The first recorded use of the hashtag #carefreeblackgirls came from writer Zeba Blay on Twitter in 2013 as a way for Black girls to express their individuality and pride.
As writer Jamala Johns wrote in an article for Refinery29, “By putting the word ‘carefree’ front and center, it’s making a statement that we don’t want to be solely defined by hardships and stereotypes so we can enjoy our lives as we please.”
Rihanna has centered her entire career around that premise.
RiRi doesn't allow anyone to dictate what music she makes, how she wears her hair, or what comes out of her mouth. It's been inspirational to see a Black woman be unapologetically herself and not let society force certain labels on her.
As a prime example of the "CFBG" movement, we're honoring all the times she's wowed us with her carefree mentality.
When she sang about her BDSM fantasies in her "S&M" music video.
And who could forget Rihanna doing her OWN model walk at the 2012 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show?
When she told off paparazzi after they tried to ask her for free tickets.
GET 'EM, GIRL!
