much raunch and rudness all the time, with some of the worst material I've ever heard being put out there. Homophobic or not, I can't even bring myself to care.
