The star shared sexy bikini shots of herself sunbathing.
Rihanna cannot wait for summer, and understandably so. Those of us living in the sad, cold winter states faced three Noreasters this season and its incredibly safe to say that like RiRi, we are #overit.
But the Barbados native seems to have found warmer weather somewhere. On Wednesday, the pop star-turned-fashion and beauty entrepreneur shared sexy bikini shots of herself sunbathing.
At first swipe, we noticed only RiRi's gorgeous natural long locks, plus that wild animal-print bottom, which looks a lot like several Charlie By MZ pieces she wore a few years back. In the comments, fans of course were quick to praise her, writing things like, “Does she just open a camera and its an automatic good angle,” and “You so hot.”
But apparently, some eagle-eyed fans also spotted a bit of hair, speculating that Rihanna didnt shave her legs for the photo opp. “ l love the fact that her legs are hairy!” one commenter wrote, with another adding, “When you cant shave your legs #nohate.”
Fans on Twitter reacted to the shot as well, inspiring some to declare what we suggest should be called #NoShaveSummer.
To us, the backlit photo isnt all that hairy (doesnt it just look a healthy layer of peach fuzz?), but we're all for RiRi fans embracing their body hair.
Better yet, Rihannas gram also inspired fans to be body positive. Some followers noticed lines on her behind that theyre calling stretch marks, again praising RiRi for flaunting her body in all its natural glory.
“Thank you for not editing these pictures and taking out your stretch marks,” one fan wrote, with others adding, “Look at them beautiful stretch marks” and “Them stretch marks though.”
Others werent convinced, writing that the sunlight had created an illusion.
So whats the verdict? After a fan called out the lines on her butt, Rihanna herself chimed in, confirming that while she indeed has marks, were simply looking at the suns rays in the photo. “I got stretch marks but dats the sun,” she wrote.
Regardless, the fact that shes inspired over 3 million people whove liked the photo to a) stop shaving and b) accept their body image is pretty badass, if we do say so ourselves.
