And this is a picture of Andele Lara, a 22-year-old student from Boston who gets approached on a regular basis by screaming fans who think she's Rihanna.
Andele says she generates a lot of stares and whispers from random strangers on a daily basis. In fact, she can't go 24 hours without hearing the pop superstar's name.
Andele claims to be an ugly duckling as a child, but her friends started to see her uncanny resemblance to the world-famous diva when she was 15.
Because of her remarkable likeness, several companies have offered Andele huge sums of money to endorse their products. Guys left and right have also been asking her out and buying her drinks, and her Instagram page has garnered 18,000 followers in the past year alone.
Looking like Rihanna, however, has its downside. Andele often finds herself being stalked by strangers as she walks into a store or drives on the way to school. She's also endured quite a bit of bashing from Rihanna haters online, forcing her to make her account private.
Andele has yet to meet Rihanna in person, but the superstar once acknowledged the similarities between them when a fan posted a photo of Andele on her Instagram page.
She's been toying with the idea for years, but Andele is now convinced that she could actually make a living as a Rihanna impersonator. The bad news is that her singing voice is nowhere near as good as RiRi's, but the good news is she's thinking of taking singing lessons soon.
All we have to say is, do you Andele! Do you! We wish you nothing but the best.
