setting the pace

It seems like only a minute since superstar Rihanna’s long-awaited CD, ANTI, dropped but the singer’s new music is already setting the pace for sales and winning awards! Record Industry Association of America (RIAA) Chairman and CEO, Cary Sherman (pictured here with the star) recognizes Rihanna with two awards celebrating the singer as the first and only artist to surpass 100 million RIAA song certifications, and new album ANTI as RIAA Platinum certified. Looks like Rihanna is sitting pretty with a hit record on her hands—and she looks even more gorgeous in her inky new bob hairstyle. Worn super-sleek and detailed with a stark center part, we’re thinking Rihanna’s latest crop is a nod to her Good Girl Gone Bad days—but updated to reflect her edgier ANTI persona.
