Rihanna shared her first selfie of 2020 on her Instagram account on Monday, January 6. She opted for a natural look as she went makeup-free in the photo, only to be ruined by a troll’s comment who talked about the acne on the “Diamonds” songstress.
In the picture, Riri was seen lounging on the sofa. She flashed her bright smile at the camera while donning a black hoodie and holding her long dark braids atop her head. “first selfie of the year doe. #2020,” so she captioned the post.
“The most beautiful soul in the universe! love u baddie boo! Happpy 2020!!!” one of her followers quickly gushed over her look in the comment section. “Raw beauty and edges is all we ask for,” someone else added.
“It’s 2020 & you look 20 sis. fenty skinnnnnn okkkkkk,” another user praised the 31-year-old Barbadian singer and her cosmetic line. “C’mon fresh face & baby hair,” read another comment.
However, one person noticed the pimple around her chin. “Let me pop your pimple,” the person wrote. The comment, which gained almost 300 likes, apparently didn’t go unnoticed by the star. She clapped back at the troll, writing back, “let her have her shine, PLEASE.”
Some people were loving her response, while others insisted that Rih’s face was still glowing and healthy despite the pimple, adding that having acne was inevitable. “We all break out!!! Even if you have the Best skincare routine- acne happens. Plus, do you see May hyperpigmentation? No her skin is f***ing even,” a fan explained.
Meanwhile, someone joked, “It looks like she tried to wipe cum off her lips but she didn’t get it all. This is a compliment, for clarification. I love it and am here for it.” One particular user found this relieving, writng, “celebs! They’re just like us!”
