Rihanna’s Biography (Age)
Rihanna was born on February 20, 1988, in Saint Micheal, Barbados and raised in Bridgetown by her parents, Monica (née Braithwaite), a retired accountant of Afro-Guyanese background and Ronald Fenty, a warehouse supervisor of Afro-Barbadian and Irish descent.
For one who had a rough childhood, Rihanna’s success story is deeply inspirational. She has two brothers, Rajad and Rorrey as well as a half-brother and two half-sisters from her father’s previous relationships.
After a strained marriage, her parents got divorced when she was at the age of fourteen. Before that, it was reported that her father’s addiction to alcohol and crack cocaine had affected her emotional and physical health which improved when they separated. Her love for reggae music piqued her passion for the art and although Rihanna attended Charles F. Broome Memorial Primary School, she didn’t complete sec school at Combermere High School.
Meanwhile, she formed a musical trio with two of her classmates in 2003 which led to her discovery and land the girl group an audition with producer and songwriter Evan Rogers. Rihanna made a strong impression on Rogers who said: “the minute Rihanna walked into the room, it was like the other two girls didn’t exist.”
The American producer invited Rihanna to the US and got her signed to Def Jam Recordings with rapper Jay Z as the record’s president and CEO. Her debut single, Pon de Replay released in May 2005, became a global success, reaching the top five in fifteen countries, including as number two on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart and the UK Singles Chart.
Rihanna’s debut album, Music of the Sun that was released the same year sold over two million copies worldwide and received a gold certification from the Recording Industry Association of America(RIAA). She has successfully established herself as an artist and a businesswoman, thus the sky doesn’t seem to be her limit.
While success is her second name, Rihanna, like the rest of us, is human and actually eat. She is described as a moody eater who doesn’t like to be tied down to a menu every week. In some of the photos she usually shares on social media, the We Ride crony can be seen serving it in small portions – egg, fruits, bacon and pancakes.
In her interview with Fabulous Magazine, the singer said she hates vegetables but makes herself to eat them. Her day’s diet plan include:
Lunch: fish and potatoes with vegetables
Dinner: “fish again.”
Most of Rihanna’s favorite dish stems from her Caribbean heritage and they include curry chicken and just about any protein you can think of, according to her Jamaican chef. For one thing, the pop star, just like the rest of us, is not willing to give up food. She believes it’s okay for young people to eat what they want.

Rihanna told Vanity Fair in 2015, that she could visit the gym every day in a week and sacrifice an hour for an exercise. As much as she’s endowed with the killer body of a goddess, Rihanna is not a workout freak. Her trainers take special care to assign her exercises that include:
A mix of martial art,
Ab-specific work like plank holds, full range sit-ups, plank holds and sit-ups with torso rotations.
Dumbbell moves like squats, lunges, and shoulder presses.
Bad Gal Riri, as her Instagram statues go, has made headlines when she gained lots of pounds. An insider disclosed that since Rihanna turned 30 years old, she’s seriously focused on getting into the best shape.

Rihanna is definitely not willing to lose all her gorgeous curves though…Maybe some, but not all, especially the butt.
