About Rihanna's Real Height

Rihanna is a tall woman -- that much be deduced just by just looking at her. But how tall is she exactly? Well, she once claimed to be 5'8" tall. We are at Brie don't put much stock in celebrities' claims -- lots of celebrities claim to be taller than they really are. Take Justin Bieber for example. He claims to be 5'9" -- 5'10" but actually looks closer to 5'8" than any other number.

But Rihanna's claim seems to be an honest one. We compared her to Eminem (almost 5'8"), Katy Perry (5'7"), Nicki Minaj (5'2"), Drake (6"), and many more such celebrities, and found that the 5'8" listing suits her perfectly. Which makes her around as tall as Justin Bieber, Eminem, Ed Sheeran, Kanye West, Dua Lipa, etc.

"I think I'm like most people - we fear the unknown and the things that have yet to come to pass, which are the very things that don't deserve to be feared. When you give God complete control, it's very hard not to be fearless."
