Phuck Yo Skin Cancer: Rihanna Signals the Tan Line's Return

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Rihanna is trying to tell the world something—something big—but Instagram is getting in the way (mostly because the message is written across her boobs and boobs are no-go on the social site). The message is that tan lines are happening in a big way, so hurrah skin cancer?

See Rihanna below, all tan lines and tatts, in the very nekkid spread for French magazine LUI. If you appreciate a little more left to the imagination re: RiRi, then take a look at the Vogue Brazil May 2014 feature. It's slightly less NSFW. Slightly.
