Rihanna Just Debuted Long Blonde Hair

Rihanna has departed from her iconic pixie cut and is going blonde. Her new hair (or wig, who knows?) debut came with two gifts in one. 

On Thursday, November 5, Rihanna announced a reissue–a “Rih-issue,” if you will–of her entire catalog on vinyl. In an animated video on Instagram, she teased the rerelease of some of her biggest hits (namely, “Diamonds,” “Work,” “Umbrella,” “Where Have You Been,” “Pour It Up,” and “We Found Love”). All eight albums of her catalog are available for preorder on brightly colored vinyl, shipping on November 11. From A Girl Like Me to Anti, no era of Rihanna will be left untouched! (Personally, I’m eyeing the Rated R vinyl.)

In an accompanying post, we see Rihanna sprawled out on a shag carpet in a vinyl-records library, sporting a new blonde hair color. The new ’do highlights her face while maintaining her dark roots. 

Her outfit includes ’70s-inspired high-heeled platform boots and what looks like an edgy band T-shirt. She captioned the post, “‘Today’s kids will never know what vinyl is’, they said!” Confirmed: She’s carrying the vinyl industry on her back. 

Rih is no stranger to a dramatic hair switch-up for promo purposes. On November 1, the official end to Spooky Season, Rihanna proudly declared that the “holiday szn bout to be Xtra af” with a themed Savage x Fenty photo shoot. She posed in a purple Savage set with chandeliers, the glamorous spirit of the holidays incarnate. The pièce de résistance: her butt-length dark brown mullet. And who can forget in 2010, when she debuted bright red hair to promote her album Loud? What a time to be alive! 

While this announcement may not be the ninth Rihanna album we’re all waiting for, don’t lose heart! Patience is a virtue, and new music from an icon is worth the wait.
