Rihanna Ranked at #8 Forbes Most Talked-About Women Of 2012


Content curator News360 ran the numbers to track the news-making women of 2012—from celebrities to politicians, what ladies dominated the news cycle this year? Rihanna landed at #8 with classy promotion and not like the other bitches.

No. 8 Rihanna: 10,355 headlines

The Barbados-born diva lands on our list for the first time thanks to hits including “We Found Love” and “Talk That Talk,” as well as endorsements with the likes of Vita Coco and Nivea. Her fragrance, Reb’l Fleur, adds millions more to her coffers, as does her heavy touring schedule that included over 85 shows in the past 12 months. With over 53 million Facebook fans, she’s second only to Eminem by FORBES count. But it wasn’t just her massive commercial success that made headlines in 2012—Rihanna famously spoke out in an interview with Oprah Winfrey on her controversial relationship with singer Chris Brown, who was arrested in 2009 for brutally assaulting the “Diamonds” chanteuse. The pair reportedly reunited in 2012 and the on-again-off-again relationship has been an ongoing saga for the Hollywood press.
