OK, so Rihanna didn't quite go for the close shave that Kellie Pickler showed off this week, but the chart-topper did debut a drastically different 'do while making her way out of some last-minute rehearsals for the VMAs.
Rihanna, no stranger to switching up her style, is set to kick off tonight's show with the opening performance. We can't help but wonder if the cropped cut will take centerstage alongside the singer or if it will be a case of hair-today, gone-tomorrow later today.
Riri has rocked everything from long locks to a pixie cut, been red, blonde, black and plenty in between, but this is the shortest cut we can remember seeing on this superstar to date.
She finished off her casual look (she was, after all, rehearsing, not walking a red carpet) with a white Céline Paris t-shirt and choker, artistically ripped blue jeans (is there any other kind?) and Cleveland Cavalier-edition Air Jordans.
Can't wait to see how she styles herself during tonight's double-header opener, when the 24-year-old will perform both "We Found Love," and "Cockiness (Love It)," the latter alongside A$AP Rocky.
So, Rihanna Navy, do you salute this new style?
