On Saturday night, at the March Madness Music Festival in Indianapolis, Rihanna decided to air her opinions on Indiana's controversial Religious Freedom Restoration Act like only Robyn Rihanna Fenty could. "Who's feeling these new bulls*** laws that they're trying to pass over here? I say f*** that s***," she yelled on stage. "We're just living our motherf***ing lives, Indiana!" she said, before breaking into T.I.'s "Live Your Life."

So spoke Ri. And the Rihanna Navy of Indiana agreed. "F*** that s***," they chanted back.

Although the wording of the "religious freedom" law was revised on Thursday — in response to national outrage over its apparent assertion of the right of business owners to discriminate against LGBT individuals — the law is still under intense criticism for its failure to protect LGBT rights. Discrimination against LGBT individuals is still legal in Indiana, and Ri isn't the only one speaking out about that.

Something that also happened during Rihanna's performance: she debuted the full-length version of her new single, "American Oxygen." (Now streaming exclusively on, you guessed it, Tidal.) You may have missed that little piece of news — because Rihanna took on the government of Indiana. Preach, Ri, preach.
