About Rihanna

How cool is Rihanna? Even Anne Hathaway, Rihanna’s costar in the upcoming film Ocean’s 8, gushes that “She’s heaven.” This year, she brought some of her divine style down to Earth when she launched her Fenty Beauty cosmetic line. 132M+ people watched the line’s tutorial videos just in the month of September, according to Newsweek. It helps that Rihanna can promote it to her 80M+ Twitter and 58M+ Instagram followers. She even shut down body-shaming social media trolls in the coolest way possible—by ‘gramming a hilarious before-and-after weight-loss meme of rapper Gucci Mane, racking up over 850K likes on the post. Hathaway summed up by saying that Rihanna’s “life is one continuous mic drop.” Good thing @badgalriri always gets the mic.
