Despite the fact that she's a multi-millionaire global pop icon, Rihanna has always seemed that little bit more relatable to most mega-stars (see also: sneaking a naggin into the Grammys).

She proved it once again yesterday when posting a picture of herself in tiger-striped bikini bottoms to Instagram. When one commenter complimented her 'tiger stripes', referring to her bikini, Rihanna mistook their meaning to be a reference to her stretch marks, and replied 'I got stretch marks but that's the sun' with a laughing emoji.

It didn't take long for fans to respond positively, praising her about being open about her normal body - both the good and the supposedly 'bad' parts.
