Rihanna can sing.
She’s one of those young stars (only 22) whom I am so jealous of. She has achieved so much at such a young age and totally deserves to be in the Alphanista Hall of Fame. Always dressed in the coolest outfits, she characterizes her style as dangerous and risky, refusing to be “safe”.
Not only is Rihanna beautiful and talented, she has also built a brand. Born as Robyn Fenty in Barbados, she started singing at just 7 years old, and at 15 she formed a girl group with a few classmates. Rihanna then moved to the U.S. at the age of 16 to follow her singing dreams. Since her debut in 2005. Rihanna has released lots of hits and won 3 Grammys.
She is one of the most recognized female artists in the U.S. With her constantly changing style and risqué approach to fashion and music, Rihanna is adored by her fans. She’s even taking acting classes and thinking of doing movies.
On the other hand, Rihanna’s relationship with ex-boyfriend Chris Brown seemed tumultuous. Almost a year ago, they were involved in a case of domestic violence and Chris had to post $50,000 bail. Rihanna ended the relationship but people still criticized her attitude towards the whole ordeal. They said she was too forgiving. “I actually love and care about him,” said the singer. “I want him to do well, have a great career, have a great life and grow up. And just take this as something you had to go through to grow up and learn.”
No one is perfect. Rihanna was asked in an interview if she looks in the mirror and ever says to herself, “Man I’m cute.” She replied, “No. I just pick at the bad things. Like I’ll say man my gut looks big. That’s why there are mirrors.” Not sure if I agree with her on the purpose of mirrors, but if I were her, I’d look in the mirror and be pretty happy.
Should Rihanna be nominated into the Alphanista Hall of Fame? Yay or nay?
