What Do Rihanna's Weird Photoshopped Pictures of the Queen Even Mean?
Internet, calm right down about Rihanna's tribute to the royal family, because she's just doin' her.
Last week, on Queen Elizabeth's 91st birthday, RiRi celebrated by sharing a series of Photoshopped pics of the monarch to her Instagram. They were all photos of some parts of the queen mashed up with some parts of herself, meaning there were skimpy outfits involved. It was definitely weird, but is it wrong that we're sort of into it?
There's just something kind of hilarious about seeing Queen Elizabeth's stoic face attached to Rihanna's miles-long legs. Also there's this one where Queen ElizaRhi is holding a 40 with her boobs out in a bodega, and that's just the kind of quality humor the internet exists for. Sorry, not sorry.
Some people are super not here for it, because they say it's disrespectful to the queen. And yeah, maybe they have a point. But everything we know about Queen Elizabeth tells us she can take a joke, so we're not going to jump on the rage train until we know she's mad, because we kinda suspect she's not mad.
Also, Rihanna and Prince Harry are, like, best friends, so she probably cleared this with him. Maybe. OK, probably not. But she's got an in with the royal family, so this is probably fine.
Happy birthday, Queen Liz! Please don't be mad at Rihanna, kthx.
