Rihanna possesses a mezzo-soprano vocal range, that spans nearly three octaves. But as if this wasn’t already enough, this cookie-cutter teen queen can obviously pose with great ease. Good girl gone bad? Yep, and vice versa.
Some media claimed that Jay-Z fashioned her to be a replica of Beyoncé. But that was back in 2009. And Jay-Z was everywhere. Even if he truly wasn’t. Tracey Lomrantz of Glamour commented that same year, “If style risks could be measured in miles, Rihanna would have criss-crossed the globe a thousand times over already”. Truth is she was also declared as “Woman of the Year” by Glamour. And in October 2011, Esquire declared the Barbadian as “the Sexiest Woman Alive” for 2011. A coincidence that she has four wax figures of herself at Madame Tussauds Wax Museums in Washington D.C., Vienna, Berlin and London? Nope, ain’t a coincidence, when it’s a given.
