If you thought the Caribbean was populated with people who spend their days loafing about drinking rum and eating pineapple, you’re wrong and possibly a bit racist. Rihanna has had four albums in her short career, a string of number ones and sell out world tours.
Her exotic, elfin looks and penchant for wearing PVC cat suits has cemented her place in our hearts. There is also the small matter of Umbrella her dangerously catchy mega hit which left men across the world surreptitiously tapping there feet while nursing erections and flicking between the music channels to catch the bit in the video where she gets water chucked on her.
With 11 million albums sold world wide, and the full might of Jay-Z’s Def Jam records behind her, Rihanna can do no wrong. Woman want to be her and men want be with her… or at least smell her hair in a lift.
Rihanna had to ban fans from bringing umbrellas to her UK concerts, as there were fears of lawsuits featuring detached retinas and nosebleeds.
She’s had her legs insured for a million dollars. Marry her, take her ice-skating and clean up.
Barbados hosts a national holiday every year in her honour, for which she performs a free concert for fans.
