Rihanna changed her Instagram’s iconic profile picture, and all hell broke lose for her fans. This move from the Love The Way You Lie singer is making them miss her previous profile picture already.

Rihanna's previous picture consisted of a simple stick figure doodle. The doodle was black and the background consisted of white color. As per Vulture, this doodle profile picture was set in 2014, which makes it almost a decade old.

The 36-year-old singer’s new profile picture consists of a Fenty product held in front of a beach-like background and serene sun rays. The sun's rays are blocked by a hand-like figure that is holding the product. It seems that this hand-like figure is a doodle. This could be a subtle homage to her old profile picture.

Many fans are mourning Rihanna’s old profile picture. Fans are sharing their thoughts about this move by the pop star on social Media.

A fan writes on X, “Rest in peace to Rihanna’s iconic Profile. Gone but will forever be missed.” Another fan writes, “rihanna changing her iconic instagram pfp to a fenty product… now this is where we draw the line.”
