Today, let’s talk about Rihanna who is one of my favorite female stars.
R & B singer from Barbados
Known for her musical talent and fashion sense
Besides singing, she also entered the fashion, film, and television fields.
Her sideline business is very popular. Last year, she was ranked first in the world’s richest female singers.
If I say I don’t envy, then I’m lying. But I have to say that she does have talent.
Talent + effort + temperament + timing
Her success is not accidental
[At the age of 17, the first debut single was released]
She grew up in Barbados, however, her childhood experience was not very pleasant. But she loved singing since she was a child. She has an excellent singing talent and was famous in her hometown,
In 20003, Evan Rogers, a famous music producer came back to Barbados (his wife’s hometown) with his wife for a holiday. During this period, one of his friends recommended Rihanna to Evan Rogers. This producer noticed that Rihanna has talent, so he promised to give her a chance to record a demo.
Then everyone knows what happed to Rihanna later. Her first single “Pon De Replay” was popular once its release in 2005
and became the runner-up in the billboard hot 100 singles chart.
This single made young Rihanna famous in the US in one night.

What’s more, this title song also brought a huge boost for her first album “music of the sun” sales in the same year.
Later, more songs like the “umbrella”, “take a bow”, “live your life” also topped the billboard list many times.
The song “We found love” released in 2011 occupied the list leader for 10 weeks on the US Billboard Singles Chart.

She has got 8 Grand Grammy Awards, 12 National Music Awards, and 23 billboard music awards since her debut as a singer.
Her musical strength is obvious to all.
But her ambition does not stop in the music field.
[Relying on sideline business, while making the world a better place]
She entered the fashion field.
Just look at puma, you can feel her ability to bring goods and design talent.
In 2017, she launched her makeup brand-Fenty Beauty.
The brand is very popular due to its wide tolerance for skin color and gender.
The first batch of products launched more than 40 color foundations. It almost caters to the needs of people of all skin tones.
In 2018, she launched her underwear brand-Savage x, Fenty. The brand’s slogan is “all shapes, all sizes”. She wants her underwear brand to allow every woman to choose the right underwear. Because each body has a unique beauty.
I really like her attitude and thoughts. Both her makeup brand and underwear brand are very diverse and inclusive.
She supports women to live themselves. Beauty is not a single standard. Every woman can have her own beauty. Who wouldn’t love such a nice person?
[Tattoo is an addiction]
In addition to loving music and fashion, she is also fascinated by the tattoo. Tattoos are like an addiction to her
