Rihanna is back on Instagram!

(CNN) -- After a controversy over topless photos in May, Rihanna's Instagram feed went quiet for months.

But she popped back up early Sunday, posting two shots in quick succession with the hashtags #badgalback and #RIHunited.

Her sudden reappearance prompted a torrent of likes and tens of thousands of comments, many of them celebrating her return.

Some of her previous posts -- before her insta-hiatus -- had sparked outcries in places as far flung as Abu Dhabi and Thailand.

Is the pop star now going to tread more carefully with her future posts? Something tells us we shouldn't hold our breath.
