Rihanna celebrated her 23rd birthday yesterday.
For such a young age, the Barbados native has amassed a huge number of hit songs. She's also drastically altered her image in the last couple of years, shedding her innocent appeal in favor of a harder, edgier, hyper-sexual persona.
It's as if the message is to say, in short, you can't keep this girl down, Chris Brown, and you ain't gettin' any of this ever again. Punk. Whatever you think of the style chameleon personally, her musical success is undeniable.
Here's the birthday girl performing live at the NBA All-Star game last night. Check out her collaboration with Kanye and Drake above and wish her a happy b-day!
