A Look into Rihanna’s Lesser-Known Life

Rihanna was born in Saint Michael, Barbados in 1988 and grew up there with her family. She started her career by moving to the U.S. back in 2005. Since she’s arrived, she has won over 150 Awards, achieved multiple Guinness World Records, and even started two charities. We all remember her popular songs like ‘Umbrella’ and ‘Run This Town.’ She has collaborated with many different recording artists such as Drake, Eminem, Kanye West, Ne-Yo, and Calvin Harris.

When she first got to the U.S., she signed with Def Jam Records, eventually working with the infamous Jay-Z. She isn’t only known for her music career. Rihanna is well known for being involved in humanitarian causes, entrepreneurial ventures, and the fashion industry. She actually founded two different charities and opened two companies of her own. Fun fact: she wouldn’t allow fans to bring umbrellas into her concert so that no one got hurt trying to copy her dance moves. These are just a few things about Rihanna that I found interesting.
