With talent, instincts, beauty, style, smarts and sex appeal to spare – not to mention her flawless ear for hits – Rihanna has risen from simple island girl to one of the best-selling artists ever in just a few short years. Equally fearless and vulnerable, she was born in Barbados in 1988 and signed to Jay-Z’s label Def Jam at the age of 16. Her constant reinvention and musical mixture of Caribbean influences, R&B and dance-pop has brought her worldwide fame, multiple awards and multiplatinum hits like ‘Umbrella,’ ‘Stay’ and ‘We Found Love.’ She became a famous face of domestic violence when boyfriend Chris Brown viciously beat her the night before the 2009 Grammy Awards, although RiRi refused to let the ugly incident define her public persona. A big-screen acting career and various fashion enterprises only add to her already impressive pop-culture presence.
Eminem and Rihanna certainly brought the energy with their power-packed performance of 'The Monster' at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards. The Detroit rapper and Barbadian beauty rocked the mic as they sang and rapped one of the biggest (and best) songs of 2014.
Rihanna is easily one of the most fashionable people on earth, much less one of the most fashionable celebs. She doesn't follow trends. She sets them. She doesn't have style. She is style. Those are just a few of the reasons that RiRi has been named the 2014 CFDA Fashion Icon.
Rihanna is battling a former accountant, suing him for squandering $9 million worth of her fortune back in 2009 and advising her to buy a bunk piece of property, rendering her nearly bankrupt. He is now defending himself. Additionally, actress January Jones sorta has the hots for RiRi.
The partnership between Rihanna and Eminem isn't merely one of hit singles. The twosome, who followed up the smash 'Love the Way You Lie' with 'The Monster,' will also hit the road together for this summer's The Monster Tour.
We're one step closer to determining the Greatest Pop Song of the Modern Era! In Round 1, 'N Sync beat Justin Bieber by 37 percent (!!!), while Rihanna just barely held Beyonce at bay. Now, in Round 2 of the competition, the boy band will face off against the provocateur. Which is the greater pop song: 'Bye Bye Bye' or 'Umbrella'?
Chris Brown is single… again. The singer, who is focused on his rehab and his new music, like his duet with Ariana Grande, has split with his long-suffering, on-off GF Karrueche Tran. Is Rihanna to blame?
Beyonce and Rihanna have mastered the art of creating catchy, iconic pop songs. Bey launched a fashion trend, a signature dance move and thousands of copycats with her hit 'Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It.)' Rihanna, on the other hand, started a debate on the meaning of 'Umbrella' in one of her biggest songs to date. Which song should be known as the Greatest Pop Song of the Modern Era?
