“Hellurrr #badgalback,” Rihanna labeled a selfie on her re-activated @badgalriri account — her long-anticipated return to Instagram. The superstar’s arrival comes six months after she closed down the accountin adispute with Instagram over a nude photo. In April, Rihanna posted several naked pictures from various magazine shoots, leading to a warning from Instagram that her page would be shut down if she continued to violate its policies against nude content.

Rihanna was upset and decided to leave Instagram altogether. She re-posted the controversial shots on Twitter, and then began using her Twitter account exclusively. In May, she even slammed an Instagram impostor who falsely claimed to be the performer under the name “@BADGIRLRIRI_AGAIN.” Rihanna stated at the time, “#PHAKE !!!! Let’s be clear, I do NOT have an IG account!”

On Sunday morning, Rihanna continued to promote her Instagram return. She posted a screengrab from a CNN story announcing her return, writing, “late$t new$ #2pacback.” There are rumors that Rihanna’s return may be tied to promotion ofan upcoming new album. That has yet to be confirmed.
