Rihanna (February 20, 1988)
Artistfacts®: You can leave comments about the artist/band at the bottom of the page.
Her real name is Robyn Fenty - "Rihanna" is her middle name.
Guys Rihanna has been linked with include Shia LaBeouf, Josh Hartnettt, Drake and Matt Kemp - he's a baseball player for the Dodgers that she went out with near the end of 2010.
She's from Bridgetown, Barbados, and was discovered when she was 16 by an American record producer named Evan Rogers, who saw her when he was on vacation there. Rogers, who was lead singer of the group Rythm Syndicate ("P.A.S.S.I.O.N.
"), was married to a Bajan woman and a regular visitor to the island. He brought Rihanna to the United States and helped her put a demo together, which got the attention of Def Jam Records and their president at the time, Jay-Z, who signed her to a deal the night she auditioned.
She doesn't demonstrate much diva behavior, but she does own at least 1,500 pairs of shoes.
Rihanna believes she has a very large forehead. She calls it her "fivehead."
She was dating Chris Brown
when he assaulted her the night before the Grammy Awards in 2009. Both had to miss the ceremony, and Brown was ordered to stay 100 feet away from Rihanna at all times. In February, 2011, a judge eased the restraining order, which Rihanna didn't contest. She explained that the assault was a personal thing, and she didn't want to hurt his career by preventing him from appearing at awards shows.
When Rihanna was the cover girl for Rolling Stone in April, 2011, she said, "I like to be spanked. Being tied up is fun. I like to be spontaneous. Sometimes whips and chains can be overly planned - you gotta stop, get the whip from the drawer downstairs... I'd rather have him use his hands."
Rihanna was Esquire magazine's "Sexiest Woman Alive" in 2011.
Rihanna was famous in America before she was well-known in her home country. She was never into the traditional music of Barbados, and her stardom on the island came with her global success.
Rihanna passed Justin Bieber on June 18, 2013 as the most-viewed artist on YouTube. At that date the 77 videos on Rihanna's official VEVO channel had clocked a combined 3.784 billion views in total, surpassing the total view counts of the 79 videos on Bieber's official VEVO channel by roughly two million views.

. His other hits include "Fame" and "All The Man That I Need."
