“Rihanna may be the perfect embodiment of the modern pop star. The 26-year-old Barbados native churns out radio hits like “We Found Love” and “Diamonds” and collaborates with some of the biggest names in the business like Jay-Z and Eminem. But she also uses social media better than almost anyone. Her Twitter and Instagram feeds allow her to connect with her fans in a way that feels honest and unfiltered and they love her for it. Rihanna is the second most-powerful social media user on our list after Justin Bieber. “
Lorde has spoken about her love for Rihanna, describing the singer as “fearless”. The ‘Royals’ singer told the London Evening Standard’s ES magazine that she admires the Bajan star’s embodiment of female sexuality. She explained: “She’s just magnetic. You can’t not look at Rihanna. I would buy anything Rihanna sold me.”

Rihanna has kinda confirmed what we all suspected. Earlier today she tweeted a picture from a studio describing it as #R8. This is the hashtag fans use to describe Rihanna’s yet untitled 8th studio album. We’ve already seen images of Rihanna outside recording studios, joined by other musicians (including by Kanye West and Coldplay’s Chris Martin). So far we’ve only heard a confirmation from DreamWorks Animation that she is working on a concept album for their animated movie “Home”, which will be out early next year! Can’t wait!
