Why? Well, according the singer, "Grey is the new black! Blondies, it's quiet for y'all! #brrr."
Revealing her hair shade swap on Instagram this morning, Riri called her new colour 'ice-grey-ish' (sexy, eh?) before explaining the vibe that she's going for with the line, "Everything feels like touch down on a rainy day."
Quoting James Blake's Life Round Here? Possibly. Which is admirable. But in the midst of a hot summer, we can't help thinking this icy new 'do is a tad too sombre.
What do you think? Feeling Riri's new hair colour?
