After eight long months, Rihanna has finally made her return back to Instagram.
The singer was the target of controversy in April when she posted on IG steamy semi-nude pictures from her photo shoot with Lui Magazine. Since the photos broke Instagram’s strict code of policy on nudity, the pics were taken down and Rihanna left Instagram and her 12 million followers. With the site off her radar, the star has given fans a look into her life and thoughts via Twitter and recently invaded her friend’s IG page to prove she can throw down in the kitchen.
RiRi decided to give the site another chance early Sunday morning when she popped up on IG with a selfie. The singer’s Twitter page gave away the good news when she posted a link back to the site.
“Hellurrr #badgalback” she captioned the photo.
Rihanna also posted a photo of a drawing from an artist who perfectly illustrated her love-hate relationship with the site. During RiRi’s absence, many pages have appeared pretending to be the Bajan beauty. From @Rihanna to @mygirlRi, the pages racked a combined total of 1.3 million followers, proving that the singer’s presence was greatly missed. She also made headlines over her former flame Chris Brown “liking” fan-made photos of the two in bed together.
Fans took to Twitter to welcome the singer back to Instagram. Take a look at her selfie and fan reactions above.
