In honor of international pop star, Rihanna’s 29th birthday (Happy Birthday Rih!). Take a look at some of her best moments.
With the release of her first album, “Umbrella” known for such No 1 hits, in 2015, twelve years ago, Rihanna burst into our lives and her song still fills the dance floor today. She was brought into lime light with this track, sealing her place in our hearts till date.

In a move that only Rihanna can pull off, she was caught behind cameras wearing a bedazzled hip flask for the 2017 Grammy Awards. How Iconic can this bad girl be!?
“This Pussy Grabs Back”
The multiple industry accolades winner-Grammy and MTV awards- joined the women’s march in New York, taking to the street in front of Trump Tower. Rihanna wore a shirt inscribed with a slogan “This pussy grabs back” in front. The global pop star with an unrelentingly edgy image later took to Instagram to share a photo of herself surrounded by placards with the caption “So proud to be a woman!! So proud of the women around the world who came together today for pro-choice”.
Known for her sexually provocative imagery and wild style, Rihanna made headlines in June 2014 for wearing an Adam Selman gown made out of 230,000 Swarovski crystals to the council of Fashion Designers of America awards ceremony. She was there to receive the CFDA’s Fashion Icon Award and told the crowd that “Fashion has always been my defense mechanism.” Rihanna acknowledged that there were some rules to fashion, but explained that rules are meant to be broken.
There haven’t been any love stories that have gained the world’s attention such as that of our favorite former couple, Drake and Rihanna. Their will-they-wont-they storyline escalated with the release of ‘Work’, which saw men and women alike lose their minds over the sexual tension between the two (It’s in fact, impossible not to fancy Rihanna after watching the music video). The one-time lovers, also favorite couples at some point, after a failing relationship, parted ways with matching tattoos. Prior to this event, Drake proclaimed his love to Rihanna at the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs).
Rihanna is smokin’ hot in more ways than one. Being a lover of ‘funky’ cigarettes, she’s has perfected looking damn good mid blaze and not giving a damn about what people think. An example of such a moment was when she was seen rolling a joint whilst on her bodyguard’s shoulder at Coachella. When MTV tweeted “yikes, Rihanna’s marijuana photos spark controversy,” feisty Riri fired back, “yikes…… Rihanna ran out of f*** to give,” incredible.
Rihanna X Manolo
Rihanna had a fashion collaboration last year with Manolo Blahnik to create some bad ass shoes. It was one of the best ever. Killer heels and thigh high boots were created out of that and it was the perfect accessory to wear whilst strutting around to “Bitch Better Have My Money”.
Happy Birthday Week Riri!
