    Everyone’s taking about they prefered Rihanna with the LONG hair. It was a weave. She can always put it back. I miss the 90′s when black entertainers were “natural’. They were not afraid to rock that hairstyle Rihanna has right now, or the last one. Shoot , everyone had it. Now they all rock these stupid blond , brown weaves. No body want s to look balck anymore and I’m not speaking about complexions, cuz I’m very lightskin too and I’m black. I say GOOF FOR YOU RIHANNA. I LOVE YOU.
