Barbadian singer and superstar Robyn Rihanna Fenty is a global fashion icon, international superstar, and multi-medium artist. Her chart-topping music has spawned numerous hit singles, like 2007’s “Umbrella” from Good Girl Gone Bad and “Diamond” off of 2012’s Unapologetic. Aside from music, Rihanna has also acted or appeared in various movies and shows, including Ocean’s 8 and NBC’s Saturday Night Live.
It’s no secret that Rihanna is a commanding presence in a room. But just how tall is the Fenty Beauty mogul? Read on for all the answers.
How tall is Rihanna?
Rihanna measures in at 5′ 8,” or 1.73 meters tall. That doesn’t include any high heels or platforms, which can boost Rihanna as high as six feet!
Rihanna may be only slightly taller than average, but her footprint on pop culture is enormous. The fashion icon has had several business ventures in various beauty and fragrance lines, as well as a co-ownership of Jay Z’s celebrity driven, lossless music streaming platform Tidal. And she does, of course, have her own fashion line. After founding Fenty in 2017, Rihanna became the first woman added to luxury fashion conglomerate LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton.
The musician-turned-entrepreneur also has a noted history of philanthropy. She founded the Believe Foundation and Clara Lionel Foundation, and also donated several million dollars toward COVID-19 relief programs in the past year. A 2019 estimate set her net worth at $600 million, leading Forbes to declare her “the wealthiest female musician in the world.”
Whether Rihanna is tall or not may be a matter of perspective. But in terms of her importance to fashion, music, and the world at large, no one comes close.
