Christmas came early for Rihanna fans today. The 'Diamonds' songstress penned a personal letter of gratitude to her Navy (the name for her legion of supporters), which she shared on Instagram.

In the letter, Rih Rih thanks her loyal fan base for the support they've given to her over the course of her career.


"Throughout 7 years and 7 albums, there has been so much to be happy about, many fun filled moments," she writes. "I look forward to embarking on this ride with you, unwilling to sacrifice what we believe in, taking our lessons and growing from them."

The 24-year-old pop star ends the letter on a motivational note. "Don't let one thing shake your core," she continues. "Let our inspirations drive us, never steering from who we truly are... We are all unapologetic..."

Rihanna's seventh studio album, released last month, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 charts, selling 238,000 copies in its first week.
