Rihanna's Instagram draws a lot of traffic for its photos of the pop star in various states of undress and on various party scenes around the world, but yesterday she used the social network to show a different side of herself. Rih Rih posted a snapshot of a handwritten letter to her fans reflecting on her years as an artist.
"Dear Navy," it begins, using the pet name for her supporters. "We continue down this road together, strong, united, uncensored and fearless. There's no question that life throws us curve balls, we do our best to deal with them, take the lessons and keep it moving without regrets!"
Later in the letter, Rihanna vows not to take any moment of her journey for granted. She also encourages followers to not let anything "shake your core."

We continue down this road together, strong, united, uncensored and fearless. There's no question that life throws us curve balls, we do our best to deal with them, take the lessons and keep it moving without regrets!
Throughout 7 years and 7 albums, there has been so much to be happy about, many fun filled moments... As we continue this journey together, we'll write new stories, share more laughs, meet new people, tell more stories, in faith in hope and take not one moment for granted.
I look forward to embarking on this ride with you, unwilling to sacrifice what we believe in, taking our lessons and growing from them. Don't let one thing shake your core. Let our inspirations drive us, never steering from who we truly are...
We are all Unapologetic...
