No. 5: Rihanna – 100 Most Mind-Numbingly Hot Women of 2012
The 24-year-old singer and actress, Rihanna is the youngest solo artist to have 11 No. 1 singles on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and is the highest-selling digital artist in US history, having sold 47,571,000 singles as of 2012. That's hot in itself.
Her feature film debut came as Petty Officer Cora Raikes in the action blockbuster 'Battleship.' Next up, she'll appear in the 3D documentary-concert film 'Katy Perry: Part of Me,' and in the apocalyptic comedy 'End of the World,' written and directed by Seth Rogen.
TIME named her one of the most influential people in the world, while Forbes ranked her as the fourth most powerful celebrity in 2012 with earnings of $53 million.
It's basically raining Rihanna, but the last thing we'd want is an umbrella-ella.
