Just 24 hours ago, a thought occurred to me that has occurred multiple times over the past six months, as I tapped "badgalriri" into my Instagram search bar in the futile hope that Rihanna's profile would be restored. RiRi was banned from the service back in May after she shared some nipple-baring shots from her LUI magazine shoot, resulting in a brief #FreeTheNipple campaign lead by Scout Willis and a period of mourning for her near-13 million followers. Serendipitously, it seems today is the day the wait is over: @BadGalRiRi is back, and we're finally "RIHunited." Here's to more of this, this and this. Welcome back BB!
