Rihanna is one of the world’s best-loved, sassy, talented and gorgeous superstars. She’s fierce, she’s fashionable and she is a multi-platinum recording artist. Here are a few things you might not know about bad gal Riri.
She never graduated high school.
Even though she’s a quick-witted songstress, surprisingly, Riri never finished high school. Rihanna got her big break at 15, signing with a major record label. She nabbed the opportunity, ditched high school and flew from her hometown, Barbados, to LA to pursue her dreams of stardom.
She’s an army cadet.
While living in Barbados, Rihanna was in the army cadets in the sub-military program in her teenage years. The self-confessed tomboy ended up reaching the rank of corporal. We’re impressed!
Riri loves her charity work.
You might think that her schedule is full with her attending award shows and touring the world, but the singer still has the time to give back. In 2012, she founded the Clara Lionel Foundation (CLF), which is named after her beloved grandparents. She founded the organization to aid impoverished communities across the globe, with healthcare and scholarship opportunities.
She’s turned down Playboy.
The songstress might be known for her exotic beauty, but she still believes in leaving something to the imagination. She has turned down multiple offers to appear in Playboy magazine, much to the disappointment of her male fans.
Her legs are insured for $1 million.
Yes, that’s right, Riri’s legs are so gorgeous they have been actually been insured. In 2007, Gillette named her “Celebrity Legs of Goddess” and Gillette had her legs insured for 1 million dollars.
