Happy 24th Birthday, Rihanna!

by at .  Updated at .

Rihanna celebrated her 24th birthday yesterday.

With over 25 million albums sold and nine #1 hits since 2005, the pride of Barbados is, in no uncertain terms, one of the most successful female recording artists ever.

She's also drastically altered her image in recent years, shedding a once-innocent appeal in favor of a harder, edgier, hyper-sexual persona ... which has only boosted sales.

It's as if Rihanna's message to the world is to say, in short, you can't keep this girl down, and she's gonna do whatever, no pain is forever ... yup, you know this.

Rihanna Quotes

I get asked about it all the time and I’m like, You’re asking, but you know the answer. I don’t even like to address it anymore.

Sometimes you just need your privacy. But it comes with the territory. There's no privacy when you are out in the public.
