If you aren’t familiar with BadGalRiRi – that is, Rihanna’s Instagram username/ Instagram persona/real-life persona(?) – we’ll forgive you if you aren't able to fully appreciate why this is such a big deal.
It’s the closest any of us are going to get to actually partying with Rihanna. And who doesn’t want to party with Rihanna? But it’s more than that. She is changing the world. BadGalRiRi is making a difference.
She was on the forefront of fighting Instagram’s nipple shaming policy.
Rihanna was a pioneer in the protest against Instagram’s stringent – and sexist – nudity rules. And now we're all outraged because Instagram violated Chelsea Handler’s civil rights to #nofilter pics of her boobs? WHERE WERE YOU FOR RIHANNA AND HER BOOBS?
One has to assume that Rihanna reactivating (RIHactivating...sorry) her account has to mean something. Most artists use their Instagram to promote their music. Could this mean we’re (finally) going to get new music from Rihanna? Or that not-so-secret secret albumBeyoncé may release next week – which supposedly includes a duet with Rihanna – is real? Or none of the above but something equally exciting?
Guess we’ll have to wait and see. But go follow BadGalRiRi now anyway.
