GOOD GIRL GONE RICH: RIRI’S STORY – HISTORY MAKER

From her groovy chart-topping songs to her constantly changing trend-setter looks, Rihanna is undoubtedly one of the most influential figures of the 21st century.

To say that her success reflected very well on her financials would be an understatement, because she has officially been declared the World’s Richest Female Musician with an estimated net worth of $600 million.

This was announced in Forbes’ annual list called America’s Richest Self-Made Women. If you think this wealth was presented to her on a golden platter, you are mistaken. Here is the real story.

Robyn Rihanna Fenty had a childhood that was always going very smoothly. She was allegedly helping her father to sell clothes. Also, her parents had their own relationship issues like any other families.

She pursued a music career at the age of 15, with an amateur girl-band in Barbados and ended up sending demo records to Def Jam Recordings that was run by Jay-Z at the time.

After inviting Rihanna for an audition, Jay-Z was so impressed with her singing that he kept her waiting in the studio until the next morning so that they could draft the ideal contract for her. At the end, she signed a six-album record deal with them, which we are all grateful for.

The 31 year-old singer released eight studio albums ever since her debut in 2005 Pon de Replay. She has numerous number-1 hits such as SOS, Umbrella, Rude Boy, Only Girl, What’s My Name, S&M, We Found Love, Diamonds and Work.

She earned nine Grammy awards and several other awards. Despite her groundbreaking music career and the successful worldwide sale of 250 million records, her financial success came through her pursuit of a career in fashion and cosmetics industries.

 

She had small ventures with Armani in 2011, presenting her collections at London Fashion Week and Paris Fashion Week. She had also collaborated with Dior, Stance and Manolo Blahnik.

In 2014, she acted as the creative director of Puma’s sportswear for women. Her clothing line in Puma would go on online sale and get sold out within hours of its initial release.

She has received several awards for her work in the fashion industry such as the Fashion Icon Award in 2014.

The actual money flow was facilitated by the release of Fenty (which is also Rihanna’s surname). In 2017, her cosmetics line called Fenty Beauty was launched. According to Forbes’ statistical report, the cosmetics line generated a net income of 570 million USD in only 15 months. Congratulations are in order!

Besides cosmetics, Rihanna also released a lingerie line under the name Savage Fenty. The brand was launched in May 2019 as sub-group of the luxury brand LVMH.

The initial launch was in Paris on May 22, 2019. The following week saw the worldwide launch. The stores offer clothing and accessories from sunglasses to footwear.

Rihanna is actually to first woman of color to collaborate with LVHM and work as an entrepreneur under the company, which she sees as a blessing and a granted opportunity. 

What an inspiration!

10 Things To Do This Summer Besides Watch T.V.

All right, you lazy bum, it’s time to surgically remove that T.V. remote that has now become a part of your hand and do something else this summer other than watch the boob-tube. There are lots more fun and exciting things you could be doing on a hot, sticky summer….

10. Pick up a good book.
Every summer there are tons of new releases from some of the latest and greatest authors out there. Either scan the website’s of major book sellers like Barnes and Noble or actually go there in person to see what your favorite author is brewing up, or give a new genre a shot like poetry or science fiction…

9. Go to an amusement park.
Almost everyone is close to an amusement park of some sort, and it doesn’t even have to be a Disney World. You can find out the best-kept secrets in your city by using local website guides…african celebs

8. Check out an art museum or exhibit.
Learn to hang out with the hip and happnin’ crowd by attending the opening of an exhibit at a local art museum or gallery. Openings can be a blast as you sip champaign and nibble on hors d’oeuvre while you intently examine paintings that look like something your six-year-old niece created. For openings and exhibit listings, see the arts and entertainment section of your daily newspaper or use the same local Internet guides mentioned above.

7. Have sex.
Hey, why not? Grab that significant other and in no time you won?t be too concerned with what rerun you’re missing.

6. Go shopping.
What’s better than escaping the heat of a summer afternoon with frivolously spending tons of cash at the local shopping mall? Well, nothing actually.

5. Start a new hobby.
Whether it be beaded jewelry making, crocheting, deep sea diving or playing the acoustic guitar (hi Shaun!), starting a new favorite past time can be loads of fun and will definitely keep you busy throughout the wee hours of the morning…

4. Check out the latest music.
Summers are usually defined by the music released during its lazy days. Make sure to check out some of the latest albums from bands like the Stone Temple Pilots, P-Square, Sarkodie, Janet Jackson, Rihanna, Beyonce…..just to name a few. Check  Billboard?s website to stay abreast of the latest releases and make sure to check back here at Funky Bitch to read what our inquiring minds have to say about them all…

3. Go to the movies or watch online
Movies can set the tone for this summer’s, especially  action movies, the rest of the season is just as anticipated with movies such as drama, romantic or comedy…any of these can make for a fun night without the hassle of standing in line at the Movie Theatres.

2. Go to a music concert.
Lots of great bands are on tour this summer, including One Direction, Rihanna,  ReggieNBollie, Janet Jackson, Madonna… just to name a few. There’s nothing quite like kicking back to hear live music from your favorite band under the stars at an open-air venue. Now that?s my idea of summer.

1. Get a job.
Honestly, nobody’s about to give you a paycheck for sitting on your ass all day. Get up, hit the pavement and get yourself a job that will give you money to do anything off the rest of this list and will also pay for that giant television bill you’ve wracked up before I came to save you…..

Finally! We can all breathe and stop counting down! Drake and Rihanna kissed on stage. Is their relationship official or they’re just teasing us?

During his stage performance Drake said QUOTE ‘Miami, you gotta make some noise for Rihanna one more time!

Of course the fans went ballistic or should we say gaga when they kissed on the lips. All we can say is Finally! Wait, hope they not just teasing us.

Rihanna and Drake Kissed on Stage

You will all remember that just few days ago Drake confessed to millions of people on live TV that  QUOTE ”

”The first time I met Robyn Fenty was 2005, 11 years later, we still all know Rihanna as the one and only Rihanna. Rihanna is “most beautiful, talented woman he has ever seen …And when it comes to fashion and style, she makes it seem so effortless until you try to do it yourself….She’s someone I’ve been in love with since I was 22 years old”

Do you think this is their way of confirming that they are a couple?

Congrats to Rihanna for winning the 2016 Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at the  MTV VMAs. And who best to present Rihanna with this prestigious award other than Drake.

Stars like Michael Jackson, Beyonce, Britney Spears….have all been honoured previously with this prestigious award.

It was what Drake said in his introduction that is melting our hearts he said  QUOTE ”The first time I met Robyn Fenty was 2005, 11 years later, we still all know Rihanna as the one and only Rihanna. Rihanna is “most beautiful, talented woman he has ever seen …And when it comes to fashion and style, she makes it seem so effortless until you try to do it yourself….She’s someone I’ve been in love with since I was 22 years old”

She’s one of my best friends in the world. Aaaaaaaaaaaw how lovely! For moment we all though he was going to propose. Did you watch the MTV VMAs?

Did you also think he was about to ‘put the ring on it’ ?

Drake and rihanna

The main shocker was the hug/kiss. They’re so cute. We love them so much together. For a man to profess his love on live TV to millions of people goes to show how much he genuinely love Rihanna.

Drake continued to add “She’s a living, breathing legend in our industry. Ladies and gentleman, the recipient of the 2016 Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, Rihanna!”

Rihanna celebrated her success with ‘her family’s, fans, women, black women and the Caribbean as a whole’ she started by expressing how amazed she was…

”This is such an amazing night. It’s such an amazing moment in my career…When I think about the Vanguard Award and receiving this tonight, all I could think of was my country. They’re going to be so proud This is the first Vanguard to land anywhere close to my country. My success, it started as my dream. But now my success is not my own. It’s my family’s. It’s my fans’. It’s my country’s. It’s the Caribbean as a whole. It’s women, it’s black women. So many people feel like their little piece is such a major part of this puzzle. And I have to thank you guys for supporting me over and over!” ~ Rihanna
