Rihanna’s FBF is Better Than Our Best Selfie

Rihanna's Sexiest Covers
Rihanna loves showing skin on magazine covers.
How ecstatic are we that Queen Rihanna is back on Instagram?

While the 26-year-old has been up to her normal sexy (mostly topless) posting, we were pleasantly surprised by her latest #FlashbackFriday share–a snap of her tween self decked out in a floral pink shirt, barrettes and braids!

BadGalRiRi captioned the totally 90s photo, “Fla$h back. Lil’ i$land ting,” and we all collaboratively rang out in a chorus of Awwww.

…Until we realized that her tweenage FBF photo is prettier than the best, most filtered selfie we’ve ever taken.  In which we all collaboratively rang out in one giant sigh.

Meanwhile, Rih and her natural gorgeousness have taken over the editorial world lately, snagging two big covers for ELLE and Esquire UK–both of which she posed half-naked in (because she’s Rih).
