Early Life

rihanna early life

During her childhood, she grew up in a three-bedroom bungalow in Bridgetown and sold clothes with her father in a stall on the street for living. However, Rihanna’s father’s  crack cocaine addiction and alcoholism affected Rihanna’s childhood to a great extent. Rihanna used to get in between her father and mother’s fight. Although she was just a little kid she had to face domestic violence her father used to do on her mother.

Rihanna used to have a intensely painful headache during her early childhood.  As a result she had many CT scans for the headaches she suffered. It was so intensely painful that even the doctors used to think it was a tumor. Perhaps it wasn’t. Her health started improving after her parents’ divorce at her age of 14.

Rihanna as a child, used to listen to Caribbean musics like reggae also including American hip-hop and Rhythm-&-Blues(R&B). She had also joined Charles F. Broome Memorial Primary School and Combermere High School. During the days of her school life she loved to sing and hence once won a high-school talent show.

Jay-Z signed the budding vocalist for Rihanna being impressed by her demo songs ” Pon de Replay” and ” The Last Time”. For her professional career, she adopted her middle name, Rihanna.

Although, at the beginning Jay-Z was not convinced, he invited Rihanna  to audition for the label. At the audition, she impressed Jay-Z and his boss L.A.
