Rihanna has never had a problem standing her ground and speaking her mind, and many have taken note. Rihanna is famous not only for her continuing star power, she is also known as one of those celebrities who use their platforms for the greater good. She speaks her mind and calls out individuals by advocating for the rights of the disenfranchised and wronged. She is not at all concerned with who agrees or disagrees with her and will let you know it by using her comical and witty snapbacks.
The pop music maven, otherwise known as badgalriri on Instagram, has 63.7 million followers on the social media site, launched a bomb cosmetics line in September 2017 inclusive of many shades and ethnicities, will soon debut a lingerie line that caters to a wide span of body types and is killing it in the music and movie realm.
Rihanna just landed a spot on Time Magazine’s list of the 25 Most Influential People on the Internet. She previously placed on Time’s 2018 Top 100 list under the icons category.
Another musical great, Adele sang her places in the original edition, released in April:
“I actually can’t remember the first time I met Rihanna; I was probably numb from the shock of it. She is one year older than me, but I feel like she’s been around forever. The progression of her superstardom feels steady, well deserved and extremely natural. She burst onto the scene with the absolute banger that is “Pon de Replay” in 2005, so young and breathtakingly beautiful. But the first time it felt like she made everyone sit up was with “Umbrella.” It crossed her over to every platform and into everyone’s lives. It felt like she had truly arrived, and she hasn’t slowed down since. Even more, she has designed and conquered an entire lane of her own. The innovative and groundbreaking world of Rihanna that no one else will ever be safe in and get away with copying. She makes her own rules and bends ours.”
“Whenever I’ve met her, she’s been the most gracious, loyal and funny goofball of an icon. She glows like when someone’s taken a picture with a flash and you’re dazed for a few minutes after. But it’s also very clear in that glow that she genuinely doesn’t give a f-ck; she’s fearless and full of all the right kind of attitude to be everything that she is and will be forever,” says the Grammy-winning singer and songwriter, Adele.
