Happy Birthday, Rihanna! Why 25 Will Be Her Best Year Yet

Rihanna birthday

Happy birthday, Rihanna! The singer turned 25 on Feb. 20.


This sultry songstress shows no signs of slowing down!

Rihanna turned 25 today, Feb. 20 — and she certainly has loads to celebrate on this birthday. With her massive success, numerous hit songs — and it almost being impossible to turn on the TV and not see her face — we have a feeling 25 may just be the Barbadian beauty's best year ever.

And why's that? Well, here are just a few of the MANY reasons:

Budding Fashionista
Since hitting the music scene in 2005, Rihanna's been quite the force. But 2013 marked something new for the singer — the debut of her own fashion line. Last week, Rihanna presented her first women's clothing line during London Fashion Week for British street brand, River Island. "The British high street has the most fashionable kids. In the UK they have so much fashion and I feel like the high end designers are inspired by these kids so I figured why not go to the source if you want to stay ahead of the trend," she's said about the collaboration.

Music's Leading Lady
Whatever song Rihanna puts out, count on it being a hit. "Diamonds" was the lead single off her seventh studio album, Unapologetic — and its become her 12th No. 1 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart! Since its Nov. 19 release, the album has also released successful tracks "Stay" and "Pour It Up." We can only wonder what other hits she has yet to release from the record!

World-Wide Sensation
How's she keeping busy in 2013? Two weeks after celebrating the big 2-5, Rihanna will embark on her fifth concert tour, properly titled Diamonds World Tour. The chart-topper will kick off in Buffalo, N.Y. on March 8 and tour through July 28, where she'll end up in Helsinki, Finland.

Grammys Golden Gal
February's been very good to RiRi! The pop star took home her seventh Grammy Award for Best Short Form Music Video for "We Found Love."

A MAC Starlet
Fashionista, musician, actress...and now makeup creator! RiRi announced her partnership with MAC Cosmetics on her 25th birthday. "Whatever color you want, it's like 'Let's go to MAC.' I've been using MAC on tour for such a long time it was natural fit for me. I have always loved makeup, and I always said that if I do it, I want to do it with a credible brand."
