Just because Rihanna is worth a whopping $600 million, doesn’t mean the world-famous musician has forgotten her roots! “Rihanna came from humble beginnings and worked like crazy to get to where she is today,” a source exclusively tells Life & Style magazine, on newsstands now. 

“She’s still the same person she was 20 years ago,” adds the insider. “She’s richer, but fame hasn’t changed her personality.” That said, the Fenty Beauty founder, 31, has no problem enjoying the fruits of her labor. After all, Rihanna certainly deserves it! As of 2019, she has extended her portfolio far beyond the recording studio. RiRi is a singer-songwriter, fashion designer, actress and first and foremost, a businesswoman.

“The way she sees it,” explains the source, “what’s the point in having millions in the bank if you’re not going to spend them?” So, how does Rihanna spend her staggering fortune? Well, on the best of everything, of course! “Rihanna collects cars and loves to go racing in her free time,” explains the source, adding that RiRi is always “generous with friends and splashes out on expensive champagne and the best tables when they’re out.”

As hardworking as the “Diamonds” songstress is, Rihanna also knows how to unwind. “When she switches off, she likes to stay at the best hotels money can buy, whether it’s Sandy Lane in Barbados or Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in France. And she always travels private,” says the source. “Vacations are never done halfheartedly in Rihanna’s world.”

Even with all of the glitz and glamour, RiRi likes to keep it real. “Unlike a lot of celebrities, Rihanna loves to eat,” dishes the insider. “Sure, she tries hot new restaurants, but some days, there’s nothing she enjoys more than sitting home in sweats with some Cheetos or Cup Noodles and watching a movie.”
