She's never been shy about her love for legendary artist Bob Marley, and it looks as if Rihanna's penchant for the singer has inspired her latest 'do - dreads!

Always changing up her locks, RiRi's new coif, which she debuted on last night's (May 23) "American Idol" finale, seems to have been a want of hers for a long time.

When prodded about why she chose this particular style of tresses, the "Talk That Talk" lady responded, "their HOT! ;)” [I've wanted them] since I was 14, but mama Fent'z wasn't havin it! Hehe."

So what do you think about Rihanna's dreads? While we're still up in the air about it here at DIY, we do know one thing - if anyone can rock 'em, it's surely Ri!
