Happy 21st Birthday. I hope you made the best out of it that you could--surrounded by friends and family and good music and good food.
I hope when I next see you in public, and whenever you start to work on your next album, you kick ass and take some names.
No one will blame you if you sue TMZ for releasing that photo...though I feel that something was bound to leak anyway. It will probably only work in your favor.
Whenever you decide to face the public, however long that will be, just remember that many of your fans have your back, and so much of the industry is with you.
Happy birthday, Rihanna.
