WHY IS SHE FAMOUS
Even if Rihanna seems to have a bit of a stutter (ella, ella, eh eh eh) who wouldn't want to stand with her under her umbrella? Rihanna brought a little Caribbean heat to the summer of 2005 with the smash hit "Pon de Replay." She instantly caught the attention of the likes of Jay-Z and Sean Paul, and in 2007, when she released her third album, Good Girl Gone Bad, all signs indicated she would be a massive success. Her fourth studio album was released in November 2009, entitled Rated R, and it is Rihanna's highest selling debut in the U.S. yet.
"That was a moment for me because I used to be in that position. I would see a star and just beg for their autograph. And then for people to be asking me, I felt honored., on being mobbed by her fans."
83 SEX APPEAL
We love a girl with a voluptuous body, and Rihanna's dance skills demonstrate how flexible and limber she can be. She started hitting AskMen.com's Top 99 Women charts at the tender age of 18, coming in at No. 20 in 2007, No. 8 in 2008 and No. 8 in 2009. We could describe her sexiness all day, or you could Google her music video for "Rehab," featuring Justin Timberlake, and watch her roll around the hood of a red convertible in a green bikini and get an idea for yourself.
Rihanna's sudden and meteoric rise made American Idol hopefuls look like seasoned crooners who had spent a decade on the road before hitting the big time. A native of the island of Barbados, Rihanna lived an average life and barely even dreamed of show business before she was discovered in late 2003.
Despite her total lack of professional singing experience, Rihanna was snapped up by Def Jam, and had a hit with her single "Pon de Replay" in 2005. She quickly followed this up with the release of her debut album, Music of the Sun. Rihanna wasted no time in putting out a second album, A Girl Like Me, the following year, and her third album, Good Girl Gone Bad, took listeners by storm in 2007 with a slew of hit singles including "Umbrella" and "Don't Stop The Music."
Rihanna's instant success wasn't all luck, though. Her talent is undeniable, and her personality is determined yet appreciative. All it took was the perfect mix of circumstances, blended together like a good callaloo (one of Rihanna's favorite Caribbean dishes).
Robyn Rihanna Fenty was born in the parish of Saint Michael, Barbados, on February 20, 1988. Growing up, Rihanna led a relatively simple, average life on her island home. She attended Combermere, a kind of technical high school, and, despite having a natural singing talent, she didn't give much thought to performing -- aside from singing with her friends for fun.
At one point, though, Rihanna did enter a beauty and talent pageant at her school. Singing Mariah Carey's "Hero" as part of the talent component, Rihanna went on to win the competition. But that performance -- and singing in the shower or in front of the mirror -- was the extent of her musical experience before 2004.
