Rihanna is such an inspiration and role model to me because knowing the numerous hardships she has gone through, and how she always comes out on top is absolutely inspiring to me. Also, a majority of her songs have depth and meaning to them that everyone can relate to. Personality wise she is very bold and isn't afraid to speak her mind which is like my personality. She is one amazing performer and when she came to the Key Arena, it was a sold out show and one of the best concerts I have gone to. Rihanna carries her head high and spends hours and hours in the recording studio perfecting her songs and the hard work has definitely paid off.

“We Found Love” made history as Rihanna’s 11th #1 hit on the Hot 100, and her 20th Top 10 hit. At age 23, Rihanna became the youngest artist in Billboard chart history to earn 11 Hot 100 #1 hits. 
• As reported by, she collected her 20 Hot 100 Top 10 singles faster than any other solo artist, six years and four months.
