MEET ‘COMBAT BARBIE’, THE SEXY MARINE WHO’S FIRING UP INSTAGRAM

We’ve gotten quite familiar with Israel’s surplus of sexy military servicewomen, but Sgt. Rianna Conner of the U.S. Marine Corps just might have those hotties outgunned.

The blonde bombshell has admirably dedicated seven years of her life to serving our country, a feat for which we are truly grateful

“I just wanna be the Military-Marilyn Monroe,” the self-dubbed “Combat Barbie” states in her Instagram bio. Mission accomplished, Rianna.

The badass beauty’s all-American feed is riddled with smoldering bikini pics and selfies. It’s no wonder she’s become a full-blown internet celebrity with over 140,000 followers.

Enjoy her hottest shots below. God bless America.

Back to the picture that started it all. The one with my crazy laugh-face, that went viral. 😊🇺🇸💋 I guess maybe it was because a few years ago no one thought that Marines (or any military girl) could also be feminine/girly. Well I broke that stereotype. Which is where "COMBAT BARBIE" started, when people tried to use it to mock me. But I accepted it full-heartedly. And along with all of the positivity and support I've received, I've also received A LOT of hate. And my favorite comments over the past few years have been ones like, "You need to cover up!" & "Shame on you!" My response has always been: "Oh you're offended by me showing my body, and you want me to cover up? Oh you mean like a Muslim? Yeah, not gonna happen! I am FREE to express myself in any way I choose." THIS IS AMERICA. And we like blondes, beer, bald-eagles, bacon, boots, bullets, and ESPECIALLY b👀bies. What can I say? I'm comfortable in my skin. I am who I am. And I've also dated a few guys who told me to cover up, and tried to tell me what to wear (which is abuse btw) and they would turn right around and go after other women who showed their bodies off! (Don't you just love hypocrites 😂) My point is, you should always be yourself no matter what. And NEVER let someone try to change who you are. 👊💪 You like lookin' conservative? Right on girl. You like rockin' that bikini? RIGHT ON GIRL. 🙌 And btw my FAVORITE comment of ALL TIME has been, "What would your parents say?!" HAHA! My Gramma and Momma ALWAYS tell me, "Rock that body while it's still hot baby!!!" I'll always be this way, until I die. No one said you had to look honey. 😋👋💁🏼🌻 #CombatBarbie #BeYOU #BeYOUtiful #Girly #Feminine #Military #GirlPower #SELFLOVE #MissAmerica #SpreadPositivity #NeverBeenaHater #Throwback #2015 #AMERICA #FREEDOM #Maxim #FHM #Chive #LikeGrandmaLikeGranddaughter

I wish I had some pictures of the Marine Corps base evacuation for the hurricane, but I don't. And you wanna know why? Well, because mid evac this morning we got news that where we're headed to (Albany, Georgia) is supposed to get hit harder by the hurricane than where we're currently at in South Carolina. So, each place is going to get hit, and even though half of us are now in Albany, and half of us are still here at Parris Island, the General told us to bunker down for the night, and we'll see how this plays out by morning… So, I'm currently sitting on the floor in my uniform, eating an MRE, after 18 hours of nonstop running around craziness…🙃 Oorah Marine Corps. 🇺🇸 So here's a random selfie from a happier day…😜🌻👑 #Friday #ItsLit 😭 #HopeYoursIsBetterThanMine #CombatBarbie #BikiniContest 👑 #Winner #SC #MixedGirls #HurricaneSeason #TheSouth #Military #HurryUpAndWait #NoWeekendForMe 🤷🏼‍♀️⛈ #GoAwayIrma #NobodyLikesYou #YouTooJose ⛈😂

This is the product of 3 days of lifting weights, after not going to the gym for 4 months straight and only doing cardio. I turned my arms from literally just skin and bones to baby biceps. How in just 3 days? IDK…I think it might have something to do with genetics on account of my dad being a Golden Gloves Boxing Champion…I guess I got some of his Mexican-American fighting blood..😜 Lol Anyway, everyone's body is different, and we're all beautiful in our own way, whether you're a couch potato or a fitness freak. All I know is that I feel good. And I can't even imagine what I would look like if I actually went to the gym everyday for 3 weeks, or even 3 months…lol I guess we'll see.. 😊💪💋🇺🇸 #CombatBarbie #RiannaConner #Marine #Sgt #HappyMonday #Italian #Mexican #MixedGirls #GoldenGloves #Boxing #Lifting #Cardio #AMERICA #Maxim #FHM #Chive

"I don't mind living in a man's world, as long as I can be a woman in it. The best thing that ever happened to me is that I am a Woman. That's how all females should feel." 💋👑 -Marilyn Monroe -I will never apologize for being feminine/girly, and displaying my self-love. 🌻 I am unapologetically myself, and I know that really bothers some people. But I'm not intending to offend anyone, I've just always been this way, and I will always be this way. If I could, I would spend my life in a bikini 24/7. My grandma raised me this way. She has shown me that you can indeed work your butt off all day with the boys, and still be a sexy girly girl on your off-time. I ask you this: If I can't be myself, who can I be? 😊 –Thank you for the super soft skin @recoco_llc! It's the best coconut oil I've tried! ✨ #LikeGrandmotherLikeGranddaughter #CombatBarbie #SelfLove #BeYOU #Happiness #MarilynMonroe #MyIdol #BesidesMyGrandma #TattooedGirls #Tatted #WaterBaby #WarmWater #TheSouth #IJustWannaSpendMyWholeLifeInaBikini #LoveTheSkinYoureIn #Confidence #Italian #Mexican ✨✨ @recoco_llc @recoco_llc @recoco_llc ✨✨

She Left the Marines to Become a Model. Looks Like It Worked Out Pretty Well

Shannon Ihrke, 29, joined the Marine Corps when she was just 19. She dedicated four years to the service but has since begun down a different path. Ihrke is now an Instagram sensation with a fanbase of over 65,000 followers after trading her fatigues for a bikini and pursuing a career as a model, showcasing her athletic physique.As reported by the Daily Mail, the Marine Corps veteran was happy being “one of the guys” during her time as an Administrative Specialist while on active duty in the military. She says her time in the service left her feeling “smarter, faster, and stronger.”

Ihrke stated, “I pushed my body harder than I could have ever imagined and I learned to remain calm and collected in the midst of chaos,” continuing, “I became part of something that was bigger than myself, and I loved it.”She reached the rank of sergeant during her time in the Marines and attributes her experience with developing her work ethic, which helped her succeed in her new career.“It gave me a reason to wake up, push myself, set goals, and to push myself even harder when things got tough,” said Ihrke.

“Had I not had other dreams I still wanted to accomplish in my life, I would have reenlisted without hesitation.” She added, “Although I am no longer on active duty, I will always bleed green.”Discussing her experience as a model, Ihrke said, “In the modeling world, you have to push yourself to success because no one is going to do it for you, you have to go out and get it yourself.”

She also asserts that modeling has allowed her to feel “feminine and sexy,” something she didn’t experience much as a Marine.

“When I was in the Marine Corps, I very much felt like one of the guys. I did my best to blend in with the Marine around me, I didn’t want to stand out just because I was a female. I wanted to stand out because I was a stellar Marine.”Ihrke has also seen success outside of Instagram and has posed for a variety of men’s magazines since starting her new career.

Dancers prefer the Harley Quinn costume for its ‘incredible twerk potential’

A group of Russian dancers from the Olia Leta dance studio have made a name for themselves with high definition twerking videos. In honor of this year’s most popular female Halloween costume, the girls donned the infamous Harley Quinn outfit from the 2016 movie Suicide Squad. You’ll probably hate the music, but don’t worry the video plays just fine on mute.

My mother just called me asking me to CHANGE MY NAME because of all you catty tifton people gossiping and putting ideas in her head. I'm not headed towards porn.. I'm not disrespecting myself. ALL YOU MOTHERS (and apparently men) OUT THERE UNFOLLOW ME and keep your nose where it belongs. This is absurd. You women need something better to do than bring my mother down and make her feel like she has a reason to be embarrassed of her own daughter. I'm not hurting my family, YOU GUYS ARE. Please, STOP. Leave my family ALONE! This shit is pissing me off. Everyone talking shit about my pictures that live in my hometown UNFOLLOW me. What I do and my family is none of your business and you're tearing me apart from my family and that's more disgusting than anything I could ever post on here. #mindyourOWNbusiness
