Andele Lara is a 22-year-old Boston student who happens to resemble superstar Rihanna, and she gets paid for it.
People started noticing that she looked like the singer around the time when “Umbrella” came out. But once “Loud” was released, Lara started to get the comparisons more and more, according to the Daily Mail.
From Daily Mail:
‘At first, I thought it was funny to take a picture with someone who believed I was her and then make their day. But as Rihanna gets even more famous, the attention just intensifies.’
‘Some people follow me into stores or as I’m driving. Other times fifteen people will swarm at me all at once to take a picture with me.’
‘I do think the attention I get is cool but there have been some scary occasions when some super-fans have followed me on my way to work everyday.’
‘And I must admit there have also been moments when I couldn’t face taking a photo with yet another Rihanna fan. But it really makes their day to think they met Ri-Ri. I’ve never denied anyone a picture.’
Now, she gets approached by clothing companies and has gained $20,000 in contracts with them, all because she looks like Rihanna.
She says: ‘I wouldn’t really say I’ve gone out looking for opportunities, they’ve just come along naturally. I reckon if I put more effort, I would get even more!’
‘I’ve scored hair contracts as well as sneaker, mascara, hair accessories and apparel deals. I also get into clubs for free and I get a lot of free drinks too!’
‘I am grateful for my followers and I love the chance to give them advice. I get tons of fan-mail and messages from people.’
