Happy 30th Birthday Rihanna!
From SOS to Work work work work, Rihanna has killed the charts, changed the world of fashion and has gave us some jaw-dropping moments that we still remember to date. We take a look at how the pop star has evolved across the years in homage to the big three zero.
Baby 16 year old Riri moves from her hometown Barbados to the USA. She is signed to Def Jam records and is managed by Jay-Z. Rihanna released the catchy club tune Pon De Replay (yes girls, we do have this on our #tbt playlist too) and he second album includes the screw you single, Unfaithful.
But she doesn't forget her home roots. Riri goes back to her home town to celebrate carnival, in barely there diamantes and strategically placed jewels. We have one question: where do we sign up?
It's not the Met Gala without Rihanna. From her simple clean cut Stella McCartney two piece two her yellow Chinese inspired meme-worthy cloak, she's the main focus of Meta Gala and it wouldn't be the same without her.
Rihanna made a serious statement in a sheer Swarovski crystal dress (yup, the designer hand stitched 230,000 crystals to the dress btw). Some loved it, others loved it a little bit more. This happened to be the night when Rihanna collected her CFDA award for style icon of 2014 and we couldn't agree more.
Riri has sure racked up the A-list friendship list. From her collab with Nicki Minaj and her endless on fire hits with the rap legend Eminem.
And here is the ultimate #WCW. Here's Britney and Rihanna at THAT Grammy award performance
And we really can't get over her on then off then back on then off relationship with Drake. The former couple have left us with some bangin' tunes like What's My Name? Work work work work (sorry, we had to) and Take Care. The couple have ended their relationship but we're all praying that this isn't the end of the road for their collaborations.
Last year Rihanna dived into the world of beauty products. Her make-up line Fenty launched in September of 2017. Thanks to RiRi, our highlighter is on point and is "shining bright like a diamond".
We hope Rihanna's 30s give us nothing but catchy tunes, serious twerking, tattoo inspo more fierce outfits.
