Who is Rihanna?
Born to Ronald Fenty and Gooden Fenty, Rihanna is the eldest of four siblings. She was raised by her mother until her teen years and subsequently moved in with her grandmother in Barbados.
While her parents were too busy with their careers to raise her properly, Rihanna had an upbringing rich in music, learning how to play the piano and the guitar. She attended the Avon Dance Centre to keep up with her dance training and obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Arts and Music from Barbados’ Cranbrook Academy of Arts.
She was offered a scholarship for a music degree at the New England Conservatory of Music, but did not pursue it, opting instead for the School of Visual Arts, where she earned her degree in fine arts.
She also penned her hit single, “Umbrella”, with Jacob Lacks and Dallas Austin. It became the best-selling single of the 21st century, as well as the third best-selling single in the United Kingdom, spending four weeks atop of the charts in both countries.
Her third studio album, Good Girl Gone Bad (2007), is one of the best-selling albums of the 2000s and has sold more than 12 million copies worldwide. It has earned her six Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year.
Her song, “Umbrella”, was awarded Record of the Year, and won Best Rap/Sung Collaboration, at the 2007 MTV Video Music Awards. The single was also named Best Single at the 2007 American Music Awards.
Despite being among the world’s most successful artists, Rihanna has spent much of her career facing bad press.
