Rihanna Responds To That Dress Controversy, Tweets Gold

Rihanna showed up to the CFDA Awards this week draped in Swarovski crystals and not much else. Somehow, the world, despite all that crystal-shrouded nipple she flaunted, is still turning. The sun has risen and set; the moon has done the same; and life continues. Sure, the dress that history books will forever refer to as simply "that dress" caused a bit of a stir, but Rihanna's gone and turned the other cheek — as any bad girl would and should. But, not before she snuck in a final word.
Since Instagram's @badgalriri still resides six feet beneath the digital ground (RIP), RiRi's Twitter account has become her platform of choice to showcase how much she really doesn't give a you-know-what. How she came across the Family Guy interpretation of that dress remains a mystery. All the world has is Twitter-proof that Rihanna (or some designated Internet crawler from her team) found it, cackled (maybe), and released it to the world. "He gets it!" she said and shared a diptych of her and a Rihanna-fied Peter Griffin.
Somewhere, a slow clap is echoing across the lands, congratulating Rihanna on her sense of humor. "She gets it," a voice from the celebrity heavens whispers. And, just like that, with the tap of a Twitter-happy finger, #NippleGate2K14 comes to a close. (People)
