23 SEP 2016 DEEPIKA PADUKONE 10th HIGHEST PAID ACTRESS

Deepika On Forbes’ List Of World’s Highest Paid Actresses

New York: Leading Indian actress Deepika Padukone has made her debut among the world’s top 10 highest paid actresses with earnings of USD 10 million dollars in a list alongside Hollywood heavyweights Oscar-winner Jennifer Lawrence, Julia Roberts and Friends star Jennifer Anniston.

Padukone, 30, is the only Indian actress and the sole newcomer in Forbes’ 2016 list of the ‘World’s Highest-Paid Actresses’, coming in on the 10th spot.

Forbes said Padukone has scored box office gold in Bollywood movies such as Bajirao Mastani and Piku. While she earns less than her Hollywood counterparts for roles, Padukone compensates with over a dozen lucrative endorsements, which have helped her hedge against a deep pay gap in Bollywood.

The list shows her with earnings of USD 10 million. Forbes said the Bangalore-bred Padukone, who made her Bollywood film debut in 2007 with Shahrukh Khan-starrer Om Shanti Om, has since starred in several films that have crossed the USD 150 million or 100 crore mark a barometer for box office success in India.

Padukone has also become something of a style icon launching her own label for an Indian online shopping site. Making her Hollywood debut along Fast and Furious star Vin Diesel, she will be seen in 2017 in xXx: Return of Xander Cage.

Noting the gender pay gap in the Indian movie industry, a discrepancy not uncommon in Hollywood also, Forbes said though a top Indian male star might earn close to USD 5 million a movie, prominent Indian actresses rarely clear USD 1 million a film.

For the second year in a row, Oscar-winning Hunger Games actress Lawrence topped the list of the world’s highest-paid actresses, notching USD 46 million. Ghostbusters starrer Melissa McCarthy is ranked second with earnings of USD 33 million. The list includes The Horse Whisperer-starrer Scarlett Johansson on the third spot, Anniston on the 4th place followed by Chinese actress Fan Bingbing (5), Oscar-nominee Amy Adams (7) and Pretty Woman-starrer Roberts (8).

Forbes added that in an industry where a pay gap with male actors still exists, 90 per cent of the world’s highest- paid actresses supplement their on-screen earnings with endorsements.

Together, the world’s 10 highest-paid actresses tallied combined USD 205 million between June 2015 and 2016, before fees and taxes. Though these select actresses earn more than most could dream of, their movie money is but a fraction of what many of their male counterparts pocket.

While top actresses can negotiate eight figure upfront fees plus a cut of profits for leading parts in big budget movies, there are simply fewer of those roles available for women, Forbes said.

It also noted that for women, the movie business is notoriously ageist but with box office clout, some of the highest-paid actresses have maneuvered themselves into positions of economic power.

You may not know them—yet—but these Asian actresses are among the best paid

If the names Fan Bingbing and Deepika Padukone don’t ring a bell, they should, because the Asian stars featured in the latest ranking of the world’s best-paid actresses.

Chinese starlet Fan took fifth place on the Forbes’ The World’s Highest-Paid Actresses 2016 list, based on her earnings from June 2015 to June 2016, down from fourth spot last year. Her $17 million 2016 paycheck came from roles in local Chinese films such as”Skiptrace” and “Lady of the Dynasty.”

“Last year was the first time we actually looked outside of just the U.S., so last year Fan Bingbing was the only foreign actress to make the list. This year she’s joined by Charlize Theron and Deepika Padukone,” said Natalie Robehmed, a staff writer at Forbes, told CNBC’s “Squawk Box.”

Born in Qingdao, China, Fan rose to fame in Asia at just 17, when she played a supporting role in the popular Mandarin-language television series “My Fair Princess.”

After starring in several Chinese movies and topping Forbes’ China celebrity rankings, Fan broke into the global mainstream media in 2014 when she starred in “X-Men: Days of Future Past” as the mutant Blink.

She has also caught the attention of red-carpet watchers with her regal and elaborate haute couture gowns at several Cannes Film Festivals and Met Galas. The 35-year-old has also been the celebrity brand ambassador for Louis Vuitton, Chopard, Loreal and Cartier.

Fan was reportedly the first Asian celebrity to wear a custom-madeLouis Vuitton gown, back in 2013, according to several reports.

Adding to her list of accomplishments, she is also a singer, television producer and philanthropist.

Newcomer Deepika Padukone joined the ranks in tenth spot, after earning $10 million in the year to June. While Padukone might be a stranger to U.S. audiences, that will likely change.

“She will be making her Hollywood debut next year so U.S. audiences may get familiar with her soon,” Robehmed said, referring to the upcoming film “xXx: Return of Xander Cage.”

The Bollywood actress and model received her big break starring in the 2007 blockbuster “Om Shanti Om” and romantic comedy “Piku,” for which she won several awards.

While Padukone earned less than her Hollywood contemporaries for her acting roles, she earned her millions by cutting lucrative brand endorsement deals with local brands such as Indian domestic airline Vistara and jewelry brand Tanishq, Forbes reported.

Another key takeaway from the Forbes’ list was the glaring gender pay gap between the actors and actresses.

“This year, the world’s highest-paid actor Dwayne Johnson earned $64 million, $18 million more than Jennifer Lawrence [who was the highest-paid actress],” Robehmed told CNBC.

“There’s still a very significant pay gap, even for women who are at the very top of their fields,” she added.

LOS ANGELES — Priyanka Chopra has become the first Indian star to enter the Forbes list of highest paid television actresses in the world, after starring on American series Quantico.

Priyanka ranks eighth in the coveted list, which has retained American actress Sofia Vergara at the first position fifth year in a row.

The 44-year-old Colombian-American actress brought home a whooping USD 43 million before management fees and taxes, but not all came from her hit TV show Modern Family.

Vergara has an impressive array of endorsement deals as well as her line of products.

Priyanka, meanwhile, has earned USD 11 million. She made her international acting debut last year with ABC’s Quantico and now is gearing up for its second season.

Back home, the 34-year-old actress has starred in two Bollywood films in the past one year — Bajirao Mastani (2015) and Jai Gangaajal — and will make her Hollywood film debut with Baywatch alongside Hollywood heavy-hitters including Dwayne Johnson, the world’s highest-paid actor.

Sad to read these news, places like Odisha, Chattisgarh, Jharkhan are still struggling for basic needs. Above all shame on the people who do not come out to help . Blaming the government is not fair all the time and many things could have been done to make things better, I don’t know from where to begin but our administration for poor people has failed in many ways and nothing can be worse than reading such news. Instead of investing on rallies for politicians, investing in IPL and constructing tall buildings all over we should look for basic needs for poor people in backward states. We should use the money in right direction. Because food is always more important than entertainment.

A little insensitive to refer to the child as “it,” isn’t it? The child may be no more, but he or she was a person, and deserves to be spoken of as such. “It” is a pronoun used for inanimate objects. Things. Not people.
But like most television actresses (and actresses, in general), her millions are not made from screen time alone.

Priyanka is one of India’s top picks for advertisers, reported Forbes magazine.

The Big Bang Theory actress Kaley Cuoco is at the second position, with an earning of USD 24.5 million.
Mindy Kaling came up third with USD 15 million, followed by a tie for fourth place between Ellen Pompeo and Mariska Hargitay, who both made USD 14.5 million.

Castle star Stana Katic, who like Chopra makes a debut on the list, is placed at seventh position. Another newcomer on the rankings is Julia Louis-Dreyfus of The Good Wife.

Kerry Washington of Scandal fame finds herself at sixth position, with USD 13.5 million earnings. The list comprises 15 highest paid actresses.

Before Priyanka, Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone also made the country proud by entering the 2016 Forbes list of world’s highest paid actresses.

The list, which saw Jennifer Lawrence sitting at the top, placed Deepika at the 10th position. Deepika, who shared screen space with Priyanka in Bajirao Mastani, is like the Quantico star, set for her Hollywood debut next year.

She will be seen alongside Vin Diesel in xXx: Return of Xander Cage.

Robyn Rihanna Fenty (/riˈænə/;[2] born February 20, 1988) is a Barbadian singer and songwriter. Born in Saint Michael and raised in Bridgetown, she first entered the music industry by recording demo tapes under the direction of record producer Evan Rogers in 2003. She ultimately signed a recording contract with Def Jam Recordings after auditioning for its then-president, hip hop producer and rapper Jay Z. Rihanna’s first two studio albums Music of the Sun (2005) and A Girl like Me (2006) charted on the top 10 of the U.S. Billboard 200 and respectively produced the singles “Pon de Replay” and “SOS“.

She assumed creative control of her third studio album Good Girl Gone Bad (2007) and became a household name following the release of its international successful lead single “Umbrella“. She followed it with fiveRecording Industry Association of America (RIAA) platinum-certified albums, including the Grammy Award winning Unapologetic (2012) and her second Billboard 200 number-one album Anti (2016). Many of her songs rank among the world’s best-selling singles of all time, including the singles “Umbrella”, “Take a Bow“, “Disturbia“, “Only Girl (In the World)“, “S&M“, “We Found Love“, “Diamonds“, and “Stay” in which she is the lead artist, and her collaborations “Live Your Life” (with T.I.), “Love the Way You Lie” and “The Monster” (both with Eminem).

With sales exceeding 200 million records worldwide, Rihanna is one of the best-selling artists of all time. Rihanna is the youngest and fastest solo artist to earn fourteen number-one singles on the Billboard Hot 100, and was named the Digital Songs Artist of the 2000s decade and the top Hot 100 artist of the 2010s decade by Billboard.[3][4][5] Among numerous awards and accolades, Rihanna has won eight Grammy Awards, eight American Music Awards, twelve Billboard Music Awards, two BRIT Awards, and the inaugural Icon Award at the American Music Awards of 2013. Widely recognized for frequently reinventing her style and image, she received the Fashion Icon lifetime achievement award from the Council of Fashion Designers of America in 2014. Forbes ranked Rihanna the fourth most powerful celebrity of 2012, and was named one of Times “100 Most Influential People in the World” later that year.

Early life

Rihanna grew up in the city ofBridgetown, Barbados.

Robyn Rihanna Fenty was born on February 20, 1988,[6] in Saint Michael, Barbados. Her mother, Monica (Braithwaite), is a retired accountant of Black Guyanese background, and her father, Ronald Fenty, is a warehouse supervisor of Black Barbadian and Irish descent.[7][8] Rihanna has two brothers, Rorrey and Rajad Fenty, and two half-sisters and a half-brother from her father’s side, each born to different mothers from his previous relationships.[9][10] She grew up in a three-bedroom bungalow in Bridgetown and sold clothes with her father in a stall on the street. Rihanna’s childhood was deeply affected by her father’s addiction to crack cocaine and alcoholwhich contributed to her parents’ rocky marriage. As a child, she went through a lot of CT scans for the excruciating headaches she suffered: “[The doctors] even thought it was a tumor, because it was that intense.”[9] By the time she was fourteen, Rihanna’s parents had divorced and her health began to improve.[8][11] Rihanna grew up listening to reggae music and began singing at around the age of seven.[9][12] She attended Charles F. Broome Memorial Primary School and Combermere High School, where she studied alongside future England cricketer Chris Jordan and future West Indies cricketer Kraigg Brathwaite.[9] Rihanna was an army cadet in a sub-military programme; the singer-songwriter Shontelle was her drill sergeant.[13] Although she initially wanted to graduate from high school, she chose to pursue a musical career instead.[14]

Career

2003–04: Career beginnings

In 2003, Rihanna formed a musical trio with two of her classmates.[9] She was discovered in her home country Barbados by American record producer Evan Rogers. Without a name or any material, the girl group managed to land an audition with Rogers who commented, “The minute Rihanna walked into the room, it was like the other two girls didn’t exist”.[9] Rihanna went to Rogers’ hotel room dressed in pink capris, pink shirt, and sneakers where she performed renditions of Destiny’s Child‘s “Emotion” and Mariah Carey‘s “Hero“.[15] Impressed, Rogers scheduled a second meeting with her mother present, who then invited her to his hometown in the United States to record some demo tapes which could be sent to record labels.[15] She recorded the demo over the next year intermittently, due to Rihanna only being able to record during school holidays. “Pon de Replay” and “The Last Time” were two tracks recorded for the demo tape, which were eventually included in her debut album Music of the Sun.

In 2004, Rihanna won her high school talent show and the Miss Combermere school beauty pageant,[16] where she was honored in the “Best Gown” and “Most Photogenic” categories.[17] That same year, Rihanna was signed to Rogers’ and Carl Sturken‘s production company, Syndicated Rhythm Productions, who assigned her a lawyer and manager, before the completed demo tape were distributed to various record labels around the world in late 2004.[15] The demo was shipped out to Def Jam Recordings, where Jay Brown, anA&R executive at the record label, was one of the first to hear the demo. Brown played the demo tape for rapper Jay-Z, who had recently been appointed as president and Chief executive officer (CEO) of Def Jam.[18] When Jay Z first heard the track “Pon de Replay“, he felt the song was too big for her, saying “when a song is that big, it’s hard [for a new artist] to come back from. I don’t sign songs, I sign artists”.[19] Despite being skeptical, he invited Rihanna to audition for the label. In February 2005, Rihanna auditioned for Def Jam inNew York, where Jay Z introduced her to music mogul Antonio “L.A.” Reid.[15][20] At the audition, she sang Whitney Houston‘s cover of “For the Love of You” (1987), as well as the demo tracks “Pon de Replay” and “The Last Time”.[15] Jay-Z was absolutely certain about signing her after she performed her future hit single “Pon de Replay”.[19] His boss L.A. Reid was also impressed with her audition who then looked at Jay Z and told him not to let Rihanna leave the building until the contract was signed.[21] Reid left it to Jay Z and his team to close the deal which resulted in a six-album record deal with Def Jam. She waited in Jay Z’s office till three in the morning to get lawyers to draft up a contract because he wanted to prevent her from signing with another label.[19]

Looking back on the audition and meeting Jay-Z, Rihanna explained that “when we first got there, I was shaking. I had never met a celebrity, and to have to audition for one and meet him at the same time … I was hysterical. But the minute I went in the office, it was totally different. He was so welcoming; the environment was so warm and friendly. The jitters just went away immediately.”[19] Rihanna cancelled other meetings with record labels and relocated from Barbados to the United States to live with Rogers and his wife.[22]During this time, Reid and Jay Z signed another young female artist named Teairra Mari and singer-songwriter Ne-Yo.[19] With most of the attention on the other artist, the record label held a company showcase to introduce their newly signed artist, where Rihanna, Mari, and Ne-Yo were each performing.[21] After the showcase, Beyoncé, who happened to be there with her husband Jay Z, was impressed and commented to L.A. Reid “That Rihanna girl, she’s a beast.”[21]

2005–06: Music of the Sun and A Girl like Me

“[My music is] just imagination, being creative; that’s what my music is composed with. Being creative and thinking of situations, whether situations I went through or situations I’ve observed people going through. I can’t tell you where I’ll see myself in five years, but I can tell you I will work my best to be the most successful artist that I can be in five years. [I want to be] Remembered as Rihanna. Remembered as being the artist from the Caribbean who came here and made it internationally. Just remembered as me, ’cause I’m true to my music, and I just want people to realize that and appreciate me for that”

—Rihanna during her first interview with MTV News.[23]

After signing with Def Jam, Jay Z and his team did the A&R for Rihanna’s debut album and spent the next three months recording and completing her debut album.[21] She worked with different producers to complete her debut studio album, primarily Rogers and his production partner Carl Sturken.[24] With several songs to pick as a lead single, “Pon de Replay” was chosen because it seemed liked the best song suited for a summer release.[25] In May 2005, her debut single, “Pon de Replay”, was released which charted successfully worldwide, peaking in the top five in fifteen countries, including at number two on the U.S. BillboardHot 100 chart and the UK Singles Chart.[26] The song became a big club hit in the United States, peaking at number-one on the Billboard Dance Club Songs and was described as “a poppy piece of dancehall reggae with slapping, syncopated beats recalling big-band jazz” by Rolling Stone.[27][28] That same month, she appeared on the track “The One” with rapper Memphis Bleek on his fourth studio album 534.

Music of the Sun, was released in August 2005. It debuted at number ten on the Billboard 200 and received a gold certification from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), denoting shipments of over 500,000 units.[29] The album sold over two million copies worldwide. It received mixed reviews; Rolling Stone gave it two and a half out of five stars and described as lacking replay value, ingenuity, and rhythm.[30]Sal Cinquemani of Slant Magazine described the album as a “glut of teen R&B chanteuses” and described her lead single as “a dancehall-pop mixture that owes plenty of its sweat and shimmy to Beyoncé‘s “Baby Boy“.[24] She promoted Music of The Sun upon its release, performing at the 2005 MTV Video Music Awards pre-show and participating in the KIIS-FM Jingle Ball.[31][32] A second single, “If It’s Lovin’ that You Want”, was not as successful as its predecessor, but reached the top ten in Australia, Ireland, and New Zealand.[33]

Aside from her work in music, Rihanna made her acting debut in a cameo role in the straight-to-DVD film Bring It On: All or Nothing, released in August 2006.[34] A month after the release of her debut album, Rihanna began working on her second studio album.[35] A Girl like Me was released in April 2006.[36] Rolling Stone felt that “the burning rock guitar of “Kisses Don’t Lie” and haunted strings of “Unfaithful” help make “A Girl like Me much more likable.”[37] The album was a commercial success, charting in the top ten in thirteen countries. The album reached number one in Canada and number five in the United Kingdom and United States, where it sold 115,000 copies its first week.[29][38] The album became her first to be certified platinum by the RIAA, after selling of over 1,000,000 units.[39] Its lead single, “SOS“, was an international success, charting in the top five in eleven countries, including Canada, Germany, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom. The song reached number one on the U.S. BillboardHot 100 and in Australia, her first to reach this chart position.[40]Unfaithful“, the album’s second single, reached the top ten in eighteen countries, including number one in Canada and Switzerland.[41] Two more singles were released from the album: “We Ride” and “Break It Off“.[42][43] The latter featuring Sean Paul, managed to reach the top 10 on the Hot 100. Following the release of the album, Rihanna embarked on her first headlining tour, the Rihanna: Live in Concert Tour.

2007–09: Good Girl Gone Bad and Rated R

In early 2007, Rihanna began work on her third studio album Good Girl Gone Bad.[44] She embraced a new musical direction through uptempo dance tracks produced by Timbaland, will.i.am and Sean Garrett.[45][46] Released in May 2007, the album charted at number two in Australia and the US and topped the charts in multiple countries, including Brazil, Canada, Ireland, Japan, Russia and the UK.[47] The album received the most positive critical reviews of her first three albums.[48] The lead single, “Umbrella“, topped the charts in thirteen countries and remained number one in the UK for ten consecutive weeks, the longest-running number one single since Wet Wet Wet‘s single “Love Is All Around” spent fifteen weeks at the top in 1994.[49][50] It was Rihanna’s first single to be named one of thebest-selling singles worldwide, with sales of over 6.6 million copies.[51][52] The songs “Shut Up and Drive“, “Hate That I Love You” featuring Ne-Yo, and “Don’t Stop the Music” were also released as singles.

Artistry

Music and voice

Rihanna possesses a mezzo-soprano vocal range of three octaves and two notes.[165] While recording tracks for her third studio album, Good Girl Gone Bad (2007), Rihanna took vocal lessons from Ne-Yo. Speaking of the experience she stated, “I’ve never had vocal training, so when I’m in the studio, he’ll tell me how to breathe and stuff… He’ll call out these big fancy words: ‘OK, I want you to do staccato.’ And I’m like, ‘OK, I don’t know what that is.'”[46] Her vocal performance on Loud (2010) received positive reviews from music critics. James Skinner from BBC praised Rihanna’s vocals on the song “Love the Way You Lie (Part II)” and wrote that her voice is powerful and that “it is Rihanna’s vocal – at once commanding, soulful and vulnerable – that anchors the song, and Loud itself”.[166] Andy Gill from The Independent feels that “California King Bed” features her best vocal performance.[167] In a review of Unapologetic, Billboard magazine wrote, “Diamonds finds Rihanna doing one of her throatiest, most impassioned vocals to date, on this inspirational pop ballad.”[168] Jon Caramanica of The New York Times stated, “over the years, as her game face froze in place, her voice cured into a weapon of emotional chill and strategic indifference. It’s decidedly unfriendly, made to give orders”.[169]

Rihanna’s music has encompassed a broad range of genres; including dancehall, reggae and soca, as well as pop, R&B, dubstep, hip hop and electronic dance music.[170] Some of her songs are also inspired through record sampling from other artists.[171] With its provocative subject matter and lyrics,[170] her musical career has been an experiment with new musical ideas and stated that she wants “to make music that could be heard in parts of the world that I’d never been to”.[172] Growing up in Barbados, she wasn’t exposed to a lot of music, mainly reggae, hip-hop, and soca music.[173] At the time of her debut, she recorded songs that were inspired by her Caribbean roots and described her early sound as “a fusion of reggae, hip-hop and R&B, with a little something different thrown in”.[20][170] Her early dancehall roots can be found on her debut album,Music of the Sun (2005), and its follow-up, A Girl like Me (2006).[174] She later experimented with pop, dubstep and rock music while shifting her musical style and image away from the Barbados island girl.[175] When she moved to the United States, she became exposed to a lot of American music “rock being one of them, and I fell in love with it. [Now] I love rock music.”[173]

Music of the Sun (2005) demonstrates the influence of Rihanna’s musical heritage of the Caribbean. Kelefa Sanneh of The New York Times complimented its combination of dancehall and reggae, who said, “Dancehall reggae sometimes seems like a furiously insular form of music, but … Rihanna is only the latest singer to discover how versatile the genre’s spring-loaded electronic rhythms can be”.[176] Her debut single, “Pon de Replay” features a dancehall-pop mixture that infuses a reggae style, while “If It’s Lovin’ that You Want” talks about a girl seducing a guy to be her boyfriend.[177] Aiming for artistic growth, A Girl like Me (2006) expresses personal experiences that typical 18-year-old girls go through with ballads that were described as elegant and mature.[178] Her third studio album Good Girl Gone Bad (2007) led Sal Cinquemani of Slant Magazine to write that Rihanna “finally figured out that she’s a dance artist and the majority of the album is comprised of uptempo dance-pop” songs like “Push Up On Me” and “Don’t Stop the Music“.[179] It represents a departure from the Caribbean sound of her previous albums, and is described as a turning point in her career.[180][181] While the first half of the record shares a lot of 1980s pop influences with songs like “Don’t Stop the Music” and “Shut Up and Drive“, the second half retreats into standard R&B.[182][183]

Recorded after the assault by her then-boyfriend, Chris Brown, Rated R (2009) had a much darker tone and was filled with various emotions she experienced throughout 2009.[184] In Loud (2010), Rihanna reflects on the fun and energetic vibe she had while recording the album.[185] The album is a mixture of ballads, party anthems, and empowering love songs.[186] Talk That Talk (2011) was similar to Rated R, as both contain hip hop, R&B, dancehall, and dubstep genres.[187] Loud and Talk That Talk also saw her return to her dancehall roots, evident in the tracks like “Man Down” and “Watch n’ Learn“.[188] She also branched out into house music with tracks like “We Found Love”, “Only Girl (In the World)” and “Complicated.”[189]

Influences

Rihanna has named Madonna as her idol and biggest influence. She said that she wanted to be the “black Madonna” and praised the singer for being able to constantly reinvent herself successfully throughout her career.[190][191] “I think that Madonna was a great inspiration for me, especially on my earlier work. If I had to examine her evolution through time, I think she reinvented her clothing style and music with success every single time. And at the same time remained a real force in entertainment in the whole world.”[190] Another major influence on Rihanna’s music and career has been Mariah Carey, whose song “Hero” she performed when Rihanna was still a teenager at her high school talent show.[192] She revealed that Carey’s song “Vision of Love” “was the song that made [her] want to do music” and that “everything Mariah did, [she] would try to do.”[193][194] She grew up watching videos of reggae legend Bob Marley on television because that’s what they would play in the Caribbean.[195] She stated, “[h]e’s one of my favorite artists of all time […] he really paved the way for every other artist out of the Caribbean”.[196] She built a shrine in her home dedicated to the reggae legend and has covered Marley’s “Is This Love” and Bob Marley & The Wailers‘ “Redemption Song” during her concert tours.[197][198]

During her childhood, she would go around singing Whitney Houston songs and “A Whole New World” into her hairbrush so much that her neighbors started calling her “Robyn Redbreast”.[199] She also stated that one of the first songs she remembers falling in love with was Houston’s version of “I Will Always Love You” and that it “was really inspiring, and it made me develop a passion for music, so really, she’s partly responsible for me being here in this industry.”[200][201] Rihanna commented that Janet Jackson “was one of the first female pop icons that I could relate to” and that late R&B singer Aaliyah has a huge impact on her style and also complimented on the singers artistry as well.[202][203] Watching Beyoncé on television with Destiny’s Child also inspired Rihanna’s musical career, who was chosen along with R&B recording artistsAmerie and Teairra Marí, to give a tribute performance to the female group at the 2005 World Music Awards.[204][205] Other musical influences and idols include Celine Dion,[206] Alicia Keys,[207] Prince[208] Fefe Dobson,[209][210] and Brandy.[211]

Rihanna takes influence from the different types of music she discovered when she came to America and revealed that rock music was one of the first genres she fell in love with.[173] She commented, “as I grow older, I want to know more about music. I want to discover more types of music”.[182] She cited Brandy’s fourth studio album, Afrodisiac (2004), as her main inspiration for her third album, Good Girl Gone Bad (2007).[182] In her early career, her music contained strong influences of Caribbean music, including reggae anddancehall.[212] The music video of the song “Rude Boy” featured images inspired by her Caribbean roots.[212] She commented that Marilyn Monroe and vintage clothing served as visual inspirations for the music videos for “Hate That I Love You” and “Rehab“.[citation needed]

Videos and stage

Rihanna has worked with music video director Anthony Mandler on more than a dozen music videos, the first being “Unfaithful” (2006).[213] “We’ve done 16 videos together; they’re not all tough, […] Yeah, I mean, I’m known for the ‘Disturbia’s and the ‘Russian Roulette’s and things like that, but ‘Only Girl (In the World)’ is certainly an ethereal kind of empowering, beauty-filled video,” Mandler said.[213] Jocelyn Vena of MTV wrote, “Rihanna, like Madonna, also has a tendency to make truly thought-provoking music videos that fit the songs they represent. Smattered in between glitzier, more glamorous clips, Madge and Ri want us to think about bigger issues”.[189] Jon Bream of the Star Tribune commented “[i]n the tradition of Madonna and Janet Jackson, Rihanna has become the video vixen of the ’00s … Rihanna has perfected the pout, the long-legged strut and trend-setting hairdos that keep women and men alike checking her out on YouTube.”[214] George Epaminondas of InStyle considers Rihanna’s music videos to be “cinematic” due to her “blend of lush island rhythms and swinging pop and … mischievous sensuality.”[215] Tamar Anitai from MTV Buzzworthy listed “Disturbia” at number five on the “Buzzworthy’s Top 5 Most Paranoid Music Videos” and said that “Paranoia never looked so supernaturally sexy!”.[216]

Many of her music videos were shot as short films exploring issues such as love triangles, abuse, and substance abuse romance, including “We Found Love” and “Man Down”.[189] Her music video for “Umbrella” shows Rihanna’s transition into adulthood and her newly adopted image.[217] The “dark, creepy” scenes of “Disturbia” have been compared to Michael Jackson‘s Thriller.[214][218] The video for “Russian Roulette” features Rihanna in a padded room playing a game of russian roulette with her partner. A scene of Rihanna being approached by a speeding car at night was compared to the altercation with Chris Brown.[219] The Caribbean-inspired music video for “Rude Boy” was compared to rapper M.I.A.‘s video “Boyz” by many critics for its colorful aesthetic similarities.[212] In 2011, she released three controversial music videos about sadomasochism, rape, and domestic violence.[220] “Man Down”, which features Rihanna shooting a man in a train station, was criticized by the Parents Television Council.[221] “We Found Love”, which shows Rihanna and her love interest in a drug-filled unhealthy relationship,[219] sparked criticism from the Rape Crisis Centre for its inappropriate message.[222] But Charne Graham of the Houston Press defended the singer, asking, “Why should Rihanna’s music videos get everyone riled up when others’ equally sexual and controversial videos are in rotation? […] she just like[s] to make music videos that give us something to talk about.”[220] She is the first woman to pass two billion cumulative views on the music video website VEVO.[223] As of September 2013, she has accumulated over four billion views on the site.[224]

Denis Armstrong of Canadian Online Explorer commented on her performance at the Ottawa Bluesfest, saying “her show was a Disney-esque choreographed fantasy of non-stop hip-swiveling, sassy attitude and personal endearments and a string of funky, sugar-free hits.”[225] Her performance of “Disturbia” at the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards was ranked tenth best on the MTV Video Music Awards, according to a Billboardpoll.[226] Her revealing leather costumes during her Good Girl Gone Bad Tour were highly criticized by Malaysia’s conservative Islamic party, who recommended that her concert tour should be banned.[227] Whilst commenting on her third album’s accompanying tour, The Times compared Rihanna’s stage wardrobe styling to that of Janet Jackson and called her “a vision of Ann Summers couture in thigh-high boots and a few scraps of black PVC.”[228] In the October 2011 issue ofBritish Vogue, Rihanna said her performance outfits and appearances are all an act; “[t]hat’s not me. That’s a part I play. You know, like it’s a piece of art, with all these toys and textures to play with”.[229]

Public profile

Known for reinventing her style and image, Rihanna’s music and fashion sense are noted by the media.[230] In 2009, New York magazine described Rihanna’s early look as that of a cookie-cutter teen queen, noting she has the ability to shift looks dramatically and with great ease.[231] Around the time of the release of her second studio album, A Girl like Me (2006), many critics felt that Rihanna’s style, sound, and musical material were too similar to those of Beyoncé.[232][233] In an interview with Look magazine, Rihanna spoke about comparisons to Beyonce: “Beyoncé is a great artist and I feel honored to be mentioned in the same sentence, but we’re different performers with different styles”.[234] She revealed during Oprah’s Next Chapter that Def Jam’s pop-princess blueprint made her feel claustrophobic during her early years with the label.[235] According to Rihanna, “I felt like they were giving me a blueprint. […] They had a brand, they had an idea of what they wanted me to be without figuring out who I was.”[236] With the release of her third album, Good Girl Gone Bad (2007), Rihanna dismissed her innocent image for an edgier look with a new hairstyle, which was inspired by Charlize Theron‘s bob cut in the science fiction thriller Æon Flux (2005).[237] She followed the likes of recording artists Janet Jackson andChristina Aguilera who also shed their innocent image for an edgier look and sound.[238]

Nico Amarca of Highsnobiety magazine wrote “over the course of her now 10-year career, [Rihanna] has undergone one of the most significant aesthetic metamorphoses the world has ever seen”.[239] Her image and fashion has changed several times with different hairstyles since the release of her third album.[240][241] She commented that as a child she “used to watch her [mother] get dressed” and that her love and admiration for fashion started with her mom.[242] When putting together her own wardrobe she stated, “It’s become more about taking a risk … I always look for the most interesting silhouette or something that’s a little off.”[243] Jess Cartner-Morley of The Guardian wrote that “Rihanna’s wardrobe is the most talked-about, influential and dissected in pop right now” and that whatever she wears “is immediately reproduced on the high street, because it sells”.[244] Country singer Miranda Lambert admires Rihanna’s fashion and style stating, “I don’t necessarily get inspired by the whole no-bra thing, but I love that you never know what she’s going to wear. It always keeps you guessing, which makes her sassy and interesting.”[245]

In an interview with Alexa Chung during Vogue Festival 2015, Balmain designer Olivier Rousteing praised Rihanna by stylistically comparing her to some of the biggest fashion icons in music history, such as Madonna, David Bowie, Michael Jackson, and Prince.[246] Commenting on the cultural expectation for pop stars to be role models, she said “[being a role model] became more of my job than I wanted it to be. But no, I just want to make music. That’s it”.[229] In a May 2013 interview with MTV, The Vagina Monologues writer and feminist Eve Ensler praised the singer, saying, “I’m a huge Rihanna fan, I think she has a kind of agency over her sexuality and she’s open about her sexuality, she has enormous grace and she’s immensely talented.”[247]

Appearance

Described as one of the sexiest woman of her generation, she revealed that being a sex symbol is not a priority and that “it’s definitely flattering, but also uncomfortable.”[248] Emily Hewett from Metro wrote, “Rihanna is quite possibly [the] most sexiest woman in the world. The 25-year-old songbird can grind like no other, pull off a provocative pose better than a Playboy pro.”[249] Her appearance has landed her on the cover of magazines such as Maxim, FHM, Rolling Stone and GQ.[250] She has appeared in the top ten on Maxims Hot 100 list and on FHMs “100 Sexiest Women in the World” several times.[251][252] In 2007, she was tagged Venus Breeze’s “Celebrity Legs of a Goddess” by Gillette,[253] and was ranked second on People magazine’s list of “10 Best Dressed Stars” the following year.[254]

Stella McCartney writes “She’s one of the coolest, hottest, most talented, most liked, most listened to, most followed, most impressive artists at work today, but she does it in her own stride.

On February 8, 2009, Rihanna’s scheduled performance at the 51st Annual Grammy Awards was cancelled.[369] Reports surfaced that then-boyfriend, singer Chris Brown had physically assaulted her. He was arrested on suspicion of making criminal threats.[370] On March 5, 2009, Brown was charged with assault and making criminal threats.[371] Due to a leaked photograph from the police department obtained by TMZ.com—which revealed that Rihanna had sustained visible injuries—an organization known as STOParazzi proposed “Rihanna’s Law”, which, if enacted, would “deter employees of law enforcement agencies from releasing photos or information that exploits crime victims.”[372] Gil Kaufman of VH1 reported the “nonstop coverage of the Rihanna/Brown case has brought up a number of issues regarding the privacy of alleged victims of domestic violence, including the decision by almost all major news outlets to divulge the identity of the victim—which is not typically done in domestic-violence cases” and discussed the controversial distribution of the leaked photograph.[373] Rihanna was subpoenaed to testify during a preliminary hearing in Los Angeles on June 22, 2009.[374] On June 22, 2009, Brown pleaded guilty to felony assault. Brown received five years probation and was ordered to stay fifty yards (46 meters) away from Rihanna, unless at public events, which then would be reduced to ten yards (nine meters).[375] In February 2011, at the request of Brown’s lawyer and with Rihanna’s consent, Judge Patricia Schnegg modified the restraining order to a “level one order”, which allows the singers to appear at awards shows together in the future.[376][377]

From December 2009 to 2010, Rihanna dated Dodgers baseball player Matt Kemp.[378] Canadian rapper Drake has also dated the singer.[379] In a January 2013 interview with Rolling Stone, Rihanna confirmed that she had rekindled her relationship with Chris Brown,[380] though he remained under probation for the 2009 domestic violence incident.[381] The confirmation followed persistent media speculation throughout 2012 regarding the pair’s reunion.[382][383] In a May 2013 interview, Brown stated that he and Rihanna had broken up again.[384] In 2015, Rihanna briefly dated Travis Scott, a rapper from Missouri City, Texas[385]

Rihanna has stated that she believes in God and that she focuses on obeying God and reading her Bible. She is a fan of Protestant charismatic minister Joyce Meyer.[386][387] In 2015, Rihanna told Harper’s Bazaar that her faith in God has helped her throughout her career.[388]

During her performance at the NCAA March Madness Music Festival, Rihanna expressed her disagreement with Indiana’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act that allows companies and individuals to use their religious beliefs as protection, in case of being accused of discrimination against LGBT people.[389] Rihanna along with numerous other high-profile celebrities featured in an online video entitled “23 Ways You Could Be Killed If You Are Black in America”. The video was released in partnership with the We Are Here Movement and called for action against police brutality.[390]

According to the New York Post, Rihanna filed a lawsuit against Peter Gunis and the firm Berdon LLP for $35 million but settled out of court for more than $10 million.[391] Forbes began reporting on Rihanna’s earnings in 2012, calculating that she earned $53 million between May 2011 and May 2012, for her music, tour, and endorsements.[392] In 2013, Rihanna came in at number 13 on the list with a total earning of $43 million due to endorsements such as vita coco.[393][394][395] In 2015 Rihanna earned $26 million, which resulted in her net worth rising to $160 million by 2016.[396] In July 2016, Forbes magazine placed Rihanna at number 13 on their list of highest paid celebrities, earning $75 million between 2015 and 2016.[397] Rihanna currently lives in Manhattan, New York City and owns apenthouse there that is worth $14 million.[398]
