Woman Earns $20,000 Because She Looks Like Rihanna on Instagram

Andele Lara is a student from Boston who earned thousands of dollars last year just because she bears an eerie resemblance to a certain “spicy” singer. She’s constantly mistaken for Rihanna and says the only thing the two don’t share in common is a beautiful singing voice.

Well, to be fair, Andele, Rihanna also probably made more than $20,000 from being Rihanna last year. Probably a lot more. Now I just have to think about how much money Rihanna made last year and it just upsets me. Thanks, Andele Lara. Thanks a lot.


As BuzzFeed reports, Lara’s Instagram, which boasts more than 30,000 followers, is now sadly private (due to a little dust-up with Rihanna’s navy over Lara’s look-alike status) but she says she would give up everything in order to make a career out of being a Rihanna impostor. It seems she’s already well on her way; clothing companies have been paying her lots of money to promote their brands, and with people not being able to tell the two apart, she’s probably going to ride the gravy train all the way to 30, 40, or even 50 thousand a year. The sky’s the limit, right?
