It maybe Rihanna’s birthday today, however as millennial’s do a great job at shifting the spot light to themselves, they have found out a new trend that has now gone viral on twitter. People are googling Rihanna and their date of birth after a twitter post went viral.

Move over horoscopes and tarot card readings because, google can tell you what Rihanna was wearing and where exactly she was on the date you were born. You may or may not have noticed people on your Twitter feeds posting photos of what Rihanna wore on their birthday, and it is a startlingly accurate representation of mood, personality, and overall life.

The viral trend began after Shari, who goes by @ChipdNudePolish on Twitter, put her followers to a simple challenge: “Google Rihanna and your birthday to see which outfit you get.” Her tweet included an example, showcasing Riri at the 2016 BRIT Awards on February 25, donning a strappy lavender fringe dress.

Before you know it, a viral challenge has just begun. Soon, enough people started responding to Shari’s tweet with their own results, and it seems as though everyone was vibing with their given outfits. Forget rising sign or moon sign, I’m all about my Rihanna sign, and it seems as though plenty of others are too. At the time of writing, there are over 2,000 replies to Shari’s initial tweet — which is something that the 25-year-old Brooklyn resident did not expect. “It’s a tad bit overwhelming,” she said of her now-viral status. “I was just sitting on my couch watching the responses just roll it. I loved seeing everyone’s outfits and responses!”

This goes to prove that Rihanna serves look 356 days a year. It has be 31 years of iconic looks from Rihanna as she turns a year older today.

But on a serious note, Riri is not just a fashion connoisseur, she has been actively known to promote positive body image, especially in the recent years, after haters on the internet body shamed her for put on a healthy amount of weight. As she graced the cover of last year’s September British Vogue. In her interview for the issue with British Vogue editor-in-chief Edward Enninful, the singer/ makeupmogul got real about how it feels to be a woman so many woman want to be.  Rihanna’s comments about body image are so refreshing in the midst of the body image topics dominating the news cycle. It’s what she said that was truly the realist: “But, you know, it comes with a price. You want to have a butt, then you have a gut,” she explained. You’re speaking my language, RiRi.

Her comments and perspective to body image is so refreshing in a sense that their so real, no need for sugar coating. Our bodies are always changing, and the way they work often can’t align with the unrealistic body standards and ideals we’re bombarded with on a daily basis. Like the idea that you should have an hourglass figure, but somehow also have perfect abs and a non-existent waistline. Yeah, that’s not realistic for most people, and seeing an icon like Rihanna talk about the reality of a woman’s natural body was simply a treat.

All in all, 31 is the new 20. Happy Birthday Rihanna.
