Rihanna is an award-winning singer and has been a fashion icon for a few years now. She’s pretty outspoken, even when it comes to personal things, and has been known to get into an online feud or two with a celebrity.
There’s also that extremely unfortunate incident that occurred between her and Chris Brown a few years ago. Rihanna sat down for an interview with Oprah Winfrey to talk about it, and even tried to rekindle her romance with Brown. Since then, Rihanna has allegedly dated rapper Drake (which may have been her way of making Chris Brown jealous) and Leonardo DiCaprio.
12. She’s Afraid of Ghosts
Rihanna witnessed an exorcism at a friend’s house in Barbados when she was a little girl. She states that “it’s funny now,” but at the time she was extremely frightened. Apparently, part of this experience has stayed with her, because she won’t visit Chateau Marmont due to her fear of ghosts. Rihanna insists that you can feel that the place is haunted and says that the hotel is “borrowed space.” She’s not the only famous person who feels that way, since a number of celebrities have confirmed supernatural sightings, and comedian John Belushi died of an overdose at Chateau Marmont. Hey, we’ve all got things that creep us out, and Rihanna is no different.
6. She Goes Into The Audience Before Her Shows
Sometimes, Rihanna disguises herself as an audience member and goes into the crowd before the show starts. She often wears a hoodie so fans will have a hard time recognizing her. Rihanna says if anyone notices her, she’s “too close for them to freak out,” so fans will likely just smile and wave frantically. Rihanna likely does this to get a feel for the audience’s energy before going on stage. Of course, she’s always got security with her in case one of her fans tries to get crazy. Even when she’s trying to be “one of the people,” Rihanna still has to keep in mind that she’s an international superstar.
5. She Takes A Shot Before Going Onstage
Rihanna likes to take a shot of some type of liquor before each performance. She does this to calm her nerves and loosen up so she can give her fans the entertaining show they came for. The shot of liquor is just the final part of her vocal preparation regimen, though. Before this, she steams her vocal chords and sucks on lozenges so her voice is in its best condition before performing. Of course, Rihanna has also been known to take a few swigs of “liquid courage” while on the stage as well. We’re guessing this is for the shows that she’s especially nervous about.
4. She’s (Kind Of) A Pageant Queen
When Rihanna attended Combermere High School in Barbados, she won the school’s beauty pageant, and the title of Miss Combermere. This is probably a secret Rihanna wouldn’t mind keeping under wraps, since she’s all about female empowerment and encourages women to take control of their careers and S3xuality. Rihanna was also expected to perform when she won her title, and she chose to wow the crowd by singing Hero, by Mariah Carey. It was a pretty popular tune among beauty queens in years past, so that’s probably the real reason Rihanna doesn’t exactly broadcast this part of her life in interviews
3. She Str!ps After Shows
Rihanna is pretty much the poster child for being comfortable with your body, but she admits that she wasn’t always this way. During her Oprah interview, Rihanna stated that she had to “act S3xy” in order to convince herself that being seductive was nothing to be ashamed of. After her performances, Rihanna likes to go to her dressing room and Str!p down to her fishnet stockings for about 30 minutes or so, according to Esquire magazine. Apparently, being Nak3d is a form of relaxation for her, but it’s probably not something she wants the paparazzi to get any pictures of.
2. She Felt “Boxed In”
At the Start of Her Career Artists generally avoid talking about their music labels or managers in a way that could be perceived as negative. That’s probably why Rihanna chose her words carefully when she stated that she felt “claustrophobic” at the beginning of her career. She stated that the executives at Def Jam didn’t wanted her to wear clothes that were too revealing. She wasn’t even allowed to wear red lipstick (which has now become one of her trademarks) because the record label wanted her to be more appealing to a younger demographic. Obviously, a lot of that has changed, since many of the people listening to Rihanna’s music and getting fashion cues from her are adults.
