Rihanna is on the defense.

The singer launched a war of words against Daily Mail reporter Liz Jones after she wrote a story criticizing the pop star's behavior.

RiRi didn't mince words when she took to Instagram to respond to the less-than-flattering article.

"If you sincerely wanna help little girls more than their own parents do, here's a toxic tip: don't be amateur with your articles, you sound bitter!" she said in her post, seemingly directed at Jones.

"Role model is not a position or title that I have ever campaigned for, so chill wit dat!" she added. "I'll never portray that as perfect, but for right now it's ME!! Call it what you want."

The "Stay" singer also responded to the reporter's nickname for the star.

"Toxic was cute," she retorted. "Poisonous Pop Princess had a nice ring to it, just a lil wordy!"

Well, then, we're sure RiRi felt better after getting that off her chest!
