Rihanna hits milestone
R&B singer Rihanna has had hit after hit since first appearing on the scene in 2005 and it seems all of her hard work has paid off. BET reports Ri recently reached full diva status, as she is now tied with the legendary Whitney Houston for having 23 top 10 hits.
The list of women who have achieved this goal is short - just three others have garnered such success and Ri was able to do so in a mere seven years. ABC News Radio reports Houston's career spanned over three decades, so Ri's ability to top the chart in under a decade is something to admire.
Music isn't the only job Rihanna has had recently. The singer also has multiple perfumes under her belt and is set to create her own women's clothing line in the near future. Her success is so widespread that she tied with Ellen DeGeneres on the Forbes list of Highest Paid Women in Entertainment for earning a cool $53 million from 2011 to 2012. Aside from earning so much money, the star is also popular on social networking sites - she has 26 million Twitter followers and 60 million Facebook fans, the publication reports.
