1. Her name has probably been pronounced incorrectly.

Many videos of the singer show that Rihanna pronounces her name “ree-ANN-uh” rather than “ree-AH-nuh.”

Robyn Rihanna Fenty is also her full name.

2. She had a brief appearance in “Bring It On: All or Nothing.”

In the cheerleading movie from the 2000s, Rihanna portrayed herself.

She participated in the final round as a judge, announcing the victorious cheer squad that will be included in her song video.

3. Rihanna took first place in a high school beauty contest.

Rihanna won her high school beauty contest in 2004, the year before the release of her first big song, “Pon de Replay.” She sang Mariah Carey’s “Hero” during the talent round, which helped her win Miss Combermere.

In 2007, she told The Daily Mail that she entered the competition on a dare.

4. She trained in the military in Barbados.

Before she became a household name, singer Rihanna participated in a sub-military program as an army cadet in Barbados.

She admitted to the Daily Mail in the same interview that her military experience had really prepared her for the beauty contest.

She stated, “Learning to hold books on my head on the catwalk came in handy with my military training.”

Shontelle, a singer-songwriter who served as her drill sergeant, told BBC News in 2009 that she had to command Rihanna.

“Drill sergeants carry out such duties.” “When cadets arrive late to the parade plaza, we bully them and make them do push-ups,” she said.

5. At the age of 16, Rihanna secured her first record contract, and Jay-Z was a factor in the offer.

After submitting a demo in 2004, Rihanna was flown to New York to meet with Jay-Z, the head of the Def Jam record company, after a 2003 audition with record producer Evan Rogers.

He was so eager to sign Rihanna that the label’s meeting with her allegedly continued until three in the morning as the attorneys worked out all the kinks.

Rihanna entered into a deal with the label at the age of 16.

6. Rihanna wasn’t the intended performer of “Umbrella” at first.

The popular song by Rihanna nearly wasn’t

Vice claims that Britney Spears was the intended recipient of the song at first, but she turned it down. Then, Def Jam Records and Mary J. Blige received the offer.

Blige was unable to seal the transaction, which allowed the record company to buy the song for Rihanna.

7. Try not to bring an umbrella to her performances.

Due to increased security issues, Rihanna had to exclude umbrellas from her concerts when “Umbrella” became a smash in 2008.

8. One of her most popular songs spent ten weeks at the top of the charts.

With the help of DJ Calvin Harris, Rihanna’s single “We Found Love” became a huge hit in 2011. The song spent almost a year in the Top 100 charts and topped the charts for ten consecutive weeks.

According to the New Musical Express magazine, Harris subsequently claimed to have entirely transformed his profession in a 2012 interview with The Sun.

9. She is the owner of many Guinness World Records.

The “most consecutive years of UK No. 1 singles,” “female artist with most US No. 1 singles in a year,” and “most digital No. 1 songs in the US” are just a few of the Guinness World Records that Rihanna broke.

0. Before performances, Rihanna sometimes slips into the crowd.

A diluted shot and sometimes slipping into the crowd to witness the first act are part of Rihanna’s preshow routines.

She admitted to taking the shot to help her relax before every performance at Esquire in 2011.

She said, “My personal assistant, who doubles as a bartender, offers me a shot that she dilutes with a little something so it’s not too harsh, like orange juice or soda water and lime.”

She enjoys her beverage while watching the opening performance from her dressing room or, if she is dressed appropriately, from the crowd.

“I sometimes enter the crowd. I sneak outside wearing an enormous hoodie. “She spoke to Esquire.”
