15 Secrets About Rihanna

Rihanna has been the hottest thing in music for what seems like ever now. You can pretty much pick one of her singles and relate it back to a significant time in your life ("Love the Way You Lie" was my high school anthem). For someone who always has a single on the radio, Rihanna is a super cool, down to earth kind of girl. She's an impressive success story who's making her island proud, that's for sure! 

1. Growing up, Rihanna's mother wouldn't let her wear makeup.

It's kind of funny because she went on to be a spokesmodel for CoverGirl. 

2. She had a rough childhood growing up in Barbados, as her father was a drug addict and her family didn't have a lot of money. 

3. Barbados celebrates "Rihanna Day", a national holiday on February 22nd. 

4. Her debut single was "Pon de Replay" and it peaked at number two on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. 

 Jay Z actually heard the song and thought that it was too big for Rihanna, as she was just starting out and it would be too hard to create more music as popular.

5. Her first movie appearance was a cameo in Bring it On: All or Nothing.

6. She says that eating fresh fruit and drinking lots of water is what keeps her looking so good and healthy!

7. Her inspirations are Mariah Carey and Madonna. She says that she wanted to be the "black Madonna".

8. She's obsessed with  tattoos and has many of her own. She says they speak for who a person is. 

9. She's best friends with Katy Perry, and was even asked to be her maid of honor at Katy's wedding. 

Sadly, Rihanna had prior commitments and couldn't attend. 

10. She has an estimated net worth of $90 million.

And can still kick it like the rest of us.

11. Rihanna won her first Grammy award with the song "Umbrella", and now has a total of eight Grammys!

12. She has a total of seven seven wax figures at the Madam Tussauds Museum. 

Trying to decide if this is a creepy or cool accomplishment?

13. She admits that she has to take a shot of vodka or tequila before a live show to calm her nerves.

14. She insured her legs for $1 million after she won Gillette's Venus Breeze "Celebrity Legs of a Goddess" award. 

15. She loves to go undercover at her own concerts (with her bodyguards nearby) and get as close to her fans as she can!

Imagine just casually looking over and seeing Rihanna standing right next to you??
