Just when we thought Rihanna had pushed every style and beauty limit under the sun, she managed to surprise us once more: By debuting a brand new gray hairstyle on her Instagram.

“New color ice grey ish, call it #Brr,” she wrote on the first shot of her new locks, which appeared to be an allover ash-gray color plus some matching extensions.

In subsequent photos the star posted, it became clear that the look is a twist on ombré hair color, with dark roots fading gradually into the pale hue.

“Grey is the new black! Blondies, it’s quiet for y’all! #brrr,” she wrote on one photo, and added on another “‘Everything feels like touchdown on a rainy day.’”

Rihanna’s not the first star to go gray for fun — Kelly Osbourne did it more than a year ago, so now we’re wondering who will be next. Selena Gomez? Kim Kardashian? Kiernan Shipka?

Tell us: What do you think of Rihanna’s latest look?

She looks like the Crypt Keeper. This is even worse than that horrible fake red hair that she loved wearing so much for awhile.

This woman has a different hair length and hair color practically evey other day. This is a wig…she had dyed nothing

She always gives me the sads….I’m crying as i’m typing. Such a pretty girl why does she insist on looking like a worn out good time girl. This is not the look.

I am sorry but I don’t like the grey color- I love RIRI with blonde hair the best of all! Change is fun for summer!

Sorry PEOPLE Mag. It’s not a dye job but more likely a wig, hair extensions, etc. For one, why would anyone want to dye their hair gray? I guess the color wheel isn’t working for her in the attention department, she has resort to old lady colors now for attention.
