Rihanna has been making the headlines lately. There was that $160,000 purchase of a Marilyn Monroe Swarovski crystal artwork, numerous basketball game appearances, and the announcement that she’ll be getting her very own fashion reality series. Well, just to go ahead and toss an albino cherry on top of this Ri-Ri press parfait, she recently tweeted a photo of her new platinum blonde hairdo. Oh, and she included a full body shot with thigh-high boots and casually mentioned that she’s going to be on the cover of Elle. Also, is it just us or is she totally, completely, and utterly nakie nudie in that photo above?

One thing’s for sure, Ri has a healthy dose of self-confidence. She should! When you’re a total babe who is the toast of pop music (not to mention a finder of love in hopeless places), why not bathe in the glory of youth, endless beauty products (seriously, look at those gorge lip shades above), and self-promotional twitpics of your possibly topless self? As she mentions in the caption of the full body-shot where she wears an off-the-shoulder white sweater and Levi’s cutoffs, the look is “stripperish”, and we’re not completely certain if she’s deliberately trying to achieve this look (and, thus, maybe going for a Method actor thing with the toplessness?) or maybe it’s all for the Elle magazine photo shoot (about lady dancers). Whatever the case may be, Rihanna’s new blonde hair is beautiful, and we think the platinum cut is sassy with those 1960s bangs and light razor-layers in the back. We’ve seen Ri go platinum before in those Armani Jeans ads, and with the rumor that she spends almost $300 a dayon her hair, we’re guessing this blonde ’do might only be around for a limited time.
