Rihanna Gropes Her Crotch But It's Certainly Not the First Time — PHOTOS

Bad Gal RiRi is . . . at it again, I guess? Rihanna grabbed at her crotch recently in a social media missive. Just, you know, fingers all over the crotchal region, the words "role model" emblazoned over the mons pubis. As one does?

The photo, which you can see below, is bound to get some people clutching desperately at their pearls, denouncing Rihanna yet again as a sign of the coming apocalypse. But really, this just seems to be Rihanna doing Rihanna — no double entendre intended. This picture may be risqué to the pearl-clutchers of the world, but at this point it's pretty much par for the course. In fact, at this point it's like deriding Miley Cyrus' love of sticking her tongue out — or her shared interest in touching her crotch in public. It's practically a part of their brands.

Of course, you gotta acknowledge the whole package: Rihanna may not be shy when it comes to showing the world her body — but she's also not shy showing the more "family-friendly" side of herself. Literally: Look through Rihanna's recent photos, and most of what you'll see is Rihanna posing with a teeny tiny newborn relative she can't seem to get enough of. It's pretty cute. And yes, she is naked in one of them. Babies don't care.

And behold, more proof Rihanna's a fan of highlighting her crotch:

Her history is vast and . . . not all that varied.
