Happy 25th Birthday, Rihanna!

by at .

Robyn Rihanna Fenty, best known to fans by simply her middle and stage name, was born in Saint Michael, Barbados, 25 years ago today. Happy birthday!

She began her career as a result of meeting producer Evan Rogers in late 2003.

Yes ... that was 10 years ago now. She's sure come a long way since age 15.

With 25 million-plus albums sold and nine #1 hits, the Caribbean queen is, in no uncertain terms, one of the most successful female recording artists ever.

She's done so having drastically altered her image, shedding a once-innocent appeal in favor of a harder, edgier, hyper-sexual persona ... as you know.

You can't keep this girl down, and she's gonna do whatever. Number of f--ks given? Zero. Case in point: Rihanna and Chris Brown being back together.

Whatever you think of the style chameleon personally or professionally, her success is undeniable - and she's not going anywhere anytime soon.

Be sure to wish her a very happy birthday in the comments below! Then click to enlarge some vintage Rihanna pictures, past and present, as well ...

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.

Rihanna [on rumors that she dated Jay-Z]

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