Rihanna, The Woman, The Singer And The Force Of Nature.
I don’t think that the name Rihanna needs any introduction, unless you have been living under a rock the past decade. But if you don’t know, then I will have you know that Rihana is the voice behind smashing hit songs like ‘Diamonds’, ‘S&M’, ‘Rude Boy’… just to mention a few. She has a voice that could wake up the dead—I mean that figuratively. But aside her voice that we hear and love, who is Robyn, AKA Rihana, behind the camera? What can we tell about her real personality from her on-screen persona?
On-screen, Rihana is a bad girl and a sex symbol. She has ingrained this persona into her real personality. But this Is actually a myth that she wants the world to believe, ofbecause of course, sex sells.
Rihana is principled and has high morals.
Unlike what her on-screen persona entails, Rihana has high morals. She revealed this side of her when she clearly stated her take on one night stands. She said “I get horny, I am human, I am a woman, I want to have sex but what are my going to do- just find the first random cute dude that I think is going to be a great ride for the night and then tomorrow I wake up feeling empty and hollow?” wow! This is a side to Rihanna that is oblivious to most of us considering the type of music she makes, from ‘Rude Boy’ ‘S&M’—highly sexual.
Rihanna also said other things that further embellish this revelation. She said “men are afraid to be men. They think that being a real man is pussy. That if you take a chair out for a lady, or you are nice or even affectionate to your girl in front of your boys, you are less of a man. They won’t be a gentle man because that makes them appear soft… girls are settling for that but I won’t … hmmm. I say AMEN to that sista.
Rihana is peaceful.
Riri is incredibly peaceful. She brought this side to her to light when she refused to talk bad about her ex Chris Brown when he assaulted her. I know that she was in love with him but there are some traits that love cannot conceal. An example of that trait is anger management issues.
One thing that can make some women loose it is when a man leaves them for another woman who is clearly beneath them: Chris Brown cheated on Rihanna with Karrueche after she forgave him for physically assaulting her. Drake was rumored to be having an affair with IG model India Love while still dating Riri.
A lot of women under that circumstance would have taken to their powerful social media handles to cuss out their ex and the other woman but Riri sucked it in and took the high road. This goes on to reveal that Riri is a model of peace.
Rihanna has immense grace.
Ever noticed that everything Rihana touches turns gold? When she features in a song, rest assured it tops charts. No wonder Steve Rogers has this to say about her “the moment she walked into the room it was as if the other three didn’t exist”
Rihanna radiates an aura of greatness which is why no other female singer ever rose to super stardom in such a short period of time as Rihanna did.
Rihanna is humble.
A lot of superstars don’t even read social media DMS let alone reply them .But not Riri.
Rihanna replied a DM from a fan who reached out to her for advice on how to get over heartbreak. Rihanna did not just reply this fan but she also dished out thoughtful advice that should totally get this fan back on his feet.
She wrote “just believe that the heartbreak was a gift in itself! Cry if you have to but it won’t’ be forever. You will find love again and it will be even more beautiful. In the meantime enjoy all that you are!!!” that is humility right there.
Rihana is very intelligent.
Rihanna is constantly reinventing herself. She brought with herself into the spotlight a bad girl persona. But now she is digging deeper and bringing to the surface the woman in her.
Rihanna knows how to bare her world to everyone but whether what she puts out is pretty or not, she still inspires a lot of respect and admiration through the great confidence she exudes. If all that is not intelligence, I don’t know what is.
