She’s one of the world’s most successful stars, but Rihanna takes nothing for granted. “I used to feel unsafe right in the moment of an accomplishment — I felt the ground fall from under my feet because this could be the end,” shares the singer, 29. “Even now, while everyone is celebrating, I’m on to the next thing.” That never-settle drive has helped RiRi amass a whopping $230 million fortune, and now she’s used a $6.8M slice of it to buy a dream home in the Hollywood Hills.

Situated on nearly a half-acre overlooking LA’s Sunset Strip, the modern, 7,130-square-foot
mansion offers six bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, and unlimited amazing views. The sights inside aren’t too shabby, either. After a long day of work, work, work, work, work … the star can relax by the fireplace in her massive master suite or get her grub on in her new chef worthy kitchen with Brazilian quartzite countertops. The entire guesthouse is currently outfitted as a gym for when Rihanna needs to relieve extra stress. It’s the perfect setup for a secret homebody. “I’m actually very laid back,” she says of her party-girl image. “I love watching TV on a big old couch by myself!”
