After six long months without the Bad Gal, it seems that Rihanna and Instagram have let bygones be bygones. The singer is back on the instant photo sharing site and her 12 million followers could not be happier.
Six months ago, Rihanna's Instagram suddenly went dark. It was suspected that her account was suspended due to topless and raunchy photos she posted of her topless cover shoot for Lui magazine in France, which are against Instagram's policy.
But on Nov. 2, Riri posted an upside down selfie of herself with the caption: "Hellurr! #badgalback"

She followed the post with a sketched image of herself in a black bikini and pink high-heels, holding hands with a caricature of the instagram logo, blowing her a kiss. Even the official Twitter account of Instagram, welcomed back the singer.
With Rihanna back on the social media scene, her followers can't help wonder how long this truce will last.
Riri's account was inexplicably erased, restored, reactivated, and abandoned and no one can guess what the bad girl has up her sleeve this time.
After the initial topless photo controversy broke out, Riri challenged Instagram's nudity policy by posting artwork of topless women, and even a photo of a bus that displayed her bare-topped cover that got her into trouble in the first place.
Rihanna was also previously in some hot water when she posted controversial photos of herself in Abu Dhabi, although fully clothed, her suggestive poses were not appreciated when she paid a visit to the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque Center.
Before that, she also made headlines when she posted selfies of herself with an endangered primate in Thailand. The two men who were keeping the primate illegally were arrested after her Instagram post.
Although the photos that allegedly got her suspended from Instagram have been removed, Rihanna's return to the world of photo sharing puts her back in the reigns as of the most followed celebrities online.
