Rihanna has named Madonna as the pop icon who has inspired her the most.
She praised Madonna for being able to continually reinvent herself successfully after three decades in the industry.
When asked about her inspirations, Rihanna told We Love Pop…
I think that Madonna was a great inspiration for me, especially on my earlier work.
If I had to examine her evolution through time, I think she reinvented her clothing style and music with success every single time. And at the same time remained a real force in entertainment in the whole world.
I think she’s fantastic.”
Like her or not, Rihanna has really tried to pay tribute to the Queen of Pop over the years.
