“They say, you can’t turn a bad girl good, but once a good girl’s gone bad, she’s gone forever.”
Remember when Rihanna was a bright-eyed innocent island girl? Alright, we know…that’s such a distant memory, but it’s #ThrowbackThursday so we’re here to remind you.
Almost a decade ago, a then 16-year-old Rihanna burst onto the music scene with her island-inspired song “Pon De Replay.”
Nine years and seven albums later, Rihanna has evolved into a weed-smoking, award-winning, strip club-loving, trendsetting, booty-poppin’ bad gal. And we love it, but we also loved the quiet, shy Rihanna.
In honor of #ThrowbackThursday, here are 21 pictures of Rihanna when she was “good gal” RiRi. Take a trip down memory lane and remember bad gal RiRi when she was a nice, sweet Bajan gal below.
