It was a day like any other, and yet it wasn't. Singer Rihanna, who was previously disabled from Instagram after posting a series of NSFW photos from her shoot with French magazine Lui, returned to the photo-sharing app on November 2, and her glorious account was restored nearly in full. It was also Halloween weekend.
After six long months and a hard summer of Rihanna RIHmoved, she posted first an upside-down selfie, then a drawing of herself holding hands with the Insta icon, and then so, so many pics of Ninja Turtles costumes. Kowabunga. BadGalRiRi is back.
