Rihanna Hair: New Blonde Do for ELLE
Courtesy Rihanna; PictureGroup

We all know Rihanna can Talk That Talk, but who knew she was a Gossip Girl too?

When the singer debuted a sneak peek at her new platinum do (which she’ll sport on an upcoming cover of ELLE), we couldn’t help but think of another towheaded trouble maker: Taylor Momsen.

With that chunky fringe and stained pout (not to mention that major ‘tude!), Rihanna is the spitting image of a good Upper East Sider gone bad.

But while the look may not be permanent (as we all know, she’s quite the quick change artist), it’s not exactly temporary either: “bleach + weave” she Tweeted a curious fan. Tell us: Who looks better with a platinum fringe?

She looks like Tina Turner, not Taylor. And can’t we wear a shirt?

No resemblance with the hairstyles, but Rihanna is so beautiful that she can wear her hair any which way and it looks fabulous.

I like Rihanna’s new style, but I don’t see any similarities to Momsen’s. A lot of women hair blonde layered hair. I agree with Noshedoesn’t, it looks a lot like the style Tina rocked in the 80’s, just updated.

Go back to short and black,and leave it alone.

When I first saw photo thumbnail I thought it was an ill Goldie Hawn. Rihanna – natural is always better.
