Rihanna's pimple receives unconditional love from fans in 'first selfie of the year'

Rihanna is marking the start of a brand new year and a brand new decade with a brand new selfie, which is receiving unconditional love from fans for the unedited pimple on her chin.

"First selfie of the year doe," she wrote in the Instagram snap alongside the hashtag "2020".

Clad in a black hoodie and sporting cornrows, RiRi who appears to be makeup-free smiles up at the camera in the wholesome snap.

And she's not just a talented singer with a pretty face - she has comedy chops too! She proved she's a savage with this hilarious burn gift for Charlize Theron:

Yep, the Bad Gal had no qualms about baring her zit to her 78 million followers - and looked stunning regardless.

And plenty of Rihanna's followers loved the photo, which accumulated over five million likes in less than a day (as of this writing).

Instagram user waladshami commented: "Really bold of u to post a selfie and not a link to the album. U deserve that pimple".

And user badririnavy joked in the comments section: "The fact that the pimple heard the album and we didn’t"

Even TV personality and YouTube star Dr Pimple Popper Sandra Lee responded to the post, saying: "Let ME pop that pimple".

Another turned the convo to a potential new album from the pop star.

"Where's your first album of the year doe? #2020," wrote the fan.

While it shouldn't be the case, female celebs are still considered "brave" for posting photos online without editing out their blemishes.

But this past summer, Rihanna saw down with Interview Magazine to talk about how she was raised to have "tough skin". The 'Umbrella' singer said:

"I have to say, I’ve always had pretty tough skin—even as a little girl, which was completely due to my parents. They never sheltered me in any way. They would tease me, and I would tease them right back. By the time I got to school, I always had this feeling like the kids were stupid. Maybe that was god’s way of preparing me for what my life was going to be like. I don’t feel any way about people’s comments."
