Rihanna Pimple

When it comes to perfect human beings, Rihanna comes pretty close. And while that's a lot of pressure to put on someone, she rises to the occasion just about every time. So when she revealed a pimple to the world via her Instagram, the reactions were hilarious. But Riri had something to say to the haters, and it's nothing short of what we'd expect from the queen. 

In 2020, we're letting our pimples breathe.

Does Rihanna really have flaws?

We're going to all have to agree, no. The beauty, singer, beauty and fashion mogul, and all-around star is the girl that just about everyone wants to be. Even more, it's that "don't care" attitude that makes everyone love her even more. Her outspoken nature takes her even higher into icon status. 

Well, shocker, folks. She gets pimples. 

Early this week, she posted a fresh-faced selfie to commemorate the New Year. "First selfie of the year doe. #2020," she captioned the photo that also featured some super-crisp braids and a chill hoodie. Also present was a visible blemish on her chin. And had she been anyone else, people probably wouldn't have noticed, but we all know that Rihanna isn't just anybody. 

But it's how she handled the critiques that has everyone singing her praises. 

"Let me pop your pimple," one eager fan strangely commented. Must we mention that it wasn't a blackhead or whitehead, so popping it really wouldn't serve the star's skin any good. But of course, Badgal had a quick response ready. "Let her have her shine, PLEASE," she responded. 

Only something a queen would say. 

Bye, haters.

Everyone is entitled to a zit, including Rihanna. So in 2020, we're letting our zits have their shine! No more shame, no more hiding, just showing the world that we're human. 

However, we still don't have an album.

While we're excited about the selfies, don't let this distract you from the fact that she promised us an album in 2019 that never came. "Rihanna dead ass posting things on her social media that aren’t links to a single or album and thinks it’s funny," someone hilariously tweeted. Where is the music?!
