In a world where Bey and Kim K are posting G-Rated, white picket fence-y photos of their family, friends and daily activities on Instagram, one has to ask where did all the fun and scandal of the photo-sharing app go? It starting to feel like the fun fled with @Badgalriri aka Rihanna. Dear Instagram, we want her back!
Let us remind you: May 5, 2014 marked a social media disappointment as the daring, cheeky and influential Bajan songstress’ IG account was disabled. But who would do such a thing? Seemingly, Instagram didn’t care for the nude Lui magazine cover photo she posted, and in true Rihanna fashion, she was unapologetic, opting not to restore her account.
From posting twerking videos to designer gifts from the likes of Prada, Fendi, and Chanel (and of course, her fave 4:20 pasttime), she invited fans and the masses alike inside of her crazy and adventuresome world. We really seemed to know Robyn Fenty a little better. Somehow, we lived vicariously through her photos.
Yet, none of this is shocking for the Russian roulette of an artist, it’s just Rihanna. Attend one of her concerts and she’s sure to be gyrating on stage in a latex outfit or catch her court side at a basketball game with a sheer tank confidently showing off her pierced twins up top. Comfortable in her skin doesn’t even begin to explain it, Rihanna embraces her sexuality and entices audiences with her boldness and sassy Caribbean attitude.
Although she’s ditched Instagram, all eyes are on Rihanna as she recently bared it all in a barely there ensemble at the CFDA Awards where she won 2014 Fashion Icon of the Year. We’re sure she’ll have another head-turning moment in the near future, but we want all access from RiRi herself. No word if she will be joining Instagram anytime soon, but in the meantime feel free to follow her on Twitter (@rihanna) as we keep our fingers crossed for a resurgence of the baddest gal on Instagram!
