RIRI HITS BACK AT THE HATERS
They don’t call her Bad Gal Riri for nothing…
Oh Ri, as much as we loved your reinvention earlier this year (bagging an award at Harvard and becoming a successful actress overnight) we have been craving your old ways. Which is why we were seriously chuffed when we saw a glimpse of the bad gal we know and love – the one who ‘gives zero f**ks’ and exudes sass 24/7.
In honour of the Queen’s 91st birthday, 28-year-old Ri took to Instagram last weekend to post a string of images of the Queen’s face superimposed onto her body. Naturally, the pictures caused a stir, with followers calling Rihanna ‘offensive’ and ‘a silly little girl’. One user commented: ‘This is just disrespectful she is our monarch who has ruled for 65 years.’ Another observed: ‘Riri has gone rogue’.
If that wasn’t enough, Ri posted a quote a few days later reading: ‘If we together & ya ex die & you cry… u single.’ Obvs this didn’t go down well, but she took the opportunity to shut down her critics, – something she hasn’t done for ages, not even during the whole Drake and J-LO drama earlier this year. After one user commented: ‘Not all relationships end badly, how is it bad to care for someone you have a deep connection with?’ Ri replied: ‘Bravo witcho fake deep a**! Lemme guess, u still waiting for da “hey big head” text right?! …Don’t worry, one day you’ll find this funny.’
We’re glad Ri’s back on form, but what’s sparked the bad gal’s return? ‘Rihanna likes causing controversy,’ says our source. ‘She knew it was going to cause a stir, but she’s bored, especially of these stupid little girls. She misses being on tour and is finding acting requires as much patience as modelling. She always gets into trouble during downtime periods.’
One person who thinks Ri’s still the ‘queen of everything’ is ex-beau Drake, who’s been in the spotlight lately after claims that he impregnated Instagram model Layla Lace. His team insist that Layla and Drake have never met.
‘Rihanna feels like she’s been humiliated by Drake,’ says our source.‘especially after he said he loved her, then retracted it several times last year. Plus she’s got Chris Brown in touch, while ex-boyfriend Travis Scott has his sights set on Kylie Jenner. She’s sick of these guys.’
It’s not the first time Ri’s let off steam following boy drama. In May 2011 – after she and Chris started following each other again on Twitter – a fan tweeted: ‘I never thought you would go back to him! You better not, it’s your life but you do have ppl that look up to you.’ ‘It’s f**kin twitter, not the altar! calm down,’ snapped Ri. Ouch.
Note to selves: never get on the wrong side of Rihanna…
