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?

YUK for both!

is it me or rihanna looks quite thin in this pic. although the colour changes are quite crazy, i think rihanna looks good in any color.its obvious thats all weave, but from red, to black…it looks decent. also her skin color seems to change everytime i see her. sometimes she looks brown and sometimes she looks so fair skinned…whats up with that?

The notion that women of color cannot/shouldn’t wear blonde hair is complete rubbish. Beyonce has been wearing blonde hair for ages, she looks amazing with it, and she’s one of the most beautiful women in the industry. And Rihanna is just as fierce with her blonde ‘do.

She looks like bride of chucky.

Really, who writes these ridiculous stories ? How in the world can you compare the two singers. Are you high ?

So ghetto is she.

Rihanna’s prime was definitely when she had her short black hair!

Obviously a wig.
