Occupation: Singer

Nationality: Barbadian

Born: February 20, 1988 (27)

Barbadian singer Rihanna first broke onto the scene in 2005, ultimately cementing her place amongst pop royalty with the 2007 release of the Grammy-award winning song 'Umbrella'. The track topped charts around the world, including the Billboard Top 100 and the UK singles chart, where it stayed at No. 1 for ten consecutive weeks. Rihanna has notched up a further 13 US No. 1s in her career and six top five albums, all while maturing as a recording artist and experimenting with different images and sounds.

Rihanna appeared in the headlines for all the wrong reasons in February 2009 after then-boyfriend Chris Brown was charged with domestic assault and graphic photos of her injuries began to circulate. The pair reunited briefly in 2013.

Rihanna has also made ventures into fashion, designing product lines for Armani and River Island and acting as a mentor and co-executive producer on reality show Styled to Rock. She has appeared in movies such as Battleship and This is the End.
