GOOD GIRL GONE POP
Seventeen when she released “Pon de Replay,” 19 for “Umbrella,” Rihanna accomplished more in her first two decades than many do in a lifetime. Now 25, the Barbados-born pop star is touring the world in support of “Diamonds,” the ethereal lead single that spent three weeks at No. 1 on the charts, “Pour It Up,” the Mike Will–produced banger that’s currently No. 1 in the clubs, and Unapolgetic, the diverse, complicated, uncompromising album that might be her best ever. She’s maturing in front of our eyes, but not in the way that anyone had expected. Catch her tonight with Harlem’s own A$AP Rocky.
