Check out Rihanna’s new video:
In the beginning (according to Wikipedia)….
Robyn Rihanna Fenty was born on February 20, 1988, in Saint Michael, Barbados. Her mother, Monica Braithwaite, is a retired accountant of Afro-Guyanese background, and her father, Ronald Fenty, is a warehouse supervisor of Barbadian and Irish descent. Rihanna has two brothers, Rorrey and Rajad Fenty, and two half-sisters and a half-brother from her father’s side, each born to different mothers from his previous relationships. She grew up in a three-bedroom bungalow in Bridgetown and sold clothes with her father in a stall on the street.
THE REAL DEAL (according to our sources):
Rihanna was born with a passion for entertaining. Whenever given the opportunity she would perform for her family and she loved listening to current female vocalists including Beyonce.
Rihanna’s childhood was deeply affected by her father’s addiction to crack cocaine and alcohol. Her parents split when she was 14. The shy Rihanna then turned to music as an outlet.

At 15, she formed a girl group with a couple of classmates and began making music with a local music producer. She eventually traveled to the states to record in Connecticut.
Her producer gave the music they were working on to Jay Z. Rihanna had a meeting where she nervously performed a Whitney Houston song for him.
