Rihanna Dyes Hair Blond For Elle: Love It Or Leave It? (PHOTOS, POLL)

My favorite hair color chameleon Rihanna has traded in her mousy brown curls for a bleached blond blow-out. The 23-year-old "Talk That Talk" singer tweeted a topless photo of her new 'do Thursday night with the message: "#Back2Work 1st Cover of the year!!!! #ELLE." Details on which issue have yet to be revealed.

While Rihanna is no stranger to lighter locks -- recently sporting a blond pixie wig for an Armani Jeans ad campaign and an angled bob in her "You Da One" video -- she reassured her Twitter followers that she had colored her hair for real this time, saying: "lol! I dyed it for #ELLE...bleach + weave #WERQ."

Later that night, she was spotted courtside at a basketball game between the Denver Nuggets and the Los Angeles Clippers showing off that shag, which channels Tina Turner during her "Private Dancer" era.

I'll admit that I missed the rocker RiRi with her edgy and piecey haircuts, but I'm on the fence with this look. What do you think?
