Happy Birthday, RiRi! A Recap Of Rihanna's Rise To Fame


Robyn Rihanna Fenty was born in Saint Michael, Barbados and moved to the U.S. at 16.
The pop culture icon turns 25 on Feb. 20.

Seven's a lucky number for many, but for Rihanna—who's released seven albums in seven years and earned seven Grammy Awards—"lucky" only scratches the surface.

Along the way, the talented singer sported almost every look imaginable—some better than others. With one hit single after the next, fans have witnessed this star evolve as both a music and fashion sensation. And then, of course, there's her made-for-tabloids romance with Chris Brown.
