*A 22-year-old Boston woman has been making thousands of dollars in endorsements …just because she looks like Rihanna.
Andele Lara has been paid to endorse clothing companies, sneaker brands and she has also landed gigs with hair and accessory companies.
According to The Daily Mail, she can’t step out of her home without being mobbed by people who mistake her for the real thing.
“The comments started in my sophomore year,” she says. “My friend had a magazine with Rihanna on the cover. He held it up to my face and was like ‘You look like her!’ I wasn’t really sure. She was glammed up in a magazine and here I was in my school uniform.”
While Lara has yet to meet the real Rihanna, the two have had an encounter via Instagram after one of the singer’s fans posted a photo of Lara (believing it was Rihanna) and captioned it: “Rare pic of Rihanna.”
Somehow RiRi caught wind of the pic and left a comment saying “OH?!,” causing Rihanna’s Navy to turn on Lara.
Lara is still hopeful that one day she will be able to meet her “twin” and “take a selfie with her.”
