It may be Rihanna's special day, but really, she's the one who has given us a gift.
Along with providing fans with music that makes you feel bad AF, and always looking absolutely beautiful (seriously, sometimes it's a little annoying how perfect she is), RiRi has also become an inspiration when it comes to embracing our inner bad gal.
The Barbados beauty has never been one to let society's pressure to cover up stop her from flaunting her enviable bod or owning her sex appeal, and even when faced with raised eyebrows over her racy image, Rihanna continuously faces the criticism head-on (Prime example: "Do my t-ts bother you?").
She also told Vogue back in 2014, "If I'm wearing a top, I don't wear a bra. If I'm wearing a bra, I just wear a bra," and has proven that to be true time and time again in the last two years (again, see example above).
So, in honor of her 28th birthday today, let's take a look back at the singer's drool-worthy pictures, which not only serve as some serious eye candy, but also remind us that it's not a crime to feel sexy.
