27 Times Rihanna Was The Baddest BadGal

Happy birthday Rih.

It's Feb. 20, which means that our favorite over-the-top, no-phucks-given pop star, Rihanna, is 27 years old. To celebrate, we're looking back at 27 moments over the past year when she was simply the baddest badgal ever.

  1. When she literally swam with a shark

    For a Harper's Bazaar cover shoot.

  2. When she stripped down for Another Magazine

    And went all Cat Woman, too.

  3. When she twerked in a see-through dress

    At 2014 CFDA fashion icon awards, because she won a trophy.

  4. When she went all Olivia Pope

    During a visit to the White House last year. Like there was any other option?

  5. When she shaded Instagram

    Because they tried to censor her.

  6. When things got way too hot

    And this is how she decided to cool down for Esquire UK.

  7. When she did the Shmoney Dance in a bikini

    And made it look really good.

  8. And some more Shmoney Dancing

    Because it still looks good.

  9. And even more Shmoney Dancing

    Who does it better?

  10. When she distracted NBA players

    By making sexual gestures courtside.

  11. When she used her hands as a bra

    For Vogue Brasil, and looked totally natural.

  12. When she shaded Donald Sterling

    For his alleged racist comments.

  13. When she looked like this in the snow

    "Cabin life."

    'Ye dropped that bombshell. And it's gonna be amazing.

  17. When she became Puma's creative director

    Now their sales will triple.

  18. When she cuddled Karl Largerfeld

    Because the Chanel designer really doesn't seem like the cuddling type.

  19. When she ran directly into a screaming mob of fans

    Rih ran headfirst into a crowd in Paris after shooting a music video. Because she's fearless.

  20. When this photo was her version of 'Merry Christmas'

    This was really her post from Barbados, on December 25.

  21. When she called Eminem an "ungrateful f--k" on their Monster Tour.
